Winter 2010 Edition
Welcome to the winter 2010 edition of the Server and StorageIO (StorageIO) news letter. This inaugural edition of the StorageIO news letter coincides with our 5th year in business along with recent web site and blog enhancements.

In an age of social media including facebook, twitter, blogs and video, some might ask the question of why a news letter, after all, is that not old school or non social media? For those who are immersed into twitter, blogs, facebook, RSS feeds and other Web 2.0 means of communication, a traditional newsletter might not be in vogue.

However, realizing that there is still a large percentage of the population which also means a vast number of visitors and guest of StorageIO web sites and blogs or viewers of articles along with other content that do not use twitter, facebook, LinkedIn or RSS feeds, I realize that there is still a role for a newsletter.

Thus, it makes sense to bring info to those of you who prefer a traditional news letter format via email or other subscription, however this newsletter is available in HTML or PDF formats. You can access this news letter via various social media venues in addition to StorageIO web sites and subscriptions.

Enjoy this inaugural edition of the StorageIO newsletter, let me know your comments and feedback.

Also, a very big thank you to everyone who has helped make StorageIO a success!.

Cheers gs
Greg Schulz
