My thoughts on Citrix buying Cedexis and what it is?

IT Blog by Marius Sandbu 0

Earlier today Citrix announced publicly that they have bought the company Cedexis. (If you didn’t catch the news you can read the official blogpost here –>  https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/02/12/citrix-acquires-cedexis/)

Being the tech-curious mind that I am, and started to read through the official blogpost didn’t give me any clarity in what kind of value it would actually bring to Citrix. Also, I haven’t heard about the company before (other than some on social media from time-to-time, so I started to do some research) so therefore I decided to take a closer look and how Citrix can benefit from it.

Looking into the company I noticed that they have a set of products which make up the core which is called Cedexis ADP (Application Delivery Platform) which is actually aimed at making more intelligent load balancing using a combination of (Real-user monitoring & synthetic monitoring) to make the correct decision on where to route the data.

The platform is split into smaller parts where the core is three applications.

Radar: Is a product which contains and gathers real-user telemetry from thousands of users worldwide (you can see some of the interesting statistics here https://live.cedexis.com/) so with this we have detailed mappings on outages and response times and such. This is using a simple JavaScript script embedded within a content page or application provider’s pages to collect information about the performance and availability of a data center or delivery platform. (You can also access some nifty reports here as well à https://www.cedexis.com/get-the-data/country-report/)
