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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
Whenever a new technology hits the high points of hype, everyone starts talking about it like it will solve all their business problems. Blockchain is one of those technologies. According to Gartner's latest report on the hype cycle of emerging technologies, blockchain has just passed the peak of their hype cycle curve. If you read the news articles about it, one would think it has taken over the technology world. No disruptive technology is without its challenges and potential impediments that frequently get lost in the hype. The panel will discuss their perspective on what they see as they key challenges and/or impediments to adoption, and how they see those issues could be resolved or mitigated.
