The importance of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) has been underscored in recent years due to their versatility, gaming, high-performance computing, and AI capabilities. Looking under the hood of your laptop, smartphone, smartwatch, or gaming console, you'll likely find a GPU, a H.264, H,265, AV1 hardware-based decoder, or both. The benefits are clear for end users, and a great user experience is fundamental expectation for many. This explains why every tech enthusiast is eager to equip their gaming rigs with the latest and greatest GPUs from AMD, Intel, or NVIDIA. These GPUs are critical for high-end workstations and gaming, where acceleration can significantly improve application performance and user experience.
Microsoft OneDrive is an online cloud storage service that integrates with the Windows Operating System as a default location for saving files, such as photos or documents, across multiple devices. While the basic functionality of OneDrive requires no administrative action, your business requirements may be more unique and/or extensive.
As more customers choose to host their infrastructure in Azure, there is an increasing demand for supporting Azure AD-joined and Hybrid-Joined devices with Frame. In this solution guide, we will demonstrate how Frame can assist partners and customers in leveraging the advantages of both on-premises and cloud environments through the utilization of hybrid-joined Frame workloads.
To provide a comprehensive understanding of how Frame integrates with hybrid-joined devices, we will begin by providing context about our test environment configuration. While your environment may differ, the objective is to offer insights into how Frame can be integrated with your own unique setup.
Hybrid Joined Devices are supported with Windows 10, Windows 11 (excluding Home Editions), and Windows Server 2016/2019/2022 operating systems. More specifications and details around Azure AD Hybrid Joined devices can be found in Microsoft’s official documentation. Customers can set up Hybrid-Joined devices not only with Azure IaaS, but with GCP, AWS and on-premises AHV as well.
Microsoft 365 Apps (formerly known as Microsoft Office 365 Apps) is the most common office productivity suite installed by customers in their Frame environments. While Microsoft 365 App installation on physical laptops/desktops and persistent virtual desktops is straightforward, Frame administrators need to perform an additional configuration step to Microsoft 365 Apps once they have been installed in a non-persistent Frame account gold image.
Azure AD Conditional Access (CA) rules can be implemented to provide an additional layer of security by integrating with the virtual machines (VMs) deployed by the Frame orchestrator. Administrators can define conditions that must be met before users can access certain applications and/or resources. By combining consistent IP addresses with Azure AD CA rules, organizations can better safeguard their VMs and protect against potential security threats.
The following documentation will cover the implementation of the SentinelOne (S1) antivirus (AV) solution with Frame. We will cover two main areas of S1 integration.
- The Console
- The Agent
We will focus on how to deploy SentinelOne antivirus to a Frame DaaS/VDI environment and how the items mentioned above can impact Frame’s normal operation. In this guide, we will review the console and main areas of focus relevant to Frame and provide a set of detailed steps to take when integrating S1 with the Frame Platform. This guide will also cover any known issues to date with S1 and the Frame Platform, with recommended actions (where applicable) and troubleshooting steps.
In Part 1, we setup the Frame Session API, wired it up to a button, created EventListeners for session-related happenings, and even told our users what as going on. So far, we've mostly avoided any type of error handling (or styling but we'll get to that shortly).
Microsoft FSLogix is a set of solutions that enhance, enable, and simplify persistent and non-persistent Windows computing environments. FSLogix solutions are appropriate for virtual environments in both public and private clouds. Additionally, FSLogix can enable greater portability of computing sessions.
If you're familiar with Frame, you probably know how awesome it is that we can stream high-performance sessions to any modern browser. While streaming Apps, Windows, and Linux desktops to a browser is neat, I'm here to walk you through how you can stream Frame to any website.
