SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- Project Hosts, a recognized leader in private cloud hosting of Microsoft Project Server, Dynamics CRM and SharePoint solutions, today announced it has attained a Gold Hosting competency, demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment and distinguishing itself within the top 1 percent of Microsoft's partner ecosystem. In addition to this Gold Hosting competency, Project Hosts has a Gold Project and Portfolio Management competency.
To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.
Project Hosts delivers Custom (Private) Cloud hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions that, unlike Public clouds, provide dedicated infrastructure with the customized security, applications and real-time reporting requirements that enterprise customers and U.S. Government agencies require. With more hosting experience than other companies delivering Microsoft-based PPM, CRM and SharePoint cloud solutions, and now in its 11th year, Project Hosts has launched several strategic initiatives to meet the demand for a new generation of cloud-based solutions. These include:
- Custom (Private) Clouds - PPM Custom Clouds, CRM Custom Clouds and SharePoint Custom Clouds that are built on dedicated infrastructure onto which partner-based solutions, custom code and advanced applications can be added. Project Hosts' Custom Cloud environments deliver a dedicated environment, real-time business intelligence and reporting, specialized security and advanced applications integration.
- FedRAMP Clouds - FedRAMP-authorized private clouds for Microsoft Project Server, Dynamics CRM and SharePoint solutions. Project Hosts is fully compliant with FedRAMP and is just awaiting its official authorization: http://cloud.cio.gov/fedramp/in-process
- Hybrid Clouds - Solutions that offer a high degree of integration between on-site or cloud-based resources. One example of this is the company's SSRS Report Enabler for Project Online that enables Office 365 customers to create business intelligence reports using Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). This service integrates Microsoft's public, multi-tenant Project Online cloud with Project Hosts' SSRS Custom Cloud services.
"By achieving a gold competency, partners have demonstrated the highest, most consistent capability and commitment to the latest Microsoft technology," said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "These partners have a deep expertise that puts them in the top 1 percent of our partner ecosystem, and their proficiency will help customers drive innovative solutions on the latest Microsoft technology."
"The Gold Hosting competency is yet another example of our leadership position within Microsoft's cloud ecosystem and our commitment to delivering best-in-class hosting services for Microsoft solutions," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts. "In addition to Microsoft competencies, our private cloud solutions are also certified by other industry agencies such as the ISO, SSAE and soon by the U.S. Government FedRAMP authority."
Attaining the Hosting competency is exclusively for partners that specialize in hosting solutions and maintain their own datacenters or act as a reseller or agency of services hosted by Microsoft, providing agreed-upon service levels and customized hosted offerings and consulting for common customer scenarios. Equipped with exclusive training, the latest software and support, partners help customers offset the cost of maintaining critical business applications with scalable hosting solutions.
The Microsoft Partner Network helps partners strengthen their capabilities to showcase leadership in the marketplace on the latest technology, to better serve customers and, with 640,000 Microsoft partners in their ecosystem, to easily connect with one of the most active, diverse networks in the world.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
