Ocean shipping e-marketplace leader adopts WAN as-a-Service for optimized enterprise-grade connectivity at a higher ROI
Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that INTTRA, the world’s largest ocean shipping electronic marketplace, information and service provider has deployed Aryaka’s cloud-based WAN as-a-Service to enhance network connectivity and application performance between its sites in the U.S., Singapore, India, and China.
INTTRA’s innovative transaction and information products, combined with the scale of their network, empower their customers to trade with multiple parties and leverage ocean industry information to improve business. They work with 54 leading carriers and NVOCCs, their software alliance partners, and their customers, to streamline and standardize shipping processes worldwide through a network of more than 220,000 shipping professionals.
Prior to deploying Aryaka, INTTRA had traditional WAN Optimization solution deployed at a few of their locations to enable efficient collaboration. The total cost of ownership (TCO) associated with that set-up was an expensive proposition, owing to bandwidth and software upgrade costs. Having to internally manage and maintain the boxes also added to the overall cost and used up internal IT resources.
When INTTRA began investigating alternative solutions, Aryaka stepped in to offer a cloud-based connectivity and application-acceleration solution delivered as a fully managed service, one with zero CapEx, an incredibly quick deployment timeline, world-class customer support, and network-wide visibility.
“As INTTRA looked to further accelerate application performance, improve data compression and reduce the deployment schedules, we selected Aryaka as a new technology provider,” said Michael Lunny, Director, Platform Architecture, INTTRA, “With Aryaka, we were pleasantly surprised with the value and affordability of the WAN as-a-Service solution”.
INTTRA has already experienced the following benefits since deploying Aryaka’s WAN as-a-Service:
- Up to 16 times faster application performance
- Up to 98% compression and data reduction across all applications
- Over 5 Mbps peak bandwidth savings
- Up to 4 times faster TCP connection setup
- WAN and application-layer visibility through the web-based MyAryakaTM portal
- Truly world-class support and expertise
