The North Carolina data center Apple built a few years back wasn’t enough, so the company built an identical one next to it, cookie-cutter style. Now apparently that’s not enough either, which is why Apple is once again building another data center, this one in Prineville, Ore. So what does Apple need all this data space for?
Facebook just took the wraps off its fifth data center, with this one landing in Fort Worth, Texas. Like most things at Facebook, the center already has its own Facebook Page. The Fort Worth location joins the four existing centers in Oregon, Iowa, North Carolina, and Sweden. Like its immediate predecessor in Iowa, the data center will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy.
