MILPITAS, CA, Aug 27 (Marketwire) --

Aryaka (www.aryaka.com), the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization
as-a-Service, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN
as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most
innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use,
but also can generate the high margins solution providers require.

"We are proud to be honored as a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor," said
Sonal Puri, vice president of Marketing, Sales and Alliances for Aryaka.
"We are bringing together global resellers and distributors across
various markets to enable enterprises to expand, grow their top line and
focus on their core business."

Continued Puri, "This recognition reinforces the importance of new WAN
optimization as-a-Service technology as a strategic shift for the
traditional appliance channel. As the channel adapts itself to the
recurring revenue model for as-a-service offerings with rich margins and
new revenue sharing possibilities, the Aryaka Alliance Program(TM),
Emergence, with its Fusion Partner model for global service providers,
will continue to expand into new geographies beyond United States, India,
Israel, Brazil and the United Kingdom."

A rapidly growing number of global enterprises are enjoying the choice,
flexibility and benefits from leveraging Aryaka's optimized, intelligent
network. Aryaka's WAN optimization as-a-Service solution is
"sophisticated simplicity," purpose-built for multi-tenancy and
eliminates the need for expensive and complex appliances as well as
long-haul MPLS connectivity or private links worldwide. With Aryaka,
globally distributed teams can communicate and collaborate across a
private MPLS-like network with the security, reliability, instant access
and end-to-end visibility and control required by the enterprise.

"This collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an
upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could
barely imagine," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel.
"With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up
the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and
networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a
tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule
the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past.
We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing
an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark
of any successful channel offering."

Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the
CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a
