Apple has built a huge new data center in Maiden, North Carolina.
As reported earlier, Apple will stream again a media event live. It has been several years that Apple has done that. Back then (until 2004?) Apple was showing off the QuickTime Streaming server. Now the streaming of the live event could just be another demonstration of something new.
According to Cult of Mac, Apple is live streaming the September 1 keynote to test the new Server farm the are building in Maiden, North Carolina. The new Apple data center is supposed costing Apple $1 billion and is one of the largest ever built. It is supposed to go fully operational later this year. It has been long rumored that Apple will use the new data center for a cloud based iTunes service. Now Apple might just break it in with streaming a Steve Jobs keynote.
Let's hope the servers keep the http stream up. HD would be nice too.
