Friday Funny: Green Lighting in the Data Center
May 17th, 2013 By: Colleen Miller
It’s Friday and we’re ready for some humor. So let’s get to our Data Center Knowledge caption contest, with a new cartoon drawn by Diane Alber, our favorite data center cartoonist!
This week we present “Green Lighting.” Diane writes: “I just went to tour an amazing lighting center and they talked about they had a very large focus on green lighting by using LEDs and other light fixtures. So I thought Kip and Gary would take this “green lighting” thing to a new level.” Enter your caption suggestion below. Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor.
The caption contest works like this: We provide the cartoon and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion.
The winner will receive his or her caption in a signed print by Diane. Also, we must announce the winner of the previous cartoon, Joe, who submitted, “LEED Platinum here we come!” for May Flowers.
For the previous cartoons on DCK, see our Humor Channel.
Now our servers are running under green power

If performance is bad they turn yellow. If we’re in an outage they turn red. The Klaxxon installer will be here next week.
Um…that’s not exactly what I meant by green lighting.

These green lights will keep out OS bug free.
The LED Lights were too expensive so Marketing sent us these.

It makes you go blind, but the government taxes all the other colors to the hilt.
Sales and marketing have been telling our clients we have a green data center so now we have to install these to avoid a law suit.

“You can’t yell at me for my coffee cup because you have one too.”
The salesman told me they’ll improve our PUE by 10%

What do you think, Gary? After we install these new lights in the data center, should we “love it or list it?”

Green lights will help photosynthesis in servers.
