Aryaka Improves Collaboration and Productivity for Worldwide Leader in Cloud Time Tracking Applications

Replicon Experiences 10X LAN Throughput and 300-500 Percent Improvement in Application Performance With Aryaka

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2013) -   Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service, today announced that Replicon, the worldwide leader in cloud time tracking applications with over 1.5 million users in 70 countries, has deployed Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service to improve global employee collaboration and productivity.

Replicon required reliable communication between its more than 360 employees spread across five locations worldwide. In addition to Replicon's headquarters in San Mateo, Calif., the company has two offices in Bangalore, India, one in Calgary and another in Toronto. Before deploying Aryaka, Replicon was using a virtual private network (VPN) to collaborate across distributed offices on core applications such as version control, file transfers and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). However, the link between certain offices was suffering from periodic latency, capacity and reliability issues that were impacting employee productivity. Replicon assessed numerous solutions to meet the company's high application performance needs and chose Aryaka for its superior performance, faster deployment and flexibility. With Aryaka, the company has experienced a 300 to 500 percent improvement in application performance.

Replicon is rapidly growing due to the increasing demand for the company's cloud time tracking applications and significant traction among global enterprise customers in particular. The company is expected to surpass more than 400 employees worldwide and expand into two new international markets before the end of 2013. As the company quickly scales and deploys new offices, Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service allows Replicon the flexibility to add or remove branches within minutes.

"Prior to deploying Aryaka, employee productivity while using public networks was hindered. In addition, applications such as CIFS, HTTP, HTTPS and RDP were often slow," said Suresh Kuppahally, senior vice president, engineering, operations and customer success at Replicon. "With Aryaka, we've realized 10 times the improvement in file transfer performance and faster SVN."

Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service solution packages a dedicated core network with built-in diversity and redundancy based on globally distributed Points of Presence (POPs), coupled with cloud-based technology. With Aryaka's multi-segment solution, POPs are located near end-user locations. This translates into far fewer congestion problems in "the middle mile" than Internet VPN solutions, and notably better application performance when congestion occurs at the first or last mile versus an appliance solution. Aryaka also offers a unique customer portal, MyAryaka, to deliver network-wide visibility for WAN connectivity, as well as application performance and usage across the network, providing centralized end-to-end monitoring.

Aryaka delivers the following benefits to Replicon:

  • 48 percent data reduction for File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  • 10X LAN throughput
  • 3-5X application performance improvement

"A fast-growing company like Replicon requires a solution that is scalable with immediate provisioning and a flexible subscription model based on business needs," said Ajit Gupta, president and CEO of Aryaka. "Before fully managed WAN optimization as-a-service, such a solution did not exist. We are excited to help mid-market companies like Replicon expand affordably and intelligently and build innovative products that fulfill market needs."
