MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service, Application Delivery as-a-Service and Cloud Network as-a-Service, announced today that one its customers, Amyris, a leading renewable products company, has selected Aryaka to provide connectivity stability and application performance improvement between their US headquarters and manufacturing plants in Brazil.
Amyris is an integrated renewable products company focused on providing sustainable alternatives to a broad range of petroleum-sourced products. Amyris uses its industrial bioscience technology platform to convert plant sugars into a variety of hydrocarbon molecules -- flexible building blocks that can be used in a wide range of products. As its labs are in California but its industrial manufacturing is in Brazil, Amyris U.S.-based employees regularly communicate and collaborate over WAN-based voice, video and data applications with their colleagues at two locations in Brazil.
Prior to implementing Aryaka solution, Amyris was facing significant latency issues between their offices in the US and Brazil, affecting employee productivity. In order to boost performance, Amyris was actively evaluating solutions that would offer them a reliable and stable connection between offices and improve network performance. The company evaluated a few different networking solutions, including MPLS, which was deemed too costly.
Amyris also considered deploying WAN Optimization appliances using IP VPN over the Internet, in an attempt to address these issues -- however, international IP VPN to Brazil proved too unpredictable and unstable for a connectivity requirement that included voice and video traffic. Enter Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service, which caught Amyris's attention as a complete solution. Aryaka's service packages a dedicated core network based on globally distributed POPs, with its cloud-based WAN Optimization technology. This enables enterprises to get stable, predictable latency across the globe on a secure private network, combined with the significant application performance benefits that WAN Optimization delivers -- without having to pay separately for MPLS or appliances. One simple solution that was cost effective, fully managed and could be deployed in hours was exactly what Amyris was looking for. With Aryaka, applications like SharePoint, email and FTP now run up to 20 times faster and VoIP and video benefit from jitter-free, stable core network, increasing productivity through improved connectivity.
"We were already considering a solution provided by a renowned leader for WAN acceleration when Aryaka reached out to us," said Arul Daniel, Vice President, IT for Amyris. "Aryaka's solution is a more complete solution as they have integrated their WAN Optimization technology with a private core network resulting in far more stable and improved performance numbers. With Aryaka, we avoided the additional cost of MPLS and the hassle of appliance installation and maintenance. We're getting faster application performance out of Brazil now, giving a boost to employee productivity."
