Friday Funny: Modular Data Center

Thought we didn’t need a raised floor for one of these…

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 below in the comments below.

Congratulations to Tim Dickey, who won March’s contest for the White Space cartoon. Tim’s caption was:

I’m not sure if the Product team understood the meaning of ‘greenfield’ data center.

Some good submissions came in for April’s Trade Show edition; all we need now is a winner. Help us out by submitting your vote below:

    Oh boy Gary......I thought you ordered a portable data "drive"? Accounting isn't going to be happy!

    My first thought was that a Peterbilt lost the back end of his refrigerated trailer. But now that I think about it, I swear it reminds me of the first scenes of "Jurassic Park". And if we open that gate, we're Raptor bait!"
