With Aryaka, JAS achieved 300x faster TCP connections, 95x compression rate and more than 56% in cost savings
Aryaka®, the leading ‘As-A-Service’ provider of WAN Optimization, Application Delivery and Cloud Networks, today announced that its customer JAS Forwarding Worldwide won the 2015 Frost & Sullivan CIO Impact Award in the “Enterprise Architecture” category.
JAS, a recognized global leader in freight forwarding, was selected as a winner for their successful implementation of Aryaka’s innovative WAN Optimization-as-a-Service. Before the implementation, JAS faced a tough challenge: the company needed a single system with a single database to collect all transactional information in real time from all of its global offices, across the six major continents. To achieve this, it was critical for JAS to find a single architectural solution for its global network. Aryaka was the key strategic business partner that allowed JAS to deploy a unified network that would deliver information in a fast, reliable and secure fashion.
Upon implementing Aryaka, JAS experienced numerous benefits including:
- 300x faster TCP connections
- 95x compression rate
- A fully managed, no-hardware service
- More than 56% in cost savings
“The project we undertook was really a complete revamp of the enterprise architecture of JAS. The goal was to enable our 240 offices to transact in real time,” said Mark Baker, CIO of JAS Forwarding Worldwide. “More than that, though, it was important for every user in every office anywhere in the world to have the exact same high-quality experience when accessing business-critical applications. To complicate matters, we wanted to achieve all of this under a very insane deployment schedule of 18 months.”
JAS knew going in that this was going to be a real challenge, one that would eliminate many contenders well before even the proof-of-concept stage.
“Aryaka was the key strategic business partner that helped us meet that challenge. Aryaka provided JAS with a unified network that delivers information in a quick, reliable and secure fashion to any of our global locations,” Baker said. “We found a solid partner in Aryaka, and now we have a reliable global network with built-in management and optimization tools. Aryaka provided us with a simple, cost-effective solution with no maintenance or capital expenditure. They were the perfect answer to the challenge we faced.”
“We are honored to help JAS Worldwide win this prestigious award,” said Ajit Gupta, CEO of Aryaka. “At Aryaka, we are firmly focused on providing innovative, industry-leading solutions for the WAN – and the rest of the enterprise network. Helping our customers transform their businesses is our number-one priority, and we are elated to have been an integral part of just such a transformation for JAS. It has been a pleasure working with such a forward-looking company.”
