How many Blackboxes can you buy with 1 Le Reve?

With ONE of these…

…you could buy ~SEVENTY of these (Sun’s newly announced mobile datacenters):

UNLESS, of course, you accidentally poke your elbow through it.

    Interesting that you mentioned Le Reve. That was one of the first names for Bellagio. Back in the day when I worked for Mirage Resorts, we did “blackbox” all the time. Granted they were construction trailers, but the exact same concept. The data centers in the in these mega-resorts need to be up far in advance of the building being ready.

    Le Reve was in the Bellagio museum — you may have seen it. Wynn seems to be obsessed with it. He also was going to name the Wynn Hotel after it and as I understand, he was the one to name the Cirque show at the Wynn Le Reve. Sounds like Le Reve found a permanent home with him now. 🙂
    Now that you mention it, the use if mobile data centers at mega casino resorts makes perfect sense…not only to just get them up and running quickly.

    First Orignal Names:
    Bellagio = Le Reve (also Beau Rivage)
    Beau Rivage = Le Reve
    Wynn Las Vegas = Le Reve
    Cirque Shows = Le Reve
