Lines run Active-Active so we get better bandwidth usage and we don't have backup lines sitting idle

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for stability and redundancy on connectivity from the branch offices to the company head office data centre. We have a head office and six remote branches. Most of the applications we deliver to the branches are through terminal services. This includes the EPR system, Microsoft Dynamics-AX. Everything is hosted on-prem. When a line between the branch office and the head office was down the branch could not operate. For most sales orders we have a 4 business hour turnaround time from order to delivery. So when a line is down we were losing sales. SD-WAN has prevented… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Downtime for branch offices is now almost zero. We have 100% real-time visibility into all of our lines. MPLS links have been replaced with lower-cost links, saving a larger percentage of line costs. Overall, I see SD-WAN as a must. And the Citrix SD-WAN product has delivered on expectations and exceeded them. (With later firmware updates we now have good firewall capabilities in the product too)."
  • "The firewall reporting could be easier to use and filter. (It works well enough, but if I need to give an area for improvement, I think this would be it.). The built-in reporting on the product in this regard is not great."

What other advice do I have?

I used to stress about line failures. MPLS was not working for me. MPLS gave me no visibility into the line redundancy. And MPLS is very expensive. SD-WAN was an easy choice for me. Citrix has delivered.

Enables us to check if a laptop is in our domain or not

What is our primary use case?

For the load balancing of the application is for load balancing and as a VPN gateway.

Pros and Cons

  • "The VPN and the load balancing are the most valuable features."
  • "The reports need to be improved. We need to have them customized but they don't have that right now. I would like for them to have better system predictions. We don't have that right now. My system may be working fine right now but after making some changes, that can change."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that if you want to implement NetScaler make sure to get Citrix support for help. I would rate it an eight out of ten. I took off two points because of the bad deployment.

Good stability and scalability with very good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for network latency authentication.

Pros and Cons

  • "The scalability and stability are quite good in general."
  • "The initial setup could be a bit easier."

What other advice do I have?

We're using an older version of the solution, not the newest version. We use the on-premises deployment model. We don't use the solution ourselves, rather, we provide services to our clients. We're testing it for a client right now. Whether the client will ultimately go with the solution is up to them. Our company always promotes NetScaler, and for that reason, I'd give it a ten out of ten.

Good security, documentation, and technical support, but the price should be lower

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. One of the use cases was as an optimizer in a low-bandwidth area where I wanted to replace the MPLS connection.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is security, as it gives me the port bindings that cannot be accomplished using other solutions."
  • "I would like to either see the price reduced or have it packaged with other products to give better value for the money."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this product is to first understand the business and the requirements. No solution should be purchased in haste. I have seen businesses with proper tools but they don't know what to do with them. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

This product is really good in terms of scalability. We have about 300 people who are benefiting from it, spread out over several branches. Our users do not directly interact with it, although it provides backend support for them. At this point, we do not expect to increase…
