Citrix: Creating a NetScaler Stack with High Availability in AWS
We’ve seen increasing traction for NetScaler in customer deployments as they migrate to the cloud. One of the key differentiators for NetScaler is its agnostic approach to supporting application delivery on any cloud. There is tremendous value in being able to deploy a common set of application delivery services that can span on-premises and public cloud infrastructures.
AWS has historically been the predominant player to date in the public cloud space, and one of the useful tools available on AWS is CloudFormation, which enables system administrators and developers to exercise more control of how new infrastructure and resources are provisioned and updated. Think of it like a prescriptive and repeatable series of steps and instructions that allow you to automatically create the same infrastructure stack – every time.
What does this have to do with NetScaler? We now have available CloudFormation templates that can be applied when you’re provisioning a new NetScaler VPX instance. This template significantly decreases the number of steps involved to setup and configure a new NetScaler.
