Global Leader in Packaging Solutions Chooses Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service

Rieke Packaging Systems Saves Time, Money by Dumping MPLS Links and Avoiding Purchasing WAN Optimization Appliances to Connect Its Global Offices

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) -  Aryaka®, the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service, Network as-a-Service, Application Delivery as-a-Service and Cloud Network as-a-Service, today announced that Rieke Packaging Systems, a TriMas Company (NASDAQ: TRS), the global leader in packaging solutions, has deployed Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service to provide better connectivity at lower cost between its globally distributed offices.

Rieke Packaging Systems is headquartered in Indiana and has 13 remote offices spread across Europe, Asia Pacific and Australia. WAN performance issues was affecting employee productivity at Rieke's California and Indiana offices and so Rieke reached out to Aryaka to solve these performance issues. Prior to this Rieke had tried a MPLS-based solution and even increasing their internet bandwidth, but neither solution seemed to solve the performance issues. They also evaluated Riverbed and other WAN Optimization appliance solutions, only to realize that deploying WAN Optimization hardware would not only require high capital expense, but was impractical from a management perspective. 

Rieke engaged with Aryaka via trial and was impressed with the performance improvements that they saw. Remote users experienced substantial improvements in the performance of key applications such as HTTPS, CIFS, Infor Syteline (ERP), VoIP, and SharePoint. Rieke was so impressed with the results that they decided to get rid of their expensive MPLS links and replace them with the Aryaka solution instead.

"We are experiencing a dramatic improvement in application performance after deploying Aryaka," says Dave Cox, Director of IT, Rieke Packaging Systems. "Application performance issues are now next to zero, something we have not experienced in a long time. The incredible thing is that we are saving money, getting improved application performance, and an intelligent network to meet our business needs. We were able to implement a new connection in a week and the turn up was in hours rather than days/ weeks."

Aryaka solution's benefits to Rieke Packaging Systems include:

  • Up to 45X improvement in TCP connection time
  • Fast deployment
  • End user complaints from remote offices ceased
  • Zero CapEx
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than MPLS plus purchased appliances
  • End-to-end WAN and application visibility

Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service solution packages a dedicated core network with built-in diversity and redundancy based on globally distributed Points of Presence (POPs), coupled with cloud-based technologies. With Aryaka's multi-segment solution, POPs are located near end-user locations. This translates into far fewer congestion problems in "the middle mile" than Internet VPN solutions, and notably better application performance when congestion occurs at the first or last mile versus an appliance solution. Aryaka also offers the MyAryaka customer portal to deliver network-wide visibility for WAN connectivity, as well as application performance and usage across the network, providing centralized end-to-end monitoring.
