SD-WAN is winning the day across verticals. Businesses of all shapes are sizes are flocking to this burgeoning technology, from enterprise to SMB and beyond, SD-WAN is providing a gateway to the cloud and enabling companies to conduct business in the digital age.




Today, manufacturing and metal-cutting technology provider Makino selected Aryaka’s (News - Alert) SD-WAN as-a-Service to aid the global corporation’s cloud migration efforts.

Makino possesses a sprawling set of branch offices in Europe, Asia and the America’s the Tokyo-based manufacturer serves customers across verticals, Makino required a solution capable to support its global footprint and better sync operations.

“If one of our employees came in and responded to a call from an end user who needed to order parts, what would happen is if that data transfer wasn’t current, then we could give them bad data,” said Darren Sargent, Infrastructure Engineer, Makino. “We could commit to ordering something that we actually didn’t have and that caused delays in being able to service our customers.”

In specific, Makino is firstly able to make a seamless transition to leveraging more cloud applications, deliver improved video and voice communications for customers and partners as well as a noteworthy enhancement in the performance and speed of synchronization and data transfer.

“With our previous network, it would take between 6 – 7 hours daily to sync up connections between two locations,” said Glenn Hensley, IT Infrastructure Manager at Makino. “With Aryaka’s global SD-WAN solution, it takes just 20 minutes to complete the same task. With Aryaka we were able to get twice the bandwidth for the same cost coupled with a very rapid deployment cycle.”

SD-WAN Expo 2018 put Aryaka’s global network on display, as the convergence of industry leaders offered an exploration into the capabilities of this up and coming technology. The cloud is no passing fad, and there’s no excuse for not embracing all digital transformation has to offer.
