Tavant Integrates Aryaka's WAN Optimization to Enhance Business Services for Global Brands, Saving Time and Thousands of Dollars over MPLS and Appliances

Cloud-Based Solution Allows Globally Distributed Teams Faster File Access, Real-Time Collaboration and Disaster Recovery

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - Aryaka, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, announced today that Tavant Technologies, a leading IT solutions and services provider, has deployed Aryaka's WAN optimization delivered as-a-service to better connect clients and offshore teams, and seamlessly send traffic to and from data centers located across its Wide Area Network (WAN).

Tavant develops cutting-edge technologies for leading brands in service operations, consumer lending, eBusiness, and Trading & Securities. The company specializes in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions and providing end-to-end services for very demanding and security-conscious customers -- who do not tolerate network downtime or data loss. While the company had tried various options for WAN connectivity, offshore teams were continuously frustrated by poor application performance. Database backups took more than three days over IPLC (international private leased circuit), and the company was forced to resort to shipping DVDs via FedEx between the United States and India for Disaster Recovery (DR). Tavant switched to expensive Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) links, which took months to implement and still did not address application performance issues.

Tavant selected Aryaka because Aryaka's cloud-based WAN optimization solution enabled the Tavant workforce to access files faster, collaborate globally in real-time, and realize improved productivity across a common platform, without appliances and expensive, dedicated point-to-point links. With Aryaka, Tavant noticed immediate improvements in application behavior, throughput and drastically reduced bandwidth requirements for FTP, SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange. Their disaster recovery solution was enhanced as well.

Aryaka's WAN optimization-as-a-service, which includes TCP optimization, bandwidth scaling techniques (compression and ARR™/data deduplication) and application proxies built on a dedicated, secure network of global points of presence (POPs) with end-to-end visibility using the MyAryaka™ customer portal, gave Tavant a one-stop solution.

"Before deploying the Aryaka solution, we found that our WAN performance was so slow that it was unusable -- latency was a killer," said Sarvesh Mahesh, CEO of Tavant Technologies. "Aryaka provides us LAN-like performance on our WAN so that our people can actively use Email, SharePoint and backups across the network, improving our business processes and keeping our distributed locations synchronized in real-time."

"Tavant has a proud tradition of engineering and process excellence with high employee and customer satisfaction," said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka. "The Aryaka solution provides Tavant with MPLS-like high-quality connectivity as well as application performance and bandwidth conservation at a much lower cost. This means that all Tavant employees can continually and seamlessly interact to provide a superior experience to their customers."

Results with Aryaka
By implementing Aryaka's WAN optimization delivered as-a-service, Tavant realizes the following benefits:

  • Improved throughput by over 42x
  • 87 percent reduction in MS Exchange data, freeing the network for future growth and mission-critical traffic
  • LAN traffic spikes of 15Mbps are compressed into less than 1.8Mbps WAN throughput
  • An Aryaka subscription of just 1.5Mbps gives the company elastic capacity at no additional cost!
  • Backup windows for large files and disaster recovery (DR) across geographically dispersed locations are down to hours from days
  • Stable and higher sustained throughput for secure traffic
  • Annual savings of tens of thousands of dollars over MPLS and traditional WAN optimization appliances
