Citrix unveils NetScaler 10, targeting enterprise and telecom networks

Telecom Lead India: Citrix has unveiled NetScaler
10, targeting both enterprise and carrier networks.


NetScaler 10 features new Citrix TriScale technology.
This new technology elevates NetScaler beyond traditional service and
application delivery controllers.


Creating the industry’s advanced cloud networking
platform, the new release brings elasticity, simplicity and expandability of
the cloud to both enterprise and carrier networks.


The new release ships today and will be featured
prominently in the upcoming Citrix Synergy 2012 conference May 9-11
in San Francisco.


NetScaler, an internet delivery system, is used by 75
percent of internet users each day. The new NetScaler 10 release builds on this
leadership to deliver the advanced cloud networking platform, giving customers
a single integrated solution that brings the elasticity, simplicity and
expandability of the cloud to networks.


NetScaler 10 is a significant milestone – in not just
the ADC market, but also in heralding in a new infrastructure era where the
network takes center stage as enterprises and service providers transform due
to the unstoppable forces of mobility and cloud,” said Sunil Potti, vice
president and general manager, NetScaler Product Group, Citrix.


NetScaler 10 enables enterprises to embrace a cloud-first
network design across all service delivery functions including cloud
connectivity, security and visibility, giving IT the control and confidence to
take on the transformation to the cloud network era.


Citrix NetScaler 10 provides the simplicity and
expandability that SoftLayer needs to power Internet scale global cloud
infrastructure, while empowering granular control over cloud services. The
ability to scale performance on demand, with no disruption to applications or
services, and no wasted network resources, gives our business a tremendous
competitive advantage,” said Nathan Day, chief scientist, SoftLayer.


Datacenter and cloud managers can provide a comprehensive
set of network-based services at virtually unbounded network flexibility and
scale. This ensures that network infrastructure always has the capacity and
performance to handle the demands of even the most intensive application or
service in the most efficient way possible.


Transformation of the traditional, silo-based datacenter
into a full-fledged enterprise cloud requires a complete rethinking of network
architectures. The new cloud network must embrace advanced technologies that
make the infrastructure elastic and expandable to meet increasingly dynamic
business needs, while still preserving the simplicity to keep it manageable,”
said Joe Skorupa, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Research.
