Talon FAST™


Modern enterprises face the ever-increasing growth of unstructured data worldwide. New compliance requirements, SLAs, and end user needs demand an ever increasing network of infrastructure to deliver data where it needs to go. Cloud consolidation is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Cloud storage is a crucial part of data management in the modern age. Without a strong cloud strategy, enterprises will falter under the burden of unstructured data. Talon FAST™ software addresses these challenges by enabling your cloud consolidation strategies and leveraging the power of local file caching to ensure your data is centralized and secure.

Talon Announces NetApp acquisition to fuel global cloud consolidation

on March 9th, 2020

Mount Laurel, NJ – March 9, 2020 - Talon, a leader in next generation software-defined storage solutions enabling global enterprises to centralize and consolidate IT storage infrastructure, today announced its acquisition by NetApp, the leader in cloud data services. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Talon’s strategic vision of a cloud-consolidated, data centric footprint which has been adopted by many global enterprises today is seen as synergistic with NetApp’s own vision of simplifying data services across an organization’s choice of clouds to accelerate digital transformation. The combination of Talon’s intelligent file caching software, in combination with the NetApp Cloud Volumes suite, has the potential to significantly accelerate centralization and consolidation of large networks of geographically dispersed distributed file servers into the cloud.

“We’re excited about the potential for our customers to be brought more completely into the NetApp customer family, with all of their resources and vision,” stated Shirish Phatak, Founder/CEO of Talon Storage. “This is a true ‘win-win’ for Talon’s stakeholders, employees, and customers, as both NetApp and Talon share a common vision for the power of the cloud as the consolidated repository for all types of unstructured data.”

NetApp’s acquisition of Talon enhances the company’s cloud data services portfolio with a market-
leading solution that solves all the remote office and branch office challenges with file shares. Talon
FAST™ is a cloud data service that provides a “Global File Cache” service for ROBO workloads, to enable
file server consolidation into a secure, globally accessible file system on NetApp’s public cloud platform

Talon’s software will integrate with NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP, Cloud Volumes Service and Azure NetApp Files solutions and give customers a faster path to the public cloud at a better total cost of ownership. Visit NetApp Cloud Central for more information.
