(Gawkwire.com) TurnKey Internet, Inc. recently announced the purchase of a former federal government building in Colonie, New York as the site for a new datacenter, as it expands operations to meet growing demand. The facility will securely house TurnKey Internet’s infrastructure, increasing its capacity by 12,000 servers. Slated to go live for traffic in the 3rd quarter of 2010, the increased capacity will expand TurnKey Internet’s operations in New York and will bring new business to the region.
The acquisition represents a multi-million dollar investment for the company that has seen tremendous growth from businesses looking to control costs for web-enabled applications and IT services.
“We are very excited to continue to expand here in New York. New York has been a great location, providing access to the best qualified staff, reliable green-friendly power sources and high-speed fiber optic Internet connectivity. It has provided us with the ideal centralized geographic location to meet the demands of our clients across the globe,” said Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet and 15+-year resident of New York’s Capital Region.
Currently undergoing upgrades to increase power and cooling capacity, the new building will protect TurnKey Internet’s infrastructure behind 1-foot-thick concrete walls, built to federal government specifications. The 10,000+ square foot facility will feature redundant, green-friendly electrical systems, multiple high-capacity fiber optic Internet connections, video surveillance, and state-of-the-art biometric security protocols. In addition to the 12,000 new TurnKey Internet servers, the datacenter will also include fully-managed colocation suites for businesses looking for secure, reliable, enterprise-class connectivity for their own servers and equipment.
With the acquisition of the new building and multiple new hires in the past 60 days, TurnKey Internet is starting 2010 with record growth. The new tier 1 datacenter will be consistent with TurnKey Internet’s industry-leading standards for power availability, environmental control, high-performance web application hosting and 100% network uptime.
