Citrix Launches New Cloud Networking Products

Citrix Systems has launched two powerful new cloud networking products NetScaler Cloud Gateway and NetScaler Cloud Bridge. Both these products can seamlessly connect enterprises to external clouds.

NetScaler Cloud Gateway gives IT an easy, unified way to orchestrate the delivery of any mix of SaaS, web and Windows apps to end users. NetScaler Cloud Bridge gives IT unlimited capacity by seamlessly and securely extending any datacenter to any external cloud service.


Citrix has built both products on a common service delivery fabric provided by the NetScaler SDX platform.

Popularity of cloud is soaring every day and this has rapidly changed the role of IT which is now encouraged to deliver a mix of applications to a range of user-owned devices.

IT is also under growing pressure to leverage low-cost cloud computing capacity from external cloud and hosting providers. However it had to deal with issues such as security, manageability and performance.

Citirix notes that Cloud Gateway and Cloud Bridge will now instantly make the cloud more accessible thereby allowing IT organizations to easily extend their datacenters and private clouds to a vast array of external cloud services.

“OpenStack changes the IT equation. Now CIOs can run a highly standardized and scalable cloud operating system in the datacenters that Rackspace is deploying globally,” said Paul Rad, vice president of Technology, Rackspace Hosting. “NetScaler Cloud Bridge brings together external and internal cloud infrastructures and opens the door for IT executives to choose the right computing infrastructure that makes sense for a particular workload based on the business needs.”

The service provider and enterprise sectors are moving toward the adoption of cloud computing to make everyday business tasks easier to distribute and consume, however, there continues to be a nagging hesitancy to do so as a result of compliance, security and inconsistency concerns,” said Antonio Piraino, vice president and research director, Tier 1 Research. “ A solution that offers an end-to-end solution that gives users easy access to the applications and data they desire, while also giving IT the control and assurances they demand from their systems, irrespective of where they reside, is really what business consumers are asking for today.”
