Find an Article or Resource Website that Would Benefit Others in the HDS Community?

Jive Anywhere combines the endless information of the Internet with the collaborative power of the HDS Community.

When you come across something you'd like to discuss with your peers in the HDS Community, such as an article about the latest on storage virtualization or trends in the most innovative IT organizations, you can now use Jive Anywhere to connect all those conversations. Rather than copying and pasting a URL or copying the content of the article, you can share the link and start a discussion with the click of a button once you have Jive Anywhere installed in your browser.
