Data Center Industry Careers through Orion Talent

About the Industry

A data center is typically a building, a dedicated space within a building, or a group of buildings used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. Data centers centralize an organization's IT operations and equipment, as well as where it stores, manages, and disseminates its data. They house a network's most critical systems and are vital to the continuity of daily operations. Consequently, the security and reliability of data centers and their information is a top priority for organizations.

Since IT operations are crucial for business continuity, it generally includes redundant or backup components and infrastructure for power supply, data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g. air conditioning, fire suppression) and various security devices.

Although data center designs are unique, they can generally be classified as internet-facing or enterprise (or "internal") data centers. Internet-facing data centers usually support relatively few applications, are typically browser-based, and have many users, typically unknown. In contrast, enterprise data centers service fewer users, but host more applications that vary from off-the-shelf to custom applications.

Data centers have evolved significantly in recent years, adopting technologies such as virtualization to optimize resource utilization and increase IT flexibility. As enterprise IT needs continue to evolve toward on-demand services, many organizations are moving toward cloud-based services and infrastructure.

The Data Center industry presents an exciting and challenging opportunity for the right candidate. Military Officers and Enlisted Technicians possess unmatched training in electronic, mechanical, and electrical systems as well as proven leadership skills, making them an ideal fit for a career in the Data Center industry.

Military veterans are well-versed in adhering to the strict operating procedures and protocols that are critical to the success of Data Centers and Mission Critical Facilities. More than 1,200 veterans have been hired into various roles across Data Centers and Mission Critical Facilities through Orion.
