Welcome to the December 2014 Newsletter.

Welcome to the December issue of the Cloud Hosting eNewsletter, our last in the magazine's first year of publication. The newest title from publishers BTC has seen a very successful 12 months, supported by some of the biggest names in the industry from day one, and we fully intend to go from strength to strength in 2015. The market for cloud services is destined to get bigger and better established (as reflected in news items in this edition, in fact) so there is little question that there is demand for the type of material we can offer.

I'd be interested in using this last newsletter of the year to kick off some feedback from you, our readers - what kind of editorial has been of most value to you so far, and what - if anything - would you like to see changed in future issues? Should we place more emphasis on case studies or on bylined opinions? Do we get the balance right with regard to technology as against management/strategy? We can only continue to thrive as a publication if we are giving the readers what they want: this is your chance to help shape our content for the future. Please send your thoughts to me at the email address below. Many thanks in advance, and happy holidays to you all!
