Apple's massive North Carolina data center to go online next year
During Apple's Q3 2010 conference call, CFO Peter Oppenheimer revealed that Apple's massive North Carolina data center is on schedule and should go online in 2011. Oppenheimer didn't reveal what the data center would be used for but rumors persist of an iTunes.com streaming music, TV, and movie service.
With 100,000,000 iOS devices sold to date, additional rumors of an iOS Apple TV, and countless desktop iTunes installs on the market, pushing that much content would certainly need a world-class data center.
If this year's iPod touch event in September doesn't offer any clues, maybe next year's iPad event will?
