Citrix to extend services to Google Cloud
Avails SD-WAN and Citrix ADC on Google Cloud Platform marketplace
Citrix is to make Citrix SD-WAN and Citrix ADC available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), enabling organisations to extend their networks to their preferred cloud platform.
“Application performance and delivery and is all about experience and choice,” said Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer, Citrix. “In making our networking solutions available on GCP, Citrix is providing companies with even greater cloud choice and a simple, efficient way to deploy the ever-increasing list of SaaS, cloud, virtual, web and microservices-based apps their employees need to be engaged and productive.”
Whether motivated by efficiency, agility, scalability or cost, companies are increasingly moving apps to the cloud. But regardless of where they are hosted, users expect a consistent and reliable experience. To help deliver it, Citrix will offer a virtual instance of its SD-WAN appliance on the GCP Marketplace beginning next month.
Application delivery is a different game today. Many companies are moving to modernise their apps with microservices and Kubernetes and more efficiently deploy their applications across hybrid cloud. Through increased integration of Citrix ADC with GCP, Kubernetes, service mesh with Istio architectures and open source CNCF tools, Citrix wants to help businesses attain these objectives.
