Aryaka Expands its Network to Tokyo and Johannesburg


With 3000 customer sites across 50 countries and in 280 cities, 90% of the world’s enterprise business users are within 20 milliseconds of an Aryaka Point of Presence



MILPITAS, Calif. August 5, 2014 - Aryaka®, the leading ‘As-A-Service’ provider of WAN OptimizationNetworkApplication and Content Delivery and Cloud Networks, has further strengthened its network with its expansion into Tokyo, Japan and Johannesburg, South Africa. This investment in Points of Presence (POPs) was spurred by strong customer demand, a fast growing presence of global companies and the need to enable multinational firms to improve their connectivity to locations in Japan and South Africa from offices elsewhere.

Network expansion is a part of Aryaka’s ongoing strategy, built on a highly optimized architecture for delivering WAN optimization and CDN services. Aryaka’s intelligent and private network ensures less than 20 milliseconds of last mile latency to more than 90 percent of the world’s business users. Aryaka’s POPs are deployed worldwide and located in close proximity to global business hubs including China, Australia, Israel, South America, Singapore, India and across other locations within Asia, Europe and North America.

“As an organization, we are constantly looking for ways to help our customers reduce the costs and challenges of global network reach and management,” said Ajit Gupta, founder and CEO of Aryaka. “Each of our POPs is located to meet the connectivity requirements of business users across the globe. We now have a presence in 6 continents with customers in over 50 countries and 280 cities worldwide. The POPs in Japan and South Africa will enhance our network optimization and accessibility capabilities in those regions, allowing us to better serve global enterprises.”

As the world’s second-largest developed economy, Japan is a hub of innovation and development with the presence of most of the world’s largest companies. It is the world’s third largest manufacturer of automobiles, has the largest electronic goods industry, and is often ranked among the world’s most innovative countries based on global patent filings.

South Africa’s export-based economy is the largest and most-developed in Africa, with Johannesburg being its economic capital. The country is rich in natural resources and has emerged over the last decade as one of the world’s most attractive locations for foreign investment and new trade. The country continues to attract more local offices of global corporations.

As these economies continue to grow, so does their requirement for a world class, secure and reliable network, especially in verticals like manufacturing, energy and logistics. Aryaka’s integrated WAN optimization and CDN solutions built for the enterprise offer a superior alternative to unreliable IPVPN connectivity, dedicated MPLS links, costly WAN optimization appliances and traditional CDN solutions. Aryaka locates the network near the customer to connect and optimize their access to data and applications as well as cloud services worldwide.

Within just a few weeks of deploying the POPs, Aryaka has seen a huge surge in deployment of customer sites to these POPs. Immediate deployment timelines and seamless integration as a full mesh into existing WAN deployments have been the biggest drivers for this interest.
