Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for! The last Friday in July. Not just any Friday but System Administrator Appreciation Day. Today is the day we all get a chance to shine the spotlight on those who work tirelessly to keep our networks up, our data safe and available and our desktops and laptops connected to the resources we all need to do our jobs on a day-to-day basis. Oh, and we all know that’s probably just a fraction of what they do.
To do our part, we felt that a simple “Thank You,” while more than appropriate, was not enough. We put out the call to nominate your favorite SysAdmin. We were humbled by the response and we are more than excited to announce three of the many worthy nominees for today’s special recognition.
Congrats Philip, William and Tomaz! Here’s a quick look at the kind words sent in by those nominating each:
- For Philip, “He thinks outside the box. He is always polite, respectful and has the right answers for our users. No task is too big or too small for Philip. He is a true team player.”
- For William, “Intelligence, proactivity, service.”
- For Tomaz, “He is fast and reliable, and always ready to help when you need him.”
And while a note of thanks and HYCU gift is on the way to Philip, William and Tomaz, we encourage you all to take a moment and recognize the SysAdmins in your life. As has been suggested by many, proper observation of SysAdmin Day includes (but is not limited to):
- Cake & Ice cream
- Words of gratitude
- Custom t-shirts celebrating the epic greatness of your SysAdmin
Also, make sure to check out what our friends at Nutanix are offering in recognition of #SysAdminDay! To show their appreciation for all the behind-the-scenes work that we know SysAdmins do, they are offering NCP and NCAP exams FREE until midnight when you use the code SYSADMINSROCK. You can take the exam at the following link: https://bit.ly/3fgJ6YG.
Enjoy the day! And, thank you to all the System Administrators out there! Today is your day, and who’s to argue that today is, “the single greatest 24 hours on the planet.”
