Aryaka Recognized for Innovation With Cloud-Based WAN Optimization

MILPITAS, CA — Aryaka, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, today announced that CRN magazine has recognized the company as one of the "Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage & Data Center Vendors" for 2012. 

"Storage and data center infrastructure are the keys to building a successful cloud business for customers," wrote CRN news editor Andrew R. Hickey. "SaaS-based WAN optimization vendor Aryaka is banking on what it calls its WAN optimization-as-a-service platform, which has been tailored for speeded-up cloud computing environments. Aryaka can take that cloud WAN optimization to new heights."

In naming Aryaka to the list, Hickey pointed out that, "No cloud platform, whether offered directly to customers or via a service provider, can ignore the value of high-performance, scalable and low-cost data storage. At the same time, an efficient, well-managed and flexible data center is the foundation on which not only a cloud service is built, but on which all cloud services are delivered."

"We truly appreciate CRN's support in recognizing us as one of the world's coolest and most innovative cloud vendors," said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka. "Aryaka's cloud-based solution has been recognized for enabling enterprises to accelerate, backup and replicate data simply, affordably and in real-time while more efficiently utilize existing network capacity."

Aryaka is unique in its ability to accelerate data between distributed data centers and for multiple customers in a non-intrusive and appliance-free way across the Internet. For example, Oracle Data Guard traffic replicates easily on Aryaka with 60% data reduction without private links.
