The company recently announced that Gartner (News - Alert), one of the leading industry analysts firms has placed Aryaka in its 2011 report of Cool Vendors in Enterprise Communications and Network Services. This report from Gartner highlights vendors with innovative approaches and technologies and has been authored by Gartner analysts Jay Lassman, Steve Blood, Bern Elliot, Mark Fabbi, Geoff Johnson, Robert F. Mason, Neil Rickard and Ted Chamberlin.
According to Gartner, for a company to get selected as a cool vendor it must offer technologies or solutions that are innovative, enabling users to do things they couldn't do before; impactful, which means it must have have or will have an impact on business (not just technology for the sake of technology); and intriguing which means it must have caught Gartner's attention or curiosity in approximately the past six months.
The Gartner report, which was released on April 5, 2011, recommends that organizations who have globally distributed locations should seriously consider WAN optimization services in order to eliminate the need for distributed WAN optimization appliances.”
In a release, Ajit Gupta, founder and CEO of Aryaka said that, “We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner further confirmation that our vision of a cloud-based solution resonates with the top minds in the industry. Aryaka was architected from the ground up to make WAN optimization simple and affordable for companies of all sizes, in all geographies and at a significantly lower cost than traditional appliance-based solutions. We're pleased to be acknowledged by Gartner for our unique contribution to the industry and the emerging enterprise.”
