Apple plans huge Hong Kong data center

Apple plans to open an enormous data center in Hong Kong SAR, China, according to 9to5Mac. The location will be near the Shenzhen, China border, and a bidding contractor employee suggests that the scale of the center will be massive.

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013, and the center should be operational by 2015. The article notes that companies often select Hong Kong for data centers due to both its autonomy — which keeps the Chinese government away from private data — and its close proximity to mainland China. Apple has also recently filed plans for a data center in Prineville, Oregon, and announced plans for a data center and a business and purchasing center in Reno, Nevada.
