    Default Apple Confirms "Green" Data Center in Oregon



    Apple confirmed Tuesday plans to build a massive data center in Prineville Oregon, confirming rumors that emerged late last year.

    Last week documents with Apple’s name on it emerged at the Crook County clerks office and local TV station KTVZ confirmed the plans with Apple. The development, known as “Project Maverick”, will involve building a data center on a 160-acre plot of land purchased for $5.6 million. County commissioners signed the deed for the purchase on Feb. 15 coinciding with a decision by the Oregon state senate voted in a bill that removed earlier threats of property taxes for data centers.

    The usual non-disclosure agreements were issued to county officials by Apple preventing any unwanted information on the development from coming out. However, one judge did say that the project would be “good for Prineville and Crook County.”

    Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet did little more than confirm that the facility will exist, and that it will be “green.”

    Yeah for green. How many jobs come with a data center besides the construction?

    4.....Maybe 6, depending on how messy these computers are, they might need to hire a few janitors. You know what would be a exciting Nightline "special"....."Artificial life inside Apples Magical Data Center". That would be a extremely exciting hour of television.

    I think the North Carolina data center employs between 50 to 100 employees for Apple. That does not include jobs created for construction, landscaping, security etc. Wal-Mart super centers employ more people.

    By green they mean the entire building is going to be painted forest green.
