Provide your application developer with an ADC that delivers speed and flexibility

Enterprises are embracing digital transformation, which means application development needs to stay current. With Citrix ADC, your line of business (LOB) application developers can deploy their own app delivery resources anyway they choose, whether it’s in their development environment, in the cloud or in a Platform as a Service (PaaS). There is never a need to open tickets with IT as Citrix ADC provides the speed and control you and your developers need.

The Citrix Application Delivery Management StyleBook defines all Citrix ADC configurations in a structured YAML form accessible through a simple GUI or through StyleBook APIs. Your IT teams can choose the StyleBooks they need and map to the configuration to provide your line of business (LOB) developers. Scale your operations by providing your developers with a self-service model for virtual IP provisioning when their app is deployed in dev, test and prod environments.

Citrix ADC supports software and hardware application delivery approaches, offering freedom to pick the form factor and approach that best fits your needs. Citrix Networking VPX supports scale up and scale out capabilities, hitless upgrades and extensive telemetry to help developers and operations team members quickly troubleshoot application issues. Citrix Networking CPX offers the same capabilities in a Docker container form factor.

With Citrix ADC, developers can consume ADC capabilities during development with policies and configurations that can be transported or moved to production Citrix Networking Appliances under the control of your cloud digital team. With full access to their own Citrix ADC resources, developers can view their application performance statistics and troubleshoot even when the infrastructure is shared across many applications.

Citrix Networking Appliances have been used by SSPs and enterprises for more than a decade. Many open-source products don’t have a management, analytics, and orchestration platform. And most mainstream ADC vendors don’t have a containerized ADC with a simplified architecture that can function independent of hardware. Unlike the competition, Citrix ADC provides the complete stack.
