Please join us on LinkedIn & Twitter

PTS is excited to provide our peers with a new online forum in which to discuss the planning, design, engineering, and construction of data centers and computer rooms.

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you may already be aware of our Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/PTS-Data-Center-Solutions-Inc/9896556948. (A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who’s added themselves as fans!) Today, I’m happy to announce that PTS is further expanding our online presence with the goal of facilitating the open exchange of ideas among small-to-medium sized data center and computer room operators.

At the forefront of this effort is the newly created Computer Room Design networking group on LinkedIn.com. You can check it out by visiting http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=2099901. Hosted by the consultants and engineers at PTS Data Center Solutions, the group is an open forum in which professionals can share industry-related news, ideas, issues and experiences.

Membership is free and open to all professionals and vendors in the computer room and data center industry. We hope that industry leaders will look at this as an opportunity to share knowledge, discover new services and opportunities, and expand their networks.

So far, our networking group on LinkedIn.com has attracted broad interest, gaining more than 100 members in the first week alone. Featured discussions include best practices for consolidation strategies, how to combat downtime in the data center, and industry concerns regarding the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) metric.

This thought leadership is further supported on PTS’ Twitter profile (http://twitter.com/ptsdatacenter) which features the latest industry news, highlights from the LinkedIn networking group, and insights from our engineers. If you’re on Twitter, please send us a message and we’ll be sure to follow you back!
