Scenario D. Managing Resellers

Reseller is a company that uses hardware resources of a service provider to render services to other companies in Veeam Service Provider Console. Reseller has similar capabilities to those of a service provider but can perform only tasks that target assigned companies and that lie within allocated resource quotas.

Usage Scenario

Consider the following scenario: as an MSP, you plan to delegate management of backup and recovery operations to a reseller. You want to create an account for a reseller, allocate resources and assign a client company. Also, you will limit the number of companies the reseller can manage.

To avoid running out of instances and to calculate charges for a reseller, you plan to track the number of instances that reseller clients consume.
