MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - BTS has selected Aryaka® to improve WAN performance across BTS' globally distributed enterprise. BTS is the global leader in strategy alignment and implementation through the use of business simulations and experiential learning programs. BTS' overseas employees often struggled to access applications over the WAN. Applications like FTP, SharePoint and subversion (SVN) don't perform well over congested public networks.

BTS is a globally distributed enterprise with 21 locations around the globe. Their employees in Mumbai (India) had trouble using SSL VPNs to access SVN in the Philadelphia office. BTS had already deployed expensive Riverbed WAN optimization equipment to help accelerate traffic, but minus a stable network between sites, application performance was still unacceptable. BTS investigated adding dedicated Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) infrastructure, but balked at the high cost and excessively long deployments times. Moreover, BTS understood that upgrading Riverbed's WAN Optimization to all of its locations would not cost-effectively address the company's long term goals and would not overcome the issues its employees were facing.

After due diligence, BTS eventually chose Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service to solve their application performance issues and enhance their employee productivity. By choosing Aryaka, BTS shortened the deployment time from months to a couple of days, and thereby saved thousands of dollars on hardware costs alone.

With Aryaka, up to 90% of traffic is now optimized, enabling key applications like Subversion (SVN) to run up to 85% faster over the Aryaka core network.

"Our employees in India needed fast SVN application response time at our new office in Mumbai to access resources in Philadelphia and ensure real-time version control," said Ranjit Pookkottil, Director IT, BTS. "We were turned off by the high cost of MPLS and the length of time required to pull in the circuits. We chose Aryaka because of the quick speed to turn up, ease of use and the granular visibility provided by the web-based MyAryaka portal. Our SVN application now runs 85% faster over Aryaka, and we have 90% optimized traffic over the network."

Aryaka benefits to BTS include:

  • 85% faster subversion (SVN) application response time

  • 90% optimized traffic over Aryaka core network

  • 210% burst over subscribed bandwidth

  • Stable core latency between locations

  • Cost effective alternative to MPLS/Riverbed boxes

  • Speed to turn up, ease of use and visibility

  • 24/7 global support

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 technology. 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 a unique customer portal, MyAryaka, to deliver network-wide visibility for WAN connectivity, as well as application performance and usage across the network, providing centralized end-to-end monitoring.

"Having companies like BTS in our customer portfolio further strengthens our position as a Visionary in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization controllers" said Ajit Gupta, CEO of Aryaka Networks. "BTS understands that simplified networking and enhanced employee productivity would play a pivotal role in maintaining its leadership position in strategy execution market. They chose Aryaka to cut costs and avoid investing in expensive and complex appliances and dedicated links."
