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.  

 

You may view System Requirements for HC10 and as always, we welcome your feedback.
