Welcome to first ever tour of the Unicorn Power SDN Data Centre of Today.
Here is guided tour of the latest in networking and data centre technology as modelled with our “Unicorn Poo™” Design Methodology.
If you were to peer through the only “Window in the Data Centre” you might see some tantalising hints of the hard but exciting work being performed inside.
Let us enter through the Security Door of Happiness to discover the delights and stimulation of the data centre.
Once through the door your eyes with inevitably be drawn to the focus of the entire building. The Unicorn Power Source which generates all of the SDN energy in the building.
Your eyes shall feast on the beauty and the glory of this supernatural being that has the power to create the most ultimate network and compute platform of the FUTURE
Of course, June the Data Centre Manager, is collecting all the Unicorn Poo for recycling for the security platform.
Speaking of the security platform, lets head over the SRX corner where the Securitards have actually caught a miscreant in action. Yes, the Junos WebApp Secure platform detected the naughty person who wanted to steal the Unicorn Poo and has safely locked them up in the SRX jail.
Over by the compute racks, we can see the MX and EX switches are doing their thing by connecting all the magic to the ‘puters.
Tucked away in the corner is the Network Director, punching the keys to keep the service delivery in action
While many people forget the HellDesk Operator, we haven’t. These are the people who do the real work.
Except for the network plumber. Here is Greg “Etherealmind” Ferro performing the magic of connectivity by keeping the poop in the pipes.
He seems to be enjoying his job!!!!
As we reach the end of our tour, we find the storage cowboy playing with all the levers on the storage arrays ……
Well that is it for our little tour of the Unicorn Power Data Centre of Today. Thanks so much for joking me on this tour of of our fine facility.
Thanks to My Team
I’d like to thank my Data Centre Design team for planning and delivering on this project.
Thanks also to Juniper and Ashton Bothman for the invitation to build a Lego Data Center as a “competition” where the winner is judged and a prize shall be awarded to a charity of choice.
