24% of Wikipedia edits over a three month period in 2016 were completed by software hosted in Cloud Services projects. In the same time period, 3.8 billion Action API requests were made from Cloud Services. We are the newly formed Cloud Services team at the Foundation, which maintains a stable and efficient public cloud hosting platform for technical projects relevant to the Wikimedia movement. -- https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/09/11/introducing-wikimedia-cloud-services/
With a lot of help from @MelodyKramer and the Diff-blog team, we have published a blog post on the main Wikimedia blog. The post talks a bit about why we formed the Wikimedia Cloud Services team and what the purpose of the product rebranding we have been working on is. It also gives a shout out to a very small number of the Toolforge tools and Cloud VPS projects that the Wikimedia technical community make. I wish I could have named them all, but there are just too many!
