MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/13 -- Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service solutions, today announced Cloud Network as-a-Service to optimize and simplify access to all private and public cloud services including, but not limited to, Office 365, Google Apps and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The solution ensures a uniform, private, low latency network experience for all users within the enterprise, irrespective of where the cloud service or the user is located.

While cloud services targeted to the enterprise like Office 365 and AWS are global in their availability, individual enterprises are assigned one key data center, usually the one closest to headquarters. Employees at distributed offices must therefore traverse the public internet to access this data center, resulting in latency and congestion, especially during peak usage times. Aryaka's Cloud Network, delivered as a service, bypasses this process, enabling businesses to deliver fast, consistent, enterprise-wide access over a private network to cloud data and access cloud services in locations that were previously too beleaguered by latency.

"Enterprises continue to increase their spending on both private and hybrid cloud infrastructure as-a-service in addition to continuing to increase their usage of software as-a-service offerings such as CRM, database and collaboration tools," said Jim Davis, Senior Analyst, 451 Research. "We believe that the rapid increase in consumption of cloud infrastructure as-a-service solutions will drive demand for bandwidth services that can connect branch offices and mobile workers under an ever changing array of use cases."

End users surveyed by 451 Research say that increasing bandwidth and network upgrades in the datacenter are among the top projects Fortune 500 companies have on tap in 2013. According to the Networking Wave 10 study, 38 percent of enterprises surveyed are planning to increase spending on networking services and technology in 2014, compared to 2013.

The newly announced solution is already seeing high demand from forward-looking companies including Calypso, InMobi and Red Tail Consultants. Over the past year, the customer base for the service has grown exponentially, fueled by the success of existing deployments, with companies benefiting from an average of 8x faster access to cloud services.

"As storage and compute continue to move to the cloud and companies become increasingly distributed, high-performance connectivity across all global locations, including cloud instances, becomes essential. That is why the network is the crucial element for cloud success," said Ajit Gupta, President and CEO, Aryaka. "Aryaka's Cloud Network as-a-service allows any location to quickly access any application, whether on premise or in the cloud, across one platform. This is our vision: to simplify the network for businesses of all sizes while delivering exceptional performance."

A recent RightScale report(1) estimates that three-quarters of businesses are moving to the cloud. Aryaka's Cloud Network as-a-Service connects instances running on the cloud as if they are on the local network with any-to-any connectivity, regardless of where end users are located around the world. Aryaka's globally distributed Points of Presence (POPs), interconnected via a secure, dedicated and redundant core network as well as a full-featured optimization software stack running at each of these POPs, provides enterprises with optimized access for all locations and users within cloud environments. Without requiring the installation of appliances or private links, Aryaka integrates enterprise cloud services to all office locations and data centers in a meshed environment.

"Our remote employees had been complaining about slow application response times around the world," said Brad Taylor, global director tech operations, Calypso. "We considered moving resources closer by building out more data centers or investing in fully meshed MPLS links with WAN optimization hardware appliances. It made better sense to go with a service model like Aryaka for many reasons and not just cost and performance. We needed a solution -- fast -- and with Aryaka's quick turn-up we saw immediate results. SCP over SSH runs 20X faster over Aryaka. SVN source-code checkout runs 13X faster."

Aryaka's Application Delivery as-a-Service also allows cloud providers to distribute content or dynamic applications to a worldwide audience of employees, customers and partners. Both the solutions are globally available through Aryaka's 25 data centers with simplified subscription-based pricing and 24/7 customer support.

"The cloud is becoming an increasingly critical foundation for our distributed data center operations," said Mohit Saxena, co-founder and VP of technology, InMobi. "As we researched ways to increase data transfer rates over our expanding WAN, we constantly ran up against costly and complex solutions like appliance hardware and MPLS links. We chose Aryaka because we value the consistency and affordability of their dedicated network performance as well as their 24/7 quality support."

In addition to Office 365, Google Apps and AWS, customers rely on the Aryaka network to connect to multiple cloud services worldwide including Contegix, Skytap and many more. To learn more about Aryaka's cloud network offering, please visit: http://www.aryaka.com/products/cloud-acceleration/.
