Introducing Data Center Zombie a new project

Posted by on January 29, 2014 in Guides | 2 comments

I have had an idea for a new project or website for a while now. Several months ago I began discussing the idea with a co-worker Mike Mills and we came up with the idea of Data Center Zombie. The site will be focused on reviewing data center technology that we work with on a regular basis.

The idea that we had was founded on the idea of providing a real and unbiased take on how the tech works to inform people. The world did not need another news site or how to install site, there are plenty of good and bad ones of those.

Today we’re launching Data Center Zombie, a new blog that is focused on putting the Brains back in IT. What does that mean? We will be creating reviews that are all encompassing of the products that Enterprises are evaluating for todays data centers.

Our reviews will help people of differing skill levels understand how the technology would be installed, managed and perform in their data center. We will not just be doing an install blog post or a quick performance test. We strive to provide a complete view on how the technology works day 1 and through its life cycle.

To do this we will be working with the products for a period of time. This means real hands on experience with the technology. We cannot create this type of review experience by getting a briefing and some screen shots from a vendor, that just does not allow us to create the value that we are trying to provide.

We hope that people dig what is trying to do and appreciate any support in the process of growing this idea.

  1. This is awesome, Brian. Best of luck! I like how you linked Mike’s name in the post to VMware’s VI 3.5 download site, too. Are you saying he’s old-school?

    • Ha, thats awesome. No idea what is going on with the crazy VI 3.5 links. Mike is a unique dude
