Global Financial Leader Calypso Technology Trades Up to Aryaka for WAN Optimization

March 10, 2013

Aryaka's Optimized, Intelligent Network Provides Smooth Sailing for Calypso's Remote Employees, Putting an End to Complaints About Application Response Time Worldwide

MILPITAS, CA -Mar 11, 2013 - Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service and Application Delivery as-a-Service solutions, today announced that Calypso, a global financial and software services company, has deployed Aryaka's intelligent network to ensure smooth collaboration and communication for its distributed teams around the world. Applications including SCP over SSH, HTTP, HTTPS and subversion (SVN) run as much as 20 times faster on Aryaka than on costly and complex WAN optimization appliances. Calypso also saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by avoiding investment in more data centers or Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) infrastructure.

Calypso delivers integrated cross asset solutions for trading, risk processing and control serving customers including banks, prime brokers, buy-side firms and treasury services providers. To improve its network, the company initially considered more costly solutions such as moving resources closer to users or getting a fully meshed MPLS network with WAN Optimization appliances. Ultimately, Calypso selected Aryaka's faster, simpler network because it could be quickly deployed in minutes versus months while also resolving issues of high latency, bandwidth scaling and sharing of large files over great distances securely, reliably and delivered as a service.

"Our remote employees had been complaining about slow application response times and we needed a solution -- fast," said Brad Taylor, global director of Technology Operations for 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. 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 provides a foundation that connects all corporate resources in an optimized fashion, regardless of the latency between client and server. Aryaka's unique, multi-segment architecture delivers LAN-like performance over the WAN without the high cost of MPLS or the investment and hassle of purchased WAN Optimization appliance solutions -- all in a single, no capital expenditure monthly service.

Aryaka delivers these benefits to Calypso:

  • Quick turn-up: Hours compared to months required by MPLS and WAN optimization appliances
  • SCP over SSH runs 20X faster over Aryaka
  • SVN checkout is 13X faster over Aryaka
  • Burst to 140 percent of subscribed bandwidth on Aryaka
  • Stable core latency between locations for a superior end-user experience
