Talari Networks Wins Best of Interop 2011–Performance Optimization

San Jose, Calif., May 11, 2011 Talari Networks Inc., the company bringing WAN Virtualization and cloud economics to Enterprise networking, has won Best of Interop 2011 in the Performance Optimization category. The coveted honor recognizes Talari’s role in optimizing network performance while significantly reducing connectivity costs. Best of Interop winners were announced on May 10 at Interop Las Vegas, held May 8-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Best of Interop winner Talari’s Mercury T750 is the new mid-range platform of Talari’s two-ended WAN Virtualization solution, providing business-class (99.99 percent or greater) reliability and predictable performance by using inexpensive public WAN links. As a result, enterprise WAN customers gain 30 to 100 times the bandwidth per dollar, can reduce monthly WAN service costs by 40 percent to 90 percent, and have greater reliability and application performance predictability than existing private WANs using single-provider MPLS services.

“In a tough economy, frugal IT shops are looking to cut costs, and Talari can help organizations move away from private WANs and toward secure, well performing public Internet connections,” noted Best of Interop judge, Michael Biddick. “Performance of the WAN is key-but price is also part of the equation. Talari can enable better WAN performance at reduced cost.” Biddick is president and CTO of Fusion PPT and an InformationWeekAnalytics contributor.

The Best of Interop Judging Committee, comprised of InformationWeek Analytics editors and analysts, reviewed 135 entries and selected nine winning products with the most significant technical impact.
