MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 23 — Aryaka, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, today announced the availability of its Application Delivery as-a-Service, the latest addition to its expanding portfolio to deliver application acceleration and optimized connectivity for all applications both inside and outside the enterprise firewall. Aryaka's purpose-built for the cloud, application delivery solution enables distributed business users – home office workers, mobile users, customers and partners – to have optimized, consistent access to enterprise applications and cloud resources from anywhere in the world.
Aryaka's Application Delivery as-a-Service 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) removes the application performance limitations associated with traditional solutions that have been a combination of wide area network (WAN) optimization appliances, network services such as MPLS and content (or application) delivery networks (ADNs and CDNs). The solution optimizes user-to-application requests by redirecting requests to the closest Aryaka POP. Applications perform consistently, securely and reliably every time for a better user experience.
"Today's IT managers are looking for a simpler way to make all their applications run at speeds just like their Local Area Networks (LAN) in a reliable and secure environment with full visibility and control over their traffic," said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka.
"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 need for high performing applications and fast access to critical information has never been so important, according to a survey comprising research for the 2012 Application & Service Delivery Handbook by Dr. Jim Metzler, principal analyst with Ashton, Metzler & Associates. "If a business-critical application is performing poorly, it also has a very significant impact on the organization," according to Dr. Metzler's research. The most worrisome results include organizations losing revenue and customers.
With Aryaka, enterprises get the most out of application performance by leveraging the economics of the public Cloud (SaaS) model with the security of a private network. Aryaka improves the Internet speeds of enterprise applications without making changes to the applications. The service reduces the delay that Internet traffic suffers when it crosses long distances. Faster access to applications enables distributed employees to perform their daily work more quickly and be more productive to make the organization more competitive.
Aryaka's biggest differentiator over traditional solutions is the private Aryaka network of globally distributed POPs connected with a multiple dedicated links and our patent-pending multi-segment architecture. Application behavior, routing and capacity on the private network is always guaranteed, and there is never congestion. Advanced functionality like application proxies, data-deduplication, compression, caching and TCP optimization from its WAN Optimization as-a-Service solution is also included, which makes it the industry's first solution of its kind.
Enterprises leverage Aryaka's Application as-a-Service to automatically direct application traffic to one of Aryaka's closest POPs and onramp to the Aryaka private, global network. Aryaka's network is strategically built to ensure less than 20-millisecond latency to over 90 percent of the world's business users.
Aryaka's expanded portfolio of services now includes:
Aryaka delivers application and network performance for the globally distributed enterprise for better collaboration, communication and business productivity. Aryaka eliminates the need for costly WAN appliances or long-haul private links. Aryaka's premier WAN Optimization as-a-Service accelerates any application to any location on one affordable, optimized network. Aryaka's Network as-a-Service provides organizations an optimized TCP network with QoS for instant and reliable business connectivity. Aryaka's Application Delivery as-a-Service enables distributed business users to quickly access centralized enterprise applications and Cloud resources from anywhere in the world. All services provide end-to-end visibility with 24×7 world-class support.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
