This series of 2 webinars from ShapeBlue will gives some key insights into using Citrix NetScaler in private & public cloud environments. ShapeBlue are expert builders of public & private clouds. They are the leading independent global CloudStack / CloudPlatform integrator & consultancy and bring a unique insight into deploying cloud enabled networking technologies.
Session 1: Developing Hybrid Clouds with Citrix CloudBridge Connector
Tuesday 26th Nov – 2pm GMT
Citrix CloudBridge Connector is a feature of the Citrix NetScaler appliance and connects enterprise datacentres to external clouds and hosting environments, making the cloud a secure extension of your enterprise network. Cloud-hosted applications appear as though they are running on one contiguous enterprise network. With Citrix CloudBridge Connector, you can augment your datacentres with the capacity and efficiency available from cloud providers.
The CloudBridge Connector enables you to move your applications to the cloud to reduce costs and increase reliability.
In addition to using CloudBridge Connector between a datacentre and a cloud, you can use it to connect two datacentre’s for a high-capacity secure and accelerated link.
ShapeBlue are expert builders of public & private clouds. They are the leading independent global CloudStack / CloudPlatform integrator & consultancy and bring a unique insight into deploying hybrid cloud enablement technologies.
This webinar will give a real-world, independent, view of the architecture and use-cases of this technology and how it can be deployed to extend enterprise application deployments to a hybrid cloud environment.
Attendees will learn:
- The architecture of Citrix CloudBridge Connector
- Real-world use-cases & experiences on the technology
- Configuring Citrix CloudBridge Connector
- Extending a secure private datacentre to a public cloud environment
- Deploying typical enterprise workloads across a hybrid cloud environment
This session should be attended by customers looking to get securely to an IaaS providers ‘front door’, network and application administrators, LOB executives, IT execs and interested parties.
Session 2: Supporting cloud Scale with Citrix NetScaler
Tuesday 2 December – 2pm GMT
The cloud infrastructure era demands that organisations rethink their approach to scaling their networking infrastructure. Citrix NetScaler is a technology that has been developed to easily allow elasticity, expandability and simplicity in terms of supporting rapid cloud scale.
This webinar by ShapeBlue will use real world use-case’s and examples to demonstrate the how Citrix NetScaler is perfectly suited to the cloud environment. It will include practical examples & demonstrations.
Attendees will learn:
- How the NetScaler Tri-scale model supports cloud elasticity – an architectural overview
- Clustering NetScaler devices to achieve cloud scale
- How the Citrix NetScaler licensing model supports cloud scaling
- Reducing appliance sprawl with device consolidation
- Achieve automation with NetScaler AutoScale via CloudStack
