Is it possible to use MS Planner without access to Office 365?

Occasional Visitor

The company I work for is a defence supplier and as a result, has a very strict firewall policy which would never allow critical data, such as would be held in Planner, to be stored off-site. All the mentions of Planner that I've seen state that it requires Office 365 as a base, but we can't use Office 365. Is it then possible to use Planner in our site? Other cloud-based applications can be installed locally where the server sits inside our firewall, but is that an option with Planner specifically and Office 365 in general?

Hi! Planner as part of Office 365 is a cloud service only which means theres no options to run this off-cloud! That goes for all of Office 365. Except from the office applications which can be installed locally on the clients, it still requires connectivity for licensing etc, fetch/send mail from/to exchange online etc
