[PRESS RELEASE] – TurnKey Internet, Inc. Offers Colocation Deal During Expansion of Data Center   no comments

cranedayLATHAM, NEW YORK (August 28, 2013, 2013) – Sustainable IT solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that after a month of ongoing expansions to their data center, the company will be offering a deal to new clients on colocation services. This offer allows clients to sign up for three free months while placing their IT infrastructure into TurnKey Internet’s SSAE-16 Type II certified data center. With this colocation service, TurnKey Internet provides the benefits of tech management and superior uptime, as well as giving clients their own complete control and accessibility to their servers.

“We have seen an increase of interest for colocation services from both companies across the globe and right here in New York,” said TurnKey Internet’s CEO, Adam Wills. “Many of whom are looking to have their IT infrastructure managed because of our business continuity. Our clients’ servers are placed among the most energy-efficient equipment to date, and in a green and sustainable data center. With the expansion of our facility, we want to welcome new clients to show them the benefits of colocation, and how TurnKey can help simplify their IT needs.”

TurnKey Internet hosts clients’ infrastructures in cold-containment pods, which use the highly energy-efficient SmartAisle™ technology. Rather than companies having to hire a tech team to manage their own equipment in-house, TurnKey Internet’s technicians are able to manage client’s equipment in their state-of-the-art data center. Clients also receive the benefit of having around-the-clock tech support, 365-days a year. TurnKey Internet’s data center became Energy Star certified in early 2013 and was also approved to be part of the ReCharge New York program, created by New York’s Governor Cuomo. This program has allowed TurnKey Internet to receive clean hydroelectric energy, and has allowed the data center to run off 100% renewable energy.

Featured Client- August 2013   no comments

 

TKSpotlight_CotM_NickJubrey

Hello TurnKey friends! If you have been following our recent updates, you already know that things are getting pretty busy around here. We are expanding our data center and have put out some awesome products such as the TurnKey Desk 2.0 and our web-conferencing platform- Voxwire! Within a year we have been able to put forth newer, better and awesomer  (yes, awesomer) products and have also been able to expand due to our dedication and most importantly, you- the customers!

While keeping you ladies and gents happy is always our number one priority, we’ve decided to up our game with our appreciation to our clients.  We will now be posting a “Featured Client” article once a month. This will allow us to introduce you to our clients, show you what they do and how we have worked with them to help build their business! Without further ado, check out all the nice things our client, Nick, had to say about us!

 

My name is Nick. I am married to the most amazing woman, who is way more understanding than I ever expected.  We have 5 children from 2 to 18. I run a Web/WordPress Development Studio that specializes in small to medium-sized business site development.  I help companies develop their businesses through professional web presences. I make sure that their social media is properly targeting to the right audiences, develop email marketing plans and customization, create or re-create websites to meet the needs of clients’ users, including mobile and responsive designs

 

I rely on TurnKey to host my websites 24/7/365. TurnKey is essential to my company’s success. I design and develop for a living. I love what I do and I love that the folks at TurnKey do, too. I have been doing business with TurnKey for the past 3 years. I started out with shared hosting for a fantastic price until I outgrew the it and moved right into a dedicated server. I have never looked back. I have recommended Turnkey to several business associates and have heard nothing but awesome experiences.

 

My business has grown to what it is today because TurnKey has given me the tools that I need to be successful. The help desk is ready to go whether it’s 3 pm or 3 am and believe me, I have used it at both times. Because their responses are almost instant in most cases, they save me so much time so that I can focus my time where it needs to go- to my clients.

 

A month ago I had a technical difficulty with my server. The tech support guys had a lead to the problem and were working on it within an hour. I got several follow-ups checking in and even the Sales Manager contacted me to make sure I was satisfied; of course I was! Their green initiative is amazing. They have a zero carbon footprint and stellar customer service.

Nick and his wonderful family!

TurnKey Internet, Inc. releases their “TurnKey Desk 2.0” cloud-hosted desktop   no comments

Useturnkeylogo300dpi-ret (1)LATHAM, NEW YORK (August 20, 2013) – Sustainable IT solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today the rerelease of their cloud-hosted virtual desktop, the “TurnKey Desk 2.0.” With all new, easy-to-use features, the TurnKey Desk is now available on any smartphone, tablet, thin client, desktop PC or Mac. The platform is made easier to access, and can be preloaded with many more applications useful for individuals and businesses. Applications such as Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Suite or any customizable business applications needed, can be installed to the virtual desktop.

“By incorporating smartphones and tablets, the way a client can use the TurnKey Desk is almost limitless,” CEO, Adam Wills said. “Both start-up entrepreneurs and experienced CEO’s need a way to be able to easily work from their home, office, or while they are traveling. The TurnKey Desk allows this. Our virtual desktop provides security for any sized business to be confident that their information will always be safe and accessible in our SSAE-16 Type 2 certified data center.”

The TurnKey Desk can be used for companies where hundreds of employees are able to share files and documents with each other, be it down the hall, across the country or around the globe. Files can be accessed, shared and stored securely on the cloud to help make sharing documents easier and more efficient. The new platform allows for the option to have multiple images for various departments of an organization. These images contain the software applications specific for each department which can all be preset with permission levels for each user.

“Hosted Virtual Desktop market share is increasing every day. One of the reasons why, is the ability to replace aging office Desktop PC networks with Virtual Desktops accessed from thin clients,” Wills stated. “Thin clients cost far less than PC’s with less moving parts and need for maintenance. Since thin clients are only being used to access the virtual desktops, there are almost no IT related costs for your internal network once it is setup. Additionally, this improves your overall network security from our New York data center and decreases your overall costs.”

