In the vane of uniting and connecting storage users, I have begun to set up storage forums here
. The goals of these forums are: to connect users, separate the technology from the vendors, help new users get started, and allow experienced users to share tricks of the trade. You canít have the technology without the vendors, so I have set up a vendor category with a forum for each vendor. If you donít see your vendor listed, please drop me a comment or a post in the forum request forum and I will be happy to set it up. I will continue to structure the forums in the coming weeks. I did some research and found almost no forums on storage. The Byte and Switch forums are pretty much unusable. Other storage forums out there are peppered with advertisements from vendors which make it difficult to find the information you are looking for.
Notice to vendors: you will get slimed here. Posts will not be deleted just because you donít like them. These are open forums. I would suggest that you develop an accurate, honest, and detailed response if you find something to take exception to. Post your response and let each individual user make their own decision.
