Welcome to the Febuary 2015 Newsletter.

In our Cloud Hosting eNewsletter for February we look ahead to 2015 from a number of perspectives: a host of industry luminaries offer their insights into what will be hot in the cloud world in our 'Forward thinking' feature, and we also take a look at April's Telco Cloud Forum, an event that promises a plethora of information to delegates in the form of real world stories rather than the same old hype and marketing presentations. As Alain Decartes of HP commented after last year's event: "What I like about this show is... the fact that people are speaking candidly about how they can improve their business and what they can learn from each other."

One thing I've noticed since launching this title last year is that the industry as a whole seems unusually willing to interact and support those around them in a way that is quite rare in the traditionally 'dog-eat-dog' world of IT. Perhaps because the sector is so reliant on such a vast and confusing interconnection of technologies and infrastructures, but perhaps also because - as with any emerging tech - there is a genuine feeling of community among the leaders? Whatever the reason for the positivity, let's hope it continues.
