cloudDNA to present 'The Great SD-WAN Bake-off' at Citrix Synergy 2017

We're delighted to announce that cloudDNA Co-founder Al Taylor has been invited by Citrix to host a fireside chat at Synergy, the vendor's annual customer gathering. 

Taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando May 23rd to 25th 2017, Citrix Synergy promises to showcase the very latest product developments from our favourite vendor. It's no wonder that with so much industry buzz, NetScaler SD-WAN has been designated hot topic status for the event.

Join Al for a fact packed session on Tuesday afternoon at 4:45pm when he'll be sharing some of our experiences from real world NetScaler SD-WAN customer testing and production roll outs. The session will close with an open mic Q&A and we might just have a few money can't buy NetScaler SD-WAN prizes* for the best questions so come along and say hello if you are at the event.

Here's the official session description...
