In order for the new company to be able to make backups, you need to assign it backup resources, so click the toggle next to Cloud backup resources (and a new menu point appears called Backup resources).

Click on +Add to add the new resources. A new window will appear, where you need to specify the following:

  • A friendly name for the repository where the backups of your customer will be stored
  • From the drop-down you need to choose the repo that you need
  • You may specify a quota, the amount of storage space that the given customer can use. E.g. you, as a reseller bought 1 TB quota from your service provider, but you need to distribute that among multiple companies, so by specifying a quota here, you can control the storage consumption of the customer.
  • You can also set a limit to the number of computers which are backed up
  • You can also enable WAN acceleration through the SP’s VCC server (recommended for faster transfers)
