A CloudShare Channel is a dedicated set of resources and policies which can be made available to specific Teams, enabling them to access any Environments assigned to it.
A Channel is a CloudShare Project which has been created with very tight controls. This makes it easy and highly cost-effective to distribute a Channel (and all of its resources) to a broad range of business users, for example:
Channel program partners
Product resellers and distributors
Outsides sales organizations
With access to your Channel, a business partner can easily access your solutions and promote them. They can create their own custom Environments to address the unique requirements of each of their prospects.
The CloudShare Channel you create will transparently control key components of the Environments which are made available to partners, as well as manage resource usage limits.
To assist you in managing Channel costs, CloudShare also provides a comprehensive Channel Spending Dashboard as part of its analytics and reporting package.
A Channel can be assigned to multiple Channel Managers, who in turn can create Teams and Team Members who will actively distribute the controlled Channel resources to their prospects.
Only an Account Manager can create a Channel.
To enable CloudShare Channels for your account, contact your sales or support representative.
