Meet the latest member of the TurnKey Team, here to help assist you 24 x 7!


My name is Kyle Sponable, I am a graduate of Hudson Valley Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science specializing in Systems Administration.  I have been working at TurnKey Internet for about a month now.

Technology has been my passion for many years be it computers, rockets, aircraft, even antique engines. When I am not at Turnkey, my days vary from reenacting the days of old steam at shows and fairs, to launching rockets, to building DIY projects in my garage. When I am not building something or another I like to hunt and fish, watch movies, and travel.

Today I would like to tell you about my experiences here and maybe give you a taste of what it is like to be a tech here at TurnKey Internet.

I have been on all sides of the IT field from programming, to field work, consulting, to now datacenter. While I have been fortunate to have worked with many great people, working with the TurnKey team has far been the most enjoyable experience I have had so far. The atmosphere here is great; we have a team here that actually works together to solve problems and you can easily bounce problems off one another.  I think one of my biggest un-expected moments the first week was the friday barbecue – where the company sets up in the back parking lot and grills up chicken, burgers, or kabobs and everyone takes a break together to just chat and share a meal.   Its not something I’ve seen at other jobs before that I have had.

My first job was working as an automation programmer for a local Industrial Automation company; I have seen many green solutions for heating, cooling, and power generation.  Here, we have a radical design to cool our servers and cut our usage of power drastically. The heart of our datacenter is composed of state of the art servers, and they run the same as in any other data center I have been in or worked around. The only difference being is the sheer amount of energy saved by this new approach. Every day I am excited to come to work to get a chance to learn more about how this unique “bleeding edge technology” operates.

In closing, I am really enjoying working here, I feel as if I am growing not only my career as an IT professional but personally as an individual. I remember when I came in for my interview, Dave, one of my interviewers asked what I was looking for. My answer was “Meaningful employment”, and I am happy to say I have found it. It is great to be a part of building my community while saving the environment, and working at TurnKey has allowed me to do all of that.
