SAN DIEGO, Calif., September 18, 2012 – AIS (American Internet Services), a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, cloud and connectivity services, today announced Hold-Free Networks, a provider of social CRM solutions for Web and mobile platforms, has extended its datacenter footprint at AIS to accommodate rapid enterprise expansion.  AIS is providing a complete colocation solution in a private locking cabinet that includes managed services to oversee hardware applications, and a disaster recovery / business continuity solution bridging San Diego and Phoenix that also includes the AIS BusinessCloud1 (BC1) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for an extra layer of reliability.  In addition, AIS was able to meet Hold-Free’s strict deadline and budget.
“Besides our native hot standby resiliency, our enterprise customers value the geographic redundancy we provide with AIS data centers in San Diego and Phoenix,” said Lance Fried, CEO of Hold-Free Networks. “We over-engineer to handle peak traffic and have the ability to offer business continuity with redundant databases and load balancing between sites.

“Hold-Free Networks began working with us just over a year ago as part of the prestigious CommNexus Incubator Program where we initially provided them with colocation services and the flexibility to accommodate future growth,” said Tim Caulfield, chief executive officer at AIS.  “Their business has certainly taken off to the point where they are tapping a wide range of our service offerings which gives them a solid IT foundation.  We look forward to continuing our close working relationship with Hold-Free.”
