Talari unveiled a new cloud solution today that enables organizations to tie their wide area networks (WANs) into the public cloud more easily and securely. The new offering was designed to turn public cloud access links into secure, reliable and manageable points on any WAN.
According to Talari, the solution provides businesses with the control, visibility and oversight they require to trust business-critical applications to the cloud. Business that deploy the solution are able to treat any public cloud location as if it was part of their WAN. That includes applications such as Salesforce.com (CRM), Dropbox and cloud applications running on Amazon Web Services (AWS)—all three of which were specifically mentioned in the announcement.
Talari claims its solution provides some peace of mind, enabling access to applications in the cloud without interruption by network quality issues or failures. It also ensures bandwidth is predictable and data is secure.
It's a big promise, but if it can deliver, it could be a nice feather in the cap of Talari's channel partners, which are bringing its solutions to market. The company expanded its channel sales strategy last month when it hired a new channel sales head.
"With enterprise cloud adoption in its early stage and hybrid WAN models emerging, the market is ready for an intelligent network that delivers service-level assurance," said John Dickey, co-founder and CTO of Talari, in a prepared statement. "Using our adaptive private network technology, Talari will help to seamlessly ease the migration of key applications to the cloud, providing greater peace of mind for service sustainability."
The backbone of the solution is Talari's packet-by-packet adaptive private networking intelligence, which facilitates the aggregation of multiple broadband and/or Amazon Direct Connect links, as well as the continuous measurement and monitoring of each possible path's quality and the adaptation of traffic flows in real time.
