San Francisco, CA and Dusseldorf, Germany – Tallac Networks, a pioneer in SDN cloud-managed networks, will showcase an SMB branch office virtualization and orchestration solution at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in Dusseldorf, Germany. Tallac’s cloud-managed network solution enables businesses of any size to easily and securely create branch office networks that connect remote employees and their applications. In addition, Tallac will showcase orchestration of 3rd party network function virtualization (NFV) services including Brocade’s Vyatta 5400 vRouter and open-source pfSense Firewall supporting both VPN and firewall services from a single Tallac cloud dashboard.

A growing distributed workforce, coupled with the proliferation of mobile devices and cloud applications, are putting unprecedented demands on business networks. Small-to-medium businesses are limited in their ability to meet these demands based on today’s complex and expensive wide-area network (WAN) solutions. Tallac enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to deliver turnkey, cost-effective cloud-managed LAN services targeting SMB customers.

“Our clinics are highly complex mobile operations involving hundreds of volunteers. We are expected to quickly get our support networks set up and working at a wide range of facilities from fairgrounds in the desert to a tent camp supporting homeless vets,” said Mike Whaley, Vice President and IT Manager, California CareForce. “The Tallac networking solutions are one of the few things we don’t worry about. They just work,” continued Whaley.

Tallac enables MSPs to deliver managed LAN networking services that eliminate the need for multiple individual appliance-based solutions:

Virtual Branch Office: Create centralized, cloud-managed distributed LANs in minutes
Virtual Network Services: Deliver cloud VPN, firewall, content filtering, and DHCP/DNS services from a single dashboard
SDN Applications: Simplify applications for business owners to deliver customizable web experiences

“Traditionally, branch office networking solutions have been all about deploying single purpose, proprietary appliances to a physical location,” said Bill Johnson, co-founder and President of Tallac. “We realized that networking needs to be about securely connecting people and applications from anywhere based on centralized corporate policies and not proprietary appliances. Tallac is re-inventing how software defined networks extend from the data center to the corporate local-area network (LAN) — an entirely new way to cloud-manage network virtualization and orchestration of enterprise LANs,” continued Johnson.
