Use cases

The order page offered by CaseLayer is dedicated to cloud providers and their customers.
With the innovative order form, the choice of the appropriate server is an extremely quick and easy matter – it takes less than one minute. All parameters necessary for ordering the right VPS are placed on one page, with no need to switch between pages. In this way, the buyer has unlimited opportunities to make sure that the selected server properties are suitable throughout the ordering process. When modifying particular checkboxes, only the one subject to modification is changed, while the rest remain unchanged.

A customer ordering a server may specify a wide range of its parameters, including:
• location in which the server is to be established (continent – country – region/ city);
• operating system according to specific categories (e.g. most popular, x64 bit, x32 bit);
• sales plan to specify the server’s price and purpose;
• additional options, e.g. firewall, DoS protection, backups, iPv4 networking.

VPS providers can add and remove servers, change their parameters, and adjust checkboxes to suit their customers’ needs.
The fields for the data needed to complete the server ordering process are located on the same page as the VPS details. The buyer has an unlimited preview of the selected parameters and the data entered. Automatic validation of data needed to create an individual customer account and data regarding payment details enables the buyer to avoid errors when placing an order, while also streamlining the ordering process and increasing its convenience.
