MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Aryaka (, the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization as-a-Service, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but also can generate the high margins solution providers require.

"We are proud to be honored as a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor," said Sonal Puri, vice president of Marketing, Sales and Alliances for Aryaka. "We are bringing together global resellers and distributors across various markets to enable enterprises to expand, grow their top line and focus on their core business."

Continued Puri, "This recognition reinforces the importance of new WAN optimization as-a-Service technology as a strategic shift for the traditional appliance channel. As the channel adapts itself to the recurring revenue model for as-a-service offerings with rich margins and new revenue sharing possibilities, the Aryaka Alliance Program™, Emergence, with its Fusion Partner model for global service providers, will continue to expand into new geographies beyond United States, India, Israel, Brazil and the United Kingdom."

"This collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering."
