Latest Rumors: Cisco to license/puchase NetScaler?
October 16, 2012 1 Comment
I feel like I’ve become the TMZ of Cisco load balancer gossip, and as much as I’d like to stop, I’ve got some more rumors for y’all.
Cisco! Cisco! Cisco! Is it true you’re having a love child with Citrix?
I’ve heard from a number of unofficial non-Cisco sources that Cisco is in talks to do something with NetScaler, and something will be announced soon. Some of the stock analysis sites (which first reported the impending death of ACE) have picked up the rumors, and so has Network World.
The rumors have been anything from Cisco buying NetScaler from Citrix to an OEM agreement, to a sales agreement where Cisco sales sells Citrix as part of their data center offerings. So we’ll see what happens.
