Talon Delivers High-Performance Branch Storage Caching with Simplified Deployment, Management and Flexibility on Citrix CloudBridge

Mount Laurel, NJ – February 11, 2014 – Talon, the leading provider of Microsoft™ File Aware application acceleration and storage caching solutions for branch office infrastructure, today announced that Citrix® and Citrix Ready™ Partner Talon will deliver Talon’s FAST™ solution as part of the Citrix CloudBridge™ CSX solution.

Jointly tested and validated, the FAST™ and CloudBridge™ solutions combined provide today’s branch offices with scalable and reliable application performance along with business collaboration across distributed workforce environments. Designed for Microsoft™ File Server environments, the solution enables full-scale branch office consolidation and eliminates performance bottlenecks with large files. The solution also enables customers to leverage a high-performance WAN optimization solution that will increase their network and application performance, visibility and real-time traffic monitoring.

“As enterprise IT evolves to provide a better user experience while still offering the highest level of network performance, being able to deliver a cloud services delivery model to branch locations becomes increasingly important," said Chalan Aras, Vice President and GM, CloudBridge Product Group, Citrix. "Citrix is helping move the industry forward by growing WAN Op from being a stand-alone technology to one that provides this cloud services delivery model. By integrating the new CloudBridge technology with Talon’s FAST™ solution, branch office locations will reap the benefit of a powerful combination of storage caching and critical branch office services in a single footprint.”

Citrix CloudBridge™ enables a rich and diverse set of Citrix® and third-party applications and services to run seamlessly inside the network infrastructure. The CloudBridge™ CSX solution is the industry’s first to integrate best-of-breed applications into the network infrastructure, enabling organizations to deliver differentiated services, operational simplicity and cost savings, while proactively addressing ever-changing business needs. Today, one of the biggest challenges distributed branch offices face is the evolution of consolidation and virtualized infrastructure, and still maintaining the responsiveness to the business user needs. Many solutions have tried to create efficient file sharing and collaboration, but lose the ability to guarantee a high quality user experience without degradation.

Today, one of the biggest challenges distributed branch offices face is the evolution of consolidation and virtualized infrastructure, and still maintaining the responsiveness to the business user needs. Many solutions have tried to create efficient file sharing and collaboration, but lose the ability to guarantee a high quality user experience without degradation. “Networked applications are at the core of every organization today,” said Shirish Phatak, CEO, Talon. “We believe FAST™ delivered on the CloudBridge™ will simplify and consolidate IT infrastructures, deliver tighter integration capabilities than proprietary solutions and, with the addition of the CloudBridge platform, we can ensure all applications are accelerated over any WAN. For Talon, the Citrix relationship is a keystone toward fulfilling customer demand for optimizing their networks on a platform of their choice.”

Implementing a Talon FAST™ optimization solution means higher end user satisfaction, reduced operational costs, streamlined business operations and increased productivity all without an expensive WAN bandwidth upgrade. Additionally, the Cloud Bridge™ based solution enables integration simplicity through a common architecture and enables remote management and monitoring of the branch office.
