Citrix NetScaler ADC Review

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

Valuable Features:

  • 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

Improvements to My Organization:

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

Room for Improvement:

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

Use of Solution:

Over a year with two customers.

Deployment Issues:

No, easy to deploy.

Stability Issues:

No, very stable.

Scalability Issues:

No, because it can be merged into a cluster.

Previous Solutions:

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.

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.

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.

Other Solutions Considered:

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

Other Advice:

Yes, two pieces of advice

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