Read What Customers and Other Experts Have to Say
By housing additional infrastructure in the AIS Phoenix data center, many of our fast-growing customers demands for services that require multiple facilities can finally be answered. We also needed additional colocation space, and we chose to continue growing with our trusted partner AIS by securing the additional footprint in Phoenix.
Infinitely Virtual and Altay Corp
As Infinitely Virtual continues to grow, we make massive investments into our hosting infrastructure. The addition of our secondary facility into the AIS Lightwave Data Center, with its multi-gigabit connectivity to its space inside the Los Angeles One Wilshire Data Center, will enable us to accommodate our intense growth and accelerate the release of new products and services.
We are delighted to be working inside the AIS data center to provide full service managed storage to enterprise clients. We understand the importance of Phoenix in the disaster recovery market and have the processes, systems and culture in place to become a seamless extension of the IT services team for any sized organization.
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.
The company had grown to the point where we began to look for a new headquarters. At the same time, we were seriously considering whether to continue owning our own data center or to partner with a leading industry partner and further strengthen our already best-in-class hosting services. AIS proposed an ideal solution for us right here in our back yard with the connectivity, flexible power and security we needed, plus we’d be able to maintain the control of the data center as though it were in-house.
AIS provided the highest quality network in the area and colocation space with more than enough power to meet our requirements. I have used AIS services in some form or shape over the last 15 years, and not once have I ever regretted that!
This is an important milestone for AIS – affirming that our enterprise-class data centers have the appropriate internal controls in place for assuring the highest level of standards for compliance, security and availability. We want our clients to feel comfortable that we are committed to taking the necessary steps to assure their peace-of-mind as they seek us out for colocation, connectivity, managed services and now, our full-featured cloud service. Our SOC 2 examination clearly sets us apart from our San Diego competition.
Since day one, we’ve been impressed with the Lightwave facility along with the quality of expertise and support we received from AIS. As our business continues to grow, it is comforting to know we have an infrastructure and managed services provider who we can work with as a partner to ensure we have the unsurpassed uptime, fast network and comprehensive levels of services we need to support our expanding customer base.
Completing the Service Organization Controls (SOC) process which provides verification by a third party of the validity and functionality of our control activities and processes, is an important step for AIS. Now that we have expanded our portfolio to include AIS BusinessCloud1, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), we are finding that more companies are seeking this additional level of compliance.

We toured many facilities during our evaluation process and the AIS Lightwave Data Center was quite impressive. And with this being set up as the focal point of our critical communications infrastructure, we really wanted an experienced provider with a solid reputation. AIS hit high marks on all the things that mattered to us.
