Data-cen­ter con­struc­tion un­der way for Ap­ple Inc.

The Washington Times Daily - - Business -

MAIDEN | Con­struc­tion work is un­der way at Ap­ple Inc.’s data cen­ter in North Carolina, which will be pow­ered in part by a pri­vate so­lar farm be­ing built by the com­pany.

The Hick­ory Daily Record re­ports that en­vi­ron­men­tal per­mits have been is­sued for con­struc­tion at the data-cen­ter cam­pus in the town of Maiden. Also, a contractor for work at the site has filed for a build­ing per­mit. It’s not clear if the con­struc­tion is for a sec­ond data cen­ter that was planned, or for some­thing else.

Ap­ple, based in Cu­per­tino, Calif., uses the data cen­ter to store in­for­ma­tion as part of its icloud net­work.

Maiden town man­ager Todd Herms told the news­pa­per he couldn’t say ex­actly what the com­pany was build­ing.
