Customers can deploy their applications on Frame-provided OS images if using a public cloud infrastructure or bring your own (BYO) OS images. The following table describes the options and considerations for each option.

BYO Azure images can be less than the 128 GiB Microsoft Azure images (30 GiB to 2048 GiB)

In both Frame-provided and BYO OS image options, customers are responsible for OS licensing, application licensing, and OS and application updates.
