What is HC10?

HC10, the latest addition to the Hosting Controller family of products is a true hybrid control panel aimed at providing a perfectly aligned solution for managing and selling Cloud and On-Premises products and extends a single pane of glass to both 1-Tier and 2-Tier Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partners for managing, selling, billing, metering and provisioning directly into Office 365. It also serves as a unified platform for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) delivery served off Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi hypervisors and Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) public Clouds. With an N-tier user structure and an API focused approach, it completely transforms the way companies orchestrate their Cloud workflows and sell a fusion of Cloud, IaaS, SaaS, Web and Microsoft Enterprise products (Exchange, Skype for Business, SharePoint and Dynamics CRM) downstream to their customer base.
