Project Hosts announced today that it is supporting the new release of Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management, Microsoft Project Server 2013, with its Custom Cloud solutions. With this release, customers and partners now have three distinct cloud options for hosted Project Server 2013 solutions: hosting their own on-premise “private cloud,” a Project Hosts’ PPM Custom Cloud, or Microsoft’s Project Online “standard multitenant cloud.”
Customers can choose to host their own “private cloud” instance of Project Server 2013, either on-premise or in their own data center facility. A Project Server 2013 private cloud offers the maximum degree of customization and configuration to support an organization’s specific security requirements, dedicated solutions architecture, third party applications, custom code, and specialized reporting.
Customers can also choose the just-released Microsoft Project Online offering which is a “standard multitenant cloud.” Project Online delivers an on-demand solution for companies who don’t need dedicated servers, high levels of customization, white-glove service, or support for custom code.
Project Hosts offers a cloud option for Project Server 2013 that combines the benefits of both a standard cloud and private cloud for enterprise customers. Project Hosts’ “PPM Custom Cloud” delivers the business and technology advantages of a private cloud, but without all the costs and complexities of a similarly configured on-premise environment. A PPM Custom Cloud from Project Hosts is designed to allow both Microsoft partners and enterprise customers to precisely define their solution architecture, while also having the ability to directly access and control critical elements of the hosted solution.
