While hanging out at the CloudGenix SD-WAN mixer in Las Vegas last week, one of the CloudGenix folks ran across someone looking for information on the Citrix SD-WAN solution, and routed them my way. The question was whether or not Citrix was worth considering. Is their SD-WAN offering competitive with other offerings on the market that come up more frequently, such as Viptela, Cisco IWAN, CloudGenix, Silver Peak, Velocloud, and Talari?
At that moment, I wasn’t sure. I’ve had so many SD-WAN related briefings and recorded so many podcasts on the topic, that sometimes brand distinctives blur in my mind. So, I went home and did a little homework. Here’s what I found.
