It’s that time again! Citrix Partner Hubbub is back! This month I will bring you hot topics and announcements around XenMobile 8.5, VDI-in-a-Box 5.3,  XenServer 6.2 and more!

For those of you just tuning in, a hubbub is the sound of many voices, and that’s what we’re aiming for in this new blog series featuring news and information of interest to Citrix channel partners. I’m Blake Cotton, a member of the Citrix WW Channel Marketing team, and I’m inviting you to join the conversation through social media channels. Although the topics I’ll cover each month are also presented in Citrix Partner News, a blog format is more interactive than a newsletter.  It gives each of you the opportunity to express your opinions, ask questions and pass the information along to colleagues or customers.

Help your customers scale services across branches, datacenters and clouds with simplicity and security with this important release of Citrix CloudBridge.

Citrix recently announced the new CloudBridge product family offering that merges the Branch Repeater and CloudBridge products into a unified platform.  With the availability of CloudBridge 7.0, the value of this integrated offering becomes a reality.

Here are some key enhancements provided by the new release:

  • Improved visibility into bandwidth utilization, traffic acceleration and traffic shaping by application provided by enhanced management UI and reporting capabilities
  • Optimization of video delivery through the addition of video caching capabilities.  These video delivery enhancements will greatly benefit XenDesktop deployments that utilize client-rendered video.
  • CloudBridge 4000 and 5000 series devices offer the ability to securely and efficiently tap into Amazon Web Services.  This combined functionality sets the product family apart from competitors, which currently must position multiple devices to provide the same functionality.

For more information, please review the updated Success Kits or contact the CloudBridge Marketing Team.
