Talari debuts "Cloud Connect" SD-WAN

Talari Networks introduced its new "Cloud Connect" solution for hybrid multi-cloud enterprise networks. 

The company says its multi-tenant Cloud Connect platform ensures MPLS-class reliability and Quality of Experience (QoE) when accessing multiple SaaS and public cloud services. The cloud-first approach aims to deliver the same reliability benefits of Talari’s failsafe SD-WAN site-to-site connectivity while bringing cost savings and independence from proprietary carrier lock-in.

Talari’s solution enables cost-effective and efficient high QOE connectivity to Software as a Service (SaaS), Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), cloud service gateways, and managed Network as a Service (NaaS) offerings through a new high-availability connection called a Cloud Conduit.  Underlying the immediate commercial appeal of the Talari Cloud Connect solution, Talari is announcing the support of several leading UCaaS, NaaS and Cloud Service providers (CSPs).  Partners including RingCentral, Evolve IP, Pure IP, Meta Networks and Mode are the first to offer Cloud Connect support.

“Prior to working with RingCentral and Talari, our firm’s cloud services were dependent on separate and expensive dedicated circuits for messaging, voice, video, meetings, and conferencing,” said Jason Kasch, CIO at Structural Group. “The addition of Talari’s new Cloud Connect solution within Ring Central’s Unified Communication offering helps boost service reliability while simplifying cloud management and network troubleshooting.”

“Talari’s customers are heavily invested in complex cloud business applications to securely power everyday operations reliably and at scale,” said Patrick Sweeney, CEO at Talari Networks. “Talari Cloud Connect ensures secure, reliable, predictable access to SaaS and cloud-based network services, without enterprises being forced to bear the burden and complexity of deploying and managing SD-WAN infrastructure in the cloud. Cloud Connect helps enterprises and their cloud services providers deliver full multi-link visibility, reliability and bi-directional QoS while accessing cloud/SaaS-based apps.”

Talari enhances SD-WAN with WAN optimisation, security

Talari Networks, a developer of SD-WAN technology, announced that its latest software release includes WAN optimisation services that run natively in the core platform, and introduced a solution jointly validated with Zscaler, a provider of cloud security, to help companies transition to secure, direct-to-cloud connections.

Integrated WAN optimisation

Talari SD-WAN solutions now provide native support for core WAN optimisation features such as data compression and deduplication of data, in addition to congestion controls. Talari WAN Optimization (WAN-Op) is designed to improve efficiency across the WAN for bulk file-transfer traffic, particularly for data requested by more than one user at the same location. The integration of WAN-Op with the SD-WAN software is designed to help organisations simplify the branch office and realise cost efficiencies.

Secure solution

The solution validated with Zscaler enables Talari SD-WAN edge nodes to transparently forward all Internet traffic to the Zscaler cloud over IPsec tunnels, enabling faster performance, reduced bandwidth requirements and simplified operations. The service will be delivered via Talari's Adaptive Path Networking (APN) software (Release 7.0), available on currently supported physical, virtual and cloud appliances.
The Talari joint solution specifically delivers IPsec tunnels to the Zscaler cloud, with one active tunnel per Talari SD-WAN node, and Talari app-aware routing rules to selectively determine what traffic to forward to Zscaler.

SD-WAN performance enhancements

In addition to secure cloud gateway and WAN-Op services, Talari APN 7.0 provides new performance features for Talari appliances. Talari is expanding the VT800 virtual appliance performance rating to multi-gigabit, allowing the virtual appliance to address data centre as well as small branch location requirements.

In addition, for the cloud new performance enhancements for Azure enable customers decommissioning legacy data centres to utilise cloud servers. Talari is also extending the performance of VT1000 virtual appliances to 1 Gbit/s on VMware ESX to address the performance requirements of mid-market sites.

Talari is also enhancing the performance of its E100, T800, T3010 and T5200 hardware products.

Talari Expands SD-WAN Deployment Options

Talari introduced new Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) appliances -- including both physical and virtual models -- along with an update to its Adaptive Private Networking (APN) operating system.

Some highlights:

  • Talari Virtual Appliance VT500: The Talari Appliance VT500 is a virtual software-only appliance that runs on VMWare’s vSphere. It’s a lightweight edge appliance that enables Talari’s Software Defined THINKING WAN capabilities to be installed by end users on commoditized hardware or embedded in a service offering from another vendor or service provider, giving the enterprise the power of choice in network infrastructure.
  • Talari Appliance T5200: The Talari Appliance T5200 is a new appliance with support for 10G Fiber-Optic interfaces, expanding the deployment scale of data centers that can benefit from Talari’s solution. The Talari Appliance T5200 can serve the role of network controller for a Talari SD-WAN and has multiple high availability options including fail to glass ports, active/active high availability pairs and geographic redundancy.
  • Expanded cloud capabilities in Talari APN 4.4: Talari has also released a new version of its Adaptive Private Networking (APN) software, Talari APN 4.4, which includes several new capabilities to support the increasing adoption of cloud within the enterprise. Customers now have the option of moving the Talari SD-WAN controller to the cloud, simplifying the management of the virtual WAN. Talari APN 4.4 also includes features to expand the control of traffic in the cloud, allowing Talari’s solutions to exercise more granular control over where SaaS and Internet traffic enters and exits the WAN edge.
  • Expanded security options in Talari APN 4.4: With the growing concern around network security, Talari APN 4.4 strengthens the security profile of its SD-WAN deployments with the optional use of third-party certified FIPs compliant IPsec tunnels as the Talari virtual WAN connection. This enhancement is in addition to the 128-bit and 256-bit encryption that is already included in Talari’s SD-WAN solution, enabling Talari customers to choose the best security options for specific applications across a virtual connection overlaid on their existing infrastructure. 

“Rather than force our customers to fit within a proscribed network architecture or vendor-defined deployment model, Talari’s goal is to provide a comprehensive solution that allows companies with a range of network architectures and deployment models to take advantage of the benefits of SD-WAN. This release increases our target market opportunity and will help us maintain and extend our current lead in the SD-WAN market,”said Emerick Woods, president and CEO, Talari.
