LR Blitzes Data Center Market

Attention data center junkies: Light Reading, Byte and Switch's parent site, has your fix.

Light Reading has launched a new site, Next-gen Data Center Forum (NDCF), which will provide news, research, and expert advice on all of the data center's moving parts -- the mainframes, middleware, switches, and security.

NDCF will serve as an online meeting place where IT managers can read and discuss the latest news, technologies, and trends affecting corporate data centers.

So why a new site? Well, data centers -- the information hubs of modern corporations -- are growing like mad. They're increasingly big and confounding (and confoundingly big). In fact, even traditional outsourcing companies have found that they can save money by -- wait for it -- outsourcing their own data centers! (See Data Centers on the Rise.)

NDCF will attempt to cut through the complexity by writing about end users and how they use technology to get the most out of their data centers.
