Apple Begins Construction of iCloud Data Center

Apple is beginning construction on its new 338k square foot iCloud Data Center located in Prineville, Oregon. The facility is to be a ‘green’ data center and ultimately house 14 data halls at an estimated cost of a total between $250 Million to one Billion dollars upon final completion.

Aside from two local utility companies, Apple has tapped a number of renewable energy providers to feed electricity to the facility, including firms dealing in wind, hydro, and geothermal power.