We are STILL at it! Our tech team has been working everyday around the clock to get our data center- phase two- complete. With the delivery  of a brand new pod, it sometimes feels like an IT Christmas around here. In fact, we feel like little kids when a new shipment arrives and we get to unload it… it’s like unwrapping new toys. Then we get to play with the toys,  put everything together, show our friends and hey! We didn’t forget the cookies!

Howdie do TurnKey lovers,

How long has it been? Feels like it’s been ages due to so many new and exciting things happening here at Turnkey Internet! Do you remember when I wrote you the post about progress? The main take away from the article was that progress is progress. Big or small, as long as you’re progressing forward, you will eventually reach your goals.

Well, this has been a very progressive few weeks here at Turnkey Internet. So much so, that every time I walk into the data center, I get a bit of a shocked or surprised look. Why you may ask? Well, we’ve begun receiving parts in for Pod 2. I’m sure you’ve heard about it in earlier posts, but this dream is getting closer to becoming a reality. I mean, it wasn’t too long ago that I remember putting up walls in our data center. I helped to program the switches for each core while watching our senior data center engineer wire all of the racks together. It sometimes feels that it was just last week, but then I think back on all of the progress we’ve made since then. Acquiring Kcnet and bringing on new staff. However, none of this even comes close to the feeling I receive when I walk into our data center and see the foundation of Pod 2 beginning to spring to life. It’s a very exciting, stressful and rewarding time around TurnKey right now. So much hard work from so many people is helping to make this dream of being the best damn data center in the Northeast a reality!

I just feel very fortunate and bless to work here at TurnKey Internet. Sure, there are times that I just want to scream at the top of my lungs (which I do) due to working on a bug/program/technical support matter for hours with very little progress, but once you achieve that goal, it’s very rewarding. It’s one of the best feelings in the world. Now to see that on a much larger scale with new parts being delivered for Pod 2 and vine videos being made on Pod 2, is just very satisfying. I can’t wait until all the parts get here and Pod 2 is fully online.

Inching one Pod closer to getting our data center maxed out with Pods full of servers.

Well, I just wanted to share that with you guys. To share the joy and excitement that I have for this wonderful company!

Until next time.

If you’ve been hanging around the TurnKey data center for the past week, you’d be sure to hear a lot of “It’s here! It’s here! It’s here!” Why? Because TurnKey Internet has been receiving shipments of brand new servers and most importantly, the pieces to build Pod 2!

WAAAAY faster than expected, our data center will expand by over 20% and within the next 30 days we expect Pod 2 to be up and running. We’re using the same high-tech, green, environmentally conscious technology but on a larger scale. Trust us when we say- This is still just the beginning!

Not following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram yet? Well we got you covered (but you should still go do that!). Check out some photos below and get caught up.

Faster is better, and the TurnKey High-Speed Stock Trader Desktop line is both   1 comment

Posted at May 16, 2013 @ 1:01pm Announcement,New Product/Service,News,Web hosting

fasterisbetterWe have news, everyone! A new product release! We just introduced our ultra-fast, super-advanced line of TurnKey Internet Virtual Private Servers, and we couldn’t be more excited. Really, this kind of thing makes us all go a little overboard in the zeal and enthusiasm department, but, hey—worse things could happen.

Have you seen those hilarious “It’s Not Complicated” AT&T commercials that have been all over the place recently? Now that DVR is a thing, I generally try to skip commercials—shh, don’t tell—but if I see that one of those commercials is on, it’s likely that I’ll stop fast-forwarding in the interest of a guaranteed laugh. For those of you who haven’t seen these commercials, check out AT&T’s YouTube Channel. There are quite a few of them, and they are all really well-done and funny.

Aside from entertainment value, our High-Speed Stock Trader Desktop VPS release is the reason I’m bringing these commercials to your attention. This one, in particular, really hits the nail on the head.

It really is a no-brainer. It’s not complicated. In the tech world, faster is better, period, and that is why our new High-Speed VPS’s are, simply, a better option.

TurnKey High-SpeedVPS’s take the virtual private server experience to a whole new level. Why? How? Let me rattle off a few reasons for you.

  • Our TurnKey High-Speed VPS’s contain solid state drive (SSD) disks, which have crazy-fast input/output speeds; much faster than traditional disks. Traditional disks are rotational, and SSD’s have no moving parts at all. They run solely on flash memory. No movement = faster. You got it? Good.
  • At the core of the TurnKey High-Speed VPS is Intel’s® new Xeon MP X7550 2 GHz Octa-Core CPU. This can increase speeds up to four times that of a Quad-Core.
  • The TurnKey High-Speed VPS allows for one hundred thousand IOPS (input/output per second) per drive, due to the combination of these SSD disks and the Octa-Core technology. Talk about TEAMWORK.
  • The TurnKey High-Speed VPS has the most innovative, highest-performing node configuration on the market There are multiple SSD disks and multiple Octa-Core CPU’s in each (node), configured in RAID-10, using high-performance RAID cards with significant on-board caching capabilities. This is a revolutionary alternative to the other VPS options out there. See? Like your mom’s car, cheetahs, and space ships, virtual private servers are better when they are faster, and it’s not complicated to see why. Check out our High-Speed VPS page. You’ll see what I mean.
