Apple Poaches Yahoo Data Center Guru
As first reported by GigaOM, Scott Noteboom, who has served as Yahoo’s head of Global Data Center Infrastructure since joining the company in 2005, has found a new gig. At Apple. According to his LinkedIn profile, Noteboom train-hopped to Cupertino earlier this month. His duties there aren’t entirely clear, though given his background he’ll likely be helping oversee the data centers at the back end of Apple’s iTunes Match and iCloud service offerings.
