Today we're launching a new group blog dedicated to servers--those essential but maybe unglamourous workhorses of the enterprise. It's called Uptime and you can find it here. (We reluctantly rejected 'Farmers Weekly' as someone had already nabbed that title...)
We're sure that many of you are dealing with server management as a part of your job, that you are thinking hard about which trends you need to keep on top of, and that you'd like to know what others are thinking. The Uptime blog is a place to share those thoughts and decisions, whether you're running two machines or two thousand.
We got a snapshot of what's going on in server rooms in a couple of recent ZDNet UK surveys — take a look and see what you make of the results. Make a blog post, and tick the checkbox for the Uptime server management blog. The post will appear in the group blog as well as in your personal blog.
To get the ball rolling, we'll give an iPod to the member who makes the most useful contribution in the first few weeks. That's not bad, is it?
