Design a CloudConnect Environment in Six Steps

CloudConnect is designed with the capability to setup and deploy a comprehensive cloud hosted infrastructure and cloud desktop environment within minutes. Partners follow these six steps prior to their users logging in.

Step 1:

Choose Your Architecture

Choose between the mspCloud or Private Domain architecture for your user group.

Determine if the new user group can be added to your organization's mspCloud, or if the environment requires its own private domain.
Step 2:

Choose A Storage Policy

Choose between the Basic, Business, and Enterprise Policies to meet the resiliency requirements of your user group.

Each Storage Policy provides a different level of resiliency, data protection, and disaster recovery. Learn more about Storage Policy specifics here.
Step 3:

Provision Servers

Within your management portal, provision the size and number of virtual machines adequate for your servers and desktop hosts.

Allocate cores and memory in any increment, allowing you to meet the needs of your user group. Flexible infrastructure allows you to customize the  deployment.
Step 4:

Allocate Storage

Storage is the total amount of data across the environment. All Storage is subject to virtual machine-level data protection snapshots according to your selected Storage Policy tier.

You may allocate data in 20GB increments. Billing is based upon the amount of allocated data. Data protection terms and replication correspond to the Storage Policy level chosen.
Step 5:

Provision Users

Build user groups and add Cloud Desktop users within Active Directory. The Windows Desktop is highly optimized for a user-friendly and familiar experience

A Citrix host is ready to deploy should it be required. Billing is based on the number of Clous Desktop user accounts that are active. You may add or terminate users in Active Directory at any time.
Step 6:

Install Applications

Select any Microsoft desktop or server application from the CloudConnect catalog, and install any third-party applications.

CloudConnect provides Microsoft SPLA licensing, making available any Microsoft application on a month-to-month basis. The platform is compatible with most any third-party line- of-business application.

 

Schedule a meeting with a CloudConnect engineer to discuss the appropriate design and necessary resources for an environment.
