Friday Funny: Taking Data Center Site Selection Underwater

Is this where we’re going to deploy our next server pod?

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

This is 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 Darrell R., whose caption won the Herding Cats edition of the contest. His caption was: “I said get CAT6, not 6 Cats!”

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

  1. Hmmm. Sharks. I'll add that to our list of risks to consider.

    I think we needed a "submarine communication cable", not a submarine AND a fiber cable?!?!

    I bet you get a great deal on liquid cooling down here!

  4. John Hoyt

    Well, that takes a bite out of our physical security concerns.

  5. Gigantic shark? Air bubbling out the periscope? Gary at the controls? SURFACE! SURFACE!

    When they said the underwater data center would have a mantrap, this wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

    I know we need to get closer to the fiber, but something is off about this broker...
