VMworld 2010 Rap : vSpecialist’s Delight

Both Fred Nix and I have been hinting about our *secret project* for weeks now. Well, I am excited to finally present you with the completed work.

Without further ado, vSpecialist’s Delight

This project was a ton of fun and a ton of work. I wanted to give a special thanks to Travers Nicholas, Paula Cuddy, John Avery, Ed Saipetch, Clint Kitson, Chris Birdwell, and Ryan Melton. I also want to thank Marlen and Curtis at PatchWerk Studios for helping us so much.

But, most of all I want to thank Fred Nix for making this project a reality. He took an idea I shared with him over a beer and made it not only possible but absolutely amazing. Fred jumped legal, financial, logistical, and human barriers with patience and style. The guy is a rockstar and a good friend.

Here is a video from the premier at the vGeek party:

Here are the lyrics for the song for those that asked:

I’m with Chad’s Army on the virtual patrol
Gotta make sure that my cloud is gold
Analysts say we hit it onn the nose
You from the IT department, Im tha C.I.O.
Adding Ram for your JAVA code
We be celebrating the budget had enough dough
CAP-EX, OP-EX is outa control..
Tweetin’ banana bread because Wade said so
We got beef with security, they don’t use RSA
They don’t know ‘bout no S.L.A. SO!
Tier-1 apps running on my assets
vSphere saves ‘em cash for tech refresh,
We don’t know what you take us as,
Or understand the intelligence that Sak-kac has
We are the vSpecialist crew we get the job done…

[Chorus]
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done

[Verse Two]
The year’s twenty-ten you’ve gots problems again.
Better journey to cloud just like John Glenn
You gots two choices, yall virtualize or
Drop some cash on some datacenter floor
Now I ain’t trying to start a backup race
Data Domain and Avamar will win that race So
I have a meeting with my database guy He says
“I don’t get it… why virtualize?”
Cause it’s fast an’ efficient and it saves me dough and it gives me much mo’
rackspace on my flo’
Should we P2V or should I guess some mo’?
“Well you was runnin’ 10000 vm’s on a vBlock and more “License of application
and step off the console”…
“Are you got a MacBook on you I know a lot of you do”
Yah, Im in Chad’s Army and I know a little bit…
Enough that you won’t login to my kit…
“We’ll see how smart you are when the competitors come”
We are the vSpecialist crew we get the job done…

[Chorus]
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
We’re number #1
vSpecialist we get the job done
