Citrix Announces the Availability of the NetScaler® MPX 25000 Series
Mar 2 15
Citrix announced the availability of the NetScaler® MPX 25000 series, a carrier-grade application delivery controller (ADC) for communications service providers featuring Citrix TriScale® technology and the high performance-to-price ratio. The next-generation NetScaler is a two rack-unit (2RU) 160 gigabit-per-second appliance that enables operators to scale mobile S/Gi-LAN data plane capacity to 3.5 terabits-per-second while preserving earlier capacity investments. As operators shift towards NFV, the NetScaler MPX 25000 series can enable that transition by converting to a multi-tenant platform supporting dozens of virtual ADC instances. The new appliances solve the challenges of cost-prohibitive capacity scaling, underutilized application delivery investments and the absence of physical-to-virtual application delivery alternatives. NetScaler has been designed to ensure cost-effective deployment at scale. The carrier-grade NetScaler MPX 25000 series has a: 1.5X higher performance-to-price ratio than competing chassis-based products and 3X higher performance-to-price ratio than competing appliance-based products. Additional benefits of the NetScaler MPX 25000 for communication service providers include providing the ability to: Scale mobile S/Gi-LAN services – Enables operators to scale any network use case, including optimization and gateway load balancing, CGNAT and traffic-steering in the data plane; and LTE DNS, SMPP, SIP, and Diameter load-balancing in the control plane. Consolidate multiple use cases on a single platform – Allows operators to reduce use case-specific deployments that add complexity and inefficiency to the S/Gi-LAN environment. The most impactful consolidated scenario is that of carrier-grade network address translation (CGNAT) and data-plane load balancing and, optionally, traffic steering. Minimize stranded investments – Helps operators protect their network infrastructure investment through Citrix TriScale® scale-out clustering, which enables multiple appliances to be treated as a single logical and functional unit. As operators look to minimize up-front investment and scale capacity with new hardware, they can continue to make use of the original hardware. Bridge the NFV gap – Helps operators protect and transition their network infrastructure to multi-tenant appliances supporting up to eighty virtual ADC instances with Citrix TriScale scale-in multi-tenancy. Citrix NetScaler MPX 25000 will be generally available March 16, 2015.
Citrix and Google Enhance Enterprise Security and Management of Android Devices
Feb 26 15
Citrix announced an extension of its long-standing collaboration with Google by providing XenMobile support for Android for Work. This announcement builds on the multi-year collaboration between Citrix and Google that includes virtual app and desktop delivery on Chrome devices and existing enterprise mobility management support for Android smart phones and tablets. Together, Citrix and Google empower both businesses and government institutions with a secure, scalable, app-centric, mobility solution that delivers exceptional user experience, providing people with new ways to work better. Traditional distinctions between personal and business are quickly fading from view and people routinely use the same smart phones, tablets and laptops across every part of their lives. This makes it difficult for IT organizations to maintain boundaries between personal and business content. In this era of blurred lines, people require a secure mobile workspace that provides instant access to their business apps, data and services on any device over any network. Combining Citrix mobile workspace solutions with Android and Chrome devices ensures joint customers can deliver the security, flexibility and the experience people need to work anytime, anywhere.
