CaliHop Selects American Internet Services (AIS) Enterprise-Class Data Center to Accommodate Its Service Expansion

AIS Network Performance, Redundancy, and Long History of Operation in San Diego Identified as Primary Reasons

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2012) - American Internet Services (AIS), a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, cloud and connectivity services in the western United States, today announced CaliHop (formerly DreamVPS), a privately-owned dedicated and virtual server hosting provider, has selected AIS as the cornerstone for the launch of its line of high-performance dedicated servers. After evaluating several different data centers, CaliHop chose AIS for its network performance, redundancy, and long history of operation in San Diego.

"AIS provided the highest quality network in the area and colocation space with more than enough power to meet our requirements," said Joseph Manis, owner CaliHop. "I have used AIS services in some form or shape over the last 15 years, and not once have I ever regretted that!"

CaliHop was looking to expand its services from virtual servers into the dedicated server hosting market. They needed a data center in Southern California that could provide an exceptional bandwidth selection to launch its line of high-performance dedicated servers.

"AIS is proud of the role it plays in helping companies like CaliHop achieve continued success," said Tim Caulfield, chief executive officer at AIS. "We make it a point of being very hands-on with our clients -- taking a very personal approach which is clearly appreciated."

The move into the AIS Lightwave data center has already taken place and CaliHop is accepting orders for its new line of business.
