The new offering increases the performance and reliability of applications and virtual desktops.

[IRVINE, CA: October 3, 2017] RapidScale, a leader in managed cloud services, has released Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN as part of its cloud portfolio. The solution increases 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,” says Duane Barnes, SVP, Technology at RapidScale (@duanebarnes). “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.”

SD-WAN technology is reshaping the modern enterprise network by providing improved performance, reduced costs and enhanced security to businesses. The new addition to RapidScale’s portfolio seamlessly integrates 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. 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,” says Barnes.

“We’re excited that RapidScale has chosen to incorporate Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN into their solution portfolio. Adding SD-WAN is a great way for RapidScale to expand their product offering, enhance their other services, and increase their customer satisfaction,” says Chalan Aras, vice president, NetScaler SD-WAN Products. “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.”

NetScaler SD-WAN also adds value to Skype for Business audio and video calls, which, along with many other mission-critical applications, rely on low-latency networks to deliver an exceptional user experience. This allows RapidScale to leverage the best of multiple Internet connections to deliver calls using the fastest connection at any given moment, ultimately providing the best user experience possible.
