• Apple Purportedly Planning Euro-Based Data Center

    A European blog is reporting today that Apple is considering a new data center it hopes to open in Europe.

    Based in the Netherlands, the rumored high-end facility may not fly Apple's flag until a formal decision on the datacenter is made by the iDevice maker. We're told that decision may not come until year's end as Apple continues to weigh and evaluate options.

    Nonetheless, these facilities are of increasing importance to Apple, as evidenced by its domestic datacenters that are used to help Apple power an ever-growing array of services.

    “Eemshaven is an ideal location due to the high-speed transatlantic fiber optic cable link to the USA,” the report reads. “Google already has a 10,000 square meter data center in the town, and it is believed that Apple has already been granted outline planning permission for its own center.”

    The nearly $3 billion datacenter is projected to create between 150 and 200 new jobs in the region.
