Apple Hires Former Head of Yahoo! Global Data Centres

Apple has hired Scott Noteboom, the man who was heading Yahoo!'s global data centre infrastructure, according to new and confirmed reports.

Keeping in mind Noteboom’s previous designation, it is highly likely that Apple will allocate him a key position in the management of its own data centres as well as servers. The company is reportedly planning on an expansion to its iTunes and iCloud services.

“He also managed over 10x growth of the company’s data centre/compute operating footprint, leading teams that installed and support multi hundred thousand hosts,” reads the Conference Bio of Noteboom, according to a MyBroadband report.

“Scott’s duties include managing all aspects of the data centre life cycle – from design, construction, operations, to de-commissions,” the bio adds.

The Cupertino headquartered technology giant just recently spent a massive $1 billion to build a brand new 500,000 square foot data centre. This new massive data centre, which has been named “Orchard” is located in Maiden, N.C.

Reports of Apple recruiting Noteboom was first filed by tech site GigaOm.
