With entry pricing of under $150/site, Aryaka delivers a more comprehensive set of managed service capabilities compared to alternatives including application optimization, network security, multi-cloud connectivity, and cloud-based observability and control, all supported by lifecycle services management. Aryaka's world-class managed service experience - trusted by large enterprises and Fortune 100 companies worldwide for over a decade – is now tailored to SMEs, so they no longer must choose between affordability, performance, and ease of use when adopting SD-WAN and SASE solutions.
SMEs face several challenges when it comes to networking and security, including limited budgets, a lack of skilled IT resources, and a need for operational simplicity. Based on its global private backbone, Aryaka's solutions offer an industry-unique approach to networking and security that is cost-effective, resilient, and easy to manage, helping SMEs as they increasingly adopt managed services. Aryaka combines its in-house technology with a global managed service, eliminating the vendor-provider finger-pointing that can negatively impact business outcomes.
"As a customer-centric business, Aryaka both understands the specific networking and security challenges that enterprises of all sizes face and actively takes steps to deliver products and services that address those challenges," said Dennis Monner, Chief Commercial Officer of Aryaka. "No matter if 10 or 10,000 users depend on Microsoft 365, Salesforce, or access workloads in a cloud to be productive and protected from security threats, one bad experience is one too many, and SMEs deserve a first-class service experience equal to large enterprises and multi-national companies while meeting their budgetary needs. Our revamped offerings bring our highly regarded agile deployment at an affordable price point to SMEs."
As a channel-led company, Aryaka empowers its partner community with its award-winning Aryaka Accelerate Partner Program.

We strongly believe this is a win-win-win for SMEs, channel partners, and us."

Wanclouds, a leading multi-cloud SaaS and managed service provider, today expanded the availability of its Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution across all Virtual Machines (VMs). By expanding beyond Kubernetes and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) resources, Wanclouds now offers all-inclusive backup and recovery for Linux and Windows-based virtual servers and user data. With the new capabilities, Wanclouds provides comprehensive multi-cloud backup and restore solutions across regions and clouds.
The Wanclouds DRaaS agent works within KVM, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V environments to provide live snapshot backups without disrupting the production environment. Developers don’t have to put environments into rescue mode or stop services; the agent simply works behind the scenes to take a hard snapshot. The snapshot captures a point-in-time copy of the VM, which is a much quicker process than a full backup. Moreover, the user has the flexibility to take a backup of the data without the full image of the VM and restore it on-demand across regions. All backups are performed securely and stored in an encrypted format in the customer’s object store.
“Regulations such as GDPR, PCI, and HIPAA are making it increasingly important for organizations to back up data that is vulnerable to cyber threats, hardware failures, or human error,” said Faiz Khan, CEO of Wanclouds. “Unfortunately, small and midsize enterprises looking to stay compliant have been historically underserved by legacy disaster recovery options that are cost-prohibitive and resource-intensive. Wanclouds disaster recovery as a service gives every organization a simple and effective disaster recovery option to protect mission-critical data, ensure business continuity, and provide instant scalability across hybrid clouds.”
Wanclouds’ DRaaS is enabled through its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+, which provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting hybrid cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds customers can leverage VPC+ for disaster recovery to back up all their VM and Kubernetes resources. They can restore it across different regions, physical servers, and clouds such as AWS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and IBM Cloud.
DRaaS is a reimagined approach to traditional disaster recovery strategies and eliminates the barriers for businesses seeking affordable, reliable, and compliant disaster recovery approaches. By offering disaster recovery ‘as a service’, Wanclouds manages on-demand backups for the servers or clusters businesses need and restores them instantly when needed. Instead of needing to allocate millions upfront to build and sustain disaster recovery infrastructure, companies can pay a fraction of the monthly cost for protecting their current servers and clusters.
Specific features of Wanclouds Multi-Cloud Disaster Recovery as a Service include:
Sign up and create backups via a few simple clicks
Infrastrastructure-wide snapshots that can be restored on-demand - VPC Configurations, Design, Kubernetes, Data, Virtual Machines
Flexibility to schedule backups on any timeline
Restore on-demand across clouds and regions from backed-ups
Backups are stored within the customer cloud-object store and are fully encrypted
Visualize infrastructure design and track consumption
On-demand views of disaster recovery spending with detailed consumption reports
Subscribers can take advantage of this new comprehensive backup and recovery option alongside Wanclouds' Cost Optimization as a Service (COaaS) solution for just $9.99 per resource. The offer is all-inclusive of DRaaS VMs, VPCs, and Kubernetes for one year, enabling users to unlimited backup configurations and restore them on demand.
“We understand that IT leaders are being asked to do more with less in the current market,” added Khan. “This blended solution enables them to address two of their top concerns for 2023 – cloud cost optimization and fully compliant backup – at an unbeatable price.”
Wanclouds is a leading multi-cloud SaaS solution and managed service provider. It helps enterprises with cloud deployments, migrations, backups, and cost-efficient cloud infrastructure optimization. The company’s Cloud Cost Optimization as a service (COaaS), Multi-Cloud Migration as a Service (MaaS), and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) cloud offerings reduce the financial investment and remove the technical complexities that halt or delay businesses from migrating on-premise to the cloud, moving across clouds, or setting up backup and restore protection. Its SaaS-based automation suite VPC+ provides a single pane of glass for managing and protecting multi-cloud environments through a centralized cross-cloud solution. Wanclouds is an AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud partner headquartered in Santa Clara, CA.

StorMagic®, solving the world’s edge data problems, today announced continued momentum with manufacturing end users with the addition of two new Germany-based customers. StorMagic SvSAN is a simple, two-node virtual SAN that manages data and its associated applications, to ensure customers’ main objective – productivity.
“Manufacturers require IT systems that deliver built-in redundancy and high availability to ensure continuous operations and, ultimately, productivity to keep their businesses running,” said Bruce Kornfeld, chief marketing and product officer, StorMagic. “SvSAN eliminates single points of failure and downtime to keep factories and plants operational and efficient.”
StorMagic ensures production uptime through high availability, reliability and performance, at a low cost, and is helping two German manufacturers in this endeavor.
WST previously used DataCore SANsymphony to store application data from various databases, file services, and telecommunication systems. Mounting costs and inadequate performance as the volume of data increased led them to review all-flash disk systems at two of their production facilities. SvSAN was selected due to its ability to support all the applications required at these sites with ease of use, minimal hardware requirements and high uptime.
“WST was able to significantly reduce costs and add 100 percent uptime between our two datacenters by moving to StorMagic SvSAN,” said Alexandra Körner, head of IT, WST Präzisionstechnik GmbH. “We’ve also been able to eliminate vendor lock-in thanks to SvSAN’s compatibility with all storage types, hardware and hypervisors. Our future costs have been significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, and budgets are now much more predictable, and easier to plan.”
Witholz GmbH previously used a physical SAN for data processing and management in its two datacenters. The company urgently needed a solution that provided high availability to store application data from its entire IT environment. Witholz found that StorMagic SvSAN was the ideal solution as it was very easy to install and use, and offered the highest performance for the price.
“StorMagic SvSAN is a ‘set and forget’ solution that delivers the best price for performance point in today’s market, and is an ideal fit for every small to medium-sized enterprise," said Matthias Böhler, CEO, Witholz GmbH. “SvSAN allowed us to maximize our budget and achieve 100 percent uptime, which lets us sleep more soundly at night.”
StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. StorMagic’s Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere. StorMagic’s storage, surveillance and security products are flexible, robust, easy to use and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.
