Today’s enterprise CIO faces challenges that stem from the nature of the distributed enterprise with its rising global workforce and remote location costs. New applications on the wide area network (WAN) for business, VoIP, streaming media and large files need to be efficiently managed. Modern enterprises need a way to manage all this and more – reliable and ample bandwidth, access to cloud services, and data protection – in a timely, low-cost, low-impact way. They must also streamline future growth initiatives in a cost-efficient and non-disruptive manner.
Aryaka is the world’s first cloud-based WAN optimization and application delivery solution that provides one platform for all of these needs, lowering costs while improving end user productivity and enabling extended market reach on demand. Aryaka’s unique web-based portal provides end-to-end visibility of application and network performance across all locations.
Performance Benefits – the chart shown on page 14 of the attached presentation provides a summary of the application, network and end-user benefits.
Cost benefits - Aryaka customers save time, resources and money. Aryaka eliminates the need for expensive MPLS links (costing $10,000 a month across two locations and a three to four month waiting time) and is an economic alternative to installing, maintaining and updating expensive CAPEX hardware and software licenses at each location. Cost savings can represent hundreds of thousands of dollars annually for the emerging enterprise.
“In our search for a WAN optimization solution, Riverbed repeatedly came up as a recommended product but in digging deeper we discovered that an MPLS investment was required, further adding to our costs. We talked to AT&T in September about getting a dedicated link, didn’t get a complete quote until December and then learned the order would take an additional 100 days to complete. We went with Aryaka’s cloud-based solution for security, connectivity and speed, and were up in running in a matter of weeks.”
–Bruce Difley, IT Director, Hirsch Bedner Associates
“Before deploying the Aryaka solution, our WAN performance was so slow that it was unusable – latency was a killer. Aryaka provides us LAN-like performance on our WAN so that our people can actively use Email, SharePoint and backups across the network, improving our business processes and keeping our distributed locations synchronized in real-time.”
–Sarvesh Mahesh, CEO, Tavant Technologies
“The Aryaka solution enabled us to do real-time data replication, and our designers didn’t have to wait around anymore to get their jobs done. Our engineers can now download large files and also make change requests in less than five minutes. And most importantly, I am no longer at odds with having to face the high costs of buying further fixed capacity MPLS links.”
–Joe Letizia, Global Director of Information Technology, Armstrong International
`We did look at vendors like Cisco and Riverbed…the problem with those solutions were—high upfront costs, continued maintenance for patches and for upgrading, and requirement of skilled personnel at all 3 sites. Aryaka`s model is very simple, the deployment time is very short and is managed by Aryaka`s support team and very little bandwidth is required by my team.”
–Shyam Gokalgandhi, IT Director, Magnum Semiconductor
“The Aryaka solution enables me to estimate and determine my capacity for better planning. We saw an immediate increase in the performance of our ERP applications and data replication. What we like best is the visibility of the MyAryaka portal that shows us much more granular detail than what our MPLS service provider was delivering – seeing is believing.”
–Simon Ku, Manager of Information Technology, North America, Raritan
“Increased application performance is the main reason we chose the Aryaka solution. Once we deployed it we noticed immediate results, including significant bandwidth and cost savings. Aryaka has enabled our employees to be more productive, and that is a huge benefit for any organization.”
