International Data Center Day Highlights Critical Importance of Industry to Our Economy
We are excited to be celebrating International Data Center Day. International Data Center Day is designed to create industry awareness and inspire the next generation of talent.
International Data Center Day provides the industry an opportunity to open its doors and show, in a collaborative effort, what data centers are, why they are so crucial to our connected world and the vast array of career opportunities that are part of the data center industry. By working together during and after International Data Center Day, the industry can connect with future generations and ensure a steady flow of skilled labor, enhance the public image of data centers and safeguard the ongoing prosperity of the industry.
Data Centers are integral to our daily lives by providing safe, reliable data storage for our businesses, video games, telecommunications and social media. Modern data centers run all day, every day, to ensure that people and companies can access their data.
“Data centers are the backbone of our technological infrastructure. Today, we celebrate data centers and their contributions as we work to ensure California remains a global leader in tech and innovation,” said Assemblymember Evan Low (Silicon Valley).
What would happen if we didn’t have data centers? A lot of the technology we take for granted today would not be possible. There would be no more mobile banking, streaming your favorite movie or using your smart thermostat. Data is increasingly at the center of everything we do and data centers are critical to keeping it moving and accessible. We’re proud to count a number of leading data center companies among our members, and the services they provide are serving many of our other member companies across a range of industries. That’s why the Council is a strong supporter of our data center partners and the work they are doing to keep us connected.
