Today we are pleased to welcome Yevgeniy Sverdlik as the new Editor in Chief of Data Center Knowledge. Yevgeniy is familiar to many of you from his work covering the industry for DataCenterDynamics, where he has headed the North American news coverage for the past five years. We are thrilled to have him join the Data Center Knowledge team.
Yevgeniy knows the data center industry inside and out, including the companies and personalities that drive innovation in this business. He also understands government from his days as a city hall reporter for the Benicia Herald, and has a journalism degree from San Francisco State.
I’ll be transitioning to a new role as Editor at Large, which will allow me to continue writing on a regular basis, while handing off the day-to-day management of our news operation. When I founded Data Center Knowledge in 2005, it was a one-man operation. DCK has since grown into a thriving business, becoming a part of iNET Interactive in 2012.
My new role will allow me more time to focus on reporting and writing, uncovering some of the stories that go beyond a press release or briefing.
Colleen Miller, our Director of Content, will also be taking on new duties, serving as a consultant to iNET on the fast-moving changes in social media. We’ll soon be introducing a new Director of Content.
We have exciting plans ahead for Data Center Knowledge. The addition of Yevgeniy as our new Editor in Chief reinforces DCK’s role as the leading source for news about the data center industry.
If you’re attending Data Center World, come meet Yevgeniy and I for a “Meet the DCK Team” session Wednesday afternoon from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. at Booth #1100 on the expo hall at the Mirage. Colleen, Industry Analyst Jason Verge and other members of the DCK team will be available throughout the DCW event. Please stop by for a visit.
