The service is described as an Australian alternative to Amazon AWS. It provides a platform for application hosting and online data storage in the cloud, with capabilities for virtual server installations and shared file repositories. Cloud Compute functionality includes establishing and configuring a virtual machine, then installing and managing software using those resources. Cloud Storage functionality includes creating storage structures, setting access permissions, and uploading, replacing, and deleting files.
API methods support creating and configuring virtual machines and managing applications running on those platforms. Methods also support establishing storage locations and access criteria, with full create-retrieve-update-delete (CRUD) controls. The API gives complete control of descriptive metadata assigned and maintained for all resources on the platform.
