Citrix ADC Review

Easy to configure and operate. The vendor team was not great.

What is most valuable?

  • Easy to configure the settings
  • Easy to operate
  • A lot of useful network and other great settings
  • A lot of official and unofficial documentations are available on the internet

How has it helped my organization?

It is used specially to provide Citrix Access Gateway to customers and their employees.

What needs improvement?

I cannot think of any features that should be added because the product has a lot of useful features already.

For how long have I used the solution?

Over a year with two customers.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No, easy to deploy.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, because it can be merged into a cluster.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, we also use F5 Big-IP LTM and in the past we used Cisco ACE. We didn’t switch specifically to use NetScaler, as we use the most appropriate solution depending on the customers needs.

How was the initial setup?

It depends on the customers needs. If they need high availability, if they need Clustering, the number of virtual servers needed and so on.

What about the implementation team?

We used both of them, but when we used the vendor team, their skills were bad and rework from our in-house was needed.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we use F5 Big-IP LTM and in the past we used Cisco ACE.

What other advice do I have?

Yes, two pieces of advice

  1. Do the official training; and 
  2. Use the Citrix documentation
