Citrix and VMware Partner to Integrate NetScaler and VMware NSX™
Network Virtualization for the Software-Defined Datacenter
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Today at VMworld®, Citrix announced Citrix® NetScaler® Control Center
for VMware. Citrix is automating deployment and configuration of NetScaler
functionality within networks that will use the new VMware NSX™ network
virtualization platform and other VMware virtualization technologies.
Leveraging the same technology&index=2&md5=97556a6756c40861026a7ee7670265ba">Citrix
Triscale™ technology that powers the world’s largest clouds,
NetScaler Control Center enables cloud administrators to
programmatically insert best-in-class NetScaler services into
software-defined datacenters built on VMware virtualization technologies.
In today’s era of mobility and cloud, an open network virtualization
architecture is a critical element of the software-defined datacenter.
It provides the networking agility and programmability necessary to
simplify datacenter IT operations while enabling choice. Citrix is
partnering with VMware to give customers the freedom to seamlessly
insert NetScaler into VMware NSX networks, allowing them to deploy
best-in-class NetScaler application delivery services into their VMware
or other cloud environments. In doing so, Citrix is providing customers
flexibility and choice when deploying advanced application availability,
security and optimization functionality.
NetScaler Control Center integration with VMware NSX abstracts away the
traditional complexities associated with physical network topology,
enabling users to programmatically deploy NetScaler services within
seconds. Leveraging infrastructure used to integrate NetScaler with
Citrix CloudPlatform™ powered by Apache
CloudStack, NetScaler Control Center automates the deployment,
configuration and management of NetScaler services into virtualized
networks, traditional physical networks, or into mixed physical and
virtual networking environments. Combined with NetScaler SDX, NetScaler
Control Center is another key milestone in the Citrix vision to deliver
application-defined cloud networks.
