Cisco ACI and Citrix NetScaler Joint Solution
Citrix NetScaler is a key component of the ACI ecosystem. With our combined solution, you can intelligently deliver applications and services in all types of environments. Cisco ACI helps you rapidly deploy applications onto networks with scalability, security, and full visibility. Citrix NetScaler device package for Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) makes it easy to combine NetScaler's Layer 4-to-7 application fabric with Cisco's Layer 2-to-3 network fabric.
Through the concept of a Citrix device package, ACI automates the service chaining and service insertion of physical and virtual NetScaler. Cisco APIC serves as the central point of control for application policy management. Cisco ACI integrates with NetScaler through open APIs and scripts, which gives you consistent automation and orchestration of Application Delivery Controller (ADC) services required to deploy applications in a fast, highly secure. and reliable manner.
Citrix NetScaler powers some of the world's largest clouds. By deploying ACI and Citrix NetScaler, you can benefit from a rich set of ADC functions while preserving your existing Layer 4-7 operational models. And you can take advantage of these capabilities to scale applications and service delivery infrastructure, in your cloud or on-premises next-generation data centers.
