AWS Cloud


AIS is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect partner. The AIS Lightwave Data Center in Kearny Mesa is connected to One Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles CA (OWB) through our dedicated, secure, dark fiber network. The AIS private MPLS network allows clients at any of our data centers to take advantage of our AWS direct connection. Any business can connect to any AIS data center via metro ethernet to take advantage of our direct connection to AWS.

Direct connectivity means:

  • Directly Connect to AWS at OWB
  • Use your existing AWS account, manage resources the same way you always do
  • Dedicated, secure, private, dark fiber connection to AWS
  • Single- or dual-port connections for redundancy
  • Multi-carrier, multipath connectivity eliminates the risk of carrier failure
  • Multi-site connectivity through the AIS dark fiber network with up to 10G connection speeds or sub-1G speeds in increments of 50, 100, 200, 300, 400 or 500Mbps
  • Use Metro Ethernet to connect your office to any AIS data center and take advantage of our direct connection

We had reached a critical point with our IT infrastructure where we had to make a decision on expanding our current facility or partnering with an enterprise-level data center. We were impressed with the Lightwave facility, the policies and procedures AIS has in place, like its ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) service architecture, and its knowledgeable staff. We feel AIS has mapped out a solid solution that can expand to meet our future business needs. Chris Rousseau, SVP global information technologyCallaway Golf
