Apple’s new data-centre in north Carolina, which is to be used for their new online storage facility “iCloud” has just become visible on Google Earth. Previously, Google Earth’s coverage stopped just short of the data-centre, but it has just shown up.
“If you asked Google Earth or Google Maps to show you the intersection of U.S. Route 321 and Startown Road — where the data center is located — the current satellite imagery stopped a few yards short of the construction site. West of Startown Road, there was, as recently as two weeks ago, nothing but woods and farmland and a bit of driveway that ended abruptly in the middle of a field.”
You can check out the data-centre for yourself by following this link or typing these co-ordinates into Google Earth or Maps: 35.588364, -81.26235
