Friday Funny: Special Delivery
November 9th, 2012 By: Colleen Miller
Oh boy, it’s Friday! That means that it’s time for data center humor! Are you ready for a new cartoon?
Here’s how it works: We provide the cartoon (drawn by Diane Alber, our awesome data center cartoonist) and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion. The winner will receive their caption in a signed print by Diane.
And now, Diane writes, “I’ve heard the term ‘pizza box servers’ a couple of times when people talk about the regular servers in a rack. So I couldn’t help but do a comic about it! ” Please add your caption suggestions for what the Kip is telling Gary.
Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center cartoon humor.
To see our previous cartoons, visit Data Center Knowledge’s Humor Channel.

The microwave is broken but lunch is hot and ready now!

I can’t ping any of the new boxes we installed but at least they’re tasty!

So, what you’re saying is we’ve spent two million dollars in here, and you’re using it for a pizza oven?
Excellent. I’d like a slice of Pepperoni.
WillPosted November 9th, 2012
It took six months to get this change approved all because some idiot installed sausage in the pepperoni chassis.
Caption: The oven racks are running a little cold this morning.

Did you send a request to Human Resources for a new pizza-server?
Jon VPosted November 9th, 2012
Apparently ASHRAE’s latest guidelines recommend that you stack Pepperoni beneath the the other pizza’s in the rack to get the most even heat distribution.
We’re adopting a new PaaS offering; pizza as a server.
It’s easy to hide your lunch in here, as long as it’s 1U and has rack brackets.

We can run these at 400 degrees!

“Powered by Papa John’s – and pepperoni to boot!”
This new pizza store is great, they delivery them on 1U boxes, it keeps our food warm and can be used as backing panels on racks.

It would be warmer if we had hot aisle containment
Mike SPosted November 10th, 2012
It’s N+1 on Pepperoni, but fully 2N on cheese…

Look what I found in the hot aisle
ddayPosted November 11th, 2012
I guess you could call me a pizza box server

It’s our newest Cloud offering: PaaS. Pizza as a Service!
It’s the secret to achieving a PUEpperoni of 1.032

We’ll have to adjust the cooling to this rack a bit. The pizzaboxes are getting cold.
What? You wanted a green datacenter initiative. The heat from the servers cooks the pizza and we are selling it in the cafeteria for $3 a slice!

Caption: “ASHRAE’s updated allowable ranges are working great!”
James GeorgePosted November 16th, 2012
Not only is the pizza done, but it didnt change our PUE rating!

After we finish this pizza we will be compliant with our blanking panel program.
