We are excited to announce the released of our new iPhone application to connect the data center industry. This appears to be the first dedicated iPhone App for the data center industry and brings further exposure to iPhone users worldwide of the content you, our members, add to the network.
To find the app simply go to the App store and search for ''data center professionals''. You'll see the app icon below. The app is free.
Current Features and Future Plans
We will continue to develop this app. We want to create a great tool for both our members and industry, so if you have any comments or helpful suggestions please comment on this blog post. The main features of the app so far are:
- Latest Network Activity
- News (via the our network blog posts)
- Videos - via our YouTube Channel (DataCenterIndustry)
- PUE/DCiE Calculator - (as defined by the Green Grid)
- Member List
We are planning to add more functionality including a searchable BizDirectory, maps, photos, podcasts and more.
Although we have limited features in this initial release we think it is already a good start - it certainly is a great way to stay up to date with the latest happenings in the industry as reported by our members via the network.
Great Exposure for Your Network Content
One great aspect to this app is that and it will provide even more exposure for the content you, the members, add to the network.
It's a great way to engage with fellow data center industry professionals worldwide e.g. to expose your press releases, blogs posts, discussions, events, and business opportunities/jobs (via our network classifieds section). Your content will be available to a new audience of Apple IPhone/IPod Touch/IPad users worldwide!
How it looks on the IPhone
We are attached some screen shots to show you how the app looks. I hope your will agree that the content looks pretty good via the great apple user interface.
Over 250 Downloads Already!
We released the app on 7th May but did not tell anyone about it as we ironed out some minor bugs etc. But since the release we've already seen that there have been over 250 downloads of this app - and this is before we've even let anyone know about it!!
The app is free and we'd like to keep it this way. If any company would like to sponsor the new IPhone app please contact us.
Committed to Developing the Network
We hope you enjoy this new initiative by the Data Center Professionals Network. As promised we will committed to develop our network to the mutual benefit of our current and future members, and to the wider global data center industry. We continue to welcome your comments and suggestions.
Please help us by spreading the word about both the network and our new IPhone app to fellow data center professionals worldwide.
