Leveraging Frame Admin API to Stick to your Public Cloud Budget

In a previous blog post, I showed how you could use Frame Admin API to monitor Frame accounts that had running instances because of misconfigured account capacity settings. This could lead to spending more on your cloud infrastructure than is needed. In this blog, I will demonstrate how you can use the Frame Admin API to identify and delete user volumes that have not been used in a while. Periodically removing unused volumes can help keep cloud storage costs down and can make sure that your data retention policies are being appropriately followed.

Implement a CI/CD Pipeline using Frame APIs

Continuous Deployment (CD) is a software development practice which aims to ensure that code changes or software updates can be safely and quickly deployed to a production environment. CD is only part of a common industry practice called Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery/Deployment (CI/CD). The goal of CI/CD is to automate the build, test, and deployment of software applications, by using a set of tools and practices.

Leverageing Frame Admin API to Stick to your Public Cloud Budget

The Frame Education team uses public cloud infrastructure to conduct labs that demonstrate the power and capabilities of Frame. Sometimes during the course of these labs, students change the capacity settings of their Frame lab accounts to have machines running 24x7. Since these machines are in a public cloud, this can cause unnecessary and unexpected cloud expenses. To combat this, I developed a script to check all of the Frame accounts in the Frame Education customer entity and send alerts to a Slack channel if an account has a machine setup to run outside the hours of the Frame Lab. This allows the Frame instructors to identify and shutdown machines running outside of the lab's hours and shut them down. In this blog, I will go over how I used the Frame Admin API to accomplish this.
