Apple is planning to further expand at its Reno, Nevada data center site, reports the Reno Gazette-Journal, citing a recent permit Apple filed with Washoe County. Apple has requested permission to build a new data center adjacent to its exiting data center.

Over the past several years, Apple has expanded at the site of its original data center several times to add on new buildings, but its most recent permit suggests it is seeking to build a second data center nearby under the codename "Project Huckleberry."

Project Huckleberry's plans call for several new data center clusters and a support building, similar to the current "Project Mills" data center on the site.

"It's a whole different set of buildings but it looks like it is going to be essentially the same design as Project Mills, only turned perpendicularly to the east," said Trevor Lloyd, senior planner for Washoe County Planning and Development's Community Services.

Apple's existing data center on its Reno campus is operational, but still under development. When finished, it is expected to encompass 14 buildings and 412,000 square feet. Apple's second data center will be similar in size, with the site also eventually including an accompanying solar farm.

But you'd live in Reno! Just think about the perks of that! (pregnant pause)
I do live in Reno, and it's the best place I've ever lived.

Over 250 days of sunshine a year.
Temperature rarely gets over 95 degrees in the middle of the summer.
Lake Tahoe
River rafting
Hiking
Skiing
Low cost of living (for now)
No traffic
Newer 2000 sq ft house for $200K
4 hours from the largest tech companies in the world, who I work with on a daily basis.
Family is all here
Met the love of my life


Yes, sounds like a terrible place to live.

The good new is that Russia is re targeting some of its ICBMs away from American cities and aiming them at Apple data centers.

Fun fact: Apple retail employees make more than the sysadmins at the Reno data center.

I was offered a job there and turned it down for the low salary and having to re-negotiate the employment contract every 6 months - 1 year.
