Offline Routing -- beta -- can't deploy

I'm making an app that uses the AGSRouteTask for offline routing. Everything was going great...until I realized that this offline routing is in beta, and therefore it isn't legal to deploy.

I'm planning on publishing this app within a month.

Does anyone know when offline routing will come out of beta?

Although it wouldn't be quite as elegant, I could publish the network dataset on a server and consume that service on the device (going with normal, online routing). However, I don't have a ArcGIS for Server license, and ArcGIS Online can't publish/host complex services like network datasets. Is there any other way to host the network service so I could consume it on the device?

As a last-ditch effort, Is there any well-established way to publish and host a network service on a normal server?

Any ideas on what to do?
