What's new in Citrix NetScaler
The #1 Internet delivery platform is now the world's most advanced cloud network platform.
NetScaler delivers large-scale network capacity for cloud, enterprise and telcos
Introducing the NetScaler 22000 series, an ultra-high capacity scalable platform available in five models to suit the growth requirements of public clouds, enterprise cloud networks, service providers and mobile networks. This latest solution provides the ability to scale up by three times from 40 to 120 Gbps. Through TriScale clustering technology, up to 32 individual appliances may act as one to offer groundbreaking capacity in excess of 3 Tbps. The new architecture sets a world record for secure communications with over half a million SSL transactions per second when using 2048-bit certificates. As with all NetScaler solutions, every combination of features may be concurrently utilized with no loss of functionality. The 2U height appliances minimize space requirements and are also available with NEBS Level 3 certification.
NetScaler on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
NetScaler on AWS enables enterprises to rapidly and cost-effectively leverage world-class NetScaler application delivery capabilities within their Amazon Web Services deployments. It combines the elasticity and flexibility of the most popular cloud with the same power and control NetScaler provides for the most demanding websites and applications in the world.
Cisco and Citrix team to provide best-of-breed application delivery solutions
Cisco and Citrix have expanded their strategic partnership to provide advanced ADC solutions to their mutual customers throughout the world. By combining the datacenter networking leadership of Cisco with the application delivery strength and innovations from Citrix, the two companies are delivering best-of-breed capabilities for next generation, cloud-ready networks. Cisco is now also recommending NetScaler ADC solutions for datacenters built using Cloud Network Services Architectures from Cisco. Bringing together key technologies from respected industry leaders enables enterprises and service providers to deliver deep network and application-level intelligence, speed service deployment and simplify networking services.
Introducing NetScaler 10
Bringing cloud scale to the enterprise with Citrix TriScale
Citrix announces the latest in application and service delivery innovation with NetScaler 10. This landmark release introduces TriScale technology along with dozens of other advanced features that enable traditional enterprise datacenters to transform to enterprise clouds.
TriScale enables a genuine revolution by scaling enterprise cloud networks with an unrivaled set of capabilities that smartly scale application and service delivery infrastructures, affordably and with no additional complexity. With Citrix TriScale technology, organizations of all types, sizes, and levels of cloud maturity can:
TriScale delivers the right architecture for the cloud era – replacing older chassis-based solutions so popular in earlier generation datacenters. It completely eliminates the need to purchase additional blades each time more capacity is required. Citrix TriScale provides the ultimate in flexible and easy-to-deploy capacity scaling. IT administrators can dramatically expand performance, whether locally or throughout public, private and hybrid clouds in multiple synergistic ways. TriScale uniquely provides the ability to dynamically "scale-out, "scale-up" and "scale-in" your network operations.
Dozens of NetScaler appliances may be clustered together to linearly "scale-out" a large unified group with a single system image. In this scenario all NetScaler appliances work in concert to deliver any application or service. At the same time each clustered appliance may be "scaled-up" by five times via either "Pay-As-You-Grow" or Burst Pack license upgrades. Further, services may be "scaled-in" through consolidating up to forty NetScaler instances on each NetScaler SDX appliance. TriScale is available for every NetScaler MPX, SDX and VPX appliance.
NetScaler 10 provides integrated, real-time monitoring of application and client traffic, along with the capability to feed back critical application delivery information to automatically optimize ADC and load balancing policies. NetScaler ActionAnalytics collects detailed information on administrator-selected application traffic flows and generates multi-dimensional views of what is happening in real-time. These detailed, real-time statistics can be fed back into the NetScaler AppExpert Policy Engine to automatically optimize the NetScaler load balancing and app delivery policy for the current environment. It can also be used to adaptively moderate individual bandwidth consumption when the application environment is under unusually heavy load, or automatically cache application content that is greatest demand at any point in time. This ability to dynamically change policy in real-time to deliver the highest optimization for your exact requirements is what sets the new NetScaler ActionAnalytics apart.
Database Server load balancing advances
DataStream is a SQL-aware load balancing and traffic management solution for scaling Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL Server environments. The new NetScaler release extends the power and capabilities of DataStream with token-based load balancing of SQL queries for more flexible scaling strategies, and with advanced caching of SQL responses to improve database server efficiency and increase application responsiveness. NetScaler 10 also adds full AppFlow support for DataStream traffic so that performance monitoring and business intelligence tools now have visibility deep into the application stack for richer monitoring, tracking and troubleshooting of both web and data based traffic.
