Apple to Build Data Center in Oregon

"Apple confirmed plans to build a data center in Pineville Prineville, Oregon following the release of a land purchase report from Crook County. The company was first rumored to be considering the location in December 2011."

Great deal for Oregon, and Apple didn't do too bad either since they paid $5.6 million for 160 acres. And it doesn't hurt that Facebook has a similar facility close by, to give them a good idea on how it is to work with this community. You can read more about it at the KTVZ website.

Apple's North Carolina Data Center on Google Maps

"While most of the mystery of Apple's North Carolina data super center comes from the fact that we're still not really sure what Cupertino will be using it for, let's not underestimate another contributing factor to the intrigue: the fact that Apple's Maiden, North Carolina data center appears as a big, gaping hole in the Earth under Google Maps. But no longer!"

It had been under cloud cover at Apple's request, so now that the WWDC is less than a week away, Google was given the go ahead to unveil it to the world. Ok. Big white building. But we now know that it does exist.

Apple "Burned" by Greenpeace Report

"Apple came in at the bottom of a new report from Greenpeace (which is being presented at Green:Net today) detailing the energy choices made by major IT companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook and more."

The report is available here and is called "How Dirty is Your Data?" In it, Greenpeace slams Apple mainly because the location of their new data center is in North Carolina, the heart of coal country, thus making it more reliant on fossil fuels than if they had built it in another more eco-friendly location. Greenpeace was quick to add that we shouldn't make too much of this report yet since Apple hasn't even started using this new center so the figures used are estimates. Seems rather silly to even put out the report if you can't base it on facts. Yes, I realize due to the location that the odds are certainly that fossil fuel will provide the power but we don't even know what kinds of ways Apple is going to mitigate this so why not wait until we get the facts. Inconvenient I suppose.
