Apple buys Newark facility
Apple has acquired an "impressively equipped but never-used" data center in Newark, Californa for an estimated $45 million to $50 million. The San Jose Business Journal reports that the 107,000-square-foot facility, which was originally conceived for MCI WorldCom, is designed to house computing, data-storage and networking equipment, offering "Tier IV" amenities such redundancy and security. The reports says that Apple has also just signed deals for the entire 116,830-square-foot office complex at 10400-10450 Ridgeview Ct. in Cupertino--which includes about 56,315 square feet leased directly from property owner Grosvenor International and 60,515 subleased from IBM.
