Citrix has released a Tech Preview of their product CloudBridge. Citrix CloudBridge connects enterprise datacenters to external clouds and hosting environments, making the cloud a secure extension of the enterprise network.
To implement the Citrix CloudBridge solution, you connect a datacenter to Azure cloud by
setting up a tunnel between a CloudBridge appliance that resides in the datacenter and a
gateway that resides in the Azure cloud. This tunnel is called a CloudBridge tunnel. The
CloudBridge appliance in the datacenter and the gateway in Azure cloud are the end
points of the CloudBridge tunnel and are called peers of the CloudBridge tunnel.
A CloudBridge tunnel between a datacenter and Azure cloud uses the open-standard
Internet Protocol security (IPSec) protocol suite to secure communications between peers
in the CloudBridge tunnel.
