International Data Center Day: Planning for the Future

7×24 Exchange and the International Data Center Day team hope that you and your families remain safe and healthy given the global efforts to contain the COVID-19 virus. With the closure of many schools, we recognize that most of the planned activities for this year will be postponed and encourage you to continue events once the restrictions are lifted.  After all, International Data Center Day is not just a day, it’s designed to create awareness year round. Additionally, we have prepared a number of educational resources that may be useful given the shift towards online learning.  They can be used as instructional materials for classes, fun “at home” projects, and social media projects. Be sure to post your celebration messages on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc., and be sure to tag us using #intldatacenterday. If you need artwork or memes, feel free to visit our Co-Marketing Center.
