Friday Funny: Close Encounters of the Data Center Kind

Happy Friday! At the end of the work week, we take a little time for some data center humor. Before your weekend, submit caption suggestions for our latest cartoon about a “close encounter” in the data center. Many thanks to all who submit some pretty humorous caption suggestions each week. Diane Alber, our fav data center cartoonist, writes, “I thought I would take sending your information to the “cloud” to a whole new level. . .”

The caption contest works like this: We provide the cartoon (drawn by Diane) and you, our readers, submit the captions. We then choose finalists and the readers vote for their favorite funniest suggestion. After reader voting, the winner will receive his or her caption in a signed print by to enlarge graphic.

Please visit Diane’s website Kip and Gary for more of her data center humor. To see our previous cartoons, visit Data Center Knowledge’s Humor Channel.

    Yes, Kip, our company decided to move our DataCenter to the Cloud ... but I'm not sure it should be interpreted so literally.
