SAN DIEGO, Calif., September 10, 2012 – AIS (American Internet Services), a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, cloud and connectivity services, today announced its AIS Phoenix “DR Vault” special, which is designed to accelerate the implementation of information technology (IT) disaster recovery plans while overcoming cost hurdles.  For a limited time, any new or existing client that signs up for one year of AIS Phoenix Disaster Recovery (DR) Service will receive one terabyte (1 TB) of premium NetApp® storage at no charge for one year (a $1,200 value).
