MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2016) - Aryaka today announced its selection as a finalist for Interop Las Vegas' 2016 Best of Interop Awards in the SDN category alongside Cisco and VMware. The Best of Interop Awards recognize exhibitors for innovation and technological advancements in 10 core areas of IT. Award winners will be announced at Interop Las Vegas 2016, held May 2-6 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
"We are honored to be selected as a finalist for the 2016 Best of Interop Award," said Gary Sevounts, Aryaka's Chief Marketing Officer. "Aryaka is seeing phenomenal growth and customer traction with its latest SD-WAN functionality. Being nominated as a finalist in the SDN category this year further validates Aryaka as a primary innovator and leader in the software-defined networking space."
In addition to being an award finalist, Aryaka is also showcasing its new SD-WAN Ultra service and Software-Defined Network Platform at Interop Las Vegas, one of the industry's most-respected independent technology events for modern IT and networking professionals.
Aryaka's SD-WAN Ultra is the first fully integrated SD-WAN solution that combines a global private network, WAN Optimization, and cloud/SaaS acceleration to deliver enhanced application performance, reduced capital expenditures, and simplified network operations at branch offices, all as a fully managed service.
Aryaka's new offering addresses the "Achilles' heel" of SD-WAN solutions -- inconsistent latencies and jitter -- associated with their dependence on the public Internet for transport of mission-critical voice, video, data, and application traffic that is vital to business execution. It is the first and only SD-WAN solution that enables enterprises to solve application performance issues without having to invest heavily in legacy MPLS technology.
Aryaka's Software-Defined Network Platform provides end-to-end enterprise-grade connectivity, application acceleration, and other network services to globally distributed enterprises. This network platform has been designed from the outset to reduce complexity and cost, provide high performance for cloud services -- even in geographies like Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa -- and deliver Application Acceleration as just one of a range of network services that can be provisioned on-demand.
"Congratulations to Aryaka and all Best of Interop finalists on the success of their new products and positive impact on the IT community," said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. "These are the types of visionary solutions that define the future of networking. We're excited for Interop attendees to be able to interact with these products first-hand in the Expo."
After a thorough review of all finalists, an expert judging panel will announce the winners on May 4, 12:00-12:45 pm on the Expo floor.
