ATLANTA, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Asankya, Inc., the application delivery leader for network-intensive applications, announced today that dinCloud has selected Asankya to accelerate cloud storage services. Based in Los Angeles, CA, dinCloud delivers a leading suite of Cloud based services for Cloud Storage and Hosted Virtual Desktops, among other services.
Latency and middle-mile Internet bottlenecks cause large media file transfers to be unacceptably slow, negatively impacting customer aspirations. With the use of Asankya’s RAPID solution, dinCloud is able to significantly increase the throughput of file transfers and thereby deliver a superior cloud storage environment. Asankya’s ability to accelerate encrypted traffic – another critical feature – allows dinCloud to maintain their application security without complex layers of connectivity.
“Being able to transmit large volumes of cloud content and data quickly and efficiently for customers is critical,” explains dinCloud’s Chief Technology Officer, Mike Chase. “We strive to be the innovative leader in the market, so we are constantly enhancing our solutions to meet the current and future requirements of our customers. Asankya has provided a cost-effective cloud Internet connection solution and has allowed us to improve our throughput significantly.”
Matt Ashton, IT Director at CIS Hollywood (a wholly owned affiliate of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group) stated, “The performance of the Asankya RAPID technology was truly amazing, the testing done by dinCloud using 3D media data produced a significantly measurable performance improvement over our standard data transfer methods.”
“Even though dinCloud already has innovative and robust cloud storage solutions, they continue to innovate and improve their offerings,” states Scott Ryan, CEO of Asankya. “We are excited to help dinCloud enhance their cloud storage offering.”
