This section provides an overview of the functions of the JSDN Platform and discusses the features that help resellers and enterprises to aggregate, deliver, and manage cloud services. It also provides an overview of the basic terminologies and the key roles associated with the operation and management of the platform.

Reseller Store

The Jamcracker Platform is a multi-tier and multi-tenant system allowing you to create separate store portals, including portals for reseller partners and enterprise customers.

Each Store portal is independent of others, supporting different branding, structure, services, prices and integration capabilities.

Thanks to the multi-tiered catalog functionality, a master catalog can be used to source any or all services to each of the stores, and each store can set their own pricing and promotions for these services. Resellers can also source their own services.

Thanks to multi-tiered pricing and settlement, you have full control over the costs and pricing, including a view into vendor settlement costs to make sure everyone gets paid appropriately.

Resellers and managed service providers can choose to give users self-service to ordering and provisioning cloud services, or alternately can offer a white glove service where these functions can be done by the reseller on behalf of the customer.

Enterprise Store

The JSDN Enterprise Store is your corporate online store which allows you to order corporate approved cloud applications for your department in a secure and effective way. The store catalog displays the cloud applications that have business applicability for your organization. As an administrator, you can place a request for the services available on the catalog. The enterprise administrator reviews your requests, then approves or rejects the requests. Once the request is approved, the enterprise administrator assigns the services to your department. You can assign the services to yourself or your users (employees).
