Sirkom Inc., in partnership with TurnKey Internet, owns and operates its own private data center located in New York's Tech Valley region. The center was designed and built as a State of the Art, hosted server environment that provides our clients with fast, secure and reliable performance, 24/7. State-of-the-art , green technologies approach was incorporated into its design and operation, which makes our data center among the most energy-efficient world-wide. Sirkom is committed to doing its part to protect the environment and are pleased to have been selected by the EPA as an ENERGY STAR® Partner.
Green-Friendly Data Center Design
Sirkom, Inc. in partnership with TurnKey Internet owns and operates its own data center which employs a variety of technologies to insure a green-friendly approach to all of our web and cloud-hosting services. Owning our own building and infrastructure affords us greater capacity to pursue optimal, environmentally-friendly designs in every area of our business. From low-voltage, green-friendly servers utilizing advanced Intel-based processors, to advanced on-site solar arrays, Sirkom is doing its part to better the environment to the highest extent possible
In-Row Precision Cooling
Sirkom's data center employs in-rack temperature sensors that regulate climate control via our Emerson precision spot-cooling systems. Precision-based cooling is automatically and intelligently distributed in the exact amount and location required to maintain optimal cooling and humidification levels for our computing equipment. Unlike traditional datacenters, our cooling systems intelligently distribute cooling in an efficient manner to minimize power consumption.
Redundant High Speed Network Connection
Providing the highest quality Internet connectivity and performance is our top priority. We have selected premium Tier-1 bandwidth providers, ensuring minimal latency and fast connections across the globe. Our data center has multiple fiber optic fiber carriers (both underground, and aerial, out of multiple diverse paths from our facility). We operate Dark Fiber to 2 carrier hotels in New York, offering connectivity in excess of 200 Gbps. Our Juniper routers provide our border network connectivity utilizing BGP4 for redundant and optimal route access to our Internet backbone carriers. All of these components provide the reliability and redundancy that is the foundation behind our 100% Network Uptime Guarantee.
Sirkom's data center was a former U.S. Government building that was purchased in 2010. It is made to U.S. Federal Government standards, with 1-foot thick concrete along the perimeter, plus additional reinforced walls and security enhancements. We have installed advanced security systems, and infrared based surveillance monitoring cameras. Employees all undergo background screening, and clients are not permitted within the facility except with photo ID and escorted by trained security personnel at all times.
Our advanced on-site roof-top solar array provides clean, pollution-free power. Every square inch of our roof is covered with solar panels, creating a massive clean energy-producing power plant. Our on-site solar power generation is one of the unique green aspects that makes Sirkom stand out from all other data centers. With clients from over 100 countries across the globe, Sirkom nternet utilizes the most advanced green technologies because we know it's not only the right thing to do, but our clients want it too!
Clean, Redundant Power
Clean, renewable power is transmitted straight from New York's Niagara Falls Hydro-Electric system which is used to supplement our solar energy production. The energy from The Falls is some of the cleanest available, and Sirkom is tapping into this dependable technology to further realize reduced carbon footprint for ourselves and our customers. Our on-site solar power generation, hydro-electric power, and green-friendly server technologies combine to make Sirkom stand out from all other data centers across the globe as a leader in Green cloud-hosted services. Sirkom protects it's customers with an on-site diesel backup generator.
Sirkom offers servers utilizing the Intel Atom processor, which has shown to reduce energy consumption by up to 70% over traditional CPU's. Intel is the market leader in designing eco-friendly, efficient microprocessors
Scalable, Elastic, Adaptive Architectures
Advanced system software can scale to reduce resource consumption on an as-needed basis, with cutting-edge virtualization technologies working in concert with the most advanced hardware architectures available.
Targeted Solutions for Green Minded Organizations
By owning our own data center, Sirkom can craft targeted, on-point environmental solutions for any organization, large or small. Specific systems designed to meet any budget can be built and scaled to exactly meet any client's energy demands.
Efficient Power Regulation & Solar Technology
Energy-efficient power monitoring and distribution systems employ a power-as-needed, computer-controlled architecture utilizing an advanced fleet of solar panels located on our building. Cold Containment maximizes the efficiency of cooling throughout our data center.
