Apple Leasing New Data Center Space
Apple this week reportedly inked a seven-year lease to use an 11,000 square-foot chunk of data center space in Santa Clara, Calif. Apple is renting the Silicon Valley data center space from DuPont DuPont Fabros Technology (DFT). The lease is expected to begin when the building opens sometime between July and September this year, reports indicate.
Apple's new Silicon Valley data center will join its other West Coast data center space in Newark, Calif., and the data center at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.
Adding new space in Santa Clara shows that Apple is looking to bulk up its compute and storage capabilities to accommodate its impending cloud boom.
