Our online Cloud Provisioning Portal empowers users to manage their cloud resources through a user-friendly web interface offering full self-service capabilities to deploy, configure, maintain and scale resources as needed.
The Provisioning Time Objective (PTO) for deploying new virtual machines (VMs) is dependent on the size of the machine being provisioned, however, a typical VM can be provisioned in less than 5 minutes.
