シトリックスがADCポートフォリオをIstioと連携

Thu, 26 Mar 2020 03:00:20 +0000

Citrix ADCポートフォリオは、IngressゲートウェイおよびサイドカープロキシとしてIstioと連携可能になりました。これによりCitrix ADCデータプレーンとIstioコントロールプレーンによる、マイクロサービスベースのアプリケーション環境におけるトラフィックの最適化およびセキュリティ強化が可能になっています。

是非最新のUSブログも参照ください。また、Citrix ADCのIstio環境における利用についてはCitrix Githubページにて技術情報を提供しております。あわせて参照ください。

<Citrix Githubページ>


Istioが重要である理由

企業の間では、ビジネスのアジリティーを高めると共に顧客とユーザーのエクスペリエンスを改善するため、自社アプリケーションをターゲットとしたマイクロサービスベースのアーキテクチャー導入が急速に進んでいます。Istioはマイクロサービスベースのアプリケーションを対象として新たに登場してきたオープンソースのコントロールプレーンであり、以下の3つの重要な機能を備えています。

  • トラフィックマネジメントとレジリエンシー(Pilotモジュール)
  • アイデンティティおよびクレデンシャルマネジメント(Citadelモジュール)
  • アクセスコントロールとテレメトリー収集(Mixerモジュール)

Istioは当初Google、Lyft、およびIBMによる共同開発として開始されましたが、現在ではオープンソースのプロジェクトとしてテクノロジーコミュニティから幅広く受け入れられ、またサービスメッシュ環境をコントロールするための一貫したシンプルな手段を求めるユーザーの間で最も人気のある選択肢となっています。

Istioとオープンソースの統合

ユーザーの戦略においては選択の自由、すなわちアプリケーションを必要とする場所に必要とする形で展開し、またどの場所にあるどの機器からもアクセス可能であることが何よりも重要です。今回の統合を通じ、マイクロサービスベースのアプリケーションを対象とした、リッチなCitrix ADCデータプレーンのためのコントロールプレーンとしてIstioを使用できるようになりました。

このIstioとの統合により、現代のアプリケーションアーキテクチャーにおいて使用する、オープンソースのインフラストラクチャースタックへの私たちの取り組みがさらに深いものとなりました。このようなスタックにはPrometheus、Grafana、Spinnaker、ElasticSearch、Fluentd、Kibanaなどをはじめとする数々のソリューションが含まれ、マイクロサービスの監視、トラブルシューティング、およびセキュリティ確保のための選択肢を提供しています。

シトリックスとIstio:相互にメリット

Citrix ADCとIstioの統合には以下の2つの方法があります。

  • サービスメッシュ環境へのIngressゲートウェイとして
  • マイクロサービス間の通信をコントロールするサイドカープロキシとして

どちらの統合手段もそれぞれ独立して使用できますが、両方を組み合わせた統一されたデータプレーンソリューション構築も可能です。

IstioによるIngressゲートウェイは、末端から基幹への(north-south)トラフィックの流入ポイントとして機能し、外部からサービスメッシュへのアクセスについてセキュリティ確保とコントロールを行います。Citrix ADCのシングルコードベースは最も厳しい環境の中で構築されると共に時間を掛けて完成されたものであり、幅広くIstioサポートが可能となっています。マイクロサービスクラスターへのトラフィック流入を対象とした、Istioにより定義されたポリシーに基づくルーティングや負荷分散には、様々な形態のCitrix ADC(MPX、VPX、CPXなど)を利用できます。したがってマイクロサービスをベースとしない他のアプリケーションに対しても、既存のADCインフラストラクチャー(および同じADCデバイス)を利用可能です。

Citrix ADC CPXはコンテナ化された形態を持ち、Istioサービスメッシュ内の各マイクロサービスポッドに付随するサイドカーとして展開し、Istioコントロールプレーンを使うマイクロサービス間通信のためのプロキシとして動作させることができます。このサイドカーはマイクロサービスに出入りするトラフィックを傍受し、Istioにより定義されたトラフィックマネジメントポリシーを適用することによってサービス自体への負担をなくすことができます。…

テレワークで再認識すべきサイバー空間の職場という概念

Wed, 18 Mar 2020 05:00:01 +0000

新型コロナウイルス(COVID-19) 感染の“急速”な拡大は企業の働き方に変革を促すことになり、海外のメディアが日本や韓国企業の感染拡大防止のための対策について取り上げています。

多くの企業が、従業員の命を優先し、感染拡大防止に努め、困難に立ち向かいながらも事業継続性を維持する様々な取り組みを行っています。歴史的にみて、危機や脅威は常に人の変革を促してきましたが、今回の事態も企業に変化をもたらす大きな試練となったのかもしれません。

連日、新型コロナウイルスによる様々なビジネスへの影響が、多くのメディアで取り上げられています。その中でも、長く保たれてきた企業の働き方の変貌に関する記事がありました。海外のメディアが、日本企業の職場で長時間働くという働き方の変化について取り上げていることが印象に残りました。

Fortuneは次のように述べています。「何万人ものスタッフにテレワークを義務付けたり、推奨したりしている企業がますます増えています。パナソニック、NEC、および三菱もその一部です。こうした変化は、日本国内の企業が、柔軟な業務形態を今後も取り入れていくのか試しているようです。何十年にもわたり、生産性や効率性以上に重視されてきた“物理的な職場にいること”、“忍耐強く長時間働くこと”という働き方の通念を覆しています。」

日本は、間もなく東京オリンピックを迎えます。多くの企業が再びテレワークによって、交通混雑の緩和に協力することでしょう。日本の働き方は大きな変革期を迎えているのかもしれません。

