Research finds that global application performance is 4.1 times faster on private networks versus the public Internet
SAN MATEO, Calif. – Oct. 11, 2017 – Aryaka®, the leading global SD-WAN provider, today released the first “State of SD-WAN Connectivity” report, which analyzes the performance of SD-WAN deployments over the Internet as compared with those delivered over global private networks. The report examines application response times between various global locations, as well as key factors that impact the performance of cloud and SaaS applications.
This research helps IT leaders evaluate the best underlying connectivity for their SD-WAN deployments to ensure reliable and consistent performance for all on-premises, cloud and SaaS applications, including voice, video, and data.
Below are two key highlights from this report:
- Global private networks provide 4.1x faster application response time compared to the Internet. Improved application performance increases productivity and revenue for global enterprises.
- Global private networks provide 2.5x lower variation in response times compared to the Internet. Stable and reliable connectivity to data and applications improves application performance and end user experience.
“Historically, Internet-based SD-WANs have been effective at simplifying branch connectivity and driving cost savings from a regional perspective. However, global enterprises who are forced to go over the Internet for most cloud- and SaaS-based applications, experience lost productivity and poor end user experience due to slow application performance,” said Gary Sevounts, Chief Marketing Officer of Aryaka. “This data highlights the faster and more consistent way to deliver business-critical applications. IT leaders in global enterprises must deploy an SD-WAN solution with a cloud-native private network, such as Aryaka, if they want to ensure real-time delivery of their most essential applications.”
The research follows Aryaka’s third State of the WAN Report, which closely analyzes annual enterprise WAN traffic and trends, challenges in application performance, WAN reliability and bandwidth access between specific geographies and industries.
Aryaka’s global SD-WAN helps international enterprises deliver improved performance for cloud and on-premises applications to enterprise datacenters, branch offices, and remote or mobile employees from anywhere in the world. The solution is currently deployed at more than 700 global enterprises with sites in 63 countries, and has quickly become the only viable MPLS replacement solution in the market today.

Application response times were measured and compared between various pairs of locations globally, both over Aryaka’s global private network and the public Internet. Using a randomly generated 100KB file, Aryaka evaluated both the average application response time and the variation in application response times to report performance over each network.
Aryaka is transforming how global enterprises connect sites and users worldwide, and use mission-critical applications to support modern business execution demands. Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN combines a purpose-built private network, SD-WAN, optimization and acceleration techniques, connectivity to cloud platforms, and network visibility in a single solution that is delivered as a service.
