Talon Redefines Global File Sharing With New Release of RemoteFAST™ for Windows Server

FAST™ Intelligent File Aware™ Architecture Extends Enterprise File Sharing and Collaboration for the Distributed Workforce

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) -


  • Enhanced Performance: Secure file sharing using SMB v3, drastically increasing performance and end user productivity
  • Enhanced Reliability: New integration with Microsoft Cluster Services for simple and more powerful redundancy and high availability
  • Enhanced Scalability: Scales on-premise and hybrid-cloud storage infrastructure by providing a direct interface to SAN / DAS mounts
  • Simplified Management: New simplified management of data center file shares, streamlining access control of large data sets

Talon, the leading provider of Microsoft-based enterprise file sharing and collaboration solutions for branch offices, today announced that it has released its next generation of Talon RemoteFAST™ 3.0 for Windows Server. This major release provides powerful security, reliability, and scalability enhancements to the world's only Microsoft-certified enhanced file system -- with a 40% increase in performance over the previous version.

By leveraging RemoteFAST™ Intelligent File Aware™ Caching, distributed enterprises are achieving unprecedented productivity and collaboration while taking performance to new levels, even across global geographies. With RemoteFAST™ 3.0, all remote users experience real-time access to corporate storage and file shares as if they were in the same office.

RemoteFAST™'s new features include support for SMB v3, and direct connections to backend SAN, DAS, and iSCSI-based storage, allowing enhanced iSCSI backend support, along with simplified management and high availability. Customers can now also scale both on-premise and cloud-enabled infrastructure by directly mounting SAN volumes and exporting them to the edges without back-end fileserver involvement. This capability creates benefits for pure data centers and hybrid cloud deployments.

RemoteFAST™ also provides enhanced filtering and simplifies management of file shares excluded from access outside the data center and can limit access to specified shares from given remote branches. This functionality is a clear differentiator from competition as it allows the isolation of data center file sets for use in outsourced, third party consultancy or managed service provider deployments.

Shirish Phatak, Talon CEO explains, "The latest RemoteFAST™ 3.0 for Windows Server release is ground breaking for organizations looking to extend data center and cloud storage to the distributed enterprise without sacrificing performance or data integrity and at cost that is unbeatable. At Talon, we are poised to achieve our mission of ensuring that distributed enterprise file sharing and collaboration on premises and in the cloud are more efficient, more productive, and most importantly, delivered without compromise."

Talon's RemoteFAST™ for Windows Server has enjoyed unprecedented success in the last two years, with its install base growing over 600%. RemoteFAST™ 3.0 is available November 15 for new deployments and as a free upgrade to existing customers. For more information, visit
