M-Theory provides a fully managed private single-tenant hosted solution.
Recently, a new theory has been proposed in 14-dimensional space-time that responds to many questions, removes the anomalies in 11-dimensional M-theory, and considers the evolution of universe from nothing to present stage.

This paper offers an inquiry into the line of arguments presented by Hawking and Mlodinow in their book The Grand Design and supported with the claim that the yet unknown version of the superstring theory, the M-theory, is an ultimate theory of the Universe.
M-Theory is attempting to make man magic on the basis of not understanding nature.
The M-Theory is concerned with how matter is constructed and the basic substance of the universe.
From invisible pocket universes to M-theory, this guide blends science reporting with history; personal anecdotes, and thought experiments and provides a fun guide to the latest theories and discussions about the nature of the universe.

Citing a version of contemporary string theory, known as "M-theory," they tell us that the "creation" of a great many universes out of nothing "does not require the intervention of some supernatural being or god." Rather, these multiple universes "arise naturally from physical law." (15) Fundamental questions about the nature of existence that have intrigued philosophers for millennia are, so they claim, now the province of science, and "philosophy is dead." (16) Theology, if mentioned at all, is simply dismissed as irrelevant.
We also mention: the algebraic multispaces (multigroups, multi-rings, multi-vector spaces, multi-operation systems and multi-manifolds, also multi-voltage graphs, multiembedding of a graph in an n-manifold, etc.) or structures included in other structures, geometric multispaces (combinations of Euclidean and Non-Euclidean geometries into one space as in S-geometries), theoretical physics, including the Relativity Theory [4], the M-theory and the cosmology, then multi-space models for p-branes and cosmology, etc.
For example, if the lightest superparticle turned out to be the wino, the superpartner of the weak force-carrying W boson, that would be consistent with a version of string theory known by the pithy moniker "M-theory compactified on 7-D manifold of [G.sub.2] holonomy."
To warm up for Hawking's expansive thinking, we might begin with his assertion that our universe is merely one of a set or assemblage of universes, which he calls the Multi-verse, or M-Theory.
This is all based on M-theory, which, in turn, owes much to quantum theory in that no particle has a single history but rather has every possible history.
Examining the still-evolving concept of "M-theory" (or the "theory of everything"), the authors postulate how the universe (and possibly billions of others) emerged from nothing, each with its own laws of nature.
Prof Hawking also backs the controversial M-theory - which says there are multiple universes - as the ultimate theory of everything.
