This year, we’re celebrating all week long by hosting an IT Heroes and Homelabs contest.

Showing our appreciation
Without IT, most businesses wouldn’t exist, and without sysadmins, there wouldn’t be IT! This is why we are elated to celebrate Sysadmin Day with you. System Administrator Appreciation Day is an annual, day-long celebration dedicated to those who not only keep our systems up and running, but businesses as well. It’s an opportunity for us to pay tribute to those who work long hours, putting out fires and preventing problems before they happen. This year, Sysadmin Day falls on Friday, July 31, and we’ll be celebrating all week long.
What exactly is a sysadmin?
A system administrator or sysadmin, is responsible for a wide range of tasks including maintaining reliable system operations and upkeep of performance and security. Their efforts are critical for business continuity. As a company that exists to help IT pros monitor and troubleshoot systems, applications, and infrastructure, we at Netdata know first-hand how important this role is.
How we’re celebrating: showing off homelabs and battlestations
Our week-long celebration will feature Netdata employees’ homelabs and battlestations to give you a view into how our global team works. We’d love for you to share a glimpse of your systems running Netdata, your homelab, or your battlestation. Our IT Heroes and Homelabs theme is designed to inspire each other, as more of us start to work from home and begin to depend on remote operations. As a fully remote, tech-first company, naturally, we’re excited to share Netdata staffers’ home workstations. Here’s a sneak peek of a few:
