Also announced recently was the availability of The PPM Pricing Configurator by Project Hosts for Microsoft Project Server 2013 cloud-based solutions. The PPM Pricing Configurator helps enterprises, government agencies and partners determine the optimal price point for a custom-configured Microsoft Project & Portfolio Management (PPM) 2013 / 2010 Cloud solution. The PPM Pricing Configurator is easy to use, includes built-in help, calculates a pricing summary and automatically renders a sample Visio architectural diagram of the solution. Also included is a spreadsheet tool that enables users to compare Project Hosts PPM Custom Cloud prices to the cost of hosting Project Server 2013 in their own private cloud. The PPM cloud pricing configurator can be accessed directly at by selecting "Project Server 2013" at top right.

PPM Tours and the PPM Pricing Configurator support Project Server 2013 and Project Server 2010 hosted implementations based on Project Hosts' PPM Custom Cloud implementations. A PPM Custom Cloud combines the best of a standard multitenant Public Cloud and customer-created dedicated Private Cloud. A Project Hosts' PPM Custom Cloud delivers all the business and technology advantages of a Private Cloud, but without all the costs and complexities of a similarly configured solution by a customer, whether on-premise on in a customer's data center.
