SharePoint 2013 Beta Is Now Available

CloudShare Provides Instant Access to the SharePoint 2013 Beta

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - Today, CloudShare unveils an isolated SharePoint 2013 beta dev/test environment. With this offering, CloudShare enables professionals to explore the SharePoint 2013 beta version in minutes, develop and test new SharePoint solutions, and prepare for migration into production.

"With more versioning, MDS (Minimal Download Strategy), new SharePoint applications and other great features, the ability to get in a SharePoint 2013 beta sandbox immediately is more important than ever for SharePoint professionals," says Ezi Boteach, VP of Marketing and Products for CloudShare. "The ability to access the latest SharePoint technology on-demand typically requires great effort -- you need hardware, software and IT resources. We make it easy and cost effective to stay on the front-line of technology," Boteach continues.

CloudShare has worked with Innovative-e and StoneShare to enable instant access to SharePoint 2013 beta and Project Server 2013 beta, providing the best dev/test experience in an isolated sandbox.

"We are seeing an increasing demand for immediate testing capabilities. That's why Innovative-e collaborated with CloudShare to offer SharePoint 2013 Beta and Project Server 2013 Beta environments now. The goal is to enable customers to instantly explore the technology in full, at a low cost. Using CloudShare, companies can adequately prepare to deploy SharePoint 2013 into production," says Dux Raymond Sy, Chief Evangelist & Managing Partner at Innovative-e and SharePoint MVP.

At StoneShare we use CloudShare extensively in-house. Its flexible, collaborative feature set provides tremendous value and a perfect platform to evaluate SharePoint 2013," says Nick Kellett, CTO, StoneShare.
