The company’s channel team will walk partners through a brief demo of ViaWest’s cloud portal featuring self-service tools that allow clients transparency into their environment to view system reports and provision ViaWest or AWS cloud resources quickly and easily. The team also will be showcasing ViaWest’s cloud-based disaster recovery-as-a-service offerings, and explain how easy it is to administer, fail over and fail back using self-provisioning tools.
