Virtualization limericks for St. Patrick’s Day

Colin Steele Colin Steele Profile: Colin Steele

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we asked our loyal readers to submit limericks about virtualization. And two lucky readers found a pot of gold at the end of their poetry rainbow: vSphere training videos from TrainSignal.

Congratulations to Kevin Davisson and Eric Stephenson. Kevin won a copy of “VMware vSphere Training“, and Eric won “VMware vSphere Pro Series Vol. 1.” Here are their limericks:

By Kevin Davisson:

One hundred-plus servers were lax
While resource utilization was max
So IT got wise
And said, “Virtualize!”
Now just 10 hosts remain in the racks!

By Eric Stephenson:

Virtualization was once dev and test
Now has become a production best
Legacy OSes have come and gone
Virtualize everything, you can’t go wrong
And physical servers are laid to rest

And here’s a limerick by Michael Caplan, who will receive a TrainSignal T-shirt:

There once was an organization
That ne’er heard of virtualization
But then they converted
Old equipment deserted
Saving money and time and frustration
