Submission + - Apple May Build Data Center Next to Facebook (oregonlive.com)

1sockchuck writes: Apple may build a huge new data center next door to the Facebook server farm in rural Prineville, Oregon. Slashdot has previously noted the potential that Prineville could become a data center mecca due to its climate, which is ideal for using fresh air to cool servers. The scenario could mirror the trend in rural North Carolina, where both Apple and Facebook have built data centers. it’s always been likely that Apple will need at least one other large data center complex to provide backup capabilities for the facility in North Carolina.
