Web hosting provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. has purchased a former federal government building in Colonie, New York as the site for a new data center to expand its operations, the company said today. The Albany-based hosting provider and ISP said the 10,000 square foot facility is scheduled to go live in the third quarter of 2010.
“We are very excited to continue to expand here in New York," said Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet. "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,”
The building in Colonie is currently undergoing upgrades to increase power and cooling capacity. It has 12-inch thick concrete walls and will feature redundant electrical systems, multiple high-capacity fiber optic Internet connections, video surveillance, and state-of-the-art biometric security protocols. In addition to space to house 12,000 TurnKey Internet servers, the data center will also offer fully-managed colocation suites for businesses.
TurnKey Internet provides managed web hosting and web conferencing solutions for small and medium-sized businesses. Based in Albany, TurnKey and its subsidiary Voxwire Systems provides enterprise-class services to customers in over 30 countries via its multiple New York data centers.
