Until recently, the company aiScaler was known as “aiCache”, producing a product called aiScaler. The company took over the name of it’s main product, in an effort to better reflect the scope of it’s operations.
aiScaler software increases the speed, stability and security of high volume web applications. Our software is classed as virtual infrastructure, integrating “Application Delivery Controllers” (ADC) with Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) and Front-End Optimization (FEO). A number of websites in the Alexa 1000 use aiScaler to manage and globally distribute their traffic. We utilize two distribution models, the cloud and dedicated licensing, allowing customers the flexibility of capital or operating expenses.
Our goal is to make the lives of operations teams easier by providing them with simple, reliable control of their environment. Our management is comprised of industry veterans who have spent the last 25 years in the trenches building web infrastructure. We have a deep understanding of the inner workings of website and network infrastructure and years of hands-on experience designing, building and maintaining distributed web applications. Having spent too many nights and weekends on emergency conference calls, we decided operations staff should have a life. aiScaler software was designed to allow operations staff to “get their life back” by providing tools that you can depend on to let you sleep at night.
We keep it simple and old school so any sysadmin feels right at home. We started with the most advanced throughput technology “epoll” and the most efficient Operating System “Linux”. We built modules, careful at each step to make sure the components play well together and report in a unified fashion, adhering to standards at every step.
Our main products include:

We are proud to say that, while aided by third party investment, management still holds a controlling interest in aiScaler.
