"Which Type of Microsoft Project 2013 Cloud Is Best Suited to Your Business" Question Is Addressed in Newly Released Paper by Project Hosts

Executive Summary Highlights Public, Partner, and Private Cloud Options for Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) 2013 Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2013) - Project Hosts, the leader in Custom Cloud hosting of Microsoft PPM, CRM and SharePoint solutions, announced the release of an executive summary that highlights the differences between the three types of clouds now available for Microsoft Project Server 2013. With nearly a decade of hosting experience in Microsoft Project Clouds, Scott Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Project Hosts summarizes the advantages of each of the three options: Microsoft's Cloud (hosted by Microsoft), a Private Cloud (hosted by a customer), and a Partner Cloud, such as Project Hosts' PPM Custom Cloud offering. The paper can be directly downloaded from this link by clicking on the "PPM Cloud Choices" icon.

The short summary is written for business decision makers and IT executives. It highlights the core elements which comprise a cloud-based Project and Portfolio Management solution, the fundamental differences between today's cloud options, levels of customization available for each, and current customer preferences. For more detailed information on the capabilities and customization options available with a Partner Cloud, please visit Project Hosts' PPM Custom Cloud page.

With the recent release of Project Server 2013, customers now have the option to choose Microsoft's Project Online offering, a standard multitenant cloud that delivers an on-demand solution for companies that don't need dedicated servers, high levels of customization, white-glove service, or support for custom code.

Customers can also 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.

Project Hosts offers another cloud option for Project Server 2013 that combines the best of standard Public Clouds and Private Clouds for enterprise and government 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 environment. A PPM Custom Cloud from Project Hosts is designed to allow both Microsoft partners and customers to precisely define their solution architecture, while also having the ability to directly access and control critical elements of the hosted solution.
