MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2014) - Aryaka®, the leading 'As-A-Service' provider of WAN Optimization, Network, Application Delivery and Cloud Networks announced today that Flow International Corporation, the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet systems for cutting and cleaning applications, chose Aryaka to improve application performance, reduce latency, cut costs and increase employee productivity between their US and international offices.

As a manufacturer and supplier to major industrial companies from the aerospace, automotive, food and paper industries in 45 countries, it is crucial for Flow International Corporation that business critical applications such as Citrix, CAD and CRM run smoothly between their locations worldwide. Before Flow International looked to Aryaka, their business critical applications were painfully slow, even with costly MPLS and Riverbed appliances deployed. The constant issues with business application performance were particularly difficult to manage for an IT team with global requirements and limited resources.

Flow International Corporation chose to move away from their former solution and deploy Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-service offering. With Aryaka, the company has experienced:

  • Up to 8-10x faster application performance
  • Up to 500% burst over subscribed bandwidth
  • Stable core latency between company locations throughout the world
  • 60-85% data compression, resulting in significant bandwidth savings
  • Integrated Application and Network Visibility through the MyAryaka web portal
  • Fully managed service with 24 x 7 world class support

"The high cost and poor reliability of our MPLS and Riverbed appliances based solution was a major concern for us," said Jason Dickens, Enterprise Infrastructure Manager for Flow International. "Sites took weeks, sometimes months to deploy and the quality of support was very poor. Aryaka's managed-service model perfectly synced with our requirements and their support is light years ahead of the competition. The overall cost of the Aryaka model is much lower and we no longer have the long term and complex contracts we had before. The results since we put our entire global network on Aryaka have been outstanding. Aryaka can bring up a new site within a couple of days, the application performance is much improved when compared to that of our older MPLS and Riverbed based solution, and Aryaka's managed service with a five minute SLA for support is world class."
