San Diego

Why San Diego?

San Diego is home to a wide range of tech companies, from small startups to established internet and communication services enterprises to genetics and biotech firms developing cutting-edge life sciences research.

A business-friendly region at the center of a web of network paths, San Diego has become a popular site for more and more tech sector companies focusing on big data analytics, robotics, cybersecurity and software development. And because of the significant distance between the San Andreas fault line and San Diego, the city is not prone to earthquakes, which can disrupt operations and lead to costly downtime.

All AIS data centers offer fully-featured colocation services, cloud services with direct connectivity to AWS and Microsoft Azure and a private MPLS network with full interconnectivity between all AIS facilities, allowing for fast, secure, geo-redundant backup and recovery.
