Ascent is very excited to be one of the supporters of the 2023 International Data Center Day, celebrated this year on March 22. The day, powered by 7x24 Exchange International, is intended “to create awareness of the data center industry and to inspire the next generation of talent,” and provides the industry an opportunity to demonstrate 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.

7×24 Exchange International is a not-for-profit organization that provides an educational forum focusing on challenges faced by mission critical industry professionals. Ascent is a leading provider of solutions for the design, engineering, construction and operation of data centers and other mission critical facilities.
