Tech Center – San Diego Tech Center

AIS San Diego Tech Center (SDTC) is a 19,000 square-foot facility located in the Sorrento Valley area. SDTC is built to the most rigorous of standards, offering N+1 redundancy on all data center systems complete with redundant power, cooling, engine generators and multiple fiber vaults with diverse entry. SDTC maintains a minimum of 24 hour run-time fuel capacity on-site with multiple fuel providers with 4-hour or better response time.

SDTC offers colocation and access to cloud services over AIS private MPLS network.


San Diego Tech Center offers fully featured colocation services capable of serving clients of all sizes from large custom cages to dedicated full or partial locking cabinets. Clients can select from our portfolio of managed network connectivity services including performance-routed IP and seamless Layer 3 VPN transport to any other AIS data center.

Private Network

All AIS data centers are connected by a private MPLS network, allowing clients in any of the AIS facilities to access cloud services or direct connections to AWS or Microsoft Azure. The AIS network allows clients to take advantage of fast, secure, geo-redundant backup and recovery from other AIS data centers such as Van Buren in Phoenix.


San Diego Tech Center is located in the Sorrento Valley area of San Diego. Easily accessible from I-5 and I-805, SDTC is conveniently located in the high tech, biotech and IT cluster of Sorrento Valley, La Jolla and northern San Diego. And not being located on the San Andreas fault, San Diego is not prone to the seismic activity affecting Los Angeles and San Francisco, making the city a relatively safe location for a data center. The California Department of Transportation recently completed improvements to all overpasses to make sure they can withstand a 7.0 earthquake, making the city infrastructure more resilient in the event of a seismic incident.

All AIS Data Centers provide:

Redundant Optical Network

N+1 is provided at Tech Center and Fiber Alley data centers. Custom cooling and Cold Aisle Containment is available for loads greater than 15kW.


All AIS data centers utilize ITIL v3 service architecture and pass periodic SSAE 18, Type 2, SOC 1, 2, and 3 audits.
