EchoFirst Chooses Aryaka Over MPLS for Fast, Affordable VoIP Deployment

Maker of Revolutionary Solar Energy System Seamlessly Connects California Headquarters With Customer Care Teams in India

MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Aryaka® (www.aryaka.com), the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service™, Network as-a-Service™, Application Delivery as-a-Service™ and Cloud Network as-a-Service™, today announced that EchoFirst, a manufacturer of next generation hybrid solar panels which produce electricity, hot water, home heating and cooling, selected Aryaka for seamless VoIP calls across oceans and speedy file transfers.

EchoFirst (now a part of SunEdison) is the creator of Echo, a revolutionary new solar energy system that delivers twice the energy of a basic solar electric system. The company reviewed solutions to connect their Fremont, California headquarters with their call center in Mumbai, India. As a startup, EchoFirst wanted to ensure smooth connectivity while protecting their precious capital to support their core business of making energy systems.

"We found a lot of issues with VoIP -- data packet loss, latency, echo and the quality of voice. MPLS would take 2-3 months to implement and the cost was something we did not want to take on," said Sasan Vossoughi, IT Director, EchoFirst. "Since going live with Aryaka, we haven't had any issues and the data packet exchange rates have been good. Also, with Aryaka, we basically avoided the cost and the long implementation time associated with MPLS. It's quite an impressive solution, and we've been very happy."

Aryaka benefits to EchoFirst include:

  • QoS for dedicated VoIP bandwidth

  • Speed of deployment -- minutes versus months with MPLS

  • Volume reduction for CIFS (28%) and HTTP (54%)

  • 3X bandwidth increase for SSH

Aryaka's solution for VoIP provides the insights needed to prevent network delays that can impact VoIP calls. Aryaka's Quality of Service (QoS) provides control over application layer performance and optimization with five classes of services and the ability to weight, prioritize and reserve bandwidth by application. Aryaka's backbone redundancy provides superior performance and availability for VoIP traffic. In addition, Aryaka can establish and enforce service levels for quality and availability, address latency and throughput issues, jitter and packet loss before they impact end users.

Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's large...
Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production? In his session at DevOps Summit, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, will discuss how to accomplish this and more utilizing technologies such as Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio online, and Application Insights in this demo-heavy session.
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA).

Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water,...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary.
