SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 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
