Two new kids on the publishing block hit the digital newsstands this month. A great start to 2012 for us tech media lovers.

Following the launch late last year of Datanami, this month sees the birth of the Datanami e-newsletter, providing a compilation of the latest news and developments taking place within the world of big data in an easy to read weekly format. And of course BIG data needs BIG storage so there are stories a plenty with a storage flavour. Datanami comes to us from Tabor Communications, publishers of HPCWire and HPC in the Cloud.

Nicole Hemsoth, contributing editor for HPCwire and former editor of HPC in the Cloud, is managing editor of Datanami, and brings insights from the world of high performance computing as well as cloud in frastructure to the new challenges created by big data. She blends news and perspectives from across the academic and enterprise spheres on the larger canvas of technologies and trends that are reshaping computing across all sectors.

 This month also sees Sift Media’s new title, Platform Cloud 9 go live. This is part of a wider portfolio of ITDM titles currently being planned by Stuart Lauchlan, Head of Publishing at Sift Media, and Paul Briggs, Publisher of Platform Cloud 9, Business Cloud 9 and PublicTechnology.net.

Platform Cloud 9 will be covering the `how’ of cloud computing, from cloud applications and services development and orchestration through to the systems, the software and management tools, and the underlying architectures which form the platforms that businesses can build services on. These are the services that fulfil their business needs.

So Platform Cloud 9 will be looking at the technologies of cloud computing through a filter marked `meeting the objectives of the business’.

Platform Cloud 9 will start publication in mid-January and the website will be www.platformcloud9.com. Martin Banks AKA Banksie is the Launch Editor.

Exciting stuff in big data and the cloud, both with a good dose of storage news and know-how in the mix. Bring on 2012. And yes, of course we are looking to secure some up close and personal time with Nicole and Martin to find out what makes them and their publications tick! We’ll keep you posted on progress.
