Description 15 Data Center Technologies Blogs Worth Reading (Screencast). Wondering which blogs on data center technologies are worth reading? Learn about 15 worthy contenders and how each can improve its blogging results. Copyright (C) SP Home Run Inc. All worldwide rights reserved.

Due to the rapid pace of change, it can be quite challenging to keep up with rapidly evolving data center technologies. Between architecture, cloud, colocation, compliance, connectivity, construction, cooling, design, engineering, facilities, hosting, managed services, operations, power, security, software, servers, storage, telecommunications, and virtualization – that’s a lot on your plate.

In this post, I set out to identify 15 remarkable blogs worth reading that address data center technologies. For this purpose of narrowing the scope, I focused primarily on companies that actively provide data center products and services – rather than trade publications, conferences, or associations that aggregate consensus.

In addition to looking at each company’s business model and topics covered on its blog, I also offer some basic suggestions on how each blog can improve the results and ROI that it gets from its time and resources invested in blogging.

So which 15 blogs are worth reading?

Data Center Blog | New York & Jersey Infrastructure | NYIData Center Blog | New York & Jersey Infrastructure | NYI – As a provider of mission-critical services around business continuity, colocation, cloud, disaster recovery, and managed services, NYI blogs about compliance (HIPAA, PCI, and SSAE), data center trends, and the hybrid cloud. While all of its information is very helpful – unlike many colo providers who primarily use their blogs to publish glorified news releases – NYI could capture a lot more revenue generating value from its great blog posts by creating highly-targeted calls to action, landing pages, and full funnel conversion paths.
Enterprise Data Storage, Virtualization Management Solutions | TegileEnterprise Data Storage, Virtualization Management Solutions | Tegile – Published by Tegile, a leader in enterprise data storage and virtualization management, its blog has been live since 2012 and covers mostly company news items, plus tips on enterprise storage and virtualization. Most recently, this included nominations for storage hardware product of the year, new product and feature announcements, employee spotlights, tips on enterprise storage proof of concept projects, VDI tips, and best practices on data replication and data recovery. While the format and graphics make for an easy read, Tegile’s sales team could get a lot more value from the blog if it had contextually relevant calls to action following blog posts.
IDS BlogIDS Blog – A thought leadership extension of data center integrator and cloud services provider IDS, the IDS blog publishes a variety of tips and best practices on topics including disaster recovery, barriers to cloud services adoption, Clustered Data ONTAP (cDOT), Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), and Hyperscale Cloud. Like most of the remarkable blogs on data center technologies featured here, IDS is likely missing a lot of lead generation potential as its blog posts don’t have relevant calls to action at the end of each post.
IMPEX Technologies BlogIMPEX Technologies Blog – As an enterprise IT solution provider for data centers, the IMPEX Technologies blog has addressed a variety of areas including application centric infrastructure (ACI), cloud security, converged solutions, flash storage, Internet of Things (IoT), next generation data centers, and software defined data centers (SDDCs) – to name a few. While all of the advice aims to help, IMPEX Technologies could make its blog more inviting with improved formatting and graphics – and capture more leads from its blog by creating contextually relevant calls to action and related landing pages to conclude each blog post. While IMPEX Technologies does have some document downloads promoted in its website sidebar, these are data sheets that would only appeal to the very small percentage of website visitors that are ready for a sales conversation on their first website visit. Internetworking perspectives by Ivan Internetworking perspectives by Ivan Pepelnjak – One of the few independent, non-corporate blogs to make this roundup, the blog for Internetworking perspectives is written by Ivan Pepelnjak – an expert on system architectures and internetworking technologies, a highly-prolific author of Cisco Press books, and one of the first few hundred Cisco CCIEs on the planet (#1354). Pepelnjak very regularly blogs about BGP, data centers, IPv6, IP routing, OpenFlow, overlay networks, SDN, security, switching, and virtualization.
