Project Hosts Introduces Azure Application Management Service to Meet Growing Demand for Enterprises Deploying Private Clouds in Azure

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - August 17, 2015) - Project Hosts, a leading provider of managed cloud services for Microsoft solutions, today announced a new Azure Application Management Service to meet the growing demand that enterprises and U.S. government agencies have for application monitoring, performance optimization, security management and user support in their Microsoft SharePoint, CRM, ERP and PPM-based Azure deployments. Project Hosts will be highlighting this new service along with its Remote SharePoint Administrator Service for on-premise, public, private and hybrid cloud deployments at the upcoming SharePoint Fest in Seattle, WA from Aug 18-20. Also showcased will be Project Hosts' FedRAMP SharePoint Cloud, and Dedicated, Private SharePoint Cloud offerings.

"The adoption of the Microsoft Azure cloud is accelerating because more and more enterprise customers are utilizing Azure for their private cloud needs instead of doing traditional on premise deployments," said Scott Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Project Hosts. "With this growth we're now being asked to apply our Microsoft cloud expertise to a customers' specific Azure deployment. Our new Azure Managed Services offering fills the void that exists between Azure's platform support and the customer's ability to provide application cloud management services and user support to their employees and customers."

Azure is an exceptional cloud platform that enterprises can use to spin-up new Windows Server-based application deployments with minimal effort. Some companies however, lack the cloud expertise and IT staff necessary to ensure that their Azure-based application deployments deliver the most secure, high performance, 24x7 trouble-free operation with full user support services. Project Hosts is directly applying its more than 12 years of Microsoft hosting and cloud services for SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Project Server and dozens of third party add-ons and applications to help solve this problem, and relieve enterprises of what's considered a time-consuming and costly endeavor.

Project Hosts' Azure Managed Services fills the current gap that many enterprises and government agencies have in managing their Azure deployments including Application Security Management, Continuous Monitoring & Performance Optimization, and User Support. Each of which is highlighted below. For more information on these services please refer to the Azure Application Management Services page at www.projecthosts.com/azure-managed-services.aspx

Security Management - Azure takes care of the physical security of their data centers as well as access control and the security surrounding physical devices. But Azure leaves it up to each customer to secure and restrict access to their own virtual servers/subnets. Project Hosts' services include:
• Access Control
• Intrusion Detection/Prevention
• Malware Protection Management
• Application Lockdown Maintenance
• Incident Response Planning and Testing

Continuous Monitoring & Performance Optimization - When a deployment is first architected for Azure, it is optimized and updated for its initial and originally intended usage scenario. As time passes, deployments are typically modified to meet additional needs and as such require additional updates and re-optimization. Project Hosts' services include:
• Continuous Monitoring
• Updating and Patching
• Architecture Optimization
• Database and Application Tuning
• Third Party Application Installation and Maintenance
• Backup and Restore
• Disaster Recovery

User Support - Project Hosts offers a unique Person-2-Person support service with guaranteed response times to ensure customer satisfaction and resolve issues as they arise, including:
• Performance Issues
• Connectivity Issues
• Anomalous Application Behavior
• Bug resolution and Case Management
