Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

It's that time of year again when we are all invited to appreciate that most unlauded of colleagues: the humble sysadmin.

Yes indeed, they may play air guitar to Rush, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and Megadeth, but 30 July is the day when all that is temporarily forgiven to allow a heartfelt celebration of all things sysadminesque.

Full details on how you too can love your sysadmin are available on www.sysadminday.com. Here's how they put it: "A special day, once a year, to acknowledge the worthiness and appreciation of the person occupying the role, especially as it is often this person who really keeps the wheels of your company turning."
