Friday Funny: Bubbling Servers

It’s Friday! Although it’s a holiday week in the United States, there’s always a good time for humor. Here’s a new cartoon from our fav data center artist Diane Alber.

She writes got this from an article that Rich Miller wrote recently, 3M Demos New Immersion Cooling Technique.  The article stated, “At last week’s Data Center World conference, 3M demonstrated a data center cooling concept called ‘open bath immersion cooling,’ which it says is simpler and less expensive to implement than other pumped liquid cooling techniques.” Diane says: “When I heard ‘open bath immersion’ I knew I had to do a comic about it.”

And here it is! Enter your caption suggestions below.
