Part 2 of “A deeper dive into Cisco VXI finds Cisco WAAS”

Dateline Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.  Citrix Summit and Synergy, October 2011
Hi again,
Last post I said I’d get back to you to give you, at least, my opinion of why Citrix and Cisco are partnering up.  As you might have seen from the dateline above, it’s easy to find out when you get to Citrix Summit and Synergy.  It has to do with the global and ubiquitous Cisco networks deployed by organizations everywhere.  Citrix is doing great with XenApp (last I heard, well over 50,000,000 licenses) and is poised to do even better with XenDesktop.

Supercharge your ISR with Hardware Accelerated VPNs

Next Gen Encryption w/ 3x Performance

Everyone has dirty secrets. One of mine is that I like Mazda Miatas, little sports cars that are cheap to buy, cheap to own, handle well, perform above expectations and require little care.

Try to pass, uphill, on a warm day and god forbid, do so with the air conditioner on and a passenger on board, and that little Miata is going to be taxed out. That is one of the reasons I added a little bit of hardware acceleration in the form of a supercharger to mine.
