Apple is considering doubling the size of its already massive data center being built in western North Carolina, according to a report today in the Wall Street Journal.
Apple's $1 billion data center in Maiden, about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte, will include 500,000 square feet of space. It's expected to employ 50 people.
The report on the Journal's All Things Digital blog notes that Apple may be considering using the facility to offer so-called "cloud services" for iTunes and other products.
That would mean iTunes libraries would be streamed to users and could be accessed from anywhere.
