The CCR cloud is not designed for novice users.   Users are expected to possess working knowledge and expertise in system administration to effectively secure, configure, and use their virtual server instances. Please refer to this knowledgebase for documentation and startup information as well as the enormous volume of info available online from the Amazon Web Services support group and the OpenStack Documentation.  If you still have a question, contact CCR Help and we’ll be happy to answer a quick question or two.  If you or your project team need additional help getting started, anticipate having lots of questions along the way, or you’d like us to do some work for you (such as building your image so that it’s all set to go), consulting is available as an option when you start your subscription.  We can help you estimate the number of consulting hours to include with your subscription. Consulting may also be added after starting your subscription.
