Citrix Branch Repeater & Access Gateway Go Virtual


Earlier today (March 3rd, 2010), Citrix announced the launch of Branch Repeater VPXand Access Gateway VPX. Back in the spring of 2009, at Synergy, Citrix announced the vision and strategy to virtualize our entire application networking portfolio. We followed up on that promise by delivering NetScaler VPX in September 2009, and now by delivering software virtual appliances for our networking appliances, Branch Repeater and Access Gateway.

Since the spring of 2009, I met with many customers, analysts and partners and saw a recurring theme emerging from those meetings. Many customers have already seen the benefits of virtualization in the data center, especially for servers. Having extended those benefits to desktops by pursuing desktop virtualization, they are now looking for ways to make the delivery network and branch infrastructure simple, flexible, agile and cost-effective. Check out the Access Gateway VPX demo on CitrixTV at or on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOVj3-xT4S8

Initial feedback from customers indicates that VPX offers a great opportunity to tackle the cost, complexity and service delays in branch offices. Consider this: with hardware appliances, enterprises are required to procure hardware appliances, wait a few days for the delivery and ship them to hundreds of branch offices or sites. It gets worse when there are branch offices without skilled or any IT staff; IT has to fly in staff to such sites to deploy WAN optimization services. Together all these factors contribute to costly and time-consuming branch set up. VPX transforms the entire branch set up process, not to mention the management of WAN optimization in the branch. No more appliance ordering and procurement, shipment to branch offices, flying in IT staff to branches. One could even remotely distribute, configure and deploy Branch Repeater VPX on existing servers in the branch, with skilled IT staff never setting a foot in that branch!
