Petredec Chooses Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service Over Riverbed to Replace Obsolete WAN Optimization Appliances

More Reliable Videoconferencing and Faster Remote Desktop Applications Improve Global Communications for Large LPG Trading Company

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 17, 2013) - Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service, today announced that Petredec Limited, one of the world's largest liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) trading companies, has deployed Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service to provide improved communications between employees in its globally distributed offices.

"Our employees in Singapore and Monaco were having issues with video call quality and remote desktop application performance," said Lucas Foo, IT manager for Petredec. "The performance of the remote desktop protocol sessions was much better on Aryaka, and something we had never experienced before with our existing WAN optimization box solution."

Aryaka benefits to Petredec include:

  • Improved video call quality over their IP virtual private networks (VPNs)
  • Substantially improved Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) performance
  • Stable core latency between locations
  • No software to maintain
  • No WAN optimization appliances to manage
  • Up and running in minutes
  • 24/7 global support

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.

Petredec Limited, Bermuda, was formed as an LPG trading company in 1980 to develop a shipping and trading operation in Europe and the Western Hemisphere. Before deploying Aryaka's service, Petredec was having troubles with bad quality for video calls, and RDP remote desktop sessions were very slow. Petredec reviewed potential solutions to solve its issues, including Riverbed as the replacement for obsolete Expand Networks boxes and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), but found the cost and performance of those alternatives unsatisfactory.

"As one of the world's largest LPG trading companies, Petredec understands the importance of global connectivity," said Ajit Gupta, president and CEO, Aryaka. "Aryaka is proud to provide Petredec with a dependable WAN optimization solution that improves collaboration and RDP performance to empower the management and distribution of LPG across five continents as well as seamless communication between distributed offices."
