This year’s International Data Center Day celebration takes place on March 23. Find out how you can participate and inspire the next generation of data center professionals from Bob Cassiliano — chairman and CEO of 7×24 Exchange Intl., the organization behind International Data Center Day — and Chris Crosby, founder and CEO of Compass Datacenters.

Join the Festivities

We invite students, parents, teachers, academia, industry, and municipalities to celebrate the data center industry with everyone in the mission critical profession.  Participation can occur in a number of ways:

Data Center Connection

Connect with schools in your local area to help raise awareness of data center careers and support the next generation of the mission critical industry.

Easy as 1, 2, 3…

Power of OneYou don’t have to work at a big engineering firm or a data center to participate in International Data Center Day! Just like larger groups, you can create awareness about how data centers operate and participate in International Data Center Day from wherever you choose.

Become Powerful

Parents and Teachers

When it comes to creativity, elementary and high school students are no strangers to coming up with interesting ideas. From drawings to essays to sculptures made with found objects, we’d love to see what your children create.


The best way to participate is by letting us know what scholarship opportunities exist at your school that will help future students pursue a career in the data center industry.


From participating in our mentoring program to offering tours of data centers to posting one of our badges on your site, industry professionals can share the wide world of data centers with the next generation.

Ways to Participate
