System administrators celebrate professional holiday

 

UFA, 31 July 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Arina Rakhimkulova/. Today is the System Administrator Day. The tradition to celebrate it appeared in 1999 on the initiative of the system administrator from Chicago Ted Kekatos. Since then, every year on the last Friday in July it is decided to honour workers responsible for the corporate networks operation around the world.

In all spheres of human activity progress is inconceivable without computers and communications. One or two system administrators work for small companies and whole departments for major corporations. They are responsible for the performance of the entire computer system, including the Internet, local and telephone networks. They determine the serviceability of each computer, software updates, and protection against viruses.
