Provide On-Site servers.
The Dreamhost issue caused several projects to stall. It would be beneficial have servers on-site to house the projects. Virtual machines would do the trick, so that LAMP or Windows Machines could be built.

Our team would have been able to tackle our problem completely different had we had access to a server running SQL, which could then easily be delivered off to our NPO for hosting the project. Every few hours, our team was confirming with our Project Lead about the status of a SQL instance we could port the project to, and eventually the task got relegated off our backlog.
