Data center and cloud hosting solutions provider, TurnKey Internet, has once again earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for its flagship data center in Albany, New York.
TurnKey Internet’s data center would be the 2nd in the state of New York to achieve the highest environmental standards and earn the ENERGY STAR data center certification. TurnKey’s data center utilizes “state-of-the-art” technology and 100% renewable energy to provide the greenest cloud-based IT services for clients worldwide.
Rooftop Solar Panels
TurnKey Internet runs its ENERGY STAR certified data center in New York with 100% renewable hydro and solar power. It is equipped with rooftop solar panels, and uses hydro-power to further supplement their renewable energy initiatives as beneficiaries of Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Recharge New York’ power program.
The data center is SSAE 18 SOC 2 certified while featuring low-voltage servers stored in “ultra-efficient” cold containment pods. These pods deliver precision spot-cooling to temperature-regulated server racks.
“We’re honored to once again earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance at our Albany, New York data center and appreciate the efforts of everyone who has been involved in its efficient operation,” said Adam Wills, CEO of TurnKey Internet. “TurnKey’s green data center was built with sustainability in mind, and our commitment only evolves as the world-wide demand for energy consumption continues to multiply.” He continued to say, “Saving energy is just one of the ways we show our community we care, and that we’re committed to doing our part to protect the environment and public health, both today and for future generations.”
In 2013, The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation awarded TurnKey Internet the Environmental Excellence Award for innovative facility design and outstanding commitment to environmental sustainability, social responsibility and economic viability.
