We love politics. We thought, why not help political candidates and advocacy groups step up their IT game by offering them temporary space in AIS Network’s secure cloud?
At AISN, we get a daily dose of politics because our East Coast office is in the nation’s capital. Some of the AISN team have worked on Capitol Hill and in the campaign trenches, so we understand political campaigns, public affairs and advocacy groups well.
In a Web 2.0 environment, running a political campaign means so much more than putting up a Web site for several months. Developing an IT strategy and executing it presents significant challenges that can bog down your campaign managers in technological logistics, minutiae and steep costs. Why not simplify it all in the cloud, so that you can get on with the business of winning your campaign?
How Do AISN Campaign CloudsTM Work?
Forget buying servers that you’ll only need for several months. Forget patching those servers routinely and wondering if your data is secure. Forget wondering if your servers will crash when your Web site traffic surges.
AISN’s Campaign Clouds allow you to stop worrying about your servers, so that you can focus on winning.
How do AISN’s Campaign Clouds work? They are simple, fast and easy. And, you don’t need a year-long contract with us either.
First, you decide if you want your campaign to run in AISN’s Public Cloud (least expensive), a private cloud or a hybrid model. Decide your capacity requirements for memory and storage and then provision a cloud built within AISN’s secure infrastructure. From there, you can launch sites, applications and resources in a virtual network that you define. You decide who has access to those too. As your needs expand and change, you can easily scale your cloud workloads.
So, spin your cloud up, run it through the election cycle period, and then shut it down. When the elections are over, archive any important files in AISN’s online storage. We’ll keep them safe and secure.
Campaign Clouds Simplify Campaign Management
Engaging voters without worrying about your IT infrastructure has never been so easy. Use the AISN Campaign Clouds model to:

Best of all, as long as you have an Internet connection and a device (laptop, tablet, mobile phone, etc.), you can access your applications, sites and data at any time, from anywhere you are in the field. That’s the power of AISN’s Campaign Clouds.
