Adapting infrastructure application services to the hybrid and multi-cloud environments creates different challenges in an ever-growing global network environment. However, Citrix made a very clever play to enhance their cloud network and security portfolio with the acquisition of the start-up Cedexis (founded in 2009), a leader in dynamic global traffic management, in mid-February 2018.
What does the acquisition mean?
With the exciting Cedexis acquisition, Citrix will look to enhance the capability of ubiquitous app delivery to end users and strengthens their solutions for the modern workforce to drive productivity. This is a global network game changer; integrating Citrix NetScaler product with Cedexis’ real-time traffic management and insights features will put the Citrix portfolio as a ‘no brainer’ for accelerated hybrid and cloud adoption.
What Could we expect?
Looking at the current Citrix networking products, it’s clear that Citrix NetScaler is a leading networking solution that simplifies networking and security for hybrid- and multi-cloud solutions.
However, further enhancing the networking stack post acquisition with intelligent routing data from 14 billion data points across 130 ISP and Cloud Environments globally, will ensure that businesses can truly deliver applications dynamically and have real-time visibility of application performance with Real user measurements (RUM).
