Citrix® NetScaler® optimizes the delivery of web applications — increasing security and improving performance and Web server capacity. This approach ensures the best total cost of ownership (TCO), security, availability, and performance for Web applications. The Citrix NetScaler solution is a comprehensive network appliance that combines high-speed load balancing and advanced traffic management with state-of-the-art application acceleration, data compression, dynamic content caching, SSL acceleration, network optimization, and robust application security into a single, tightly integrated solution.
The NetScaler appliances combine advanced application optimization technologies to speed applications. Technologies such as AppCache™, which supports both static and dynamic content, AppCompress™ which provides real-time, high-throughput compression capabilities, dramatically reducing data transmission round-trips, resulting in improved response times experienced by users of Web applications, are an integral part of these solutions.
Citrix WANScaler solutions provide high-performance application delivery to branch office users. WANScaler solutions deliver increased WAN throughput and improved application response times for all applications. The system is built upon the AutoOptimizer Engine, which automatically and dynamically applies to each data flow the best combination of performance boosting techniques, depending on the application, the data, and the network conditions. These techniques include Adaptive TCP Flow Control, Multi-Level Compression, protocol acceleration (e.g., Common Internet File System or CIFS), and Layer 4 service class policies.
The Citrix India R&D team is a key contributor in all such product development activities, and takes immense pride in the fact that these technologies are used at some of the highest traffic Web sites in the world. The R&D team works closely with networking fundamentals, developing technologies that help bridge the gap between networks and applications, and make networks responsive to application requirements.
Citrix is the global leader in application delivery infrastructure. The goal is to provide access to applications with the fastest performance, highest security and lowest cost. Citrix Presentation Server™ is the de facto standard for delivering Windows applications at the lowest cost — to any user, anywhere. It offers both application virtualization and application streaming delivery methods, to enable the best access experience for any user, with any device, working over any network. Presentation Server allows IT to deliver software as a service — providing on-demand access to users while affording IT the flexibility to leverage future application architectures.
Pictor is a core component of the Citrix Presentation Server (CPS), and caters to an emerging market for virtualizing graphics-intensive applications, such as 3D Design and CAD, for remote users. In the CPS model, these applications will be run from a data center and will be delivered to the remote user’s client. This will significantly lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for remote users. Significant components of this cutting-edge technology are being developed from the engineering labs at Citrix’s facility in Bangalore, demonstrating a high level of competence in Windows kernel and OS development.
Project Kent is Citrix’s innovative solution for disaster recovery and business continuity, which involves TCP/IP development along with VOIP protocols like SIP, H.323, RTP and application protocols like HTTP, LDAP and XML. This next generation product is currently under development, with the team in Bangalore closely involved with initial delivery, beta testing and launch. Projects like Kent further demonstrate the cutting-edge technology that is being developed from Citrix India’s R&D labs.
Citrix is the established global leader in providing secure, reliable application delivery infrastructure solutions. Our award-winning Citrix® NetScaler Gateway™ is the only SSL VPN to deliver any application securely, with policy-based SmartAccess control – allowing corporate administrators total control over information system security.
Citrix® AppFirewall protects Web applications from the growing number of application-layer attacks, including buffer overflow exploits, SQL injection attempts, cross-site scripting attacks and more. Citrix AppFirewall delivers the industry’s highest performing Web application security solution, capable of protecting Web servers without degrading throughput or application response times.
All these products interact with each other, and with our customers’ applications, constantly pushing the frontiers of innovation. If you think you are someone who loves technology and values the difference it can make in people’s lives, you can reach us at:
