iNET Adds Top Data Center News Site to Portfolio

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – One of the top sites providing the latest news on the data center industry was recently acquired by media technology company iNET Interactive. Announced on Friday, Data Center Knowledge joins an iNET porfolio that already includes hosting-related brands such as theWHIR and HostingCon.

As a website, Data Center Knowledge provides the industry with news pertaining to data centers organized into categories including regions and companies. The site also features industry white papers from companies such as Intel, IBM and Internap.

“We’re excited to become part of iNET Interactive,” commented Data Center Knowledge founder Rich Miller in a press release regarding the matter. Miller also said iNET shared his company’s “vision for providing exceptional news and analysis for data center professionals.”

Despite the move, it doesn’t signal any employment changes at the data center news site.

iNET made headlines when it acquired HostingCon back in 2008. Focused on web hosting related services and technologies, the conference brings industry experts together for networking. This year’s HostingCon will be held in Boston from July 16th through the 18th. For more information regarding iNET’s acquisition of Data Center Knowledge, view a press release here (
