Apple is believed to have nicked the general manager of Microsoft's Datacenter Services Kevin Timmons, a skilled and highly cost-effective cloud builder.
He's not working at Microsoft anymore and the Green (Low Carbon) Data Center Blog expects him to turn up at Apple. What as nobody's sure but apparently he's not meant to replace Apple's data center chief Olivier Sanche who died suddenly last year. That job is already filled.
Data Center Knowledge thinks it has something to do with a cloud expansion beyond the reportedly vast facility Apple has been building in North Carolina.
Timmons only joined Microsoft in June of 2009. He had been VP of operations at Yahoo. He's quoted as saying, "Challenge everything you know about a traditional data center. From the walls to the roof to where it needs to be built, challenge everything."
