Hosted or Dedicated SharePoint…
Which is right for you?
SharePoint Comparison – Shared vs. Dedicated
Microsoft SharePoint is a best in class solution. Some might even propose it is in a class all its own. In either case, SharePoint is a robust and sophisticated business collaboration tool. Due to our SharePoint expertise and continuous investment in the development of SharePoint based solutions, Apps4Rent has been able to provide a complete range of SharePoint architectures which most providers are unable to provide.
We are the only company that provides all 3 versions of SharePoint – Foundation (or WSS), SharePoint Server 2010 Standard and Enterprise – in hosted (i.e., shared), as well as dedicated versions. This quickly raises the question, which flavor of SharePoint hosting is the right fit for your organization?
