Aryaka's Award-Winning WAN Optimization Solution Cited for Enabling Customers to Reduce Data Transfer 30X and Gain a 33X Increase in Available Bandwidth

MILPITAS, CA-- Jan 23, 2012 - Aryaka, provider of the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, today announced it has been named to CRN's 2012 Data Center 100 list. This annual list recognizes technology vendors for powering, supporting and protecting today's data center services in an environmentally and economically friendly manner, while boosting efficiency and productivity.

"We're honored to be among this year's CRN 2012 Data Center 100, and we're proud to see the Aryaka WAN optimization platform delivered-as-a-service recognized for enabling enterprises to backup and replicate data simply, affordably and in real-time," said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka. "Companies have narrow data replication windows to protect their core assets. With Aryaka, they can cut replication times from days to minutes and more efficiently utilize existing network capacity."

"The 2012 Data Center 100 list recognizes vendors that, over the course of 2011, have shown a dedication to the innovation and advancement of today's data center services," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director for UBM Channel. "The recent upsurge in cloud computing has solution providers searching for new ways to ensure their clients maintain connectivity while mitigating costs and security threats. We congratulate each vendor on the 2012 Data Center 100 list for providing a significant growth opportunity for solution providers to build their business by offering cutting-edge products and services to customers."

Aryaka is unique in its ability to accelerate data between distributed data centers and for multiple customers in a non-intrusive and appliance-free way across the Internet. With its global network deployed across multiple Points of Presence (POPs), it provides optimized connectivity worldwide. Aryaka is an ideal solution for critical data center applications such as data center replication (DC-DC) and disaster recovery (DR) with Oracle Data Guard, which enterprises utilize to create, maintain and monitor one or more standby databases to protect data from failures, disasters, errors and corruption. Customers using Oracle Data Guard over the Aryaka optimized network have seen improvement in data replication performance by as much as 30X.

Aryaka's secure global network removes the complexity, high cost, and application performance limitations associated with older solutions, such as WAN optimization appliances or MPLS links. Enterprise organizations looking to migrate from IP VPN to a 'Better Internet for Business' can benefit from Aryaka's intelligent WAN Delivery Network (AryakaWDN) that resolves application delivery performance issues for improved business productivity.

Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2012 Data Center 100 list is featured in the January issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
