Earlier this year, the Cloud Power billboard vComeback Contest was a good chance to get creative — quite a few clever entries were submitted and a good time was had by [almost] all. But today something peculiar is afoot at the Cloud Power billboard. For those of you who don’t frequent highway 101 through Silicon Valley, here’s a glimpse:
As it turns out, this Microsoft Cloud wasn’t zoned for optimal utilization — it ended up in a construction site. Sort of like unsuspecting consumers of the Office 365 service, which is so prominently featured on the sign. Or, as they say at Azure: Temporary “DNS issue” folks. Nothing to see here.
Submit Your Caption for a Chance to Win!
Here are a few examples to get you started:
- This cloud looked a lot taller in the brochure.
- Are they building an entrance? Or an exit?
- Traffic fines doubled… and so have my operational costs!
Google vs. Microsoft
Want to know the real irony here? This obstruction is a pedestrian footbridge that will be frequented by Google employees on their commute to one of many buildings in the area. You can’t make this stuff up.
