ALBANY, N.Y. – Leading Data Center and Cloud Hosting Solutions provider TurnKey Internet, Inc. announced today that their flagship data center in Albany, New York has once again earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance. TurnKey Internet’s data center is the 2nd in the state of New York to achieve the highest environmental standards and earn the ENERGY STAR data center certification. TurnKey’s facility utilizes state-of-the-art technology and 100% renewable energy to provide the greenest cloud-based IT services for clients all over the world.

TurnKey Internet runs their ENERGY STAR certified data center 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, confirming the highest tier of reliability. The facility features low-voltage servers stored in ultra-efficient cold containment pods. These pods deliver precision spot-cooling to temperature-regulated server racks, which use thirty-three percent less energy than traditional data centers.


ENERGY STAR certified data centers and facilities are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of buildings nationwide, based on weather-normalized source energy use that takes into account occupancy, hours of operation, and other key metrics. ENERGY STAR is the only energy efficiency certification in the Unites States that is based on actual, verified energy performance.

“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.

NEW YORK, NY – Webair, a high-touch, agile Cloud and fully managed infrastructure service provider, today announces the availability of its Backups-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution for customers’ Microsoft Office 365 data. This solution addresses customers’ growing requirements for a single-provider solution to fully manage their business continuity and disaster recovery requirements, which span a range of platforms including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

As a growing number of enterprises migrate toward hybrid IT strategies, many SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365 have become critical to companies’ core operations. Webair’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 enhances the automatic data replication Microsoft provides across its data centers and helps ensure availability to users across Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint and OneDrive.


Webair’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 integrates the company’s Off-site Backups orchestration platform with Veeam’s Data Mover component to provide comprehensive backup services that enhance the flexibility and resiliency of critical data with the ability to access and restore information at any time. Webair’s CloudPanel provides customers with full transparency into their environments as well as multiple options for data recovery, including: restoring data to Office 365 or local / client-owned exchange servers and exporting raw data directly or to .PST files.

The solution allows customization of backup policies and data retention periods per job, user or group, as well as the ability to mix-and-match between Office 365, SharePoint and OneDrive. This unique capability enables users to meet specific SLA requirements as well as compliance regulations such as PCI, HIPAA and HI-TECH, which require immutable data, long-term retention capabilities and the ability to restore to specific points in time for both current and former employees. Webair’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 is also an effective ransomware and malware mitigation tool, providing the ability to restore modified and deleted data in the event of a cyberattack.

“Customers’ production infrastructures are shifting to include a multitude of platforms that span public and private cloud, colocation, on-premise environments, and SaaS. They are looking for a single pane of glass and a central point of accountability for their resilience and assurance across these hybrid infrastructures,” explains Sagi Brody, Chief Technology Officer, Webair. “Webair’s BaaS solution for Microsoft Office 365 provides an added layer of resiliency and security for customers by replicating data to a multitude of potential targets, including those ‘air-gapped’ from the internet as well as those supporting high levels of encryption and compliance. At Webair, it’s important that we provide comprehensive solutions for our customers’ IT needs, and we are very excited to introduce this new offering to our growing portfolio of services.”

As a high-touch, long-term IT partner, Webair takes full ownership of customers’ backups, providing one point of accountability and security for the management, monitoring and recovery of their data.

Jelastic, the Multi-Cloud DevOps PaaS, has added support for Go cloud hosting to its platform. When Jelastic was founded in 2011, it started as a true Java platform, but it evolved over the years to support PHP, Ruby, Node.js, Python and .NET programming languages. And now it has expanded the platform to support Go as well. In an interview with DHN, Jelastic CEO Ruslan Synytsky said that multilingual support enables developers to deploy, scale and manage a variety of applications in the cloud, regardless of the specific programming language or software stack. “Jelastic keeps advocating the “freedom of choice” idea, so widening up the list of supported languages is an obvious step for us,” mentioned Jelastic. The platform provides a number of engine versions for creating a Go environment. These versions can be easily changed through containers redeployment. Developers can now easily deploy the Go applications to Jelastic PaaS as Git projects. The apps are deployed via intuitive user…
