Data Centers - Consolidation and Growth
The vast ecosystem that comprises the data center market has not escaped the clutches of the global economic slump, however, the news for 2010 and beyond is signiicantly rosier. No matter where one looks, data centers appear to be getting bigger and bigger. Steve Jobs, the iPhone and of course the iPad continue to get significant press. Far from the compact nature of either of these devices, Apple's massive new data center project remains the topic of much news and speculation. Still under construction in Maiden, North Carolina, this $1 billion data center will be approximately half a million square feet which is roughly five times larger than the existing Newark, California center which tops out at a mere 109,000 square feet.
