Alibaba Cloud, Aryaka Partner on SD-WAN Solution (HITS)

Alibaba Cloud and wide area network (WAN) specialist Aryaka have teamed up to deliver a fully managed SD-WAN solution to Alibaba customers in China who are looking to extend their reach abroad.

The offering will integrate service-level agreement (SLA) connectivity with security, WAN optimization, SaaS access, last-mile services, and more, and for enterprises outside of Alibaba Cloud’s footprint, will allow for leveraging of Aryaka’s end-to-end global WAN for access into China.

The agreement will also see Alibaba Cloud offer the Aryaka SmartServices portfolio via Alibaba’s International Marketplace, with Alibaba Cloud’s and Aryaka’s joint reseller partner Netbank offering services in China.

“By combining Aryaka’s technology with Alibaba Cloud’s robust network infrastructure, customers will be able to achieve unparalleled application performance through this partnership in China and globally,” said Selina Yuan, president of international business at Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.

Matt Carter, CEO of Aryaka, added: “Alibaba Cloud is the No. 1 public cloud provider in Asia Pacific and China. We are thrilled that Alibaba Cloud has partnered with Aryaka as one of its global networking partners. The combination of the world’s best managed SD-WAN provider and Alibaba Cloud will help deliver a truly Cloud-First WAN to enterprises, modernizing their WANs.”
