Friday Funny: Into Every Life, A Little Rain Must Fall
April 12th, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday and time for a little data center humor! Before you head out for the weekend, add your suggestions for the data center cartoon caption contest below.
This time, our data center gurus, Kip and Gary, are facing a little indoor water feature in the data hall.
For those of you who don’t know, 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.
Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center cartoon humor.
For the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel.

Gary if you work in the cloud you’ll need an umbrella
The good news is we can do 90kW per rack. The bad news is it seems to generate sporadic rain clouds after customers get past 70kW.

Hey Gary, use this umbrella, I’ve put on others like that under on all liquid sensors and worked fine.
Would you please stop raining on my paRAID!
My 2c…it’s the biggest downside of cloud computing.
It’s our next generation VESDA system. Maybe your coffee is too hot?

I think our HVAC guys missed the “non-condensing” part of our PUE improvement plan.

Hey Gary, would you mind holding this umbrella over the nearest cabinet, just in case?

We better get a bucket. It looks like our cloud has a data leak again.

Dark cloud computing sucks!

You are going to need a tap on the head to go with the water on the brain!!

Maybe we should use our old “meat locker” curtains to make a bigger umbrella…???
