Network Computing: Connecting The Infrastructure Community The rise of virtualization, cloud computing, and mobility is causing immense changes inside and outside the data center. Different specialties and hardware systems are now converging onto one enterprise infrastructure system. At the same time, IT leaders have more options than ever for how to build infrastructure, how to deliver applications and services, and how to allocate budgets. In order to choose and implement the most efficient strategies and technology investments, IT leaders must be constantly learning, understand how to ask the right questions, and be able to explain infrastructure complexities in a manner that makes sense to their business environments. What's our role? IT professionals count on Network Computing and its affiliated conference, Interop, to show them the how and why behind next-generation networks, data centers, storage systems, communications, and cloud architectures. Interop is the live event for the IT community, while Network Computing provides IT practitioners with an online multimedia experience. Network Computing provides community members with in-depth analysis on new and emerging infrastructure technologies, real-world advice on implementation and operations, and practical strategies for improving their skills and advancing their careers. Our community is a trusted resource for IT architects and engineers who must understand business requirements as well as build and manage the infrastructures to meet those needs. How do we accomplish this? The Network Computing community brings together experienced editors, expert consultants and speakers, and IT professionals - providing a forum for them to solve problems, exchange ideas, and build relationships. We strive to analyze IT from the IT professional's point of view. Many of our authors are Interop speakers and track chairs and the most trusted voices in networking, mobility, data centers, storage, cloud, and UC. Through our interactive platform, community members are able to learn from these industry leaders and contribute their own ideas to ongoing discussions all year long.
