NetScaler SD-WAN Review
If you only take into consideration its features and capability, it is definitely one of the better products available.


Valuable Features

It would have to be the HDX WAN Optimization and Application Acceleration.

Improvements to My Organization

Ability to deliver content / applications over XenApp/XenDesktop to remote sites with Satellite links.

Room for Improvement

Optimization of CIFS traffic and its integration with Windows (ie. Branch Repeater with Windows or CloudBridge WS).

Use of Solution

Our current project is still ongoing, its been at least 4 years.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Anyone who leverages any Citrix product should consider a TRM agreement.

Other Solutions Considered

We do have Riverbed appliances as well that performs a similar function.

Other Advice

<ul> <li> Analyze your WAN traffic and usage first (ie. look at Latency, Round Trip Time etc)</li> <li>Analyze your applications and users</li> <li>Conduct a PoC to compare performance with and without acceleration</li> <li>If you only take into consideration its features and capability, it is definitely one of the better products available in the market to date.</li> </ul>
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
