  • Apple Planning Another North Carolina Facility

    The powers that be in Cupertino, California sure love the East Coast. In particular, North Carolina is a favorite destination for the iDevice maker when it comes time to build new facilities.

    This week, the blogosphere was buzzing with talk surrounding Apple's apparent decision to create a friendly neighbor for its sprawling data center in Maiden, North Carolina. On the drawing board for Apple is a second facility in that general location that will serve as a "tactical" center of sorts for the tech giant.

    Local reporters in North Carolina recently uncovered the plans, which call for a new, smaller data center on its Maiden campus. It is believed that the add-on in question will complete the company's total vision for the Maiden property.

    According to Apple’s design plans on file with Catawba County, the new 21,030-square-foot data center, also referred to as a “tactical” data center, will store clusters of servers. Permits filed with the county list the cost of the new 11-room data center at $1,885,129.
    With the operation comes no shortage of nuts and bolts to attend to. Apple is gearing up for the installation of 22 air conditioners, five fans, 14 humidifiers, six electric unit heaters, one electric duct heat louvers, and ductwork. Sources close to the project say the future building has been described as "a stand-alone metal building with a concrete pad."
