Dont worry, its free and no obligation!
There are no hidden charges or fees, you will not be obligated to pay a fee or subscribe to a service, or be called or contacted via a sales or account manager person to buy something. Nor will you be required to sign up for a annual or short term retainer, make a donation, honorarium, endowment, contribution, subsidy, renumerate or sponsor in any other manner directly or via indirect means including second, third, fourth or by way of other virtual means or physical means. This also means via other organizations, venues, institutes, associations, communities, events or causes. (Btw, that is some industry humor some will get however to others that feel it is poking fun of their lively hoods, too bad!)
Your contact information will not be sold, bartered, traded, borrowed or abused being kept confidential nor will you be called or bothered (contact me if somebody does reach out to you). However you may get an occasional Server and StorageIO newsletter sent to you via email (privacy and disclosure statement can be found here).
There is however one small caveat and that is no spamming and direct submissions on yours or your companies behalf. If you are a public relations firm feel free to submit on behalf of your own organization, however have your clients submit on their own (or use their identity when doing so on their own behalf).
Why do I make this links page and list available for free to those who read it, as well as to those who are on it?
Simple, I use it myself to keep a list of companies, firms or organizations that are involved with data infrastructures (servers, storage, I/O and networking, hardware, software, services) that I have come across and worth keeping track of that I also feel worth sharing with others.
Of course, if you feel compelled, you can always contact Server and StorageIO to discuss other services or simply buy one of my books including Resilient Storage Networks: Designing Flexible Scalable Data Infrastructures (Elsevier), The Green and Virtual Data Center (CRC) and coming summer 2011 Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking (CRC) at Amazon or one of the other many fine global venues.

Nuff said for now
