Upsell with Cloud
You’ve heard from your customers, or their software developers, that they want to automate their workflows using the cloud. Rather than force them to deal with filing support tickets for every operation they want to do, you can have a full-featured, industry standard cloud platform available to them.
Not only does this automatically increase the value of your infrastructure offering to your customers, it also enables you to provide even more value-added-services such as DevOps tooling and integration on top of your infrastructure.
Platform9’s Clarity user-interface is written in HTML5 and can be easily customized with CSS stylesheets. In addition, you can also choose to expose your own user interface by leveraging OpenStack’s industry standard REST APIs that are exposed by the Platform9 service.
In addition to the UI, you can now offer a variety of developer friendly ways to access your cloud offering, including:
- OpenStack CLIs
- DevOps tools such as vagrant, packer, terraform
- Automation tools such as puppet, chef, salt and ansible
You can also easily adjust the permissions available to different customers and end users by using Platform9’s pre-defined roles.
