(The Hosting News) – A top news resource for all things related to the data center industry recently got a new owner. On Friday, tech media company iNET Interactive announced its purchase of Data Center Knowledge, expanding its hosting related portfolio which already includes brands such as AFCOM and Data Center World.
Financial terms of the acquisition were not revealed in a press release regarding the matter. Aside from providing articles related to the latest news in the data center industry, Datacenterknowledge.com features industry whitepapers from top companies related to topics such as cloud computing, virtualization, infrastructure and more.
News stories on the site are categorized under headers including companies, regions, and jobs. “We’re excited to become part of iNET Interactive,” stated Data Center Knowledge editor-in-chief in a press release. Miller also said that iNET held the same goal of “providing exceptional news and analysis for data center professionals.”
Despite the ownership shift, it doesn’t necessarily signal a change of employees at Data Center Knowledge. iNET Interactive emphasized that employees at the data center news site would remain in their positions. “Not only have we added a great property that perfectly complements our existing data center portfolio, we’ve also added great people,” commented iNET CEO Troy Augustine.
iNET previously made a big acquisition when it bought HostingCon in 2008, a large web hosting industry conference held annually. That move was followed up last year when iNET announced its acquisition of the Web Hosting Industry Review (theWHIR).
HostingCon 2012 is set to bring together exhibitors from top industry innovators including SoftLayer, OnApp, SpamExperts, FireHost and more. For additional information regarding iNET’s purchase of Data Center Knowledge, view a press release here (inetinteractive.com).
