WAN Virtualization - Revolutionizing Enterprise WAN Economics, Enabling Network for Cloud Computing

Updated: December 23, 2010

WAN Virtualization is doing for Enterprise Wide Area Networks what RAID did for storage - delivering a network with 30 - 100x bandwidth/$, monthly WAN costs reduced by 40% - 90%, and with greater reliability than existing private WANs using Frame Relay or MPLS.

In a carrier pricing environment where a price/bit factor of 2x is enormous, WAN Virtualization brings Moore's Law and Internet economics to Enterprise WAN buyers for the first time in 15 years.

Just as RAID wrapped a layer of hardware and intelligent software around Seagate hard disk technology, Talari Networks WAN Virtualization does something similar with multiple WAN connections - existing private WANs as well as any kind of Internet WAN links, be they DSL, cable, fiber, Metro Ethernet, WiFi/WiMax, etc.

WAN Virtualization technology uses end-end algorithms to do dynamic, real-time, per-packet traffic engineering.

Rather than optimize each application for the network, WAN Virtualization optimizes the network fabric for all applications.

WAN Virtualization enables businesses to build a WAN that is simultaneously less expensive, much higher bandwidth, much lower cost and with lower ongoing operational costs than today's proprietary, single vendor WANs.

It solves the reliability problem with running VoIP safely on your IP WAN, and the cost and reliability issues with running videoconferencing on your IP WAN.

And WAN Virtualization can be added seamlessly into existing networks, rather than requiring a forklift upgrade per site, as migration between services even from one's existing carrier can require.
