Gangnam Style in the Data Center


Gangnam style comes to the data center, courtesy of EMC.

It had to happen eventually: A “Gangnam Style” parody with IT professionals doing the Psy “horse dance” in the aisles of a data center. This “Oopa EMC Style” performance is brought to you via a YouTube video from “Chad Sakac and the EMC Giddyups.” Sakac is senior VP of Global Systems Engineering at EMC, aleading player in the storage market. “It took about 9 hours to record, and I was popping in and out to meet with customers and various folks at Cisco as we recorded it at the EMC campus in Santa Clara,” Chad writes in a blog post, in which he introduces his dance partners. We don;t think any of them should quit their day jobs just yet, but the lyrics and setting provide some good Friday fun to ease you into your weekend.
