Storage: Dell is serious this time!

Storage is a bright spot for Dell, which is in the midst of a turnaround after sluggish sales and profit prompted founder Michael Dell to return to the chief executive's post almost a year ago. Storage is a key part of its strategy to boost growth. Dell last month said it would spend $1.4 billion for storage company EqualLogic to beef up its lineup.

"Storage is a fast-growing market segment; there is opportunity there," said Praveen Asthana, worldwide director of marketing for Dell. "It's a good area for us to focus on."

Storage sales rose 8% in Dell's most recent quarter, ended Nov. 2, which was the same as Dell's overall growth. But in the previous quarter storage revenue jumped 12%, to just 4% for the company overall.

Storage sales help Dell's lucrative server sales, says IDC analyst Brad Nisbet. Many corporate customers like to buy servers and storage from the same company.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!
