Frame, a cloud-applications company and one Architosh has already done several feature articles on, this week announced a new powerful option for engineers, designers and architects—the PRO 64GB cloud hosted computer. Now users who require the most demanding applications can run them in the Frame cloud through standards-based web browsers on Mac OS X, Windows and other operating systems.
Frame PRO 64GB: What It Is
Frame Pro 64GB is optimized for modern, multi-core simulation and rendering applications. It packs 2 Intel Xeon CPUs, 4 NVIDIA GRID GPUs, 64GB of memory, and an SSD flash drive in a cloud-based system that users can access on demand for under $4 per hour.
”Conventional rendering hardware and high-end virtualization solutions come with a very high price tag,” says Nikola Bozinovic, CEO of Frame. “Our new Pro 64GB offering allows designers to shift to powerful visual workstations on demand. Access to stunning interactive photorealistic rendering has never been easier.”
This new option extends the line of Frame configurations, which now range from Air 4GB, a basic virtual computer for running applications like Microsoft Office, to Pro 64GB, a quad GPU-powered visual supercomputer for running heavy graphics loads.
“I’m done with expensive, bulky dedicated rendering hardware. By using Frame, I get the juice I need when I need it, without cooling fans that sound like jet engines taking off in my office all with direct access to our storage on Dropbox and Box,” says Adam O’Hern, Head of Design at Mechanical Color. ”When I don’t run apps, I don’t have to pay for it. Frame lets me use my Macbook the way I used to use the giant PC tower in my closet. There’s no going back.”

Subscribers to Frame Standard and Plus plans can now access the Frame Pro 64GB system with the click of a button. Running applications on this new visual supercomputer costs under $4 per hour. Companies interested in trying Frame can get started for free by signing up at www.fra.me.
