Digital Transformation

Digital transformation initiatives, and associated
WAN transformation, introduce both challenges and
new opportunities. Aryaka’s solution is tailored to
the needs of the digital enterprise.


Customer Challenges

Digital transformation initiatives, and associated WAN
transformation, introduce both challenges and new opportunities.

01.

The cloud, big data, social, mobile, and even IoT play a central role in this transformation, and it is critical that enterprises get the WAN architecture right.

02.

Unfortunately, traditional WAN options are either not flexible, are expensive, and are just incapable of handle the demands of a modern digital enterprise.

03.

Direct cloud connectivity, application acceleration, end-to-end security and global SLAs are features that are either not available or available with the addition of expensive new hardware.

04.

The network transformation journey is not an easy one, given the critical nature of connectivity and the consequences of a network outage. Unlike the static enterprise WAN of yesteryears, the enterprise WAN networks of today are living, breathing, dynamic entity; that need to continually evolve with the needs of the business. In such an environment, not only the choice of technology (SD-WAN) but also the mode of operation matters.

05.

In such a fast-changing dynamic environment, the DIY approach (do-it-yourself) to SD-WAN has many challenges, such as the need for expensive resources as well as purchasing contracts with OEMs. Carrier provided SD-WAN may be an option, but it comes with conditions attached, like last and first-mile lock-in, long rollout times, no single SLA and multiple contracts for end-to-end connectivity.

Aryaka Solution

Aryaka’s solution is tailored to the needs of digital and WAN transformation, delivering operational excellence, application performance, deployment velocity and flexibility, integrating security, and supporting initiatives such as IoT.

Aryaka’s SD-WAN solution is delivered as a fully managed service, offering the flexibility and agility that prevents the WAN from becoming a barrier to transformation.

Aryaka’s technology is supported by customer focus, operational simplicity, and enables new cloud-first business models.


Benefits for Customers

WAN Transformation Enabler

The flexibility and richness of the Aryaka service permits IT to place applications and data anywhere in the world, and accessible by employees in any region and at any time. The WAN no longer stands in the way of ultimate flexibility.

Operational Excellence

As the complexity of WAN increases, the complexity of associated operations also increases, and specialized resources are required to design, configure and monitor the network. Aryaka hides the complexity, permitting IT teams to focus on what matters most in support of business demands.

Cloud Application Performance

Cloud application performance is the one aspect that affects every single person in the organization. Aryaka’s fully managed SD-WAN as-a-service comes with direct regional connectivity to AWS, Azure and Oracle’s IaaS platforms, as well as many popular SaaS applications. WAN optimization and data de-duplication ensure that users experience great application performance.

Speed of Rollout

As a fully managed on-demand SD-WAN, Aryaka can deliver connectivity in a few days rather than in months. This is a critical requirement for sectors like retail, banking and healthcare, where it is common to have branches in remote locations. Also, Aryaka guarantees end-to-end performance with Day 1 SLAs.

Security

Increased traffic and Internet access from the branch increases flexibility and performance. However, it also creates a security loophole that needs addressing. Installing security hardware in every branch is an expensive proposition. Aryaka’s solution offers end-to-end security from the physical to the data link, network and application layers.

IoT and M2M Traffic

IoT is used extensively in sectors like health¬care, manufacturing, retail and logistics. Traffic from sensors and other devices are bursty, often mission-critical and very sensitive to latency. Aryaka’s SD-WAN can identify varying traffic types, segment them and apply policies that reflect business priorities.

  • Aryaka has achieved a level of deployment that is unmatched in the industry. Where before it would take months or years to plan a network deployment, Aryaka came into Pilot Freight Services and was able to achieve deployment into our most critical areas within a matter of weeks as opposed to months or years… Deployment has been a phenomenal experience that has also allowed us to change and accelerate our schedules and delivery.
