Aryaka pursues enterprise-grade GenAI network acceleration opportunity

June 18, 2024
The SASE provider provides business customers with a platform to access AI workloads.

Aryaka has launched Aryaka AI>Perform, a GenAI network acceleration solution delivered on its Unified SASE as a service platform.

AI>Perform is available now for early-access customers and will be generally available in the third quarter. 

As the first offering from the new Aryaka AI> Initiative, AI>Perform is designed to enable businesses to securely leverage AI across their global networks by delivering networking, security, and observability services for these applications.

Overcoming network limitations

The rise of AI workloads continues to scale.

Take Nvidia. The company reported in its first quarter 2025 earnings report that its data center revenue, which is mainly driven by AI workloads, grew by 427% year-over-year.

However, Aryaka noted that enterprises face a crucial challenge: having the proper networking and security elements to deliver these workloads efficiently and securely at scale. For example, large language models (LLMs) require massive data transfers, potentially straining network capacity and hindering business delivery.

Making matters worse, traditional networks need to be improved in their ability to handle this, leading to unreliable and risky data movement.

This becomes even more pressing as enterprises adopt next-gen AI applications known as Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG). RAG is a technique for enhancing the accuracy and reliability of generative AI models by fetching facts from external sources.

Enterprises now connect LLMs to their legacy applications and data stored across their networks. These applications will connect large language models (LLMs) that can respond to various human queries.  

"RAG will raise the bar on the converged networking and security requirements needed for these applications to deliver value to organizations," said Renuka Nadkarni, Chief Product Officer at Aryaka. 

A global solution

A big focus of Aryaka AI>Perform is addressing the need for enterprises to support global AI workloads. This will be especially important for multinational companies with properties in multiple countries and regions.

The new platform offers various benefits to enterprises:

Performance: By leveraging a private, low-latency backbone, Aryaka's global core network, the Aryaka Zero Trust WAN, ensures optimal network performance. Aryaka said this backbone provides predictable performance for AI workloads, regardless of the user's location, ensuring that AI algorithms can process data rapidly and deliver real-time insights and deliverables.

Global Reach: Enterprises often operate across multiple regions, making it essential to have a solution that can deliver AI workloads efficiently worldwide. Aryaka's global Points of Presence (PoPs) and optimized network routes ensure that AI workloads can be accessed anywhere.

Scalability and Flexibility: Aryaka's cloud-based single-pass architecture, Aryaka OnePASS allows organizations to expand their AI initiatives without worrying about infrastructure constraints.

Simplified Management: Managing the global delivery of AI applications can be complex, requiring extensive expertise and resources. Aryaka simplifies this process with a centralized management portal (MyAryaka) that provides visibility and control over the entire network and security infrastructure. Enterprises can monitor performance and troubleshoot issues in real time through intuitive dashboards and analytics, ensuring optimal and high-performing AI workload delivery.
