25-07 SysAdmin Day


25/7/2008Ngày Kỷ niệm nhà Quản trị Hệ thống lần thứ 9.

Thứ Sáu cuối cùng của tháng Bảy là ngày để bạn bày tỏ tình cảm với người Quản trị Hệ thống (Sys Admin) của mình. Vâng, bạn không nghe lầm đâu :D. Trang web chính thức của phong trào SysAdmin Day ở đây: http://www.sysadminday.com/

Nếu bạn chưa biết rõ Sys Admin là những người làm công việc gì thì, theo trang web này,

A sysadmin unpacked the server for this website from its box, installed an operating system, patched it for security, made sure the power and air conditioning was working in the server room, monitored it for stability, set up the software, and kept backups in case anything went wrong. All to serve this webpage.

A sysadmin installed the routers, laid the cables, configured the networks, set up the firewalls, and watched and guided the traffic for each hop of the network that runs over copper, fiber optic glass, and even the air itself to bring the Internet to your computer. All to make sure the webpage found its way from the server to your computer.

A sysadmin makes sure your network connection is safe, secure, open, and working. A sysadmin makes sure your computer is working in a healthy way on a healthy network. A sysadmin takes backups to guard against disaster both human and otherwise, holds the gates against security threats and crackers, and keeps the printers going no matter how many copies of the tax code someone from Accounting prints out.

A sysadmin worries about spam, viruses, spyware, but also power outages, fires and floods.

When the email server goes down at 2 AM on a Sunday, your sysadmin is paged, wakes up, and goes to work.

A sysadmin is a professional, who plans, worries, hacks, fixes, pushes, advocates, protects and creates good computer networks, to get you your data, to help you do work — to bring the potential of computing ever closer to reality.


Tại sao ta cần phải bày tỏ tình cảm với những người làm Sys Admin?

Let’s face it, System Administrators get no respect 364 days a year. This is the day that all fellow System Administrators across the globe, will be showered with expensive sports cars and large piles of cash in appreciation of their diligent work. But seriously, we are asking for a nice token gift and some public acknowledgement. It’s the least you could do.

Consider all the daunting tasks and long hours (weekends too.) Let’s be honest, sometimes we don’t know our System Administrators as well as they know us. Remember this is one day to recognize your System Administrator for their workplace contributions and to promote professional excellence. Thank them for all the things they do for you and your business.

Tổ chức OpenDNS còn chưa thấy một ngày là đủ, họ phát động cả một tháng kỷ niệm cùng với lễ hội và thậm chí một giải thưởng 2008 SysAdmin Awards.



Bạn biết Sys Admin của mình tên gì không? Còn chần chừ gì nữa, ngay khi bạn đọc được thông điệp này, hãy bày tỏ tình cảm với Sys Admin thầm lặng của mình đi!


P.S: Xét theo những tiêu chí trên thì mình cũng có đến 90% là 1 Sys Admin mặc dù chưa bao giờ tự nhận :p.
