Article | February 12, 2020

Since it was first available, Citrix has worked with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to integrate Citrix ADC with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC).

However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.
