Friday Funny: Hitting the Links

15 comments

It’s finally Friday! And that means it’s time for our “before the weekend” Friday caption contest, with cartoons drawn by Diane Alber, our fav data center cartoonist! Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.

This time, Kip and Gary are hitting the links! Diane writes: “I know a lot of people in this industry that love to golf. So I thought, Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could be golfing while your working? You could, if your modular data center was located right on the golf course!”

    If our workload is up in the cloud why is it getting in the way at the golf course?!

  2. Do that is what "runs on green" means

    The new clean generators run off sympathetic frustration.

    Although I like your forward thinking on the mobile DC concept I'm not sure the technology is quite there yet.

    Kip, "I'm using new irons." Gary, "So am I..."

  12. So I remember this promise from every vendor; from when they called it Systems Management; to Business Process Management and we took calls direct into op's for problems; region not up, LU down; now it's just page won't load & PC to tablet won't boot. In between we added ticketing systems that where to provide self service knowledge base. Then we where going to do that across WEP and our phones. Is not the goal of Automation n IT to give us more time regardless where we choose to spend it; yet we just get a technology down and perfected and we run to the next buzzword every vendor is selling that will create this utopia; and yet I have not reached Zen and don't expect cloud to do it either. So where is my extra time; why have the calls just converted to trouble tickets that get routed and not handled in some type of automation.. I am getting tired of being pressured to hurry up and putt, its no wonder I am always a 3 putter and 20 over par for the course. :)
