Happy #SysAdminDay! For 22 years, the last Friday in July has served as an opportunity to celebrate the tireless efforts of system administrators – those all-too-often unsung heroes of modern business who handle everything from fixing printer jams to ensuring business uptime.

In the chaos of 2020, the lingering effects of which continue today, these skills were put to the test even further. Sysadmins coordinated a global migration to remote work environments and supported entire organizations as they kept businesses productive and secure through it all.
