Network11’s fully managed multi-cloud connectivity solution provides a fast and cost-effective means for connecting to the most widely used IaaS or SaaS providers. Aryaka’s solution is built from 4 main components: the Aryaka Network Access Point (ANAP), our global private network of 30+ PoPs, the MyAryaka reporting and configuration portal, and direct routes to leading IaaS and SaaS providers.
Enterprises are in the midst of a major Information Technology (IT) transformation driven by innovations like cloud, virtualization and Internet of Things (IoT). As an increasing number of applications and workloads migrate to the cloud, enterprises are faced with the challenge of upgrading their wide area networks (WAN). Today, most enterprises depend on MPLS routers for their WAN, a technology that was first introduced in the 1990s. Legacy MPLS networks are woefully inadequate in dealing with the sheer volume and variety of traffic that traverses modern enterprise networks. A badly designed WAN can degrade the performance of cloud-based applications and adversely affect the end user experience.
Network11’s cloud connectivity solution caters to the needs of both IaaS as well as SaaS rollouts. While IaaS connectivity is addressed using private connections (i.e. AWS Direct Connect, Azure ExpressRoute) or IPSec tunnels, SaaS connectivity and application performance is addressed using Aryaka’s unique Virtual Office (VO) solution.
A VO is just what it implies. Instead of a physical site, it is virtual, handing off traffic from the Aryaka PoP to the nearest SaaS entry point. The customer’s SaaS traffic thus traverses the Aryaka backbone from the edge to a SaaS co-location point, ensuring application performance.
How We Differ
In contrast to the Aryaka solution, traditional connectivity solutions rely on either IPSec through the Internet or private MPLS links, neither of which address the cloud connectivity challenge.
ARYAKA MULTI-CLOUD CONNECTIVITY ARCHITECTURE
Aryaka’s fully managed multi-cloud connectivity solution provides a fast and cost-effective means for connecting to the most widely used IaaS or SaaS providers. Aryaka’s solution is built from 4 main components: the Aryaka Network Access Point (ANAP), our global private network of 30+ PoPs, the MyAryaka reporting and configuration portal, and direct routes to leading IaaS and SaaS providers.
The Aryaka Network Access Point (ANAP) is a cloud-managed and provisioned device.
Private Layer 2 links from top service providers worldwide, connecting 30 PoPs located on 6 continents.
Self-service customer and partner portal for centralized configuration, management and reporting.
Direct connectivity to leading IaaS/PaaS providers and co-located access to SaaS providers.
ARYAKA – CLOUD CONNECTIVITY USE CASES
Aryaka’s cloud connectivity solution can be used in a variety of deployment scenarios be it IaaS connectivity, SaaS connectivity and application performance acceleration, multi-cloud connectivity etc.
Cloud connectivity is an important challenge that organizations must overcome for a successful cloud transformation. Ignoring this aspect of cloud transformation can adversely affect application performance and therefore end user experience.
Aryaka’s fully managed SD-WAN service simplifies the cloud connectivity challenge by leveraging the of its global layer 2 PoP network, fully-featured SD-Branch hardware (ANAPs), the MyAryaka self-serve portal, and direct routes to leading IaaS providers.
As an SD-WAN offering Aryaka offers better reliability and QoS compared to the public internet, while it is more flexible than private MPLS networks. However, Aryaka’s real advantage lies in combining fully managed services with leading SD-WAN technology and a private Layer 2 network with presence in over 30 locations worldwide.
