Suggestions for Unique Names for a Server Room?

Cliff posted more than 11 years ago | from the for-your-amusement dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 240

clutch110 asks: "I have been tasked with coming up with a name for our soon-to-be server room. Our president is renowned for these small tasks. I was told to create something funny and not nearly as obvious as 'Company Server Room'. So I come in hope that your everlasting humor can help me complete my quest for the most unique server room name in existance."

roseblood (631824) | more than 11 years ago | (#4940524)

Speaking of a place where females service males. Why not name the servers Sleepy, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc, etc. and call the room Snow White. It's the place where the one female is servicing all the males dwarves.

Worst. Ask Slashdot. Ever. (-1, Offtopic)

Anyway, my company has given me a miniscule, trivial task. It insults my intelligence! I could do this stuff in my sleep!

Chiggy_Von_Richtoffe (565992) | more than 11 years ago | (#4939857)

if it's in the basement you can always call it:
Moria
The Ninth Circle
(with individual servers named Faust, Mephisto, Lucifer, Phil, ect...ect...)

If it's a small room, you can just stick a british "Police" sign on the outside (ala Dr. Who).

if you are running really big iron, place a "Welcome to Urbana Illinios" sign on the door. (birth place of H.A.L., S.A.L., et al.)

but if you have a DC fetish (come on we can smell our own here, it's Slashdot) you can choose from christening it the "Fortress of Solitude", "Bat Cave", "OA", or "S.T.A.R. Labs"

BTW someone sugested "the Brothel" LOL, wouldn't be so sure that the suits wouold be happy to roll along with that one.

He forgot to mention that, at his president's request, the bathroom already bears the well-deserved title "Fortress of Solitude."

With enough unnecessary drooping wires, flat panel displays, and strategically placed green cold cathode lamps, you could easily call it "The Nebuchadnezzar (or The Core thereof)" and the office would be called The City of Zion. The same decor would work for a Borg Cube theme, and all the "message from the sysadmin" letters would start with "We Are The Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile."

I always wanted to do that. "Umm, my computer is broken, I can't do my work..." "YOUR COMPUTER IS IRRELEVANT. WORK IS IRRELEVANT. YOU WILL SURRENDER...Oh, sorry, permissions were set wrong, you should be ok now."

While you're at it, if you've got three large servers you can call them Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar, and collectively "The Magi".

And major system problems can henceforth be named/numbered after the Angels. "Uh oh - the Second Angel has attacked."

Then you should come to my company's server room. It set so they can take clients through on tours, and they WON'T need a coat. It's the warmest server room I've ever been in. In fact, due to their poor planning, there are spots in the room that actually make you sweat as they are so hot.

Oh and they just built this room like 6 months ago, so it has 3 industral air conditioning units....

Call it The Basket. Then you can refer to the machines as Eggs.

You could also call it the Don't Panic room, or the Champagne Room, or the One True Server Room, or the Fruity Pebbles room, or the Room Without A Window, or the Mush Room, or the Big Blue Room (or, alternatively, the Little White/Gray/Whatever Room).

You asked for unique though. Most unique thing I can think of is to cat /dev/urandom or whatever that command is, then tack the output on the door. If you wanted to be really creative, you could put up a little LED sign that outputs /dev/urandom. That way your server room will always have a unique name. Everyone will just refer to it as the server room no matter what name you pick, so why not give them a good reason to use the generic term?

Well, the story submitter wanted a name for a room. Personally, I'd choose "The Dorkroom," (keeping the lights low was standard at my old company). It's pretty normal to name computers in a work environment. After all, if a computer goes down, do you want to say, "hey, 192.168.115.32 is down," or would you rather say, "hey, Rainier is down!"

I have an employee like you. Insipid yet the co-founder's brother. Washed out of MCSE-school. I keep giving him projects but end up having to do the meaningful ones myself.

Case in point: we have extra consumer good inventory so I told him to eBay it and use my account. 2 months later he's listed one item and, when asked, complained that the "upload a picture" function "doesn't work." Yeah, I noticed all those missing photos in other people's auctions. Right.

Also, I told him to install an evaluation copy of Exchange (for comparison to other products). 2 weeks later he's unable to download all the service packs. Maybe, I think. 2 weeks later he can't get it to work. I look. Active Directory is set up (correctly--but exactly like the manual suggests) so I ask, "what's the problem?" He says: I can't find where you add the email address in Exchange. So, I ask "isn't that what Active Directory is for?" Answer: "wha?"

So, I now give him the tasks like "name the server" and "pick the place for lunch."

Instead of putting a fixed nameplate on the door to the server room at the high school where I work, we mounted the kind that you can slide plates in and out of. The plan is to accumulate different plates over time and rotate between them.

  • Authorized Personel Only
  • Inner Sanctum
  • Pumpkin Patch
  • Santa's Workshop

Other suggestions are welcome (I plan to steal liberally from those already posted).

name it after the local ballpark that way you can tell the boss he doesn't have to get tickets to go to (name of local ballpark) anymore.. and he can get more work done that way....

WC (5, Funny)

Ages ago I worked with someone who (with malace aforethought) got everyone to refer to the small room where we delt with all the network/phone interconnects as "the Wiring Closet", and then started shortening it to "the W. C." in memos, and finally (once everyone was numbed to it) put a sign on the door with just the letters "WC".

And then he waited waited...

For what, someone to walk in and take a piss on the rack?

Seasonal ... (1)

You could call it the North Pole and name your
servers after Santa and the reindeer.

Hell (1)

Call it Hell.

Then you can tell your boss, "If you want it fixed, go to Hell!"

Use an icon-like sign (2)

You know how many restrooms have the icon for "men" and "women"? How about such a sign for "propeller-heads", after the old geek trend of wearing the propeller-beanie?

Ooh, I like the idea, but here's a better idea for the icon. Have you ever seen the LAN Party [thinkgeek.com] shirt at Thinkgeek? Get a sign with that picture on it, and put it up on the door to the server room.

Something spooky, maybe? (1)

Try Area 51 . Or maybe The Black Crypt , or something in that vein. After all, lots of strange things not from this world happen in machine rooms. Trust me...

Heinlein (1)

Well, if you're partial to Heinlein's "Number of the Beast" universe(s), Boondock would do nicely. This also gives you a large pool of potential server names...

Proving Ground (2)

faster (21765) | more than 11 years ago | (#4941167)

I named a test lab 'companyname Proving Ground' once. That could work for a server room also...

I also named all the machines and user accounts (used for testing) after famous disasters, e.g. hindenberg, pinto, bush, etc.

Full disclosure: I didn't come up with the name myself; thanks Baba.

Call it... (2)

macdaddy357 (582412) | more than 11 years ago | (#4941177)

... The magic voodoo box room.

use man or apropos (2)

qengho (54305) | more than 11 years ago | (#4941228)

No manual entry for server room

server room: nothing appropriate

Your sign should say (1)
