Apple Building a $250M Data Center in Central Oregon

Apple will be following the lead of several other major corporations in locating its newest data center in Prineville, Oregon. Facebook, Amazon, Google and several other mega-corps have located there mainly due to property tax exemptions in the county. The project once completed will create 35 full-time positions.

Apple needs storage capacity for its iCloud service to store customers' photos, music and movies. It has a large data center in North Carolina and is building a 100-acre, 20-megawatt solar array there.
