Citrix NetScaler ADC Review
Load Balancing, Cache Redirection, Content Switching, All Connected With Traffic Management.


What is most valuable?

Load balancing, cache redirection, content switching, all connected with traffic management.

How has it helped my organization?

We have removed all NLB clusters on web applications, increased HA for some applications and now we have possibilities such as rewrite and response with more flexible tools.

What needs improvement?

Maybe creating policies with simple regular expressions.

For how long have I used the solution?

This is my second year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I had some problems with HA node movements.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, I had a small deployment with two nodes of NS.

How is customer service and technical support?

Very quick every time, even with Severity 4, with successful results.

Which solutions did we use previously?

NGNX, but it was not my solution.

How was the initial setup?

It was very easy, the NetScaler community is very big. The GUI is very user friendly and not cumbersome.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's not for startups or SOHO.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered F5 Networks.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good choice for ADC; no marketing.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
