Talari Networks Secures $10 Million for WAN Virtualization

Talari Networks, a start-up based in Cupertino, California, raised $10 million in a second round of institutional funding for its enterprise WAN virtualization technology.

Talari Networks' Adaptive Private Networking (APN) technology combines network bandwidth from the public Internet with RAID-like methods. It combines diverse sources of bandwidth and end-to-end algorithms to apply dynamic, real-time, per-packet traffic engineering. By continually measuring loss, latency and jitter, APN adapts to variations in network conditions virtually instantly to ensure reliable, predictable application performance using all of the available bandwidth. The company claims its Mercury line of Adaptive Private Networking appliances delivers a network with 30 to 100 times the bits per dollar, ongoing WAN costs reduced by 40% to 90%, and greater reliability than existing corporate WANs.

The new funding was led by Silver Creek Ventures with existing backers Menlo Ventures and private investors also participating.
