Data Government Solutions, LLC
, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tech
 (NASDAQ:TECD), the world's leading end-to-end distributor of
technology products, services and solutions, today announced that
the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has approved the
modification of the company's GSA IT 70 contract, GS-35F-0349S, to add Talari
 SD-WAN products. Tech Data is the only GSA IT 70 contract
holder offering Talari Networks products. The addition of the Talari
Networks product line to the contract will allow Tech Data customers to
ease the paperwork burden for government end-user customers looking to
take advantage of Talari's patented and NSS
Labs "Recommended" Failsafe SD-WAN solutions.

"Government agencies, much like other IT departments, are looking at
SD-WAN to help them optimize access to their hybrid cloud IT
infrastructures and next-generation applications," said Milo Speranzo,
director of strategy and compliance, at Tech Data Government Solutions.
"By extending our portfolio to include Talari Networks in our GSA IT 70
contract, we are accelerating access to these valuable tools for our
public sector clients and ultimately their end-user customers."

The GSA IT 70 contract enables easier access to IT infrastructure tools
for federal, state and local government agencies as well as educational
institutions. For these groups, purchasing from pre-approved vendors
included under the contract allows agencies to cut through red tape and
receive goods and services quickly and more efficiently.

"We are excited to deliver our Failsafe SD-WAN solutions under the Tech
Data GSA IT 70 contract," said George Just, vice president of sales, at
Talari Networks. "Government customers will find exceptional value and
the industry's highest
customer satisfaction ratings
 in Talari's SD-WAN capabilities. This
will ensure their agencies avoid downtime while lowering costs,
increasing bandwidth and improving cloud access."
