Real-time data protection
WAN optimization as-a-Service is a bold new approach that is gaining significant adoption as it enables enterprises the highest network and application performance for smoother collaboration and higher productivity between globally distributed teams.
Because hardware-heavy WAN optimization approaches are symmetrical, they require a minimum of two boxes, typically between headquarters and a branch office. As new branch offices come online, more boxes are required for each of these remote sites. An additional management and visibility device is required to monitor the network. Ongoing IT costs arise to fix bugs, assess and remediate network outage situations and ensure 24x7 IT support. Finally, there is typically a need to also invest in a private network – dedicated MPLS links. Aryaka's WAN optimization-as-a-Service eliminates all that by enabling enterprises to simply plug into an MPLS-like private network in the cloud for dramatically lower TCO.
"Everything changes from generation to generation -- fads, fashion, music, language and, of course, technology," said Sonal Puri, Aryaka Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "As technology evolves so should your business. Now is the time to trade in clunky, complex and costly WAN optimization boxes and move to an intelligent network in the cloud."
