Mission Statement

What do you use when evaluating products to purchase for your Data Center? Do you rely on vendor speak, analysts, past experiences or a coin flip. If you are looking for a source that will provide a clear unbiassed view on products? Then the Data Center Zombie (DCZ) team is just what you’ve been looking for. Besides there is no one more trustworthy than the undead!

It is our one mission here at DCZ to sort through the FUD, test products and provide a real view of the offering. The zombie team cannot be swayed by any vendors, we will give you a clear and honest view. Sometimes it may be uncomfortable, but you can count on the facts being published. To quote our tag line we are “Putting the Brains back in IT“.

If you are a vendor that would like us to review any of your products, reach out to us via the contact page. We would be happy to review any products that we feel are relevant to the data center space that we focus on. We are also available for to work with vendors on product discussions and roadmap, tap into our deep experience with products in the data center space.
