WAN optimization and acceleration has always been the ‘bee in the bonnet’ for enterprises of all sizes and types around the world. On one end, companies are globalizing with branch offices in multiple locations. At the same time they are centralizing all their IT assets to achieve economies of scale, control and security. However, this centralization of data and applications poses enormous IT challenges linked to security issues and the high volumes of data traversing¬ global WAN links. These problems include high cost, poor performance in terms of both bandwidth and latency, poor visibility across branches, and complex management of acceleration and security equipment between branches, headquarters, and data centers.

Ajit Gupta founded Aryaka in 2008 with this vision to resolve application and network performance issues faced by distributed enterprises. Aryaka applies a revolutionary SaaS model to application acceleration and WAN optimization offering significant reduce in cost, ease of use and performance advantages.

Instead of traditional approaches, which use either a WAN Optimization Controller (WOC) or implement it as a managed service, Aryaka is designed for cloud-based Application Acceleration and WAN Optimization and offers customers cost effective, scalable, and reliable connectivity between enterprise locations. The software and technology used in the Aryaka Network is proprietary, built from the ground up, and patent pending.

Aryaka’s uniqueness lies in the fact that its network operates with the advantages of a private cloud combined with the economics of a public cloud, thereby offering enterprises the unprecedented ability to overcome the inherent challenges of appliance-based solutions. Enterprises looking to leverage the cloud now have access to the key enabler – the network – in addition to computing and storage resources. Aryaka gives enterprises, for the first time, a high-performance, highly-available and scalable, application-aware network whenever and wherever they do business.
