Data storage isn't just adding up more storage until you run out. It's a flexible, ever-changing landscape of innovation and experimentation. Talon is at the forefront of that landscape. Information needs to be harnessed and shared for the good of an enterprise, but if that information is impaired and held back by outdated storage solutions, it will hold back the business. That's why Talon works hard to provide a solution to that problem.

As a global leader in next generation software-defined storage solutions, Talon provides an unparalleled file-sharing experience throughout globe-spanning enterprises. Our software allows these organizations to centralize and consolidate IT storage infrastructure while bringing data closer to their users. This results in streamlined IT management, allowing for a digital storage solution that can't be beat.

From our headquarters in Mount Laurel, NJ and other global locations, Talon serves the largest Global 2000 organizations, including the most established Architectural, Construction, Engineering, Energy, Offshore, and Manufacturing companies. We aren't just in the business of providing storage, we're in the business of revolutionizing it.
