2009 is almost over and it is time to look backwards as well as forward to a new year with a lot of interesting challenges and opportunities. For Data Center Map 2009 has been a very good year with a lot of interesting new features, huge growth and a lot of good feedback from the community of clients and providers who use our services. We managed to get the new version of our site launched in May and has since then upgraded it with new features and extra focus on connectivity (fiber, ethernet services and internet exchanges), and so far the feedback we have received has been overwhelming.
All these new features and improvements we are making are a part of our vision of transparency, and in the big picture they are just small steps towards our ultimate goal. Data Center Map is already the leading site of its kind with the most comprehensive database of providers, facilities and networks, but in the long term our vision is to make Data Center Map the ultimate link between clients and providers of data center services. We believe this is possible by making the industry as transparent as possible by collecting and sharing all the information we can in a way that is easy to work with for both parties, and thereby making it easier for clients to get in touch with suitable providers as well as easier for providers to market their solutions.
In 2010 we will be optimizing a lot of our existing services and features to accommodate this (such as our quote service), as well as hopefully adding a lot of new features to make Data Center Map an even more handy tool for our users. Furthermore we will strengthen our external partnerships to drive more traffic and thereby data to the site as well as optimize our services according to the feedback we receive from our partners. As always we are of course more than open to suggestions on what improvements our users would like to see, so feel free to contact us.
That was all for now, instead of taking up more of your time on this lovely day, I would like to wish you a happy new year and thank you for using Data Center Map.
