Since they started coming up in CAD in the Cloud discussions earlier this year, Frame (fra.me) has shown no signs of slowing down their pursuit of allowing users to put any Windows application in their own personal Cloud.
Among other reasons why the platform has been of interest is because it will allow users of CAD software offerings that aren’t currently Cloud-supported – such as SolidWorks or Solid Edge – the ability to work from any internet-connected device in the world without being tethered to a particular workstation.
Today, company CEO Nikola Bozinovic (you can read our earlier interview with Bozinovic here) has just sent word to SolidSmack that Frame is now available in two distinct plans – Frame Personal and Frame for Business – for both individuals and teams to install, manage, and share their desktop applications using nothing but a browser.
“After more than three years of development and with recent funding of $10 million from Columbus Nova Technology Partners and Bain Capital Ventures, Frame is ready to transform end user computing in the cloud,” said Bozinovic. “With today’s worldwide beta launch we are realizing our vision of building the most powerful and easiest to use cloud workspace. It’s a massive step towards the future in which anyone with an Internet connection will be able to access the infinite compute and graphics power of the cloud with a single click.”
Aimed at helping teams and companies instantly deliver any Windows application to any internet-connected device including PCs, Macs, Androids and iOS devices, the platform also helps organizations avoid the hassle of purchasing, configuring and operating expensive virtualization infrastructure. The company has also been working with NVIDIA to deliver full graphics capabilities from the Cloud without sacrificing visual performance.
“Frame is simplifying the process of delivering graphics-intensive applications from the cloud for corporate IT and software-as-a-service companies,” said Andrew Cresci, general manager of the NVIDIA GRID business at NVIDIA. “Frame uses NVIDIA GRID technology to stream applications from the cloud, rather than downloading and installing them, which provides the benefits of increased data security, any-device portability and lower maintenance costs.”
Frame Personal plans start at $9.99 month and Frame for Business plans start at $12.99 per user per month.
