Nutanix are all set to acquire cloud and desktop application facilitator Frame in order to provide DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) to the former’s enterprise customers across various cloud environments. With this acquisition, Nutanix will be leveraging Frame’s cloud-native architecture to extend services to their Xi Cloud as well as Google Cloud Platforms and provide simple, scalable cloud applications.
According to research giant Gartner, 2019 will see more than 50% of customers deploying cloud-based applications on desktops. They say that this progress is a result of mid-sized organizations deploying mature cloud strategies to manage their workloads.
Nutanix agree with this trend and believe that the acquisition of Frame will enable them to deliver desktop-based cloud applications to their enterprise customers at ease by leveraging the latter’s auto-scaling functionality. They say that customers can instantly access these applications from the online marketplace and start using them without any hassles.
Speaking about this acquisition, Sunil Potti, Chief Product and Development Officer at Nutanix, commented:
Frame’s cloud-native technology represents everything we believe to be true in the market – customers want easy-to-use, high performance and cost optimized solutions that just work across the entirety of their infrastructure.
