VMware has announced a partnership with Frame in order to make Windows apps streamable from the Cloud. The announcement was made on VMworld earlier this week. As per the partnership, Frame will be powering VMware’s brand new App Express service. The service is a part of Workspace ONE.
The App Express service will make it possible for organizations to rapidly deploy and stream heavy Windows applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk Maya, and Microsoft Office, among others. The clients can access these streams via any web browser, without the need of any additional plugin. According to Frame, these applications will run as smoothly on the client’s end as they would on a personal desktop computer or a workstation.
VMware‘s partnership with Frame promises to add several functionalities to Workspace ONE’s App Express service. The first and most notable improvement will, of course, be the ability to securely access Windows applications via a typical web browser, without the need of any special third-party client software. Also, pushing updates will be relatively hassle free, as it can be done by patching a single master image and publishing it to end users. All this can be done with a single click and with virtually no downtime.
The service also allows for publishing applications via Frame’s cloud-native control panel. It also easily connects to several popular cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box.
However, one of the biggest attractions of this service will undoubtedly be its ‘Pay as you grow’ model. Rather than having to invest on technology that they most likely won’t be needing for years, companies have the option to pay for what they need, and scale up as needed.
