BlueCat Networks Citrix Ready Solutions Now Verified with Citrix NetScaler SDX
Toronto, Canada – October 3, 2012 – BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, today announced that it has teamed with Citrix® to help organizations build more intelligent, app-driven networks. BlueCat Networks will work with Citrix to deliver best-in-class DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management solutions on NetScaler® SDX, the company's consolidated service delivery networking platform, for software defined networks (SDN).
"The dynamic nature of cloud services requires a level of app-awareness, control and flexibility that goes beyond the capabilities of today's datacenter networks," said Morgan Gerhart, Director, NetScaler Product Group, Citrix. "Together, by integrating BlueCat Networks solutions with Citrix NetScaler SDX we are creating an open and unified solution that will provide the infrastructure needed to move the industry toward software-defined networking."
"The growing adoption of cloud and BYOD is placing a heavy demand on the network and core services like DNS and DHCP," said Brad Micklea, Vice President of Product Management, BlueCat Networks. "Simply starting up an Apple iPhone or iPad not only requires an IP address, but also over 30 different DNS queries. To prepare for cloud and the influx of personal devices, BYOD registration must be tightly integrated with DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management. The DNS, DHCP and IPAM infrastructure also needs to be elastic, scalable and easy to manage to reduce the everyday administration burden on IT. BlueCat Networks is working together with Citrix to deliver resilient global server load balancing and integrated DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management on Citrix NetScaler SDX. Thanks to this integration, it will be easier than ever for organizations to securely access applications and data from any device across the enterprise and in the cloud."
With BlueCat Networks' IPAM solution, basic network configuration tasks critical to supporting strategic cloud and BYOD initiatives can be automated or completed with a few clicks of the mouse. Combined with Citrix NetScaler, BlueCat Networks' BYOD solution offers an adaptive, cost-effective solution for enabling scalable and secure BYOD and mobile access to cloud applications without overwhelming IT staff.

By integrating with partners such as BlueCat Networks, the next generation NetScaler SDX allows the entire network to be app-driven. Unlike closed, proprietary systems that compromise functional depth for functional breadth by adding piecemeal extensions to existing products NetScaler SDX consolidates best-in-class network services.
