Citrix on Monday announced Citrix NetScaler Control Center for VMware. The announcement was at VMworld 2013.
Citrix says it is automating deployment and configuration of NetScaler functionality within networks that will use the new VMware NSX network virtualization platform and other VMware virtualization technologies.
Leveraging the Citrix Triscale technology, NetScaler Control Center enables cloud administrators to programmatically insert best-in-class NetScaler services into software-defined datacenters built on VMware virtualization technologies.
Citrix is partnering with VMware to give customers the freedom to insert NetScaler into VMware NSX networks, allowing them to deploy NetScaler application delivery services into their VMware or other cloud environments.
NetScaler Control Center integration with VMware NSX abstracts away the traditional complexities associated with physical network topology, enabling users to programmatically deploy NetScaler services within seconds.
NetScaler Control Center for VMware will enable customers deploying Citrix NetScaler and VMware technologies to accelerate the transformation to the software-defined data center.
