Search Optics Picks AIS for Colocation, Structured Cabling, and NetApp Managed Storage

International automotive digital marketing solutions provider taps AIS for colocation, on-premise networking, and enterprise-class managed storage
SAN DIEGO (May 20, 2014) – AIS (American Internet Services), the Southwest’s leading provider of tailored data center and cloud service solutions, today announced that Search Optics, one of the nation’s leading automotive digital marketing solutions providers, has selected AIS as its IT infrastructure service partner in the Southwest. The suite of services delivered to Search Optics includes colocation, on-premise Ethernet cabling, and NetApp managed storage.
Search OpticsGoing far beyond traditional data center services, AIS provided a packaged solution that includes structured cabling tailored for Search Optics’ new office location in central San Diego. Unlike any other data center operator in southern California, AIS has the only manufacturer-certified connectivity cabling installers for projects ranging from custom racks, cages, and suites all the way up to full office, building, and campus deployments.
For data storage, AIS’ managed offering provides Search Optics easy access to NetApp enterprise-class storage with minimal management overhead. In this approach AIS owns and maintains the underlying infrastructure so that customers need only pay for the NetApp storage resources allocated to them – a smart, cost-effective model for many small and medium business customers.
“We are completely satisfied with the exemplary work AIS has done with our colocation, office wiring, and managed storage,” stated Troy Smith, President and Co-Founder of Search Optics. “We respect AIS’ consultative engagement process and appreciate how the solution meets our immediate needs while also providing scalability for future growth.”
“We’re delighted to have Search Optics join the AIS family, and I’m especially proud of the AIS Critical Infrastructure team for the great job they do on behalf of all AIS customers,” said Greg Rollet, CEO of AIS. “Because their work is often behind the scenes, it’s gratifying when clients such as Search Optics experience first-hand how professional and efficient the AIS Critical Infrastructure team really is.”
