Frequently Asked Questions

Can I deploy on AWS, Azure or GCP?

Yes, the number of users you can invite to participate in your Frame trial using your own AWS, Azure, or GCP cloud accounts (IaaS) or using your own Nutanix on-prem infrastructure with AHV is unlimited. For your own protection, the default virtual machine limit for the trial is set to 5 VMs (similar to how limits work with your IaaS provider). If you need to raise the VM limit, simply email frame-onboarding@nutanix.com with your account name and the number of VMs you wish to use. You will need to check with your IaaS provider to ensure those limits are raised as well. See details in our articles on BYO IaaS:

Can I really set up Frame with unlimited users during the 30-day trial?

Yes, the number of users you can invite to participate in your Frame trial using your own AWS, Azure, or GCP cloud accounts (IaaS) or using your own Nutanix on-prem infrastructure with AHV is unlimited. For your own protection, the default virtual machine limit for the trial is set to 5 VMs (similar to how limits work with your IaaS provider).

Can I still use the Frame trial if I don't have any IaaS accounts or Nutanix on-prem infrastructure?

Yes, we provide an option for you to try Frame with our own IaaS accounts. You will receive up to \ worth of IaaS credits at no cost to you. You can use these credits with AWS, Azure, or GCP. When you sign up for the trial, you'll be given an option to request a promo code which you will then use to start the trial with the IaaS credits. Be aware that this option requires you to submit your credit card information. The amount of IaaS credit we provide is sufficient for a few users to try out the system. As soon as you consume the IaaS credits, your trial will expire. From there, you can easily subscribe to continue. While there is no limit to the number of users for this trial option, the credits will be consumed quickly if you decide to start with more than just a few users.

Can I access all features of Frame during the trial?

Yes - the free trial includes access to all generally available (GA) features of the Frame service. Features marked with Early Access (EA) should not be accessed during the trial. Also, please note that for features involving integration with your own systems (e.g. domain controllers, private networks, on-prem infrastructure, custom cloud networking) - we do not include any consulting, integration, or troubleshooting services with the trial.

Is full Frame support included during the trial?

You are welcome to access all Frame documentation at docs.fra.me. You may also send questions to frame-onboarding@nutanix.com, but our support SLAs do not apply during the trial. Also, integration, troubleshooting, consulting, and other professional services are not included in the trial. Once you subscribe to the paid Frame service, you will be given access to our Support Portal where you can submit tickets to Nutanix Support, governed by our published Support SLA.

You may also purchase Nutanix Xpert Services to assist you with your deployment (this is recommended for implementations that require integration with your own on-premises resources such as domain controllers and file servers, private networking, etc.).

Can I convert my trial account into a paid subscription?
Yes, at any point during the trial or within one week after completing the trial, you can choose to subscribe either directly online via credit card or you can place a PO with your chosen Nutanix partner.
Do you provide services to assist with onboarding and implementation for a production deployment?
Yes, Nutanix Xpert Services provides a range of EUC VDI assessment, design, deployment, migration, and operational review services to help you design, onboard, and implement Frame. Further details, including datasheets, are available at [Nutanix Xpert Services Virtual Desktop Modernization](https://www.nutanix.com/support-services/consulting-services/virtual-desktop-modernization) page.
