Aryaka: Attestation to Pure WAN Connectivity with Optimal Bandwidth Use

Among the recent companies that have proved a blessing to cloud computing, perhaps none has done more, in a world where network is the lifeline, than Aryaka. This cloud startup whose base is California began in 2008 but has since earned wide recognition for its Wide Area Network (WAN) coverage that allows users to access connectivity that rivals that of the Local Area Network (LAN). Perhaps these attributes, alongside the fact that the firm is one of the initial platforms to provide this kind of technology around the globe, are what have earned the company recognition from, among others, GigaOM. The following are the technical features of this product depicting both the beneficial and functional specifications.

The Way Aryaka’s WAN Operates

To understand the technical capabilities of this startup, one must separate three major ingredients of a network into context.

Those of Aryaka include:

Points of Presence (POP): Instead of relying on expensive, hardware-dependant LANs, the cloud startup instead goes for POPs. These are private stations, all over the planet, that are in a square mileage proximate to the end users. It acts as the reference point and provides the same work, though with better redundancy, as a private cloud communications infrastructure or a local network provider.

WAN: The wide area that this company covers is global, national or local. Because the infrastructure is courtesy of Aryaka, the clients need not to install any routing devices or rely on unreliable network connection from a telecommunications provider. Secondly, the startup offers remote management of the systems in place to ensure the right redundancy that can make the network to operate in a double blind manner.

Bandwidth: When operating on a bandwidth, it is essential to have performance that does not cower down from redundancy ramifications due to various issues like network congestion when many clients are relying on one service. This cloud startup offers a worthy alternative, going by the technical name of Advanced Redundancy Removal (AAR), where the technological tools compress memory and duplicate data. The upshot of this is the fact that bandwidth usage goes down to a level of 98 percent. This means that users can finally avail cloud-like benefits where they can scale their bandwidth, due to its economy of up to 20 to 50 times more than recently. This is where the secret of accessing a Local Area Network effect in WAN comes in.

The Possible Benefits of the Technology

Proponents of Aryaka’s offering are gainsaying the demerits of the traditional network that can be either private, public cloud or LAN, delineating their respective high redundancy, unreliability due to congestion and hardware expenditure. In this particular alternative, however, it has become apparent that one reduces capital expenditure on the equipment department. Secondly, there is no need to conduct IT training for the staff. This is because both the management duties and hardware systems emanate from the startup.

Pricing

There are no concrete details about the pricing criteria of Aryaka’s product, primarily because network coverage is both data and equipment-based. However, one can draw the conclusion that the costs are quite manageable because of the aforementioned use of bandwidth-optimization technology. This means that the end-user can only amass high costs when scaling the bandwidth. Still, the significance of the cost would not hit the bull’s eye until one does scale to more than 50 times the current usage. This applies to large organizations with high network demands.

Recognition

Aryaka received critical acclaim from technology analysis firms. In 2011, Gartner accorded the firm with the term, Cool Vendor, for its Enterprise Communications offerings. The latter applies to the collaborative framework that the startup provides for closely-packed businesses that can tap from a local POP, thus reducing separate installation costs. CIO.com also listed the firm among the Top 10 ranking companies that will have an impact in the coming days of the cloud.

Therefore, Aryaka passes the test, flawlessly, as one of the most important cloud startups, not only in the technology capital of the world, the United States, but the entire globe. The standing out feature is its POP configuration in an otherwise traditionally lax, extensive network environment, WAN. Furthermore, the management comes from various top-notch network management companies, which reinforces the fact of the firm’s greatness and accountability. Apparently, the team has managed to raise substantial funds for the company. This is why their brainchild deserves a mention among the top North America cloud startups.
