December 9, 2021
introduced “all-in-one” SD-WAN and secure access service edge (SASE) offerings
for multiple enterprise segments to accelerate cloud adoption and increase
Aryaka today debuted a global L3 private core to supplement its best-in-class global L2 private core, all interconnected to the company’s nearly 40 high-performance points of presence (POPs). This technology, called Aryaka FlexCore, allows customers to map their sites to the private core of choice, based on performance or cost considerations, as well as criticality of sites and applications
Aryaka also announced AppAssure, a software capability that delivers deep deterministic visibility, observability, and control to 3500+ applications
FlexCore and AppAssure are available at no additional cost to customers.
Using FlexCore as its underlying architecture, Aryaka today also introduced the “EZ” and “Pro” product lines for its new managed SASE and expanded SD-WAN offerings.
New announcements include:
Aryaka SmartConnect Pro: Managed SD-WAN optimized for performance, uses the L2 private core and easy consumption model, geared for mid-to-large enterprises that require high performance networking and global application predictability
Aryaka SmartConnect EZ: New managed SD-WAN optimized for cost, uses the L3 private core and easy consumption model, geared for small-to-medium enterprises that are looking for something better than the managed SD-WAN and internet they get from traditional telcos at attractive cost points and the ability to move to the SmartConnect Pro or Prime EZ offering in a graceful manner
Breakthrough Pricing and Consumption model
Aryaka has radically simplified the pricing, packaging, quoting and deployment
of SD-WAN and SASE architectures with new “T-shirt” sized pricing models, and
the company has standardized the five most requested service tiers globally.
This will allow easier quoting, bandwidth and service tiering, deployment and
change management, particularly for enterprises with a global business
footprint. At the same time, Aryaka will continue to support a-la-carte pricing
approaches where required, and the company is moving to increasingly simplify
the consumption approach for customers that require agility to supplement its
popular subscription pricing that already incorporates “bursting” and
Aryaka has always been known as the gold standard for support and services
lifecycle with its premier service offering. To address the needs of non-mission
critical sites, Aryaka is now offering a new silver tier. The gold tier offers
customers ultra-low response times, 99.999% service level agreements (SLAs) and
a high touch service cycle that is best suited for high-value sites with
performance-sensitive applications. The silver tier will be available for
cost-sensitive sites and customers with lower response time and support
Aryaka SmartConnect EZ and SmartConnect Pro will be generally available in late Q1 CY 2022. Aryaka Prime EZ is available for qualified Beta deployments starting January 2022, with early orderability targeted for April CY 2022. Aryaka AppAssure will also be generally available for all customers starting January 2022. AppAssure for existing customers will be a no-cost add on.
