Global Software Solutions Firm Cinches Project Deadlines with Aryaka’s Optimized Intelligent Network

MILPITAS, Calif. – Jan. 29, 2013 — Aryaka® (www.aryaka.com), the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service™, Network as-a-Service™ and Application Delivery as-a-Service™, today announced that Orion Systems Integrators, Inc., an award-wining global provider of IT services and solutions for leading Fortune 500 companies, has deployed Aryaka’s optimized, intelligent network to speed large file transfers, boost application responsiveness and increase bandwidth utilization for improved collaboration across multiple teams and employee productivity. Orion chose Aryaka over Riverbed because of the greater benefits of controlling the “middle mile” rather than placing an appliance at each end over the public Internet at multiple site locations.

Aryaka delivers these benefits to Orion:

  • —  9X faster FTP
  • —  3X better SSH responsiveness
  • —  24X bandwidth savings
  • —  Zero CAPEX – no equipment to purchase, monthly subscription
  • —  End-to-end WAN and application visibility

“Our developers in Asia were losing valuable production time due to international ingress and egress bandwidth concerns, keeping them at risk of falling behind on project deadlines, potentially causing conflicts with customers,” said Rudy Ramcharitar, Executive Vice President of Orion. “Orion had been considering multiple hardware optimization appliances like Riverbed when we came across Aryaka. We found we could maximize output by allowing Aryaka to both monitor and optimize the core network between our locations – 9X faster FTP, CIFS reduced 81%, FTP lowered by 40% and 70% reduction in HTTP.”

Over the past two years as Orion rapidly expanded its global customer base, the company’s infrastructure faced setbacks for intercontinental data transit. As traffic volume increased, data transfer slowed to a crawl, specifically between Orion’s India development teams and its US headquarters. Orion initially looked at WAN optimization as a tactical solution to solve its distance and latency issues. However, Orion quickly realized that the bandwidth and cost savings Aryaka delivered as a service enabled the company to be much more strategic and thus enable greater employee collaboration and productivity. By upgrading from public intercontinental wide area network (WAN) links to Aryaka’s private, secure network, Orion is now able to better shape its network for optimal communication – especially during peak traffic periods. As a result, Orion maximizes its existing bandwidth capacity and ensures that international collaboration is seamless for faster time-to-market for its global customers.
