So, What`s in a Name?
Robert A. Poggi
Many system and network configurations fail because the people who integrate them do not have regular access to sophisticated storage technology.
Many enterprises are operating at less than optimum efficiency because their data is not stored and managed on sound concepts.
Many professional careers are limited because integrators and enterprise information managers are not aware of the innovative ideas and products that are changing the way data is stored, distributed, and managed.
INFOSTOR was conceived in response to our conviction that ongoing information is a professional necessity in a field as dynamic and fast changing as information storage.
There are few textbooks on computer storage. Schools oriented to actual day-to-day conditions under which enterprise storage operates are rare indeed. Most of what we learn about storage, we learn on the job, mostly from information managers and integrators who have spent years learning about it themselves.
The huge success of INFOSTOR proves the need for this highly concentrated monthly publication of information storage issues and state-of-the-art solutions.
Perhaps there are bits of information that INFOSTOR will put into words, and your most perceptive ideas and creative thinking will spring spontaneously. That--and the need for a highly concentrated monthly storage publication--is the reason for INFOSTOR.
Both you and your company will benefit from this transfer of technology from "the storage professionals"--our editors, contributors, and advertisers alike. So, I urge you to join your colleagues. Fill out and return the Free reader subscription card, and you will get INFOSTOR each and every month.
