San Diego colocation specialist American Internet Services (AIS) has expanded to the Phoenix market, opening a new data center in 120 East Van Buren, a data center hub operated by Digital Realty Trust. The new facility is the sixth data center for AIS, and the first outside its core southern California market. The push into Phoenix is part of a larger expansion into "several new key markets" over the next several years, the company said.
"We are extremely excited about AIS’s expansion into the Phoenix Data Center market," said Chris Orlando, Director of Strategic Channels for AIS. "Our Southern California clients are eager to take advantage of the geographic diversity offered by this new facility, while the entire AIS team looks forward to introducing Phoenix businesses to AIS’s quality of service. We are already seeing tremendous interest in our unique blend of colocation and client-centric support from the local Phoenix community."
