American Internet Services (News - Alert) (AIS) provides enterprise-class data center, cloud and connectivity services. The company says it was chosen by DAR.fm due to AIS' direct peering relationship with several subscriber networks including Verizon and Comcast (News - Alert).
Due to its alliances with these subscriber networks, DAR.fm is able to provide a short and reliable network path between end-users and DAR.fm servers. The decision to host services in the AIS Lightwave facility in San Diego, California took several months and DAR.fm finally chose AIS after comparing it with two other local data center operators.
"Our digital audio recorder service, which works a lot like TiVo (News - Alert) for radio, enables users to record radio content, such as popular talk shows, and play them back on demand," said Michael Robertson, founder and CEO of DAR.fm, in a statement. "As you can imagine, sound quality and total reliability are 'must-haves' for a service like ours -- which is why we turned to AIS, where connectivity is king."
AIS ensures that streaming audio content travels quickly and reliably from DAR.fm servers to the service's end-users. The company leverages high performance routing equipment to further optimize traffic between client servers and end-users. A reliable, high-performance service by AIS promises low latency and fewer points of potential disruption.
"We at AIS are already working closely with the DAR.fm team to ensure that quality and reliability of the user experience is so great that demand for his services will grow exponentially -- doing for talk radio what Steve Jobs (News - Alert) did for the music business," added Tim Caulfield, CEO at AIS.
AIS helps companies get the most out of their information technology initiatives. The company was in news few months ago for releasing life sciences SaaS (News - Alert) platform with easy, affordable access to popular sequencing application.
