Friday Funny: A Data Center Safety Net

Here’s the cartoon for this month’s Data Center Knowledge caption contest.

Here’s how it works: Diane Alber, the Arizona artist who created Kip and Gary, creates a cartoon, and we challenge our readers to submit the funniest, most clever caption they think will be a fit. Then we ask our readers to vote for the best submission and the winner receives a signed print of the cartoon. Submit your caption for the cartoon above in the comments.

Congratulations to Todd, whose caption won the Tall Cabinets edition of the contest. His caption was: “So the National Basketball Association is our newest client, huh?”

Some good submissions came in for last month’s Herding Cats edition – all we need now is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below!

And you thought zombie servers were your biggest problem...

What should the bubble say?

  1. This isn't exactly what I had in mind when discussing net security.

    I don't think that's what they meant when they said to connect the racks to the web.

  3. I'm not sure how this fabric will improve performance.

  4. Anthony

    That is not what the client meant when they said "Servers in the net"

  5. Really?!?!?! This is how you setup NET flow on all racked routers?!?!?

    I don't care if your spidey sense is tingling, we're no experiencing a DDoS attack or See... I told you that the net wasn't down...
