Citrix from its barrio declared the availability of Citrix NetScaler, industry’s most cutting-edge cloud networking functionality, as a remote services blade intended for the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch. This distinctive integration of NetScaler into the Nexus 7000 has been conjointly developed between the two companies by means of the Cisco Remote Integrated Service Engine (RISE) technology.
Once set up, NetScaler from its part incorporates an external appliance as if it were an embedded service module attached directly en route for the switch backplane in order to power the intelligence of the switch itself. This facilitates automated control, streamlined deployment in addition to an overall lower cost of maneuvers however still providing the independent performance, followed by availability as well as reliability of a premium application delivery controller (ADC).
In the wake of businesses moving en route for cloud-based service models, datacenters from their part necessitate integrated application network services to be able to make available robust application delivery competencies that speed up application performance deprived of the burden of augmented complexity. Efficaciously managing application workloads in a simple, flexible as well as scalable manner, however lowering datacenter outlays is critical in the new eon of cloud plus mobile services.
The exclusive incorporation involving NetScaler VPX, MPX, SDX and 1000V (distributed courtesy- Cisco) – each of which can act as a remote services blade of Nexus 7000 – will in turn empower organizations to be able to take advantage of the full power entailing NetScaler, but then again braced with the additional advantage that it will also be tightly combined with that of any Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch backplane. Power-driven courtesy; RISE technology, the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series and Citrix NetScaler product line will together go on to integrate together to augment the management involving policy-based routing meant for application delivery.
Cisco and Citrix from their corresponding ends accept as true that the IT industry is on the threshold of the next major architectural transition: manifesting as the mobile-cloud age. To be able to aid enterprise besides service provider patrons capture the market transition as well as to be able to transmute their business models Cisco and Citrix have stretched their collaboration from desktop virtualization into three strategic expanses: cloud networking, followed by cloud orchestration, as well as mobile workstyles.
