Senate of Pennsylvania

To: All Senate members
Subject: Recognizing October 29, 2019 as International Data Center Day
In the very near future, I plan on introducing a resolution recognizing October 29, 2019 as International Data Center Day in Pennsylvania.

As society advances and develops new and exciting technologies, the importance of the internet and data storage continue to grow. With over 50 billion smart devices in use today, more than 8 million data centers around the world are in operation 24/7 to support them and other data using products.

I have seen firsthand the impact the data center industry can have on a community. Iron Mountain, a data center located in Boyers, has provided high-quality family sustaining jobs to many in my district. This data center, and others like it, will be a staple of tomorrow’s economy.

International Data Center Day is designed to create awareness of the data center industry and to inspire the next generation of talent and provides the industry an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a collaborative effort, what data centers are, why they are so important to our connected world, and the wide array of career opportunities that are part of the data center industry.

Please join me in sponsoring this important resolution. If you have any questions regarding this resolution, please contact Nathan Akers in my office at 787-9684 or nakers@pasen.gov.
