HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

WAN-optimisation-in-the-cloud provider Aryaka has added mobile portal access to its network.

Unleashed on the world at Interop, the MyAryaka portal has a simple enough proposition: since systems administrators are expected to be able to tell their bosses what's going on even in their downtime, why not make the ability to look at the network a bit more mobile than it used to be.

As the company's Sonal Puri explained to The Register, it's also in line with Aryaka's mid-market focus. If a business is large enough to buy its own international MPLS links, it's almost certainly bought its own high-end network management software.

Aryaka's pitch, Puri said, has always been to smaller companies which might have offices in more than one country but not the scale of an international finance giant. Such companies are traditionally the customers of managed network providers (either carriers or their resellers).

Rather than pitch itself merely as another managed international network, however, the company created a novel differentiator by combining its carrier relationships with WAN optimisation – in its network rather than as something the customer has to deploy by purchasing appliances.

As long as a location can get a connection (either private or as an Internet VPN) to an Aryaka location, it gets both the international network and the optimisation (something of a virtuous circle: the customer gets to save on traffic costs, and so does Aryaka since it's a customer of the upstream carriers).

“The biggest problem today is getting traffic across oceans,” Puri told The Register.

As for the latest announcement, the main characteristic of MyAryaka is that it's not an app, but a mobile portal. It provides a simplified overview of network an application performance, with drill-down to the kind of details customers would expect (link statistics, application statistics, latency, data reduction performance and so on, associated with either logical or physical paths). ®
