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 managers 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!

We’re looking for experts in the data center industry who are subscribers to Data Center POST.
