Greetings from Singapore

I am in Singapore this week running a teach the teacher seminar on Storwize V7000.  We are creating more instructors as demand for courses on the product continues to increase.

I am fortunate to be staying at the Marina Bay Sands Resort, which is one of the most mind blowing facilities I have ever seen.   Check out this view of the Infinity Pool from the Skydeck up on the 57th floor.

Out my hotel window they are building a huge new facility known as Gardens by the Bay, but frankly I think it looks more a spaceport!

According to Wikipedia these are Supertrees:  tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens landscape with heights that range between 25 and 50 metres. They are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading and working as environmental engines for the gardens.

But doesn’t this look like two huge crashed spaceships?

Actually they will be giant conservatories.  According to Wikipedia they are the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest.

They certainly know how to think big in Singapore!
