Influential Magazine Recommends Aryaka for Cloud-Based WAN Optimization-as-a-Service to Worldwide Channel Partners

MILPITAS, CA -- 06/29/11 -- Aryaka (www.aryaka.com), provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, announced today that it has been selected as a "Hot Emerging Vendor" by CRN magazine.

CRN highlights 10 new IT vendors each month. Aryaka was noted for its innovation and accelerating momentum as the company continues to expand its global footprint. In recent weeks, Aryaka has announced the rollout and availability of its dedicated network of global Points of Presence (POPs) and the completion of a $15 million Series B financing round. Aryaka has also announced its Emergence Strategic Alliance program to further deepen its partnerships with VARs, referral agents, IaaS providers, and service providers.

CRN recommended Aryaka for its cloud-based WAN optimization-as-a-service that can deliver less than 20 millisecond latency for 90 percent of the world's users of business Internet, noting the IT trend of "moving away from hardware appliance-based solutions toward the as-a-service delivery model." The publication described the Hot Emerging Vendors for 2011 as companies that "know the importance of the channel and are looking to align with valued channel partners to get their names and products out."

"We appreciate CRN's support by putting us in the spotlight as a 'hot emerging vendor' and for bringing continued value to the worldwide community of product resellers, product vendors, distributors, and customers," said Ajit Gupta, Aryaka Founder, President and CEO. "This recognition is a testament to our team, our partners and our customers. We will continue to expand 'Emergence,' our alliance program, to enable the cloud revolution for enterprises through our partners in an inventory-less, margin-rich and recurring revenue-stream model. "

In another recent article in Datamation, Aryaka was prominently featured as an emerging cloud computing vendor providing network performance and optimization. Author Jeff Vance, a contributing writer for Forbes magazine, wrote that Aryaka is an "up-and-comer" because of the business problem it solves. "WAN Optimization is a solution that has, until now, been reserved for only the biggest companies with the deepest pockets," Vance wrote. "It's simply too expensive for the mid-market. By offering a cloud-based, pay-as-you-go solution, Aryaka intends to deliver WAN Optimization to the masses. The opportunity for connecting branch offices alone represents a huge opportunity."

Aryaka's cloud-based WAN optimization enables distributed enterprises to communicate and collaborate, simply and affordably. The company has designed and built WAN-optimization functionality from the ground up into a globally deployed Aryaka Cloud that has reach across the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Pacific region.

The Aryaka Optimized Cloud eliminates the need for the traditional appliance and the long haul Multiprotocol Label Switch (MPLS) network with its associated cost and complexity. Aryaka provides true business benefits including increased application performance, employee productivity, bandwidth savings on IT spend, elastic capacity, and inherent redundancy and availability with Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
