MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Innovative manufacturers leveraging global resources while centralizing their infrastructure are adopting Aryaka's cloud-based WAN optimization and application acceleration solution to speed application response time and achieve productivity gains. They are able to better connect their worldwide engineering teams and save tens of thousands of dollars annually by leapfrogging costly MPLS links and WAN optimization appliances.

By deploying Aryaka's secure WAN optimization delivered-as-a-service, global teams are equipped with faster access to applications, enabling them to collaborate more effectively and exchange information in real-time. Enterprises also gain visibility into their networks so they can sharpen their planning process, add new applications and speed Time-to-Market (TTM) for their products.

Armstrong International
A manufacturer and designer of Intelligent System Solutions for Steam, Air and Hot Water, Armstrong International was challenged with a narrow window for replicating SolidWorks™ ePDM data across four global databases. Because of the large size of their CAD repository, the company's IT department had to run replication within a two-hour nightly window, otherwise the replication would impede the Engineering Department's daily workflow.

Armstrong had a partially deployed MPLS network but application performance was still poor. They could not justify further investment specifically between development teams in India and their U.S. offices. The company also ruled out traditional WAN optimization appliances because they were too costly. With Aryaka, the company was able to accelerate traffic 25X and compress data by 95%. The Aryaka solution also helped to lessen the wait time associated with an on-demand request (called "Get Latest Version") from 21 minutes to less than 4 minutes. This was a significant impact on the throughput of Engineering Change Notices handled by their global Engineering Department.

The solution enabled Armstrong to leverage their existing Internet connection for a fraction of the cost of MPLS -- saving more than $2,000 per month in hard dollars on just the network alone and tens of thousands more in productivity soft-dollars.

Aryaka enables Armstrong to:

  • Reduce SolidWorks PDM response times by 20%
  • Cut CAD file transfer times from 17 minutes to less than 3 minutes- 800% improvement
  • Slash change requests from 70 minutes per request to 3 minutes- 23X improvement
  • Save tens of thousands of dollars annually, compared with MPLS links

A leading provider of IT infrastructure management solutions, Raritan was facing the obstacle of MPLS links that were nearly saturated, preventing the company from layering a desired Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution on top of its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite of applications. Oracle Data Guard replication between its Taipei manufacturing facilities and New Jersey offices was not an efficient process over the company's mix of MPLS links and IP VPN. The company needed a solution that would reduce Oracle Data Guard traffic and free capacity for other applications.

Raritan chose Aryaka's service solution over Riverbed's Steelhead products and other hardware-based WAN optimization solutions. The company also decided not to purchase MPLS circuits due to high cost and the time required for provisioning. The Aryaka solution immediately reduced Raritan's Oracle Data Guard traffic by 70% and quadrupled network capacity providing enough bandwidth to add new applications as planned. The company realized savings of tens of thousands of dollars from lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Aryaka enables Raritan to:

  • Compress Oracle Data Guard traffic by 70%
  • Increase bandwidth capacity 4X
  • Add new Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) applications on top of its ERP system


"Never before has there been such a critical need for manufacturers to communicate with their partners, suppliers and customers in the most efficient way possible. As more companies expand globally and use resources from different economies, they can leverage the Aryaka solution to cut costs and significantly improve time-to-market for their products, without cutting corners."

-Ajit Gupta, Founder, President and CEO of Aryaka

"The Aryaka solution enabled us to do real-time data replication, and our designers didn't have to wait around anymore to get their jobs done. Our engineers can now download large files and also make change requests in less than five minutes. And most importantly, I am no longer at odds with having to face the high costs of buying further fixed-capacity MPLS links."

-Joe Letizia, Global director of Information Technology for Armstrong International

"The Aryaka solution enables me to estimate and determine my capacity for better planning. We saw an immediate increase in the performance of for our ERP applications and data replication. What we like best is the visibility of the MyAryaka portal that shows us much more granular detail than what our MPLS service provider was delivering -- seeing is believing."

-Simon Ku, Manager of Information Technology, North America for Raritan
