About Us

Data Center POST aims to provide useful content to the data center community.

Data Center POST was created for the sole purpose of offering timely, relevant information to data center and IT and managers. Today, we’re doing the very same same thing—telling you what makes today’s data center tick, and tomorrow’s data center as well.

Our daily posts are contributed by senior IT and business executives, and other industry experts. Data Center Post works hard to get the most current information to add relevance to the successful data center.

In today’s mission critical facilities, there’s no room for downtime, security breaches, or lack of planning. A well-oiled data center is the foundation of success for any size enterprise. But getting there requires dedication, education, knowledge-sharing, an insatiable appetite for technology, and a commitment to business excellence. Data Center Post aims to bring the data center community together to realize all of the above. We’re a knowledge base, a news portal, and a timeless beacon for the data center industry.

What is a POST?

Posts are the heartbeat of Data Center POST. Simply put, a post is an original chunk of information that IT and data center mangers use to enrich their own knowledge base, and keep up with today’s demanding data center. So if you have a  technology or solution that our readers should know about, we want to know.
A post is not a syndicated press release. We get tons of these in our inbox. However, behind every great press release is a great story or POST! Turn your press releases into original stories that data center and IT managers want to hear. Tell us as best as you can, from a vendor-neutral standpoint, how the solution mentioned in the press release contributes to the overall effectiveness of today’s data center.

A post is not a case study. Same as above. We get tons of those as well. Turn your case study into an original post that our readers can read without hearing a sales pitch.

A post is not a whitepaper. Same as above. Turn your whitepaper into an original post that our readers can read without getting unnecessarily technical. Our readers aren’t beginners, but they’re not here every day to read an encyclopedia either!

Who should post?

We’re looking for experts in the data center industry. Are you a vendor that caters to data center and IT managers, CEOs, CIOs, product managers, engineers, technology researchers, etc? Do you have content that will enrich the data center community? How is your company helping to shape the data center landscape?  What is your company doing that deserves recognition?

Why post?

Posting your content on Data Center POST gives you access to our large and rapidly expanding group of data center/senior IT managers and business executives. Your information will be read by thousands of IT and data center managers daily. But we don’t stop there – we aggressively push your information to our social friends including Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and Delicious, and we’ll submit your content to hundreds of directories – every day.
