RapidScale, a provider of managed cloud services, has released Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN as part of its cloud portfolio. The new solution would increase the performance and reliability of traditional enterprise applications, SaaS applications and virtual desktops over any network, while simplifying the branch network.
“The NetScaler SD-WAN product line has numerous advantages over the competition such as single-pane-of-glass management, real-time path selection, packet duplication, and zero-touch provisioning, to name a few,” said Duane Barnes, SVP, Technology at RapidScale. “With this service, customers can future proof their networks, choose whichever carrier they wish, and add or remove carriers at any time with no impact to production operations. Given that we are carrier agnostic, we can deploy these appliances anywhere, on anyone’s cloud or network, and the customer will get best-of-breed results.”
The new addition to RapidScale’s portfolio would seamlessly integrate with RapidScale’s Citrix-powered Desktop-as-a-Service offering CloudDesktop, “accelerating, controlling and optimizing the virtual desktop and application experience.”
“Given our longstanding relationship with Citrix, and their best-of-breed solution, it was a no-brainer for us to partner with them when we decided to launch our SD-WAN service,” added Mr. Barnes. “For RapidScale, the main use case has been our customers requesting ways to improve their network resiliency and performance back to our data centers, where we are delivering desktops and servers to them as a service.”
RapidScale’s “innovative” solutions include CloudServer, CloudDesktop, CloudOffice, CloudMail, CloudRecovery, CloudApps, and more. The company delivers its cloud services via MSOs, VARs, MSPs, Carriers and Master Agents throughout the United States.
“We’re excited that RapidScale has chosen to incorporate Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN into their solution portfolio,” said Chalan Aras, vice president, NetScaler SD-WAN Products. “Adding SD-WAN is a great way for RapidScale to expand their product offering, enhance their other services, and increase their customer satisfaction. NetScaler SD-WAN delivers applications to users over any type of connection and ensures a high-quality user experience for video, voice and virtual applications and desktops, which makes it an ideal solution for Citrix partners.”
