Cloud hosting solutions provider TurnKey Internet has expanded its “green” flagship data center in New York’s Tech Valley Region. The expansion would increase total capacity of the New York datacenter by 50%.
Less than six months after announcing the opening of their new California data center, TurnKey Internet’s latest expansion to its flagship New York data center continues to strengthen the company’s enterprise-grade cloud based infrastructure, which currently provides solutions to clients in over 150 countries.
The data center expansion would not only increase total capacity, but also include upgrades to the data center’s cooling systems, FM200 fire suppression and detection systems, as well as additional network redundancy and capacity.
Constructed in 2012, TurnKey Internet’s New York data center leverages “state-of-the-art” green technologies, such as cold-containment pods, smart-aisle cooling technology, and high voltage efficient power delivery systems. The facility maintains a zero carbon emission foot print by sourcing hydroelectric power through Governor Cuomo’s ‘ReCharge NY’ Program and using its advanced on-site solar power array.
“The expansion of our New York Datacenter matches our vision of providing our customers access to best in class enterprise-grade IT resources on a ‘turnkey’ platform,” said Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet. “Demand only is increasing for colocation and hybrid cloud solutions. The expansion of our datacenter and infrastructure allows us to continue to deliver the best Cloud Services with increased redundancy and more value to our existing and future clients.”
TurnKey Internet’s New York data center is among the most energy-efficient data centers worldwide. In 2013, the facility was the 2nd in New York to be designated as an ENERGY STAR certified data center by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In 2013 the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation awarded TurnKey Internet an Environmental Excellence Award for the cutting-edge green design and operation of the 100% non-fossil fuel consuming sustainable data center.
