Let us take you on a short tour of the self-provisioning features of PrimaCloud. During the tour, we will create the infrastructure for a 2-tier LAMP application (like Sugar CRM or WordPress) and start it in the PrimaCloud datacenter. This PrimaCloud user has previously set up an account with ENKI.
A video of this process is in production for release soon.
