Requirements

This guide discusses the networking deployment models that Frame supports when you create a Frame account.

Deployment Models

There are five primary deployment models (3 for public cloud and 2 for Nutanix AHV clusters). Customers must decide which deployment model best suits their use case(s) and security policies. Each Frame account can be created using a different deployment model.

For further details on each deployment model and the networking requirements, select the specific hyperlink in the table below.

Considerations

Customers provisioning Frame accounts in their own network (customer-managed networking) in public cloud should select either Private Networking or Private Networking with SGA deployment models.

Deployment ModelDescription
Public NetworkingAll workload VMs (Sandbox, Production, and Utility Server VMs) hosted in a public cloud infrastructure have public IP addresses and are directly accessed by users from the Internet
Public Cloud with Private NetworkingAll workload VMs hosted in a public cloud infrastructure only have private IP addresses. Users must access the workload VMs through a private network connection.
Public Cloud with Private Networking and SGAAll workload VMs hosted in a public cloud infrastructure have private IP addresses. However, users can access the workload VMs through a Streaming Gateway Appliance (SGA) from the Internet.
Nutanix AHV with Private NetworkingAll workload VMs hosted on a Nutanix AHV cluster only have private IP addresses. Users must access the workload VMs through a private network connection.
Nutanix AHV with Private Networking and SGAAll workload VMs hosted on a Nutanix AHV cluster have private IP addresses. However, users can access the workload VMs through a Streaming Gateway Appliance (SGA) from the Internet.

Dynamic vs. Static IP Addresses

All Frame-managed workload VMs:

require access to a DHCP service to obtain a dynamic IP address when they are created.

The Frame appliances:

can be assigned static IP addresses.
