For efficient collaboration within the company

The SharePoint collaboration tool allows companies to work together with their employees on joint projects – regardless of location, time or end device. The software ensures that all participants are always kept up to date with the latest files and information. This enables smoother business processes.

Together with our partner, direkt gruppe, we offer Microsoft SharePoint as a Managed Service in our data centres. This saves you the investment and operating costs of implementing SharePoint in your company. It is not necessary to use your own resources such as staff or hardware to successfully utilise the software. The scope and therefore the cost of this “remote operation” can be adjusted to the needs of your company.

SharePoint installations with PlusServer

SharePoint Online/SaaS

In this model, SharePoint is used as a SaaS (Software as a Service) product from PlusServer via the Microsoft Cloud. SharePoint is always up to date, but the customer is responsible for managing SharePoint.

SharePoint – own installation with Managed Service

The planning, provision, management and adjustment of the SharePoint environment take place in the PlusServer data centre. Installation is carried out on specially provided customer servers.

SharePoint in Azure/IaaS

You extend your local environment to include Microsoft Azure IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and have SharePoint 2016 servers there. We recommend this model for high availability or emergency recovery, and for test/development environments.

SharePoint Hybrid

A combination of the SaaS product SharePoint Online and a dedicated SharePoint installation from the PlusServer data centre. You can integrate SharePoint online services into your SharePoint portfolio and thereby start developing SaaS expertise in your company. This allows SharePoint websites and apps to move to the cloud at your own pace.
