Today, March 24, marks International Data Center Day, powered by 7×24 Exchange International! International Data Center Day is designed to create awareness of the data center industry and inspire the next generation of talent. As the preeminent PR, digital marketing and event planning agency for the data center industry, JSA is proud to work with providers that believe in this mission and shape the future landscape of the industry. We’ve highlighted below how some of the top data center companies plan to celebrate #InternationalDataCenterDay.
“The edge is a very exciting place for a data center, but most don’t get a front-row seat to that reality every day. To us, International Data Center Day is about celebrating the innovations happening here and spreading the word about the abundance of use cases currently in development in order to inspire tomorrow’s problem solvers. Data centers, in conjunction with cloud and carrier interconnection, are at the core of revolutionary capabilities that transcend individual business verticals, communities and users. Whether it’s IoT, Augmented Reality, Cloud Gaming, 5G or beyond, 1623 Farnam couldn’t be more excited to help amplify the progress this industry is making or the innovations still yet to come.”
“In the face of the many disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and individuals alike are becoming increasingly aware of how data centers are crucial to daily life, providing connectivity to data and information worldwide. From a simple internet search to streaming a video to storing data for a large enterprise, it’s essential that these facilities operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. In fact, a recent IDC study predicted that the collective sum of the world’s data will grow from 33 zettabytes this year to a 175ZB by 2025, making data centers an even more vital commodity. 365 Data Centers understands the importance of data centers as it is the company’s lifeblood and factor of success. Therefore, in conjunction with International Data Center Day, 365 is preparing to unveil its sleek and bold revamped website. With refined visuals and improved navigation, the website will better showcase the company’s comprehensive suite of solutions that support the backbone of its data center operations. These services include secure and reliable edge colocation, nationwide network connectivity, cloud compute and storage, and DRaaS. It will also highlight 365’s commitment to customer service with a streamlined client portal and robust resource library to address any client challenges and educate them moving forward. Keep an eye on 365datacenters.com for the official unveiling!”
