Aryaka Raises the Bar with Industry’s First Application Delivery as-a-Service


Aryaka Raises the Bar with Industry’s First Application Delivery as-a-Service Oct 2012

Aryaka Enables Enterprises to Accelerate Application Delivery Both Inside and Outside the Firewall for Globally Distributed Users

MILPITAS, Calif. – Oct. 23, 2011 —Aryaka, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, today announced the availability of its Application Delivery as-a-Service™, the latest addition to its expanding portfolio to deliver application acceleration and optimized connectivity for all applications both inside and outside the enterprise firewall. Aryaka’s purpose-built for the Cloud, application delivery solution enables distributed business users – home office workers, mobile users, customers and partners – to have optimized, consistent access to enterprise applications and Cloud resources from anywhere in the world.

Aryaka’s Application Delivery as-a-Service accelerates Internet application response times by connecting users to the closest Aryaka POP so they can quickly access applications and critical data. Aryaka’s secure private network of global Points of Presence (POPs) removes the application performance limitations associated with traditional solutions that have been a combination of wide area network (WAN) optimization appliances, network services such as MPLS and content (or application) delivery networks (ADNs and CDNs). The solution optimizes user-to-application requests by redirecting requests to the closest Aryaka POP.  Applications perform consistently, securely and reliably every time for a better user experience.

“Today’s IT managers are looking for a simpler way to make all their applications run at speeds just like their Local Area Networks (LAN) in a reliable and secure environment with full visibility and control over their traffic,” said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka. “Aryaka’s Application Delivery as-a-Service enables enterprises to leverage the cloud and extend the reach of business applications to users outside the bounds of the traditional corporate network. This new solution is our commitment to provide what customers want – more choices in the market for all services in a simple utility model and with competitive pricing.”

The need for high performing applications and fast access to critical information has never been so important, according to a survey comprising research for the 2012 Application & Service Delivery Handbook by Dr. Jim Metzler, principal analyst with Ashton, Metzler & Associates. “If a business-critical application is performing poorly, it also has a very significant impact on the organization,” according to Dr. Metzler’s research. The most worrisome results include organizations losing revenue and customers.

With Aryaka, enterprises get the most out of application performance by leveraging the economics of the public Cloud (SaaS) model with the security of a private network. Aryaka improves the Internet speeds of enterprise applications without making changes to the applications. The service reduces the delay that Internet traffic suffers when it crosses long distances. Faster access to applications enables distributed employees to perform their daily work more quickly and be more productive to make the organization more competitive.

Aryaka’s biggest differentiator over traditional solutions is the private Aryaka network of globally distributed POPs connected with a multiple dedicated links and our patent-pending multi-segment architecture. Application behavior, routing and capacity on the private network is always guaranteed, and there is never congestion. Advanced functionality like application proxies, data-deduplication, compression, caching and TCP optimization from its WAN Optimization as-a-Service solution is also included, which makes it the industry’s first solution of its kind.  

Enterprises leverage Aryaka’s Application as-a-Service to automatically direct application traffic to one of Aryaka’s closest POPs and onramp to the Aryaka private, global network. Aryaka’s network is strategically built to ensure less than 20-millisecond latency to over 90 percent of the world’s business users.

Aryaka’s expanded portfolio of services now includes:

·        WAN Optimization as-a-Service for global connectivity, an optimized Wide Area Network (WAN) with fast and consistent application performance behind the enterprise firewall and accelerated access to Cloud resources.

·        Network as-a-Service for global connectivity, a TCP-optimized MPLS-like network and accelerated access to Cloud services.

·        Application Delivery as-a-Service for global connectivity, a private optimized network, fast delivery of any inside or outside the firewall application or Cloud services for distributed users.
