The Silicon Review
“Aryaka’s award-winning global connectivity solutions serve as a superhighway to globally distributed enterprises.”
Global businesses expect extremely high availability and performance while accessing “on-premises” and SaaS-based applications on the WAN. Relying on the public Internet adds congestion, packet loss and latency, which deteriorate application performance. This adversely impacts business productivity, execution and collaboration. Software-Defined WANs (SD-WANs) fail to address application performance issues, especially in global scenarios, due to their reliance on the public Internet.
Founded in 2009, Aryaka’s Software Defined Network Platform combines a global private network, WAN optimization technology and SD-WAN functionality, to deliver enterprise-grade global connectivity and application acceleration. The company’s founders built a Software-Defined Network Platform to address growing application performance challenges caused by globalization and exponential growth in cloud adoption.
There are a few startups that claim to deliver SD-WAN solutions, which implement hybrid networks (different links for different kinds of traffic, based on preset priority levels), enable centralized control of the WAN and reduce overall network costs. However, they fall short on delivering consistent and enhanced application performance due to their reliance on the Internet. Aryaka’s Cloud Access Network is uniquely positioned to provide access and acceleration to cloud services and SaaS-based applications, enabling global enterprises to deliver significantly faster application performance that supports business productivity and execution requirements.
