Manage organization and users

Xelon HQ allows you to manage your organization and users. We recommend you to create personal and named users and avoid using generic accounts. Xelon HQ allows you to granularly set and restrict various permissions for specific users.

Xelon HQ is a multi-tenancy platform and allows you to create sub-organizations with its own users and infrastructure, to further separate and secure your services.

Get started with setting up infrastructure

Now, that we covered the basics, let's jump into what you really signed up for: to run your cloud applications and workloads smartly, securely, and quickly.

The platform allows you to create Linux, Windows, and Kubernetes environments, where you can host your applications and workloads on. In addition, it offers a bunch of additional services that you may need around workloads, such as Firewalls, Load Balancers, Databases or DNS. All services are configured by the click of a mouse and provisioned within seconds.

We have created four guides for the most common scenarios:
