CloudBridge 7.4 release has the following enhancements:
On models that include a
management service VM, the management service GUI (the System tab) is no longer
used. All management is now performed in the accelerator GUI, simplifying the
user interface and making it more consistent between models that have a
management service VM and those that do not.
On the CloudBridge 4000 and
5000 appliance, using the NetScaler instance GUI is no longer necessary when
setting up WCCP or virtual inline modes.
and Supportability Improvements
The Reset to Factory
functionality now retains IP configuration and licensing to allow appliances to
be moved from one location to another easily, and shortening the reset time to
just a few minutes.
A built-in packet analyzer
allows trace files to be viewed on the appliance itself.
The CloudBridge VPX now
supports DHCP on the accelerated bridge interface.
Insight Center Enhancements
The new WAN Insight feature
enables NetScaler Insight Center to monitor both accelerated and unaccelerated
traffic flowing through CloudBridge appliances. It can track connections by
branch office as well as by application and user, so link-related or
branch-related performance issues can be pinpointed easily.
Multi-Hop support for
NetScaler Insight Center enables Insight Center to detect which Citrix
appliances a connection passes through (CloudBridge, NetScaler, NetScaler
Gateway), and in which order, for improved reporting.
Center 10.5.55.8007.e now monitors CloudBridge VPX 7.4.0 appliances.
Note: To monitor a CloudBridge VPX appliance, specify
the CloudBridge VPX primary IP address in the NetScaler Insight Center.
WCCP clustering support on
WCCP 2.1-compatible timer
settings allow greater responsiveness to network events in WCCP deployments.
Improved Windows filesystem
improvement through enhanced SMB2 read-ahead.
CloudBridge now supports
the Citrix NITRO API, which allows you to control CloudBridge appliances
through REST (Representational State Transfer) commands.
Secure Acceleration Setup
A datacenter appliance
can now generate and push out secure tunnel credentials to branch-office
Improved IPv6 support.
filesystem version classification (SMB1, SMB2, SMB3)
Citrix Call Home option
