Apple's Maiden, NC data center has yet to open and there is already news that the company is planning to double the size of the server farm to 1 million square feet. The expansion of the facility, which is set to open any day now, according to local officials, demonstrates Apple's belief in the cloud, says Ray Willington at HotHardware.
