How Apple's North Carolina data center got built

This week GigaOM took an extensive look at North Carolina and its many data centers. The fourth and final installment in this series focuses on Apple’s new data center in Maiden, North Carolina and covers some of the early negotiations between Catawba county officials and the Cupertino company.

Interestingly enough, Apple almost walked away from Maiden when the Catawba County Economic Development group tried to get the company to build its data center in a small mill building. You can read more about this background discussion on GigaOM’s website and catch all four articles in the series here.
