Our Tech Hero Backpack

We asked our data center managers, developers and network engineers what they couldn’t live without in their backpack.

It was only appropriate that we called it the Tech Hero Backpack! Would you like to win one? Tell us your Tech Hero story and we'll send you one!

Whether it’s the morning after an all night web launch, server emergency or one of Carpathia’s customer networking events, this stuff comes in pretty handy.

We’re Tech Heroes and we want the world to know it! We slap these puppies on everything from our computers to our sweet rides.

We work hard. We deserve to buy nice things and have them shipped to our door.

Tech Hero Rule #1: Don’t forget your tools. When staring down a mountain of servers there’s no time for a panicky “did I bring a screwdriver?!” The answer is always YES. Yes you did.

Data centers may love a cool breeze, but we like to be warm and comfy while saving the world [from its technical emergencies].

Mortals drink coffee. Tech Heroes go for the hard stuff.

Not much smells better to a Tech Hero than the smell of a properly running hard drive [or data center], except maybe the smell of a fresh notebook. Mmmm, moleskin.

If our backpacks are our capes, and our super powers are our IT skills, our kryptonite is a dead laptop. Good thing we don’t need power outlets! The Zoom square charges our most important devices right from our backpack!
