Certain projects may have requirements which are better suited for *not* incurring the expense and administrative burden of dedicated server hardware. In such cases, a hosted solution (where a third party provides a specified service or resource for a monthly service fee) may be an excellent solution.
Some broad project areas which may be suitable for this type of deployment might include:
- Public web site hosting
- Web-based collaboration software (Wiki, Blog, Forums / Bulletin Boards, Portals, E-mail List Management, etc.)
- Document Management Solutions
- Web-based project management, CRM, team collaboration solutions.
- Dedicated FTP / HTTP based file hosting / exchange.
We have extensive experience with a variety of open-source solutions which may be deployed using a third-party hosting provider, to ensure you get an effective solution which meets your requirements.
