A new era of automation with Cisco ACI and the Citrix ADC Manager app

Article | August 3, 2022

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). As a valued technology partner, Citrix has a device package — a software module — that enables users to configure the Citrix ADC directly from a Cisco APIC. This setup has run in many customer production environments over the years. Let’s consider one of those customers — Jim. He was the first to deploy the integrated solution in his data center. The solution gave him the automation he needed and a single view to configure, deploy, and manage applications. However, his application admins preferred to use the Citrix ADC user interface to manage L4-L7 services.

We Need to Talk About ‘Cloud Neutrality’

Article | July 6, 2022

We spent a lot of years talking about net neutrality the idea that the companies that provide access to the internet shouldn’t unfairly block, slow down, or otherwise interfere with traffic even if that traffic competes with their services. But there’s an even bigger issue brewing, and it’s time to start talking about it: cloud neutrality. “While its name sounds soft and fluffy,” Microsoft president and general counsel Brad Smith and coauthor Carol Ann Browne write in their recent book, Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age, “in truth the cloud is a fortress.” Their introduction describes the modern marvel of the data center: a 2 million-square-foot, climate-controlled facility made up of colossal electrical generators, diesel fuel tanks, battery arrays, and bulletproof doors

Microsoft Boosts GDPR Compliance, Storage Security in the Cloud

eWeek | May 25, 2018

Data security and regulatory compliance are hot topics these days, due in no small part to the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect on May 25. Helping its cloud customers better adapt to the tough new data privacy provisions in the law, Microsoft announced the general availability of a handful of new compliance tools. First is the Azure Data Subject Request (DSR) portal, allowing businesses to "respond to requests to access, rectify, delete, and export personal data in the cloud," stated Tom Keane, head of global infrastructure at Microsoft Azure, in a May 25 announcement. "In addition, Azure enables customers to access system-generated logs as a part of Azure services." Under GDPR, organizations that conduct business in the EU market or collect data on EU residents must comply with the regulation and its many mandates, even if they are headquartered elsewhere. Those mandates include a "right of access by the data subject," where companies must furnish users, or data subjects, with a copy of their personal data upon request. Data subjects also have a "right to erasure," or the "right to be forgotten" as it is often called, requiring businesses to purge their systems of a user's personal data when asked.
