Citrix and Cisco forge partnership to provide next-generation application delivery controllers (ADCs)
Cisco and Citrix believe the IT industry is on the verge of the next major architectural transition: the mobile-cloud era. To help enterprise and service provider customers capture the market transition and transform their business models, Cisco and Citrix have expanded their strategic partnership to provide the essential technologies and solutions for building next-generation datacenter networks that enable the mobile-cloud era.
The partnership couples Cisco’s leadership in datacenter networking with the application delivery strength of Citrix. Together, the two companies are helping enterprises and service providers deliver a true cloud network – leveraging deep network and application-level intelligence to speed service deployment and simplify networking services.
Cisco is recommending Citrix NetScaler Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions to its customers building next-generation datacenter networks, and will integrate NetScaler into the Cisco Cloud Network Services architecture.
Moving to the industry's most advanced cloud network platform
Citrix NetScaler leads the industry with unparalleled ADC innovation, driving the best price/performance in the market, along with the most advanced feature set. Underpinning the NetScaler architecture is Citrix TriScale, providing the ability to Scale Up for greater network elasticity, Scale In for delivering powerful multi-tenancy, and Scale Out using advanced clustering to seamlessly expand network capacity.
With its software-driven, best-in-class ADC capabilities and an open, highly flexible architecture, NetScaler is the natural choice for next-generation datacenters built using Cisco’s Cloud Network Services architectures. Together, Citrix and Cisco deliver best-of-breed capabilities to successfully embrace cloud computing initiatives, enterprise workforce mobility projects and broad-scale desktop virtualization.
