On June 26th, 2009 Data Center Pulse met a major milestone in our push to influence the industry. We broke the 1,000 member mark! This has been a long time coming. We had almost 2 people a day signing up for DCP since we started on September 13, 2008. We had a press release and Data Center Journal picked it up first. They have always been supportive of our efforts and I'd like to publicly thank them for it.
Now for some pretty impressive stats. If you go to the DCP membership page you will see the massive list of companies that are represented. 1,004 members in 45 countries representing over 600 companies from almost every industry on the planet. What I love about this is the strength of this group. I'm not sure if most people realize what this list of people represent. From my estimations, they represent billions of dollars in annual purchases that drives the IT industry. These are the datacenter customers. The ones that define, purchase and operate the technologies that run these global datacenters. Remember that our members are end users only. We do not allow Sales, Consultants, PR, marketing BizDev into DCP directly, but they can join DCP INDUSTRY. The INDUSTRY group has just broken 830 members.
We believe this is just the beginning. The work with the Chill Off, The Stack, Energy Incentive Program and others is starting the process of influencing the industry. We believe very firmly in what we are doing and look forward to watching it grow. Stay tuned at http://datacenterpulse.org.
