Apple Considering Building Large Data Center in Prineville Oregon
Posted on December 4, 2011 by eli courey
Apple is nearing a decision whether to build a large data center in Prineville, Oregon, about a quarter mile south of the Facebook server farm that recently opened. The information comes from two people with direct knowledge of Apple’s plans.
Those familiar with the discussions say that Apple’s Oregon plans have been in flux while it awaited word on whether there would be adequate electricity transmission in Prineville to meet its needs.
With transmission capacity expanding and other companies now looking elsewhere, a door opened for Apple.
