It lets a company's expanded circle of users - home office workers, mobile users, customers and partners - get optimized, consistent access to centralized enterprise applications and cloud resources from anywhere in the world.
That means both inside and outside the enterprise firewall.
The new widgetry accelerates Internet application response times by connecting users to the closest Aryaka POP so they can quickly access applications and critical data.
Aryaka's secure private network of global Points of Presence (POPs) is supposed to remove the application performance limitations associated with traditional solutions.
It claims superiority because it's built from the ground up.
It says traditional solutions such as ADNs and CDNs fall short because they cobbled together disparate solutions in an attempt to deliver applications across the millions of networks interconnected to appear as a single network (a k a the Internet). In fact, these approaches have to stop and ask for directions on these millions of networks, which results in latency, inconsistent application performance and poor user experience.
It says it doesn't.
It says it's got a single, unified private network - not an Internet overlay so application behavior, routing and capacity is always guaranteed and there's never any traffic congestion to deal with. It says it delivers applications consistently, securely and reliably to drive application adoption and business productivity. Its WAN optimization technology is now available to all public business users wherever they are and it says no other application delivery service does this without resorting to hybrid technologies.
According to Aryaka founder and head honcho Ajit Gupta, "Today's IT managers are looking for a simpler way to make all their applications run at speeds just like their Local Area Networks (LANs) in a reliable and secure environment with full visibility and control over their traffic. Aryaka's Application Delivery as-a-Service enables enterprises to leverage the cloud and extend the reach of business applications to users outside the bounds of the traditional corporate network. This new solution is our commitment to provide what customers want - more choices in the market for all services in a simple utility model and with competitive pricing."
The widgetry goes for $2,000 a month for 2 megabits a second and $2,500 a month for 5 megabits a second.
Enterprises are supposed to get the most out of application performance with Aryaka by leveraging the economics of the public cloud and the Software-as-a-Service model with the security of a private network.
Aryaka says it improves the Internet speeds of enterprise applications without changing the applications. The service reduces the delay that Internet traffic suffers when it crosses long distances. Faster access to applications enables distributed employees to work more productively and make the organization more competitive.
Aryaka's biggest differentiator over traditional solutions is its private network of globally distributed POPs connected with multiple dedicated links and its patent-pending multi-segment architecture. It says application behavior, routing and capacity on the private network are always guaranteed, and there's never congestion. Advanced functionality like application proxies, data deduplication, compression, caching and TCP optimization from its WAN Optimization as-a-Service solution is included, which it claims makes it the industry's first solution of its kind.
Aryaka claims its network is built to ensure less than 20ms latency to over 90% of the world's business users.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
