The OS33 platform consists of four critical components; Cloud Connector, Cloud Control Panel, Application Delivery, and Webtop GUI. The platform helps enable providers to have access to cloud-based infrastructure and turn it into business-ready Web and Windows-based applications. From a single interface, MSPs can provision servers, deploy and package custom applications, select from a broad catalog of pre-integrated business software, and activate third-party SaaS offerings.
