To thrive and survive in the new Digital World, businesses are becoming software companies and having to innovate rapidly to respond to ever evolving customer requirements. This rapid pace in application innovation is driving IT to go Mode 2: Adopt Agile and DevOps practices, scale out micro services application architectures and leverage on-premise / off-premise private/hybrid cloud architectures.

The Application Delivery network sits between a business’s applications and its customers and plays a critical role in secure and reliable delivery of applications. As IT goes Mode 2, so must the application delivery network. Just going Mode 2 isn’t enough, the application delivery network MUST bridge the transition from Mode 1 (traditional) to Mode 2 (Agile IT).


Abhishek Chauhan is CTO for Delivery Networks at Citrix. Please join Abhishek at this session at LinuxCon, where Abhishek will cover the drivers for Mode 2 IT and micro-services application architectures and new requirements for Application Delivery infrastructure. While businesses will augment legacy applications with new micro-services and develop new ones that are completely Mode 2, a mix of these application architectures will co-exist and so will the need to have a mix of Mode 1 and Mode 2 Application Delivery infrastructure. In this talk Abhishek also touches on the manageability requirements of transitioning from Mode 1 to Mode 2.
