American Internet Services Announces Strategic Relationship with Business Technology Strategies

September 15, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
San Diego, California, September 15, 2008 - American Internet Services (AIS), the largest independent colocation provider in Southern California, proudly and formally announces a strategic partnership with Business Technology Strategies (BTS), a Florida-based business offering consulting and service provider solutions for business continuity, disaster recovery, and managed services.

Beginning immediately, AIS and BTS will recommend services across their corporate client bases. This strategic partnership primarily establishes a direct channel for AIS corporate customers to engage a provider for complete business resiliency analysis, assessment, and services, while BTS clients will benefit from multiple available colocation facilities effectively integrated into business plans and budgeting expectations. Ultimately, this new relationship provides a single source venue for contingency and disaster planning combined with resilient data center services.

AIS, established since 1994 with more than 105,000 square feet of Tier 4 data center space, focuses on security, uptime, and network dependability. "In today's mission critical business environment where 100% uptime is imperative, an organization's information infrastructure cannot experience any type of downtime, or revenue and productivity are lost," said Richard Sears, CTO at AIS. "Outsourcing core systems to our data centers is key to avoiding downtime. However, it is equally important to identify all business risks to an organization, not just IT-related risks, and incorporate mitigation strategies recommended by experienced professionals and additional outsourced managed services."

Identifying all potential risks within a business infrastructure a daunting task is the driving force of BTS. "Many organizations only realize the significant demands and required logistics of resuming normal business operations during or after an unforeseen outage or disaster occurs," said Michael K. Connolly, president and co-founder of BTS. "In the complex business environments that exist today, the need for detailed analysis and preplanning for a corporation's existing processes, risks, and strategies for mitigation is paramount in selecting and implementing not only the appropriate services, but the best service providers. Many times, companies neglect the importance of planning to recover not only mission-critical systems, applications, and data, but the business functionality as a whole."

By collaborating with AIS and its commitment to customer care with 100% guaranteed uptime, performance-routed bandwidth, and superior customer service models, BTS integrates a recognized, reliable service provider into its risk and impact mitigation recommendations, which, as Connolly points out, "is paramount to avoiding downtime."

BTS and AIS will highlight their united presence at BTS's exhibition at the first AIS Tech Expo later this week, on Sept. 18. The Tech Expo at AIS's Lightwave Data Center in San Diego is a venue for businesses, consultants, and technology experts to connect over emerging technology and business issues.