お隣の韓国でも、これまで従業員は“職場”で大半の時間を費やしてきました。部下は、上司より先に退社してはいけないという長時間労働につながるルールが韓国の企業文化の一つとして多くの企業に存在していたようです。
The Korea Herald誌は、新型コロナウイルスの発生により、一時的にせよ、韓国の職場に劇的な変化が起きていると報道しました。Samsung、LG、KTを始めとする主要企業の多くは、従業員に自宅で仕事をする事やフレックスタイム制を推奨しています。

日本や韓国では“職場”で働くことが長らく当たり前とされてきました。しかしこうした慣習は一部地域に限られるものではなく、実は世界に共通しているものなのです。コンサルティング会社のPwCは最近、事業継続性を維持するために企業が取り得る手段に注目しているようです。そこから得られた教訓は、前述の課題への対応方法によっては、将来、その企業を成功に導く可能性があるということです。さらに、Harvard Business Reviewは、企業が大きな混乱に対処できる5つのステップを紹介しています。その最初のステップは、「すべてまたは一部の従業員はリモートで働く必要があると認識する」こととしています。もはやテレワークができる環境を用意することはすべての企業にとって必須といえるかもしれません。

今回、一時的な措置としてテレワークの導入を行った企業も多いと思いますが、有効性が分かった今、恒久的な対策として普及することが予想されます。

今後もこうした環境をいつでも利用できるようにすることが今後のチャレンジでしょう。情報システム部門など一部の部門が不眠不休で緊急対策に窮することなく、いつでも柔軟に対応できるようにしておくことが大切です。特にテクノロジーを有効活用するテレワークの場合、情報セキュリティ面での安全性を十分に考慮しておかなければなりません。テレワークにおける“新しい職場”は、情報=データを中心にしたインターネットにつながるサイバー空間です。テレワーク中であったとしても、情報漏えい事故の発生はあってはなりません。

企業と従業員を守るには“安全なデジタルワークスペース”が重要です。

シトリックスは、従業員が自宅で仕事をする際にデータやアプリケーションに“安全に”アクセスできる環境を実現します。従業員が、それぞれ離れた場所で働いていても、チームとして作業できるセキュリティが高い環境、つまり“安全なデジタルワークスペース”を提供します。デバイスと、データとの間に、安全なデジタル境界線を引くことで、どのようなデバイスでも安全に作業できます。

安全なデジタルワークスペースでセキュリティを守ることは“人を守る”ことにもつながります。今後テレワークを定着させるなら、“職場“が「サイバー空間」まで広がっていることを認識しつつ環境をご用意ください。

シトリックスがお客様の事業継続性の維持を支援する方法(英語)へのリンクをご参考までに掲載します。また、事業継続性計画(BCP)のベストプラクティス、およびシトリックスの安全なデジタルワークスペースを提供するテクノロジーを説明しているホワイトペーパーを提供していますので、ぜひご覧ください。

最後に新型コロナウイルスが一日も早く終息することを心より祈っております。…

テレワークに最適なVDI環境とは ~Azure VDIの最適なプロファイルの置き場所 Part 1~

Sat, 15 Feb 2020 04:00:49 +0000

このブログは、NetApp UK のKirk Ryan氏、Fujitsu UKのAndi Kelcher氏の許諾およびネットアップ合資会社の協力を頂き、以下の記事をベースに執筆、投稿しています。

Windows Virtual Desktop (and Citrix) with FSLogix
https://kirkryan.co.uk/2019/12/12/windows-virtual-desktop-and-citrix-with-fslogix/amp/


テレワークの普及やビジネスの海外展開などに伴い、Azureデータセンター上にVDIを展開するケースが非常に増えています。オンプレミス環境と比べ、低コストで柔軟かつスピーディにVDIを展開できるのが大きなポイントです。

特にテレワークは新しいワークスタイルの標準になりつつあり、クラウドベースのVDIも、更に安全に、低コストで常にユーザーに最高のエクスペリエンスを提供し続ける環境である必要があります。

今後クラウドVDIを展開する上でのいくつかポイントを紹介していきたいと思いますが、今回はクラウドVDIでの重要な検討項目であるプロファイルやデータの保存場所について考えてみたいと思います。

Azure VDI環境の最適なプロファイルの置き場所は?

テレワークの普及やビジネスの海外展開などに伴い、Azureデータセンター上にVDIを展開するケースが非常に増えています。オンプレミス環境と比べ、低コストで柔軟かつスピーディにVDIを展開できるのが大きなポイントです。特にテレワークは新しいワークスタイルの標準になりつつあり、クラウドベースのVDIもより安全に、より低いコストでユーザーに最高のエクスペリエンスを提供し続ける必要があります。。

Azure上でVDIを展開する際に課題となるのが、プロファイルやユーザーデータなどの格納場所です。

キオスク端末など特定の用途を除けばプール型やWindows 10マルチセッションに代表されるセッション共有型のVDIでは、移動ユーザープロファイルの利用が必須です。すなわち最適な移動ユーザープロファイル方式や保存場所、更にユーザーデータ含めたデータの格納場所の選定が重要となってきます。

ここでは少しユーザープロファイルにスポットをあてて、FSLogixについて説明したいと思います。

2018 年 11 月 19 日、Microsoft 社は FSLogix 社を買収しました。 2019年9月30日のWindows Virtual Desktop(WVD)のGAに合わせて、Microsoft社としてのFSLogixがGAになりました。

FSLogixには下記の5つの主要な機能がありますが、特に移動ユーザープロファイルに関わるのは太字の3つです。
