ACE 4700 series end-of-live

Hello All,


We are using ACE 4710 appliance to load-balance our webserver.

I saw in that the hardware is end-of-sale since  January 2014.

I don't see on the website of Cisco another new ACE model replacing the 4710 appliance.

Could ou please someone tell me by which hardware/platform/solution the ACE will be replace ?

I heard about Citrix  Netscaler Solution...

Could someone tell me more about this ? Is Netscaler the replacing of the Ace ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Frederic,Customers are

Hi Frederic,

Customers are using RISE technology for an order of magnitude CAPEX and OPEX savings.
RISE (Remote Integrated Services Engine) is an innovative, industry-first architecture conceived by the Nexus Services engineering team to seamlessly integrate Nexus switches with appliances offering L2/L3/L4-L7 services. RISE makes the service appliance look like a line card in the Nexus 7K series and N5k/6k(upcoming). This integration allows any appliance to take advantage of the benefits of an in-chassis module such as increased application performance, high application availability, and data center consolidation.

Here are some details on RISE integration with Citrix Netscaler,


RISE Features:
Simplified Out-of-Box experience
Supported on Citrix NetScaler MPX, SDX, VPX, and Nexus 1KV with VPX
Automatic Policy Based Routing - Eliminates need for SNAT or Manual PBR
Direct and Indirect Attach mode integration
Show module for RISE
Attach module for RISE
Auto Attach – Zero touch configuration of RISE  
Health Monitoring of appliance
Appliance HA and VPC supported
DCNM support via DevNet
Order of magnitude OPEX savings: reduction in configuration, and ease of deployment
Order of magnitude CAPEX savings: Wiring, Power Rackspace and Cost savings
