Aryaka Gets Peach of an Account

Aryaka has picked up a showcase account: the $250 million-a-year Calypso Technology

Aryaka has picked up a showcase account.

This one isn’t shy like so many others. It’s willing to talk about it. It’s the $250 million-a-year Calypso Technology, which provides financial institutions and corporate treasuries with an integrated trading, risk and processing platform for derivatives and treasury products.

Calypso’s picked what many regard as a disruptive technology.

Its 700 people are spread across 18 offices across the globe. That, of course, was the problem. It needed to keep its folks in touch and they were complaining about slow application response times.

To improve its network, Calypso considered going the pricey route and putting resources closer to its users or getting a fully meshed Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network with WAN optimization appliances.

Neither solution was utterly appealing. But things had gotten critical, according to Brad Taylor, Calypso’s global director of technology operations, and the company figured it made better sense to go with a service model. So it deployed Aryaka’s intelligent network since it could be deployed in minutes rather than months.

It turned on its offices in North America, Europe and India one-by-one in a month after being reassured by a proof-of-concept in seven days. It found that Aryaka resolved its issues with latency, bandwidth scaling and sharing large files over long distances as a service.

Applications including SCP over SSH, HTTP, HTTPS reportedly run as much as 20 times faster on Aryaka than on costly and complex WAN optimization appliances. Subversion (SVN) source code checkout runs 13 times faster. Its widgetry can burst to 140% of subscribed bandwidth on Aryaka and, it says, it now gets stable core latency between locations resulting in a better end-user experience.

Calypso saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by not investing in more data centers or a MPLS infrastructure. Aryaka, which has in mind to become a $100 million company, has a potential market of 10,000 mid-market companies. It’s got $54 million in venture capital.

CloudEXPO Stories
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interactively to engage with the audience.

ShieldX's CEO and Founder, Ratinder Ahuja, believes that traditional security solutions are not designed to be effective in the cloud. The role of Data Loss Prevention must evolve in order to combat the challenges of changing infrastructure associated with modernized cloud environments. Ratinder will call out the notion that security processes and controls must be equally dynamic and able to adapt for the cloud. Utilizing four key factors of automation, enterprises can remediate issues and improve their security posture by maximizing their investments in legacy DLP solutions. The factors include new infrastructures opening up, public cloud, fast services and appliance models to fit in the new world of cloud security.
