Aryaka, the world’s first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, and Amazon Web Services(AWS) LLC, an Amazon.com company and the leader in cloud computing (NASDAQ:AMZN), today announced they havebrought to market a solution that delivers a unified infrastructure for accessing global cloud and enterprise resources.Aryaka provides an optimized network that ensures IT application instances running on AWS behave as if they were on the local network with any-to-any connectivity, regardless of where end-users are located around the world.
Using Aryaka’s network, enterprises provide optimized access for all of their locations and users to their designated locations within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)environments without installing appliances or private links. Aryaka has multiple Points of Presence (POPs) across the world, interconnected via a secure, dedicated and redundant core network as well as a full-featured WAN optimization software stack running at each of these POPs. Aryaka integrates the Amazon cloud to the enterprise headquarters and all its remote office locations in a meshed environment. This is especially relevant for global organizations with business needs where AWS does not currently have a presence, such as China and Australia.Current Aryaka customers are also able to enjoy optimized access to all AWS services via Aryaka’s global network.
Remote offices are no longer limited by the latency between their offices and the AWS instance. They can connect to a local Aryaka POP and are transported across the optimized network to their destination.Applications that are geographically distributed and require guaranteed bandwidth between AWS data centers take advantage of the Aryaka private core network as well as WAN optimization techniques including TCP optimization, compression, de-duplication and application acceleration to maximize throughput and collaboration between office locations. The solution also allows for Disaster Recovery data transfers to complete faster as compared to Internet bandwidth.
“By connecting AWS directly into the global Aryaka WAN, we are able to deliver a global cloud of resources that all corporate sites can access and be extremely productive,” said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka. “Aryaka removes latency as a barrier to productivity for business users and without the need for additional bandwidth – an additional cost savings. ‘On Aryaka,’ AWS simply meshes into becoming another branch on the newly defined global optimized WAN.”
Joint customers including InMobi, the largest independent mobile advertising network in the world, are already making their applications run faster on AWS via Aryaka’s solution. Aryaka accelerates traffic for InMobi’sdata center-to-data center transfers, providing a faster networkas well as connectivity for global office locations, all within a single network with guaranteed throughput and availability.
“The cloud is becoming an increasingly critical foundation for ourdistributed data center operations,” said MohitSaxena, co-founder and vice president of Technology for InMobi. “As we researched ways to increase data transfer rates over our expanding WAN, we constantly ran up against costly and complex solutions like appliance hardware and MPLS links. These solutions, even when combined, did not fully help us achieve our business continuity goals. We chose Aryaka because we value the consistency and affordability of their dedicated network performance as well as their 24/7 quality support.”
