One of the main features that we all love about NetScalers is the single code approach, it doesn’t matter if the appliance is an VPX, MPX or SDX they all run the same code base.
It is not a secret that DevOps has been gaining a lot of momentum during the last couple of years and Citrix is now delivering a containerized NetScaler version for DevOps. We can now give a NetScaler container for every developer for them to work with and as mentioned above it runs the exact same code
We just saw a demo for NetScaler SD-WAN, a way to concentrate multiple different links into a single one and provide seamless automatic failover. They actually cut the cables on the stage to show us that it works. It was the best demo of the show no question.
