March 19, 2009 -- We recently launched a new and, yes, much improved Web site. In addition to an enhanced look and feel, infostor.com now includes a number of elements that will make it easier for our visitors to use the site as their primary source for breaking industry news and for researching storage technologies, trends, products, and companies.
For example, the site has a new architecture organized around Topic Centers (e.g., SAN, NAS, storage management software, backup and recovery, disk arrays, etc.) and subtopics to facilitate research by specific technologies. Clicking on a topic category takes you to a landing page that is rich in content on that specific technology. Example: virtualization
We’ve also improved our internal search functionality, which is based on the Google Search Appliance (and we sincerely apologize to those of you who recently experienced problems with our old search engine).
We also added blogs from me (obviously) and senior editor Kevin Komiega.
And we spiffed up our existing site components, including:
--More daily posts in our News and Analysis section
--More Business Briefs covering partnerships and other business deals
--Expanded coverage of new product announcements in the From the Wires section
--Videos from sponsors and industry analysts and consultants
--An archive of all of our Webcasts
--More white papers
--QuickVote reader polls
--In-depth Lab Reviews from openBench Labs and the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)
--And a Financials section that enables you to easily track the financials on specific vendors and the storage industry in general
Check out the new site and let us know what you think. Respond below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
