Aryaka Networks
It integrates nicely with AWS (in regions other than China). The provisioning support is pretty good.

Bigleaf is great for getting good performance out of two mediocre ISPs. Bigleaf is great for getting the combined bandwidth of two or more ISPs without having to subscribe to higher tiers with the ISP. I can't imagine Bigleaf would do much good for a business with only one ISP. Reporting with Bigleaf is helpful in documenting any issues with an ISP - I can show an ISP performance history if we experience a problem.

Aryaka Networks
  • Relatively easily to implement

Bigleaf Networks
  • Does not add a security layer - We have our own security layer and did not want an additional one.
  • Combines bandwidth from multiple ISPs to provide a bigger pipe.

Any time we've had a problem, Bigleaf support has been readily available in English. Support seems competent, and when one hardware device failed we were quickly provided with a replacement

Alternatives Considered
Aryaka Networks
We didn't really evaluate many other SDWAN providers as very few operate inside of China. Our alternative was to build VPN connectivity ourselves.

Bigleaf Networks
Bigleaf doesn't add a security layer. Competitors we looked at all bundled in security from Cisco or Fortinet, and we didn't want to learn another product and have a competing security layer. With Bigleaf we are able to leverage our existing security solution.

  • Bigleaf has dramatically improved our internet uptime and provides metrics to track that.
  • Bigleaf protects our internet performance by balancing ISPs so we don't experience poor performance when one ISP has a problem.
