Hybrid Cloud Environment
With NetScaler on AWS, hybrid clouds that span enterprise datacenters and extend into AWS can benefit from the same cloud networking platform, significantly easing the transition of applications and workloads back and forth between a private datacenter and AWS. The full suite of NetScaler capabilities, ranging from intelligent database load balancing with DataStream to unprecedented application visibility with AppFlow and real-time monitoring of web application traffic with Action Analytics, can be leveraged with NetScaler on AWS.
AWS for Production Delivery
Customers using AWS for production delivery can now front applications running in AWS with the same core cloud networking platform used by the largest websites and clouds in the world. L4 load balancing, L7 traffic management, application acceleration and application security functionality are all integrated via a single policy framework, simplifying deployment and ongoing management. Global Server Load Balancing can be used to ensure high availability across AWS availability zones, AWS regions, and between AWS and on-premises datacenters.
Customers looking to use AWS as part of their disaster recovery and business continuity plans can rely upon NetScaler Global Server Load Balancing running both on-premise and within AWS to continuously monitor availability of both enterprise datacenters and AWS environments, ensuring users are always sent to the optimal location. Citrix CloudBridge optimizes data transfer and synchronization between various on-premise datacenters and AWS environments.
Development and Testing
Customers running production on-premise but using AWS for development and testing can now include NetScaler within their AWS test environments, speeding time-to-production due to better mimicry of the production environment within their test environments. Citrix CloudBridge optimizes connections between the enterprise datacenter and AWS, securing the connection, speeding transfer of data, and minimizing network costs.
