Talari Networks is a San Jose, CA-based networking equipment company. The company develops a line of rack mountable appliances designed to help businesses connect and manage multiple WAN connections. The products act as both load balancing and redundancy controllers, allowing aggregation of private, high and low cost Internet connections to improve bandwidth, while monitoring the status of the links to maintain optimal network and application performance. Talari Networks was founded in 2007 by Andy Gottlieb and John Dickey, former colleagues at Applied Micro. Gottlieb became the company’s first CEO, and Dickey became Vice President of Engineering. The company launched its initial beta product in early 2008. In 2011, Emerick Woods was named the company’s CEO. The company’s main products are the Adaptive Private Networking (APN) appliances. The rack-mountable devices allow companies to combine multiple WAN connections, such as private MPLS service, with lower cost public Internet links using DSL, cable, and wireless services.
