Citrix NetScaler, an overview

This article will be a review of Citrix NetScaler, One of Citrix most successful products in the market. It will be a high level overview of NetScaler where I will focus on models, licenses and use cases. It won’t be a bake-off as such perhaps that will be the case in another article. Why a NetScaler article you might wonder, well I’ve been involved in numerous design projects and since a decade or more the remote access scenario’s are growing more complex.

A lot has changed in a decade, at times it seems we all work from home, a restaurant, the airport, well just anywhere we can find a spot to sit and do our job. but working from home is not the only thing you want to enable these days, load balancing, offloading and so much more. There are several solutions on the market but there is, for me, one that stands out. Citrix NetScaler I think has been the leader in this market segment for a long time. I’ve been working with VMware solutions a lot and if we compare VMware and Citrix, Citrix far exceeds VMware in this field. It’s one of the biggest holes in the VMware stack a NetScaler-like solution. VMware Access Point is nice but not even close to what NetScaler offers.
