RFI Responses: The New Data Center Network
Today's networks are under increasing pressure to support faster speeds and more virtual machines, and to carry both data and storage traffic. A network upgrade is an ideal time to evaluate the vendor you have in place. It's an opportunity to see whether your vendor's products are a fit with your business requirements or whether another vendor makes more sense.

RockMelt Social Web Browser Revealed
RockMelt, a new browser backed by Mosaic and Netscape web pioneer Marc Andreessen, tightly integrates web browsing with social networking, letting users easily track their Facebook friends, Twitter feeds and changing news feeds, while surfing the web. RockMelt is not the first attempt to reimagine the web browser as a social tool. Back in 2005, the Flock browser was released with similar ambitions. Initially based on Mozilla's Gecko rendering engine, the forthcoming 3.0 version of Flock will, like RockMelt, be based on Google's Chromium browser engine. Despite being just an early preview release, RockMelt offers some of the best social networking features we've seen in a browser and could already be considered one of the best browser choices for heavy Facebook users. And with its Chrome heritage, it is already strong as a standard web browser. Here's a look at some of the key features of the recently released early preview of RockMelt.   View Now
