Solving the ADC Market Share Riddle: Why Citrix NetScaler is winning the Data Center

Citrix NetScaler is the only application-delivery controller to gain share in every quarter of 2012. Not coincidentally, it’s also the only ADC optimized for the intense new demands of today’s network infrastructures.

Data-center operators need all the help they can get these days. To compete and win in today’s supercharged global marketplace, companies must roll out new applications and services faster than ever, while maintaining round-the-clock availability and responsive performance amid exponentially increasing traffic. “It’s created the need to have much more flexible and scalable solutions,” says Casey Quillin, senior analyst for storage-area network and data center appliance market research at Dell’Oro Group Inc., of Redwood City, Calif. As a result, IT leaders are rapidly virtualizing data centers and making greater use of software, processing power and storage, based in private and public clouds.
