Welcome to the November 2014 Newsletter.

Welcome to the November issue of the Cloud Hosting eNewsletter, one that includes some unmissable feature content: Lynda Stadtmueller of Stratecast Frost & Sullivan offers some guidance through the potential minefield that is 'selecting a cloud services provider', arguing that for too long, businesses have been making impulsive - and ill-informed - decisions when it comes to the cloud. As she says in her piece: "From the earliest days of the cloud, businesses have been lured by the lack of commitment. No term contracts, no volume commitments. Easy in and out. Use as much as you want, whenever you want, at a moment's notice. Pay only for what you use. Like a sixties commune, the cloud is painted as a celebration of freedom."

What this leads to, argues Lynda, is a tendency to 'dabble' rather than apply solid business reasoning to cloud decisions. Is she right? We'd love to hear what our readers think - as ever, feel free to drop me a line at the email address below to share your views
