We’re pleased to announce the launch of ReadWriteWeb’s third subsite: ReadWriteCloud. This channel will cover Cloud Computing and Virtualization, focusing on the strategic business and technical implications. ReadWriteCloud is sponsored by Intel and VMware.

We’ve hired a couple of experienced practitioners of cloud computing as our daily writers for ReadWriteCloud. Mike Kirkwood is a seasoned Enterprise Architect from Berkeley and has been a Sr. Manager supporting large consumer applications. Tim Hastings is a hands-on Technical Architect of web services, based in England. In addition, ReadWriteEnterprise editor Alex Williams will oversee the site and be a contributing writer.

ReadWriteCloud aims to combine knowledgeable editorial and active community involvement around virtualization and cloud computing. We hope it will become the best source available for IT managers who want honest discussion and practical solutions on these topics. Its editorial focus is not on specific products – but on ideas, innovative solutions and new ways of thinking for cloud computing and virtualization.

With our two highly experienced topic experts and the editorial hand of Alex Williams, we’re sure that ReadWriteCloud will help you gain new levels of efficiency and control over your web-based infrastructure. Check out ReadWriteCloud here.
