Apex CoVantage Improves Remote Desktop Performance by 20X With Aryaka

Aryaka®, the leading ‘As-A-Service’ provider of WAN OptimizationNetworkApplication Delivery and Cloud Networks, today announced that Apex CoVantage, a global provider of content solutions and smart grid technology and services, selected Aryaka’s content delivery network (CDN) for IP Application Delivery to improve response time for its globally distributed user base.

Headquartered in the U.S., Apex CoVantage owns and operates global facilities that directly employ nearly 2,500 people worldwide. Because its global workforce is constantly collaborating across locations, Apex needed a strong IT infrastructure to support connectivity. Before choosing Aryaka, a number of hardware-based solutions were evaluated, but later dismissed due to cost and difficulty with deployment.

Aryaka’s CDN provides accelerated, predictable access to centrally located enterprise IP applications, such as RDP, FTP and Citrix for remote employees, mobile workers and partners that don’t reside within the boundaries of a wide area network (WAN). Utilizing a dedicated private core network based on globally distributed points of presence (POPs), it provides reliable access for enterprise users, with faster connections for improved application performance. Aryaka has designed and implemented a global DNS platform with multi-segment TCP optimization stack that is optimized across the first, middle and last mile, allowing for superior connectivity, performance as well as upload and download throughput, especially across long distances.

Apex CoVantage experienced the following benefits with the Aryaka deployment:

  • 20X improvement in application response time for RDP
  • No Hardware deployment – Zero CapEx and fully managed service
  • Quick turn up – hours, rather than months required by hardware-based options
  • World class 24/7 Support

“We were looking at ways in which we could improve RDP performance and reduce network latency,” said Ramnarayan Prasad, system administrator at Apex CoVantage. “The traditional appliance based solutions are very expensive and difficult to deploy. With Aryaka, we were up and running in a few hours and saw a 20X increase in RDP performance, saving us both time and money — and all this without the hassle of deploying appliances.”
