The SyncBlaze Cloud Edition comes with two types of rebranding: Simple and Complete Rebranding. The difference between the two is that the complete rebranding provides a customized login page and customized web console URL. In order to achieve complete rebranding, you had to host a server in your environment to host certain static HTML pages in your website and install a webserver (Tomcat) that will enable you to achieve complete white-labelling. Your clients will directly connect to your hosted server and redirected to our cloud server in the background.
We observed that our partners faced certain difficulties with our current design as they faced the below situations:
Website Hosting: We have witnessed our partners hosting their own website or using a third-party web hosting providers.
In the later case, you will not have a physical server and will not be able to provide access to the environment. The content will be stored through a content delivery network like Akamai and the site will be using ajax framework.
Server Access: You had to provide us with the server access in order to host the html pages, install the webserver and other necessary packages. When you site is hosted through a provider, it must be difficult to get the server access.
Port Conflict: When you already have a webserver running in the website, there will be a port conflict since SyncBlaze will need to use the ports 80 and 443.
In that case, the SyncBlaze web console URL will have the port number embedded with which your customers will need to access your branded solution.
New design with <iFrame> tag
With our latest design, you can quickly enable access to your branded cloud without worrying about all the above mentioned cases. Your static branded HTML pages will be hosted in our cloud and we will simply provide a html page that will include the iFrame tag with the necessary redirection details. You can go ahead and quickly host the HTML page in your website running on any webserver avoiding the port conflict and webserver compatibility without providing access to the server.
