What Makes a Green Data Center Green?   no comments

Posted at May 1, 2018 @ 9:00am data center

Green Data Center and Cloud

It shouldn’t come as a surprise when I tell you that we humans haven’t been too kind to Mother Nature lately.  In fact, it seems that every time you open the newspaper or turn on your TV, there is a new fact or statistic telling us all how we are destroying our planet. And it’s not just you and me. It’s the sum of our everyday, first world amenities that may be slowly taking a toll on the rest of the plant. The airline and automobile industries, the pharmaceutical industry and businesses involved with fertilizers are just a few things we take for granted that could possibly be hurting us more than helping.

But while over 7 billion people roam the Earth, many of us, are slowly becoming more conscious on the effect we are having on our planet. Here at TurnKey Internet, we realize the effects data centers can have on the environment as well. Ever since we established our company, we’ve been taking large strides to make our data center as green as possible.

But how can you make a data center green? And what does it take? Well, let us tell you!

We’ll start from the outside.

If you drive up to our data center, you may not notice one of our coolest and biggest features that make us so green.  We have an advanced on-site solar array that provides clean, pollution-free power that covers our entire roof!

As we head inside, you probably wouldn’t notice something else that would be right in front of your face. The lights! You know those little energy saving lights you buy for your home? Well imagine if you could bring them to work with you, replace those awful florescent lights, and save money while using a lot less energy.

Next, we head into the data center. If you have been in a data center before, then you might notice something drastically different about ours. Well we call them “pods” or to be more specific, state-of-the-art Smart Aisle Cold Containment Pods. These awesome things use a fraction of the amount of energy typically used in a data center by using in-row precision spot cooling. This spot cooling works with in-rack temperature sensors that regulates the climate and keeps the servers at an optimal temperature.

Finally, another great feature at our data center is that we receive hydroelectric power for New York’s Niagara Falls, thanks to Governor Cuomo’s ReCharge New York program.

That’s right. Those beautiful falls are helping us become one of the most energy-efficient data centers around. Because here at TurnKey we mean business… and we mean green!

[Press Release] – TurnKey Internet, Inc. expands footprint to New York City   no comments

cranedayLATHAM, NEW YORK (September 18, 2013) – Sustainable IT solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today the completion of their fiber optic interconnection to New York City’s global communication hub, 60 Hudson. The addition of the new, direct fiber optic connection, allows TurnKey Internet to enhance their network redundancy and to further expand their high-speed connections worldwide. TurnKey Internet’s SSAE-16 certified data center, located in New York’s Tech Valley, gives the green IT solutions company increased connection to clients across the country and around the globe.

“By placing direct fiber-optic connectivity to 60 Hudson from our Latham, New York data center, we have expanded both our capacity and redundancy that we provide for our customers.” TurnKey Internet’s CEO, Adam Wills, said. “With the expansion of our data center earlier last month, we have had increased demands and requests for additional network capacity. Whether they are in the stock-trading industry, the ecommerce industry, or if they work with customers around the world, this expansion of our footprint will guarantee our clients the highest performance available.”

60 Hudson, located in lower Manhattan, New York, has been the center of telecommunications across the globe for over 80 years. Opened in the 1930’s, 60 Hudson has since become one of the primary Internet traffic hubs around the world and has expanded into a colocation center, now housing over 100 companies. TurnKey Internet’s new direct fiber optic access to this location allows for increased connectivity, speed and redundancy to amplify their global network presence.

[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.

TurnKey Internet reaches zero carbon footprint and 100% renewable power resources   no comments

img-hydro2-bigRemember when I told you that April is Earth Month at TurnKey Internet? Well, I’m back with some very exciting Earth Month news. Two different pieces of Earth Month news, actually–both green; both awesome.

First of all, we are now part of NYS Gov. Cuomo’s ReCharge New York program. Do you know what this means? DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?! This means that TurnKey Internet is now powered by 100% renewable resources! Being awarded this system means a lot to us, and it should mean a lot to you too, because being nice to the Earth should mean a lot to everybody. This hydroelectric power system draws energy directly from Niagara Falls, and extends the portion of our power that we were already drawing from renewable sources to a full 100%.

We were selected for the ReCharge New York installation in recognition of the jobs we are creating in New York State as TurnKey Internet expands. Here’s a fun fact: We have more than doubled our staff in the past two years. Isn’t that crazy? Crazy in the best way possible, of course.

Do you know what else this ReCharge New York system means for us? I told you there were two pieces of Earth Month news, didn’t I? Get ready, I saved the best for last… If you haven’t yet heard, or are impartial to reading titles and/or press releases, our Latham, NY data center now has a zero carbon footprint! This accomplishment is all but unheard of in our industry, so we’re more than a little proud and excited. We feel, and hope you agree, that this accomplishment really sets us apart from the other guys.

If you’re interested in a little more light reading, you can find the press release in our Company News section.

 

Pssst… Between you and me, we are  running an OUTRAGEOUS sale right now. If you’re interested–and I would recommend being interested–jump on Live Sales Chat. Our Sales Department will tell you what’s up. *cough–HUGE DISCOUNT–cough* …excuse me.

TurnKey Internet welcomes docSTAR to Latham data center   no comments

At TurnKey Internet, there is only one thing we like to do more than make new friends, and that one thing is tell everyone about it. That being said, we are so excited to announce that docSTAR, a document management software company and subsidiary of Astria Solutions Group, LLC., is moving into our Latham, NY data center!

docSTAR is located in Schenectady, NY, so we’re basically neighbors. This is one of the most noteworthy aspects of docSTAR’s move into the TurnKey  cloud. There has been quite a stir around here in regards to teaming-up with a fellow Capital Region small business, and we welcome them wholeheartedly to our facility. We like to think of it as a little ray of sunshine on the heels of Hurricane Sandy!

Greg Laird, docSTAR’s VP of Product Development commented, “The cloud powers our software and our business. Our growth required a bigger, faster, stronger cloud in order to continue to provide the highest level of service. The TurnKey data center exceeds all of our requirements, so our customers can continue to grow.”

We’re more than happy to help! To read the full press release, you can check it out here.
