San Diego, CA – April 1st, 2010 – American Internet Services (AIS), a leading provider of data center and connectivity solutions, today announced that the telecommunication vendor Color Broadband Communications has expanded its colocation footprint into the AIS Phoenix data center. By having its first out-of-state solution, AIS gives Color Broadband additional leverage inside the untapped Phoenix market, and will strengthen the digital and communication service platforms offered by Color Broadband.
The AIS Phoenix Van Buren data center represents a major milestone for AIS as the first out-of-state colocation footprint in the history of the company. With disaster recovery becoming such a crucial component to the success of today’s corporations, having a geographically dispersed data center in Arizona had become a requirement to many AIS colocation clients. To ensure the highest levels of data center services for its clients, this AIS facility includes a 2N UPS configuration, N+1 cooling infrastructure and 24x7x365 on-site security/support personnel. Clients and preferred partners like Color Broadband can choose to leverage from the portfolio of managed AIS networking services, including global traffic management, performance routed IP and seamless private layer 2 transport out of Phoenix to any remote AIS San Diego or Los Angeles data center. In addition, the Phoenix data center is currently undergoing a SAS 70 Type II audit, which is being performed by independent firm NDB.
“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,” said Scheron Briones, Vice President of Engineering for Color Broadband. “We also needed additional colocation space, and we chose to continue growing with our trusted partner AIS by securing the additional footprint in Phoenix.”
