What VBDC Clients Are Saying
“In March of 2012 our company was faced some serious challenges with our colocation Internet service provider. Because of it, I was introduced to the AIS team in their Phoenix facility.
They were tremendous both in pulling a contract and provisioning in just hours, and in assisting us move all of our servers and networking equipment over a weekend. They were extremely flexible and truly service oriented, not just the ones and zero’s over the wire — customer service was also included (something foreign to me from my previous service provider!).
In addition to that, their facility, although located in the same building, was much nicer, more secure and more organized than what I had experienced. Finally, although I was bursting to a lower cap than before, I saw a noticeable performance increase in bandwidth to and from the data center.
I highly recommend AIS to anyone looking to have customer service AND Internet / data center service while saving money.”
