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.
|OS Image Source||Supported Infrastructures||Considerations|
|Bring Your Own (BYO)||Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Nutanix AHV||Requires preparation and registration of image|
BYO Azure images can be less than the 128 GiB Microsoft Azure images (30 GiB to 2048 GiB)
|Frame-provided||Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure||Do not need your own OS image at Frame account creation|
In both Frame-provided and BYO OS image options, customers are responsible for OS licensing, application licensing, and OS and application updates.
