LATHAM, N.Y. – Leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that their flagship Data Center in New York’s Tech Valley has received SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 with HITRUST CSF certification. After a thorough audit, TurnKey Internet was deemed compliant with the regulations required to attain certification. The examination was conducted by SOC audit specialists The Moore Group CPA, LLC.

SSAE 18, previously known as SSAE 16 or SAS 70, contains the rules for a CPA firm conducting an attestation of a service organization’s internal controls and issuing a System and Organization Controls (SOC) report. The SOC certification audit investigates several core areas: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. It verifies that TurnKey Internet’s Data Center is of the utmost security, integrity, and reliability. It confirms that TurnKey Internet has procedures and safety precautions of the highest certification standard in place to ensure the security of the facility and its clients’ data within.


In addition to the SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 certifications, TurnKey also earned HITRUST CSF certification. This certification demonstrates TurnKey’s compliance with U.S. federal and state government HIPAA regulations, standards and frameworks, regarding the security and protection of electronic personal healthcare information. This achievement places TurnKey Internet in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned HITRUST CSF certification and maintain a HIPAA compliant data center.

“Attaining the SSAE 18 SOC 1 & SOC 2 with HITRUST CSF certification was a significant goal and milestone for us,” remarked Adam Wills, President and CEO of TurnKey Internet. “We pride ourselves on our unparalleled reliability, security, quality of service, and—most importantly—customer satisfaction. This certification not only proves that we are excelling in those areas, but also assures our new and existing clients that they are receiving the best possible service and data protection available.”

EDINA, MINN. – Equus Compute Solutions announces the release of its WHITEBOX OPEN™ R1660 and R1660 NVMe servers, part of the Equus portfolio of custom cost-optimized open-hardware server and storage platforms. Incorporating dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPUs and new open-hardware features, the R1660 servers are compact high-performance compute solutions for demanding applications such as content delivery, cloud services, business applications, and virtualization. These servers are ideal for content delivery network providers (CDNs), cloud services providers (CSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and enterprise IT.

The 1U 10 Bay R1660 server features 10 2.5” hot-swap HDD/SDD bays and 24 DIMMs for up to 3TB of memory. The R1660 also features OCP slots that accommodate multi-vendor cards including 1, 10, 40, 50, 100 Gbps Ethernet NICs, and NVMe/SSD storage modules. The R1660 servers, like all of the WHITEBOX OPEN server platforms, can be customized to exact end-user specifications.


The R1660 NVMe version of this server supports six 3.5”/2.5” hot-swap HDD bays and four NVMe bays for customer applications that demand higher storage performance.

The R1660 and R1660 NVMe support all the WHITEBOX OPEN features, including OpenBMC system management, which is the open-source implementation of the Baseboard Management Controller firmware stack that works across heterogeneous systems and can free companies from proprietary system management vendor lock-in. The servers also support LinuxBoot to customize the server BIOS for flexibility, improve security, and create a lightning-fast boot experience. Each server’s OCP networking enables it to utilize NC-SI (network controller sideband interface) in-band network management communication, removing the need for a separate IPMI 1GbE management port and the associated dedicated network that in turn generates cost savings, frees rack space, and reduces cabling complexity.

The R1660 and R1660 NVMe servers are shipping now. Technical details on all the WHITEBOX OPEN servers are available here: https://www.equuscs.com/servers/whitebox-open/ .
