It’s a Wrap: Dell Power Solutions Magazine September 2009 Issue

Wrapping up each quarterly issue of Dell Power Solutions Magazine is akin to a symphony of the publication persuasion, the movements carefully orchestrated to simultaneously deliver clip_image002over 130 pages of content in print, digital, and Web form factors.

But all of the editorial in the September 2009 issue is so much beautiful music now and queued for immediate playback: get it by clicking through to the Web Edition or Digital Edition.

The key content track in this issue is around Storage Efficiency, headlined by an exclusive interview with the visionaries behind Dell’s game-changing enterprise storage portfolio that spans Fibre Channel, iSCSI, network attached storage (NAS) and direct-attach technologies.

Find out what Darren Thomas and Paula Long have to say about the state of enterprise storage and why storage virtualization plays such a pivotal role in data center optimization.

Deeper technical tracks in the storage section include “Allocating Storage with Virtual Provisioning on Dell/EMC CX4 Series Storage Arrays,” “Mixing Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet in a Dedicated SAN Infrastructure,” and “Dell EqualLogic PS4000 Arrays: Cost-Effective iSCSI SANs for SMBs and Remote Offices.”

Also, check out our Efficient Enterprise section in this issue for the latest in virtualization guidance around VMware vSphere 4 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. And for a decidedly lighter reading track, check out our Online Exclusives page for new Enterprise Insights: quick-read, one- or two-page perspectives covering a much broader range of IT topics.

Among the latest postings are a pair of articles around social media, including “Top 5 Ways to Get Started with Social Media in the Enterprise” and “Wisdom of the Masses.”

I encourage you to take a look at these articles and let me know your thoughts on them.
