Apple's New Data Center in North Carolina [Google Earth Image]

As we know WWDC is going to start in a few days, and We all are sure that Apple is going to revealed their iCloud service as well as iOS 5 and the new Mac OS. But here we've got an Interesting news which Apple didn't want to tell their fans for a long time but finally Google Earth has revealed it.
Apple's new Data Center in North Carolina has been revealed, the Image which you're seeing below is taken from Google Earth. It shows the 500,000-square foot site Data center which is situated at Maiden a small town in North Carolina.

Philip Elmer-DeWitt of Fortune Explains:
But if you asked Google Earth or Google Maps to show you the intersection of U.S. Route 321 and Startown Road — where the data center is located – the current satellite imagery stopped a few yards short of the construction site. West of Startown Road, there was, as recently as two weeks ago, nothing but woods and farmland and a bit of driveway that ended abruptly in the middle of a field.

After Apple’s announcement Tuesday that Steve Jobs was ready to reveal iCloud — the “upcoming cloud services offering” presumably based in Maiden, N.C. — we thought we’d give Google Maps another try.

Lo and behold, there it was: A huge, white, nondescript building with a road leading in, a road leading out, and almost no employee parking
