Scott Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Project Hosts, summarizes the cloud options available for hosted Microsoft Project Server (PPM) solutions, and the advantages of Private and Hybrid cloud-based deployments.
Scott’s article was recently published by one of our premier partners, Pcubed, with whom we’ve had a long and successful relationship hosting Microsoft Project Server Private Clouds for their enterprise clients.
Below are some highlights, for the full article, follow this link to Pcubed’s Insight publication: PPM on the Cloud: Advantages of a Private Cloud
“…there are a number of cloud choices available to enterprise clients seeking a solution tuned to their business. Known as “private clouds,” these solutions deliver the combined advantages of a public cloud and an on-premise deployment. A private cloud can be implemented in various ways, including a hybrid cloud solution, enabling the IT/business decision makers to define the level of internal IT resources and support that will be allocated to the deployment and ongoing management of the solution.”
“A private cloud is a type of cloud in which physical or virtual servers are dedicated to a single enterprise customer… Hybrid clouds are a type of private cloud configuration. Hybrid solutions enable a private cloud to access and integrate data from applications, services, or tools that are in servers at other locations. Partnering with Pcubed, Project Hosts works with clients to integrate the following four key areas of customization: application extensions, business intelligence, on-premise integration, and custom security.”
