AppleInsider: The Reno iDataCenter Has a Moat

The AppleInsider blog has been following every detail of the company’s data center construction project in Reno, Nevada, including a post today with a series of photos of the site. The most interesting wrinkle: a series of large culverts that effectively form a moat around the section of the property where the company is building its data halls. Beyond on-site drainage management, the new photos don’t reveal much about the project or how it may reflect the evolution of the company’s design. Apple has filed plans with local officials to build two data halls totaling 50,000 square feet, which is a pretty modest first phase.

But the new photos certainly reflect the excitement about these data center projects within the Apple community.  For full coverage, see AppleInsider.
