Aryaka Extends Its Cloud to Provide WAN Optimization-as-a-Service to 90 Percent of the World

Dedicated Global Network of Points of Presence (POPs) for Cloud-Based WAN Optimization Brings Together the Global Workforce, Connecting Enterprise Locations Worldwide

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - Aryaka (, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, today announced that it has expanded its network points of presence globally, enabling a highly optimized architecture for WAN optimization that ensures less than 20-millisecond latency of network traffic for over 90 percent of the world's business users.

With the expansion of its local points of presence, Aryaka continues its drive to "place the network near the customer." Network latency, long deemed the "Achilles Heel" of organizations with centralized data centers, is now a non-issue as the Aryaka Software-as-a-Service model breaks new ground by enabling businesses to place vital corporate data, software resources and business applications within close proximity of users. While democratizing information access, the Aryaka cloud-based WAN Optimization solution provides application acceleration including compression, deduplication and application-level proxies, "elastic bandwidth" to meet sudden demand, and end-to-end visibility into locations, applications and their performance. By nearly eliminating network latency and delivering bandwidth commensurate with the organization's needs, Aryaka resolves communication and collaboration challenges of complex global organizations connecting distributed enterprise locations.

"Aryaka has demonstrated that WAN optimization can deliver value to businesses of all sizes, and not just to the well-heeled enterprise," said Bojan Simic of TRAC Research. "With today's announcement, the company is bringing the network closer to the business user and enabling more organizations to reap the benefits of WAN optimization without the requirement for boxes or huge upfront costs and long deployment times."

Aryaka is adding new global customers who have been seeking a more practical alternative to the traditional WAN optimization model, which requires complex network equipment at every company location and an expensive and frustratingly complex communications protocol, MPLS, across the network. By re-architecting WAN optimization, eliminating the need for on-premise equipment and providing users -- regardless of their location -- under-20-millisecond latencies in accessing network resources, Aryaka enables all businesses to share in the promise of a faster global network.

Aryaka's SaaS model also eliminates the business burdens of troubleshooting the network and upgrading equipment, the prohibitive losses incurred by network downtime, and the challenges of decommissioning and replacing equipment that has reached end of life.

"Our vision is to make the corporate WAN an asset to business users across the globe," said Ajit Gupta, founder and CEO of Aryaka. "Businesses should not be penalized for their size, growth, geographical expansion, or decentralization. As we continue to expand our points of presence, we remain dedicated to delivering superior WAN and application performance to businesses, wherever they go and however they grow."

The Aryaka cloud-based service is a smarter alternative to the traditional WAN and also provides the underlying, enterprise-class dedicated bandwidth and visibility through the MyAryaka portal. With regional points of presence established according to network quality, customer proximity, geographical diversity, and location of peering points, the topology inherently offers scalability, reliability, high performance, network availability, and redundancy. The topology further enables Aryaka to provide customizable quality of service (QoS), backed up by guaranteed service level agreements.
