MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - Talon Storage Solutions (www.talonstorage.com), the leading provider of Microsoft File Aware application acceleration and storage solutions for branch office infrastructure, today announced its new MobileFAST™ (MFAST™) solution. MFAST™, available free of charge to Talon clients, transforms the economics of Mobile Optimized File Sharing for smaller branch offices and mobile workers within the enterprise marketplace. The requirement for a whole class of conventional accelerator hardware for small branch offices, and virtual workforces is removed -- while delivering uncompromising performance.
"Dealing with conflicting requirements of increasing application demands within the constraints of tight budgets is at the top of agendas in 2013," said Andrew Mullen, SVP, sales and marketing, Talon. "Our MFAST™ solution provides road warriors and home office users with the ability to efficiently access on-premise storage resources and facilitates the adoption of new, more efficient organizational approaches by optimizing both performance and costs."
Building on its flagship RemoteFAST™ product, Talon's introduction of MFAST™ presents a number of technology and economic firsts to the mobile marketplace. MFAST™ clients can automatically collaborate to create a high performance, distributed workforce whether using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Clients are fully integrated with enterprise security, allowing for AD log on, with no VPN requirements and selective caching of data. Laptop users have full offline networking mode with local virtual cache, preserving Windows semantics.
The economics of MFAST™ are innovative and unique. MFAST™ is available to Talon Storage Solutions clients free of charge. This means that all smartphones, tablets, and laptops can be equipped at zero cost. Customers purchase a license based only on the maximum concurrent users of the technology, not on clients deployed. A typical enterprise could see a savings of up to 125% in capital and operating expenditure.
Mullen concludes, "Large enterprises with numerous small branches, and virtual workforces previously faced a choice of whether or not they should implement a physical appliance for optimizing file sharing and collaboration. MFAST™ completely resolves this 'client or appliance' dilemma, by providing the benefit of both individual and virtual workforce in one solution while significantly lowering TCO."
MFAST™ is generally available, free of charge. Concurrent user licenses will be priced from sub $6 to $4 per user, or less than $72 per year.
