Accelerite, which has headquarters in Bellevue, Washington, United States, offers a range of products and services which include endpoint device management, virtualization an telecom and IoT service creation offering, as well as the rCloud continuity and disaster recovery solution. The deal enhances Accelerite public and private cloud capabilities and underscores Citrix’s strategy of focusing on its NetScaler, XenServer and Citrix Workspace Cloud products.
“Cloud infrastructure software is one of the three pillars of Accelerite,” suggested Accelerite’s CEO Nara Rajagopalan in a press rlease. “Today, our cloud software portfolio includes disaster recovery and enterprise self-service solutions. The addition of CloudPlatform and CloudPortal Business Manager product lines will help round out our portfolio and enables us to offer complete end-to-end life cycle management for public and private clouds. Although we see an increase in both the acceptance and adoption of containers in today’s clouds, large gaps still exist in an enterprise’s ability to deploy and manage containers in these environments. CloudPlatform, with its simplicity and ease-of-use along with its tremendous customer base, is a great platform for enterprises to use to address this emerging need to help evolve the cloud into its next phase of hyper-convergence.”
