New article How to Prepare a Trading Account for Migration to Virtual Hosting has been published:
MetaTrader client terminal is perfect for automating trading strategies. It has all tools necessary for trading robot developers ‒ powerful C++ based MQL4/MQL5 programming language, convenient MetaEditor development environment and multi-threaded strategy tester that supports distributed computing in MQL5 Cloud Network. In this article, you will find out how to move your client terminal to the virtual environment with all custom elements.
A trader may need a terminal running 24 hours a day in the following three cases:
All these cases require constant connection to a trade server and
uninterrupted power supply. Using a home PC is not always possible and
convenient. Until recently, the most popular solution has been renting
allocated computing capacities as VDS or VPS from specialized companies.
MetaTrader platform offers much more convenient and quick solution ‒ you can rent a virtual server for your trading account right from the client terminal.
Virtual terminal is a special lite version of MetaTrader client
terminal which has only the components critical for the round-the-clock
operation not requiring trader's visual control. This allows the virtual
terminal to consume the minimum PC resources while autotrading feature
remains intact. We have obtained experience in making such terminals
since arranging Automated Trading Championship.
During the competition, dozens of lite versions of MetaTrader
worked simultaneously on a single rented server located on the hosting
company's site. Each MetaTrader lite platform contained a trading robot
of one of the participants with all necessary indicators. The current
MetaTrader virtual terminal has been developed specifically for working
in Virtual Hosting Cloud network offering rental services. Any trader
may rent a ready-made virtual server with already arranged trading
environment in a few mouse clicks right from the client terminal.

I can't answer for MQ. I can answer for myself: if many people are interested in some feature, I implement it in my software.
As for VPS, "lite" version would give more flexibility for end users, this could help widen MT market - I suppose MQ could sell MT infrastructure for more brokers.
