NetScaler CloudConnector seamlessly extends the NetScaler footprint from the datacenter to point-of-presence around the world, creating a true end-to-end service delivery fabric. NetScaler CloudConnector is offered in conjunction with key partners as hybrid networking services. The fabric knitted between on-premise NetScaler devices and off-premise cloud-based services enables NetScaler CloudConnector to apply application acceleration, security and availability techniques that a datacenter appliance or a managed service can’t provide by themselves.
NetScaler CloudConnector for CDN – offered in conjunction with Cotendo, a leading provider of next-generation cloud acceleration services – provides end-to-end acceleration and optimization for mobile, web and SaaS applications. By extending the NetScaler footprint from the datacenter into the content delivery network (CDN) points-of-presence (PoPs), the NetScaler CloudConnector for CDN provides.
Dynamic applications push user requests all the way to the datacenter origin, putting the network link between CDN PoPs and the datacenter on the critical path. NetScaler CloudConnector applies symmetric TCP optimizations, data compression and data de-duplication techniques to mitigate latency between the datacenter and the CDN PoPs and accelerate application response time by up to five times.
For applications where security and privacy are paramount, NetScaler CloudConnector preserves full data encryption between the CDN PoPs and the origin datacenter without interfering with the CDN’s or the CloudConnector for CDN’s, ability to accelerate and optimize traffic.
The same techniques used to mitigate network latency and accelerate application response time also dramatically reduce the amount of data leaving the datacenter. Using de-duplication and compression, NetScaler CloudConnector cuts bandwidth required between the origin and CDN by up to 95%, even for dynamically-generated content.
NetScaler CloudConnector is entirely transparent to the delivered applications and cloud services, SaaS providers and end-users themselves and leverages the existing footprint and familiar management of NetScaler ADC devices. NetScaler presence within the PoPs is provided and managed entirely as a service.
