Apple’s is in the midst of setting up an impressively large 500,000 square foot data center in Maiden, North Carolina, making it nearly 5 times larger than Apple’s data center in Newark, California. The size of Apple’s new data center makes it one of the biggest in the world, and the $1 billion its investing in the site dwarfs the half a million figure companies like Google and Microsoft typically invest in their own data centers.
