I'm about to inherit an MPLS network and have a question.  currently all apps reside on the Corporate office network, and all branch offices access the applications over the MPLS network.  A bunch of applications from the corporate office are going to be moved to a third party hosting company.  Is it possible to create a VPN between the MPLS at the corporate office over the internet to the third party hosting company?  We don't want have an MPLS circuit installed at the third party hosting company,

Yes you can do that, you just need to make sure that the MPLS cloud knows about the route to the 3rd party via the HQ location.  Depending on how your MPLS is setup with your provider, it could be that you control the routes and the provider has no need to know about it, or it could be that you have to submit a request for the MPLS provider to advertise the route(s) to the 3rd party via the HQ location to everyone else.  

What this does mean though is that if all of your branches are using these apps which now reside over a VPN connection, then the HQ internet bandwidth usage will increase.  So keep that in mind.
