Citrix Systems, Inc. (CTXS - Free Report) announced the extension of its ties with Amazon’s (AMZN - Free Report) cloud computing arm — Amazon Web Services (AWS). The companies will collaborate to provide greater flexibility and options for deploying Citrix ADC in hybrid environments.
The partnership aims to enable a convenient and high-performance hybrid environment, which will empower client companies to deliver their best.
Citrix & AWS to Boost Networking Solutions
Citrix offers a range of solutions that aid scaling and integrating the AWS environment, which lead to better application delivery. Both the parties have been consistently striving to expand and extend their offerings.
In this context, Citrix ADC will be used for bringing native AWS services, infrastructure and operating models to facilities which are on-premises. This is a cost-effective method for delivering hybrid experiences.
Citrix also plans to utilize Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) for better control of routing path of traffic. Through the Amazon VPC features, companies can redirect traffic flowing in and out of a VPC through Citrix ADC, which will enhance performance.
Another noteworthy outcome of the collaboration is the creation of AWS Quick Start for Citrix ADC. The application helps companies speed up and automate configurations, which in turn can reduce time, costs and skill levels involved.
Citrix and Amazon are also focused on securing enterprise connectivity. Citrix SD-WAN now supports AWS Transit Gateway for the simplification of Amazon VPCs and on-premises networks connectivity along with the underlying motive of reducing costs.
In combination, these capabilities will enable optimal experiences for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops along with other cloud and SaaS applications on AWS.
