Cloud technology is one of the most dynamic, rapidly growing and important areas of the tech industry, and GeekWire has a front-row seat for the revolution. Our hometown of Seattle puts us in a unique position to cover global players such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, a growing number of influential cloud technology startups, and the engineering and business leaders pioneering a new era of computing.

We’re proud to announce that we’re expanding our independent editorial coverage of this key sector with the launch of a new Cloud Tech channel, made possible through the underwriting support of Salesforce.

Led by veteran technology journalist Dan Richman, our longtime colleague, this new channel breaks news and explores the key issues in cloud technology, enterprise software and developer tools. Our goal is to provide daily, must-read news and analysis, not only for people shaping the cloud industry, but also for others seeking to understand the major cloud trends reshaping their own lives and businesses.

As an introduction, be sure to check out Dan’s comprehensive story this morning on the rise of cloud computing in the Seattle region, and the implications for the future of technology. Follow Dan on Twitter @danielarichman and send him story ideas and news tips at drichman@geekwire.com. Subscribe to our weekly Cloud Tech newsletter here.

As part of this expanded cloud technology coverage, we will also be launching a new GeekWire Cloud Tech Summit in 2017, bringing together key players from the industry for a conversation about the future of cloud technology. Stay tuned for more information on this event and details on how to attend.

This is the first in a series of editorial channels that we plan to launch on GeekWire with help from underwriting sponsors interested in supporting news coverage in the most important and interesting areas of technology.

GeekWire is now 5 years old, with a solid footing, an expanding team, a growing audience around the world, and exciting challenges still ahead. In many ways, we still feel like we’re just getting started.

A big thanks to all of you who read GeekWire, attend our events, belong to our membership program, subscribe to our newsletters, and support our independent journalism through sponsorships. See you at the GeekWire Summit in October, and in the meantime, check out our Cloud Tech channel here.
