MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - Aryaka (www.aryaka.com), the world's first cloud-based WAN optimization as-a-Service, and Internet Binat, an Israel-based provider of managed services for the corporate sector, today announced that Strauss Water has deployed Aryaka's optimized, intelligent network between its Israel headquarters and worldwide subsidiaries located in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
Strauss Water, part of the Strauss Group and a leading global provider of drinking water purification systems, now successfully conducts video conferencing for interoffice business conversations, replicates data faster between its data center in Israel and remote offices for data protection, and takes full advantage of its investment in its global ERP system for supply chain management and manufacturing. Tapping the cloud-based Aryaka service as a competitive advantage, Strauss Water is achieving increased productivity for its remote teams and significant annual cost savings by avoiding expensive WAN optimization appliances and MPLS solutions.
With new brand initiatives in the UK with Virgin Strauss Water and in China with Haier Strauss Water, it was critical that the company ensure smooth collaboration and interoffice communications. Using the Internet was not good enough as ERP applications and NetApp SnapMirror data replication for disaster recovery protection ran exceedingly slow while video conferencing was stunted by packet loss and jitter.
Strauss Water chose the joint solution from Internet Binat and Aryaka because the cloud solution was up and running in one day without the need for cumbersome construction of local lines and installation of costly, on-premise WAN optimization appliances. Upon connecting to Aryaka's optimized network in the cloud, Strauss Water observed immediate benefits.
"The combination of Internet Binat's infrastructure and Aryaka's WAN optimization as-a-Service provides a stable core network between site locations, enabling Strauss Water to conduct video conferencing and leverage previously unusable WAN applications they had invested in," said Shmulik Haber, CEO of Internet Binat. "The joint solution was deployed within hours, and most importantly, was a superior, scalable alternative to costly appliance and MPLS solutions. I call it 'sophisticated simplicity.'"

- Stable core network between locations for video conferencing
- 52% SnapMirror data reduction
