Heute feiern wir den Tag des Systemadministrators!

Love them or not, we cannot live without them – yes, we are talking about the System Administrators.

The ones who take care of your secure network, make sure that all the computers and devices are up and running, and try to solve any Internet issue ASAP 😉 and are generally responsible for the productive relationship between the employees and the technology in your company. And because the system administrators are so important for any organization, there is a special day to celebrate their work!

Jedes Jahr ist am letzten Freitag im Juli der Tag des Systemadministrators.

Warum feiern wir den Tag des Systemadministrators?

The event (you will also find it written as Sysadmin Day, SysAdminDay, SAD, or SAAD) shows that we value the system administrators’ work, as they always appear when an urgent technical issue arises. And nevertheless, their favorite question is: “ Did you reboot?” we know that they take the company’s tech problems close to the heart and do their best to help solve them as fast as possible. 

Wenn Sie sich immer noch fragen, was genau der Systemadministrator in Ihrem Unternehmen macht, dann schauen Sie sich doch die Definition von Wikipedia an:

“A system administrator is responsible for the upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of computer systems, especially multi-user computers, such as servers. The sysadmin seeks to ensure that the uptime, performance, resources, and security of the computers they manage meet the users’ needs without exceeding a set budget when doing so.”

We can add that the sysadmin often has to work the whole night or during the weekends to ensure that the company’s systems will function properly the next day and you can continue with your daily tasks undisturbed. Sounds pretty serious?

Vermutlich aus diesem Grund hat ein Systemadministrator namens Ted Kekatos am 28. Juli 2000 den Tag des Systemadministrators ins Leben gerufen. Und die Welt hat diesen Tag übernommen!

Wie feiert man den Tag des Systemadministrators?

Some geek and Internet culture businesses like ThinkGeek or O’Reilly Media honor this day with special product offers, giveaways, or contests, which purpose is to increase the awareness of the system administrator profession among the Internet community.

Es gibt eine Webseite allein für diesen speziellen Tag – sysadminday.com. From there, you can get inspiration on showing appreciation to your System administrator’s colleagues. As you probably guessed, “very appropriate” presents are at the top of the list – Cake, Ice Cream, and Pizza :). So try to learn your system administrators’ preferred tastes and surprise them with their favorite pizza and ice cream dessert. You can also choose a more unorthodox way to show your recognition and to commemorate the day, including:

• funny custom t-shirts celebrating your SysAdmin personality
• schicken Sie ihnen ein Lied, das ihre harte Arbeit würdigt
• write them a heart-melting card, along with balloons and confetti, to sparkle their office space


No matter how you choose to celebrate this special day, there is one thing you can do without having to wait for a special occasion. Thank you to your colleagues and system administrators, for the great work they do, for the great support they provide, and for the great help they offer during times of technical crisis.

Zeigen Sie ihnen, dass sie ihre harte Arbeit und Hingabe wirklich zu schätzen wissen, indem Sie sie wissen lassen, wie herausragend ihre Arbeit ist. Wenn das System und die Technik in Ihrem Unternehmen reibungslos funktionieren, dann sagen Sie es Ihrem Systemadministrator, denn sie erfahren es garantiert, wenn etwas nicht funktioniert. 

Wir wünschen einen fröhlichen Tag des Systemadministrators! Und vergessen Sie nicht die Pizza! 🙂
