Unlike Facebook and Google, when Apple decides to build a huge new data center, they’re not going to let anybody inside to see the technological marvels that they’ve cooked up. Apple just broke ground on a $68 million data center in Prinveville, Oregon, so rather than waiting forever to get an invite to tour the place, Wired sent out their spy plane to get some pictures.
Only a few parts of the data center have been completed, but it is interesting how close Apple is building their data center to Facebook’s gigantic new twin data center. Maybe being neighbors will help the two companies become best friends.
Here’s the pics of the future iCloud of the West.
Here’s a close up of the Tactical data center. Apple finished this building earlier this year, but the main site will be much larger. The data center is expected to be 338,000 square-feet, and Apple hopes to build a similar sized data center next to it in the future.
