Apple today confirmed that it will announce details for “iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering,” at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference next Monday. The announcement confirms the long-held assumption here at data Center Knowledge that th size of Apple’s new data center in North Carolina was a sure sign of a coming cloud offering. It also confirms that Apple has acquired the iCloud.com domain name for the service.
Apple offered no additional details on the iCloud service. It’s long been known that the new data center in North Carolina would support iTunes and MobileMe. The suspense has been whether those services would undergo a cloud transformation that would explain the enormous scale of the 500,000 square foot iDataCenter in North Carolina.
