The scalable, AIS e-HA 2.0 includes Local, Global and Total solutions that can be fully or lightly managed and has a low cost of entry

SAN DIEGO, Calif., January 24, 2012 – American Internet Services (AIS), a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, cloud and connectivity services in the western United States, today announced it has expanded its family of Enterprise High Availability (e-HA) solutions. An addition to the AIS portfolio of Enterprise Managed Services (EMS), AIS e-HA 2.0 provides state-of-the-art Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity through the use of enterprise-grade infrastructure and by leveraging the company’s highly redundant, geographically diverse data centers.

AIS e-HA 2.0 consists of two basic services and several bundled services that utilize F5 global and local traffic managers for monitoring the state of the target servers and the location of the requesting client, and then directing traffic accordingly.

“Companies need the assurance of uptime along with the ability to fulfill their Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity requirements,” said Tim Caulfield, chief executive officer at AIS. “What we’ve done with AIS e-HA 2.0 is expanded the offering to provide companies with a number of options that are scalable while removing the need for a huge CAPEX investment and the burden of management by their in-house IT team.”

Highlights of AIS e-HA 2.0:

The basic components of AIS e-HA services include:

  • State-of-the-art local and global load balancing technology
  • High-performance private network between data centers
  • Expert engineering and support staff
  • Extensive transit and peering network
  • Fully monitored and managed service

AIS e-HA 2.0 consists of Local HA, Global HA, Local HA Bundle, Global HA Bundle and Total HA.

AIS Local HA provides server-level load balancing and failure detection, custom service monitoring through the use of enterprise-class hardware from F5 Networks.

AIS Global HA is operated from two geographically diverse data centers (AIS San Diego and AIS Phoenix). It provides DNS-level load balancing and failure detection through the use of enterprise-class hardware from F5 Networks.

AIS Total HA combines AIS Local HA and AIS Global HA services into an integrated hardware solution designed for quick recovery and business continuity. It leverages the AIS private optical network that runs between the San Diego and Phoenix data centers — providing high-performance, secure connectivity that enables real-time data replication and service delivery from multiple points on the Internet).

Monitoring is provided by the AIS Operation and Control Center (OCC), which is manned 24x7x365, ensuring that a team of highly skilled professionals is always available to provide personalized support and to quickly troubleshoot/fix any technical issues that are encountered. The AIS commitment to using a people based approach is a key differentiator.
