Increase agility with software-defined networking

Overcome traditional network limitations and realize the full value of virtualization.

Transform your network to meet evolving demands

To realize the full value of server virtualization, your network needs the agility to move workloads among servers in a matter of seconds—without needing days or weeks of reconfiguration to support the VM in its new location. Traditional network devices are static and don't allow the rapid evolution demanded by today’s virtualization and cloud strategies, and are too OPEX-intensive to deliver true cloud economics. Software-defined networking (SDN) can overcome the limitations of traditional networks by allowing datacenter infrastructure deployment to be automated and delivered as a service.

Citrix delivers best-in-class SDN

Citrix works with partners in a wide range of specializations, including network security, network visibility, mobile device management, identity management and web content security, to deliver best in-class virtualized networking solutions. Citrix NetScaler integrates with leading SDN systems and cloud orchestration platforms. The result is a dynamic network architecture that supports SDN and cloud strategies to increase agility, simplify operations and reduce costs.

Accelerate app deployment and consolidate services delivery

Software-defined networking enhances the benefits of data center virtualization, increasing resource flexibility and utilization and reducing infrastructure costs. IT costs are dramatically reduced through policy-enabled workflow automation, enabling on-demand application delivery and mobility at scale. Citrix NetScaler integrates with leading SDN platforms to converge the management of network and application services into a centralized, extensible orchestration platform that can automate the provisioning and configuration of the entire infrastructure. The result is a modern infrastructure that can deliver new applications and services in minutes.  

Gain your flexibility in your data center and your cloud

On-demand cloud services and SDN allow organizations to quickly grow and transform to meet the demands of the modern workplace. Citrix NetScaler enables organizations to ensure the best security, performance and reliability whether workloads run in the datacenter or in an external cloud. By allowing IT to deliver every application workload at scale and with simplicity, organizations can benefit from all that cloud computing has to offer.

Automate deployment of network services

An app-centric approach for defining networking policy and topology enables prescriptive, automated deployment and configuration of network services. IT can pre-package the network services and associated topology, and then dynamically provision the best-in-class network services each application requires. This frees admins from complex, error-prone per-application provisioning of individual network services.
