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!
