NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Datacenter Acceleration, an online community site launched today, focuses on all aspects of supercharging the performance of core IT systems on Wall Street, in corporate America, and across the Web.

Datacenter Acceleration is aimed at a readership of senior IT managers and business executives responsible for choosing hardware and software for high-performance applications, as well as developers, IT architects, and administrators whose job is to build, maintain, and operate those systems. The site is published by UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM. Its exclusive sponsor is LSI Corporation, designer of semiconductors and software to accelerate storage and networking in datacenters, mobile networks, and client computing.

The Datacenter Acceleration site features news, analysis, commentary, case studies, and discussions about all aspects of the performance problem, from specialized DBMS to solid-state disk (SSD) to managing virtualization, storage caching strategies, datacenter networking, and the tuning of application stacks.

"Together, online transaction processing and analytics, including the fast-emerging field of big-data, are the lifeblood of today's enterprise," said Terry Sweeney, Editorial Director for UBM DeusM. "Every IT manager is seeking ways of boosting the performance of these core systems so as to gain a business edge."

John W. Verity, who has been covering enterprise IT as a journalist for more than 30 years, will oversee the Datacenter Acceleration community site as Editor in Chief. He is a former news editor at Datamation, information processing editor at BusinessWeek, and editor of Dow Jones's ComputerLetter.

The new site's roster of bloggers will feature more than a dozen expert engineers, consultants, and technology writers including Philip Wik, Michael Joseph, and Lamont Wood.
