SQL Server Hardware and Storage Links

Being a DBA is more than just knowing about SQL: it’s about the technology which SQL runs on, which includes servers and storage. I’m naturally interested in hardware, so I enjoy keeping up-to-date. Becoming acquainted and staying current with new technologies will not take up too much time, plus it will make you a better DBA. Below is a few resources that I have used to keep up-to-date with hardware and storage.
