Private Transport to Maximize Your Performance
To maximize performance, security, and reliability, AIS manages its own redundant optical network, which allows real-time service delivery from multiple points on the Internet to any AIS facility.
The AIS Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) backbone provides low-latency, highly redundant Layer 3 VPN service between each facility. The MPLS links consist of dual, redundant 10Gbps connections between sites designed to self-heal in the event of a failure.
AIS has more than 70 Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) peering and backbone connections spread across multiple data centers providing more than 40Gbps of high-performance Internet connectivity.
SSAE 16 Compliance, Reliability, Performance
Compliance is a big differentiator when it comes to data center selection. Fortunately, AIS is able to provide support for almost any customer compliance requirement.
AIS is unique among Southwestern data centers in successfully completing the stringent SSAE 16 SOC 1, 2, and 3 audit examinations for each of our data facilities.
These rigorous audits were conducted by Moss Adams, one of the largest and most respected public accounting firms in the nation.
Periodic SSAE 16 SOC audits validate that AIS has the appropriate procedures and controls in place to safeguard client data, equipment, and connectivity.
ITIL v3 Service Management Best Practices
Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3 Service Management procedures drive the Change Management and Incident Management process at AIS.
ITIL is the de-facto IT service management global standard and is a comprehensive, non-proprietary, and publicly-available set of “best practices” guidelines.
