Aryaka and OpSource Partner to Deliver Cloud-Based WAN Optimization for Enhanced Collaboration, Communication and Productivity

Aryaka Joins the OpSource Partner Ecosystem to Enable Global Enterprises to Leverage an Optimized Network in the Cloud

MILPITAS, CA and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Aryaka, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, and OpSource, Inc., the leader in enterprise cloud and managed hosting, today joined forces to deliver new Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization technology as a service and increase its adoption across all segments of the enterprise IT market. As part of the partnership, Aryaka becomes an OpSource Validated Cloud Solution provider.

IDC predicts that public cloud services spending will grow to $72.9 billion in 2015 (Worldwide and Regional Public IT Cloud Services 2011-2015 Forecast: IDC #228485). Cloud services are a critical component in a much larger transformation that IDC expects will drive IT industry growth for the next 25 years, reshaping the landscape and changing network architecture.

Aryaka's revolutionary technology provides an intelligent, high-performing network that enables enterprises to meet the expected soaring volume of data traffic. After years of complex, intrusive and costly appliances coupled with MPLS networks, Aryaka offers a new way to communicate and collaborate across enterprise locations, including Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider data centers. Aryaka's unique approach to WAN optimization and the OpSource Cloud platform enable the emerging enterprise to sync and share applications and data worldwide, seamlessly and in real-time.

Offering more than traditional cloud and hosting services, OpSource provides the integration, engineering, marketing and sales support required to launch and scale cloud-based solutions. In fact, OpSource was recently recognized as a top Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service vendor in an independent research study conducted by Info-Tech Research Group. The company was ranked among the "Champions" in a quadrant landscape and rated 'Best Value' against other vendors and products. Together, OpSource and Aryaka enable businesses to be more agile while controlling costs and reducing infrastructure support risks.

"OpSource and Aryaka share a vision of enhancing enterprise collaboration through simple and affordable cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration," said Ajit Gupta, Aryaka Founder, CEO and President. "We're thrilled to partner with a world-class provider like OpSource to unleash the power of the cloud. Enterprises can now simply and affordably leverage WAN optimization, a globally distributed intelligent network and end-to-end visibility in the cloud, especially across distributed locations and applications. Without the optimized network in the cloud, global cloud computing and storage solutions will find it difficult to succeed."

The OpSource Partner Ecosystem is designed to enable integrators, developers, ISVs, development platform companies and service providers to provide integrated solutions for their joint customers. This eases the burden of integration, speeds time to market and lowers the total cost of implementation and ownership for the customer. OpSource's Validated Cloud Solutions Program offers end-users with the assurance that our Partners' cloud-based application or platform operates on the OpSource Cloud. The solution has been tested and validated by OpSource and Aryaka with joint customers already deployed today.

Businesses of every size can benefit from cloud and managed hosting solutions that are secure, high performance and easy to integrate and control. IT administrators and developers typically take on the burden of integrating software, SaaS Platforms and software development platforms on their own.

"The OpSource Cloud enables Aryaka to focus on its unique real-time synchronization technology, delivering it to customers across multiple regions and data centers without having to worry about the underlying cloud platform," said Jon Beck, SVP of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, OpSource. "The combination of Aryaka and OpSource to connect applications and data across data centers enables customers to experience the true performance, convenience, visibility and economics of an optimized WAN."

The OpSource-powered Aryaka cloud solution is immediately available through OpSource and directly from Aryaka. Signing up is simple and customers can be up and running on a no-cost trial in minutes.
