Microsoft Backs Frame For Browser-Based, Azure Hosted Desktops

Microsoft is one of the backers in a funding round for a new startup, Frame, which is developing software which lets companies host virtual desktops in Microsoft Azure, as well as Amazon Web Services. Frame announced a $16M funding round on Wednesday, which included Bain Capital Ventures, Microsoft Ventures and In-Q-Tel, along with CNTP. Frame's software lets companies deploy virtual applications and desktops, all running legacy applications, from their browser; that software lives in the cloud, on either Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
