Citrix Systems said that it will make Citrix SD-WAN and Citrix ADC available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This move will enable companies to extend their networks to the cloud and deliver applications in scalable way.
“Application performance and delivery 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.”
The company said that 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.
Citrix said that many companies are moving to modernize 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, they can achieve their goals.
“Experience-driven application performance and delivery in the cloud is the future of networking” Minahan said. “With Citrix solutions on GCP, companies can deliver it today.”
