Reno, NV Woos Apple In Building 350-Acre Data Center, $1 Billion Investment Over 10 Years
The center will reportedly be a 350-acre monolith, with tons of servers inside. After it's built, at least 35 full-time employees will be on staff to man it, as well as 200 contract workers. All told, experts are expecting around $340 million in economic activity to hit the Reno area due to this data center alone. In response to the tax breaks, Apple pledged to invest $1 billion in the area over a decade -- not chump change, you see.
It's highly unlikely that this will be Apple's last data center, too. If you're looking to bring one to your town, however, we'd suggest breaking out the bag-o-tricks on the taxation front.
