This is more in their networking platform technology but I have posted about Citrix NetScaler before. Today in a press release Citrix announced the strategy for the next generation of NetScaler SDX, the company’s consolidated service delivery networking platform, for software defined networks (SDN).
From the press release Capabilites include:
Key capabilities of the next generation NetScaler SDX platform include:
- App-driven control over the whole network by creating a unified application control layer composed of best-in-class L4-L7 network services, and using the control layer to make in-place L2-3 infrastructure and emerging SDN controllers more app-aware. Turnkey AppTemplates for popular applications are provided with integrated L4-7 policies to ease configuration while also embedding application intelligence into all layers of the network.
- Prescriptive, automated deployment of network service by using an app-centric approach for defining networking policy and topology and automating network configuration. AppFormations simplify initial deployment by programmatically pre-packaging the network services necessary to support common use cases, and the topology between for common use cases.
- Consolidated delivery and orchestration of best-in-class network services onto an open, programmable platform that is integrated with leading cloud orchestration platforms. AppFabric provides a common underlying multi-tenant framework for best-in-class third party services to seamlessly and securely plug into the platform
