NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Tech and UBM DeusM announced the launch of The Transformed Datacenter today, an online community for IT executives and professionals looking to derive greater business value from IT infrastructure in the era of cloud computing, big-data, virtualization, and fail-safe networks.
The Transformed Datacenter will shed new light on these issues and suggest new tools, best-practices, workarounds, and more. The conversations will include everyone from CXOs and IT executives to IT professionals who work in and around the datacenter. And the site's ancillary social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn will add both depth and breadth to those conversations. The Transformed Datacenter's blogs, whitepapers, live chats, and message board discussions will explore enterprise IT's most compelling issues with a focus on what's practical and what's possible.
The Transformed Datacenter will focus on topics like high-speed switching and routing, network management, server virtualization, security, and business continuity/disaster recovery, among other topics essential to streamline datacenter operations.
Longtime IT journalist Michael Steinhart was named editor in chief of the new online community. He has been covering IT and business computing for 14 years, tracking the rising popularity of virtualization, unified fabric, high-performance computing, and cloud infrastructures.
"The Transformed Datacenter will provide a fresh filter through which to examine the multiple, overlapping infrastructure challenges that IT professionals must address," Steinhart said. "Community members, bloggers, and the smartest minds in IT can share best-practices, learn from their peers, and engage in genuine community discussions about where today's datacenter is heading."
The site is published by UBM Tech and UBM DeusM, in partnership with UBM TechWeb. Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, is the exclusive sponsor.
