Full access SharePoint 2010 site collection level
Some companies or private persons choose SharePoint 2010 hosting in multi-tenant environment, when the full access to SharePoint 2010 servers and the full sharepoint 2010 control aint required for them. You need to know that with hosted multi-tenant SharePoint 2010 the amount of space comes to 100 GB! Additionally you would be provide with storage for Sandbox Solutions and can to make a bit of customization on your SharePoint site. But please keep in mind that hosted SharePoint 2010 has some limitations and not always is a solution for all your company requirements because you can get only full access SharePoint 2010 site collection level – it`s mean that you will be the SharePoint 2010 site collection owner, but you can`t get access to the Central Administration Web App and can`t get full web application accessibility as well.
Full Web Application accessibility
Most of the companies have considered a dedicated SharePoint 2010 as the best solution for their business, a solution that can meet all their specific business requirements. Dedicated SharePoint 2010 is compliant and there are a lot of advantages and features which are not available with tenant environment. Shortly, you can get full webapps access, full sharepoint 2010 control and central administration access sharepoint 2010, additionally you can use your own server as data storage.
