Giving thanks to your data center manager

What do the peaking colors of fall foliage, the nighttime appearance of the hunter’s moon, and escalating college football and NFL rivalries indicate? That autumn has officially arrived, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

Thanksgiving is primarily associated with family and friends gathering together, enjoying an uncomfortable amount of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, and then lapsing into a tryptophan and sugar-induced state of semi-consciousness. While Americans may also associate Thanksgiving with the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians, the holiday actually spans cultures, continents and millennia. In ancient times, the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all feasted and paid tribute to their deities as an annual celebration of the harvest and its bounty.

But lest we forget, Thanksgiving is also the perfect time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, including data center managers around the world who work tirelessly to ensure business continuity within every enterprise. While typically not perceived as deities, the contributions provided by the data center manager throughout the spring, summer, fall and winter are no less worthy of honoring.

So, for this Thanksgiving, we’re expressing our deepfelt appreciation for the data center manager and enumerating the many ways these unsung heroes maintain peak performance across their facilities in today’s real-time, always-on business environment.
