Oxford Economics Improves Web Application Performance by up to 90% With Aryaka

Global Forecasting and Modelling Leader Chooses Aryaka's CDN to Improve Global Experience

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - Aryaka®, the leading 'As-A-Service' provider of WAN Optimization, Network, Application Delivery and Cloud Networks, today announced that Oxford Economics, the world leader in global forecasting and quantitative analysis, selected Aryaka's CDN for Web Application Delivery to improve application response time for its globally distributed user base.

Headquartered in Oxford, England, Oxford Economics has offices across the globe in London, New York, Singapore, Belfast, Chicago, Paris, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Sydney. In addition to 150 full-time employees, the company has a contributor network of over 500 economists, analysts and journalists around the world, many of whom continuously upload content to the website for consumption by Oxford Economics' client base of more than 850 international corporate and government organizations.

Before deploying Aryaka, staff uploading content and clients accessing services from different parts of the world didn't enjoy uniformly high speeds across all regions. In some regions, like Asia Pacific, performance could be significantly bad. To address poor and variable network performance, Oxford Economics investigated a number of options including traditional Content Delivery Network (CDN) solutions which were dismissed as a major portion of their content is dynamic.

"There was a large disparity in the speed of delivery of our website and data services to customers, particularly in places far away from our UK data centers like Asia Pacific and Western USA. Some of our complex subscription pages were taking anywhere between 10 - 20 seconds to load despite having normal server CPU load and disk I/O. We had to improve network performance for users across the globe to keep pace with our expected subscription business growth rate and to provide the best possible user experience in our web and mobile service delivery channels," said Dr. Arvindra Sehmi, CIO at Oxford Economics.

Aryaka's CDN for Web Application Delivery provides application acceleration over an intelligent 'last mile', built on a private core network backbone unlike traditional CDN solutions that route traffic over the public Internet. The solution, built for enterprises, combines private connectivity with a global DNS infrastructure, multi-segment TCP optimization, caching and compression to offer a superior means of achieving consistently high performance for all users accessing centralized web resources hosted anywhere in the world.

Oxford Economics experienced the following benefits with the Aryaka deployment:

  • Up to 90% faster response time
  • 98% cache hit rate
  • 100% availability
  • Highly consistent performance globally
  • World class 24/7 Support including in depth network utilization analytics and insight

"The entire onboarding experience with Aryaka was very systematic, simple and quick. The benefits seen during the trial were really impressive. For larger downloads and content delivery, we saw some dramatic improvement in speeds -- up to 90% in Australia and Singapore and up to 80% in the US for certain workloads," added Arvindra. "We saw improvement in performance even in the UK where performance was already good. The incredible simplicity of the solution and excellent support during the trials was the winner for me. All we had to do was change one DNS entry and we were up and running!"
