iCloud, billion-dollar data center.
WWDC2011 recent end of Steve Jobs, also without hesitation after the annual One More Things had been introduced to Apple's data center in North Carolina as of the ending episodes. The so-called cloud services, the actual scale of the facility or how much the landscape that was introduced by accident and was very impressive. Rather than impressive, attractive and perhaps more accurate, for computer buffs.
Apple launched the current top form "iCloud" service called. Data centers and servers needed to install it, what will the scale of how much that is difficult to imagine. These photos can be shot will feel the magnitude of the scale.
This large-scale data center was built in Maiden, NC 500,000 square feet (about 65,000,004 square meters), so it's about five times the size of Apple's other data centers. This data center construction cost of approximately $ 1.0 billion, but that amount is likely double the amount of capital investment in cloud computing as usual. Apple's cloud services "iCloud" is constructed in such a vast data centers.
Had been introduced some photos inside the data center is just full of servers (Jobs, "It's expensive staff" was saying.) And that's very cool scene, I felt the ultimate in beauty of the hardware. Its landscape beauty and the noise would be contrary to the tremendous server. I do not want it a little imagination.
