Apple to bring cloud computing to iTunes

According to Michael Robertson, a digital music expert, iTunes will soon have a feature that allows users to back up all their music to the cloud:

An upcoming major revision of iTunes will copy each user’s catalog to the net making it available from any browser or net connected ipod/touch/tablet

Such a feature would no doubt be very useful to consumers. The ability to access your music anywhere at any time and always have a backup in place will help keep iTunes ahead of the pack. But maintaining a facility large enough to handle all this data is a modern miracle itself.

As it turns out, the Apple data center currently under construction in North Carolina we covered last year will be used to power the iTunes cloud. Once completed, it will be one of the largest in the world– five times the size of its current data center.
