Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that it has formalized the agreement with AVANT as part of its Partner Program. The partnership will expand Aryaka’s channel business, while allowing AVANT to offer its customers a next-generation WAN that combines enterprise-grade performance and Internet-like simplicity – a private, fast lane to the cloud.
AVANT is a premier distributor of next-generation technologies in the United States. Their massive sub-agent community of telecom sales and consulting professionals have the resources and relationships needed to make the right decisions in communications and IT infrastructure. From complex cloud design to global WAN deployments, AVANT empowers its partners with valuable partner enablement tools, including their Battle Book®, Battle App, engineering bench, strategic consulting and ongoing training.
“We, at Aryaka – ‘the industry’s best kept secret’, give international corporations a real alternative to legacy network infrastructures. Our unique solution allows global companies to stop making compromises with legacy WAN solutions. How is Aryaka going to get the message out? AVANT. We picked AVANT for their leadership in the cloud space and forward-thinking culture. Aryaka’s next-generation technology is positioned to be ‘THE CLOUD WAN’ alternative that enables telecom, applications and infrastructure to all come together in a fast, simple, revolutionary solution,” said Chris Vivian, VP of Global Partner Alliances at Aryaka.
“For many years, companies have been looking for a viable business-grade alternative to costly and cumbersome MPLS infrastructures that can leverage the public internet. As global momentum builds in cloud offerings, companies are looking for an enterprise-class connectivity option to their cloud services. That search is over,” Vivian said.
As enterprise networks evolve in response to megatrends like globalization and cloud services adoption, legacy approaches such as MPLS and CapEx intensive WAN Optimization appliances are no longer adequate. AVANT felt the immediate need for partners to add a new kind of WAN solution to their portfolio, which could guarantee performance and simplicity, and offer business-grade connectivity to all cloud services, without having to invest in expensive equipment, private links, and additional management overhead.
“Aryaka’s WAN as-a-Service offering is an exceptional fit with our carefully curated portfolio of only the most innovative solution providers,” said Ian Kieninger, CEO of AVANT. “The solution enables our partners to future-proof their customers’ WANs, as it combines software-defined WAN technology and a proprietary optimization software stack with global private connectivity; all delivered as a fully managed 24×7 service. With this partnership, we will be able to help our partners leverage globalization and cloud migration to their competitive advantage.”
Since its launch, Aryaka’s Global Partner Alliance Program has been a great success. “A thriving Partner ecosystem is vital to our growth plans and AVANT is a key part of that strategy. We are very excited about how they are helping us capture this unique global network and cloud services market,” Vivian said.
