ABOUT SrSM

Cloud-Strategy Magazine (CSM), a network site of Virtual-Strategy Magazine (VSM), your leading source for virtualization news, is an online, reader-contributed, publication devoted to the ever changing and rapidly growing virtualization information technology (IT) marketplace. VSM began in 2003 as a simple blog style website keeping up with the relevant news and information in the emerging virtualization arena. From those humble beginnings VSM has grown to a full fledged publication with regular newsletters, daily content updates, attendance at expo's and tradeshow's, user group summits and more. VSM is followed by both C-Level Executives and IT Administrators.

VSM continues to grow along with changing technology and is excited about where virtualization is predicted to be going over the next decade. In 2011, VSM will have expanded its brand to include not only Virtual-Strategy and Virtual-Thread, but additional niche virtualization topics important to the IT marketplace like Application, Cloud, Security, Storage, VDI, and more. In addition, VSM has compiled the most complete virtualization directory on the web.
