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.

CIFS optimisation is really good and benefits are realised if using ICA also. Initial configuration can be problematic.

What other advice do I have?

Understand your network back to front. Make sure that your firewalls are well documented and that the network appliances in the company are well documented.
