Alternatives Considered

Aryaka SmartConnect

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

Exinda

Exinda was a good balance between cost and capability. We replaced an aging Packetshaper infrastructure with Exinda

Return on Investment

Aryaka SmartConnect

  • Enabled us to deploy infrastructure into new regions quickly
  • Cost of Aryaka connections (especially in China) is excessive
Jeff Stockamp | TrustRadius Reviewer

Exinda

  • Minimize bandwidth expenditures by prioritizing the traffic we care about and controlling the traffic we do not care about.
