Citrix: SDN & Cisco ACI: Simplifying Application Delivery Automation

CiscoLive 2016 in the U.S. is a huuuge event! This year brought more than 28,000 attendees, up from 23,000 at the event last year in San Diego.

Cisco’s focus at this year’s event was clear: partners bring value, and if you’ll pardon my bias as one of the best partners, one who’s plutonically aligned, Citrix NetScaler brings the most important component to any network: application delivery. After all, neither the network nor the application are very useful on their own without being able to reach the user.

At this year’s event, Citrix shared its vision for application delivery as it aligns to Cisco ACI and the Software Defined Data Center (SD-DC). We were given the opportunity to share our solutions and expertise by speaking at two of the event’s partner theaters in addition to the hourly presentations at our in-booth theater.

The integration between Citrix NetScaler and Cisco ACI is different than every other 3rd party L4-L7 service plugin.  Fully implementing SDN for automation requires a high degree of potential. Our vision since our first integration to the Cisco APIC-DC in 2014 has been to present administrators with every knob and switch available in our product through Cisco’s ACI manager.

Citrix NetScaler has by far the most comprehensive support of any L4-L7 device in ACI. Our device package is so complete that it’s possible to deploy almost everything natively with the ACI controller in Service Policy mode. Need content rewriting and application acceleration? No problem.
