The initial setup and following management, as well as the resources assignment and reassignment of the Cloud Servers contracted by the CLIENT will be done through the panel control provided by CLOUDING.IO at their disposal. From this control panel, the CLIENT will be able to perform on the Cloud Servers actions such as create, erase, start, restart, stop and access the dashboard of the Contracted Cloud Servers and related services available for the CLIENT.
