International Data Center Day 2022

Netrality Data Centers Welcomed Students to their Philadelphia Data Center at 401 N. Broad

Netrality had the pleasure of hosting students from Delsea Regional High School, Liguori Academy, and Roman Catholic High School at our data center located at 401 N. Broad in Philadelphia to celebrate International Data Center Day on March 23rd!

International Data Center Day was designed to create awareness of the data center industry by providing young talent the opportunity to go behind closed doors to learn what data centers are, why they are important in our connected world, and the wide variety of careers they have to offer.

Students enjoyed a presentation from Netrality’s very own, Wil Schultz, VP of Technology, Brooke Exley, Director of People Operations, guest speakers included Karl Miller from Kupper Engineering, LLC, and Melissa Raffel from ACE Mentor Program of Greater Philadelphia to raise awareness, educate, and inspire the next generation of talent about the data center industry.

After the presentation, students were provided a tour of Netrality’s facilities followed by a visit to our tenant Nerd Street Gamers, a national network of esports facilities and events dedicated to powering competitive opportunities for gamers. Students enjoyed a tour of the gaming floor along with a gameplay experience.

Michael Marrone, President, and Founder, of Liguori Academy shared, ‘’Partnering with Netrality provides an opportunity for our students to identify a career pathway that will help them utilize their technology and essential skills for success. Netrality is a faithful partner to our school who is helping form the next generation of tech leaders.”

Gerald M. Marshall, Netrality, CEO, said, “We are thrilled to be part of an event to educate and motivate the next generation to enter the world of technology within the data center industry. Thank you to all our participants for making this event a success!”
