Eliminating branch office backups with FAST™ [Video]

by Talon on July 09, 2015

For a branch office to operate effectively, its employees need to be able to share and access corporate data freely. Unfortunately, many of the most common strategies businesses use to achieve this goal are painful or less than optimal. Branch office backups are time-consuming while also using up a huge amount of storage space. Alternatively, some firms only back up essential data at each branch, but this creates problems when workers need to access older or less commonly used information.

Talon FAST™ is the solution to help you solve this challenge, allowing you to fully centralize your branch office file storage in one secured location. With CloudFAST™ Intelligent File Caching, end users can access all central files, but only the active data is actually cached locally. This improves performance while eliminating the need for local backups.

At the same time, FAST™ software helps you centralize data to reduce duplicate versions of files and guarantee file integrity. Additionally, by consolidating branch office file servers, IT managers and administrators can focus on more important IT matters and continue to further simplify IT administration by reducing storage and infrastructure footprint at any location.
