Using Citrix NetScaler MA Service in Citrix Cloud to monitor and manage all your NetScalers easily
If people don’t like to do something, they simply won’t do it and find another way. Technology has given us the choice to help find these other ways easily. The culture of the world is again changing, much like the industrial revolution brought change to how people lived 250 years ago. Doesn’t mean we’re becoming lazy, it’s just a sign of progress. We can now prioritize the things in life we want to do and let other things with less priority to us get taken care of with just a few swipes on our phones. It’s the time-value of money translated into time-value of quality of life, people want convenience and are willing to pay for it. There are certain services within Citrix Cloud that can make your life as an engineer easier and I’d like to cover one of them today, NetScaler Management and Analytics Service (or NetScaler MA Service for short).
Making life easier
- Transportation – If I’m traveling, I no longer need to park a car in some mass parking lot in the sun at the airport and get an expensive rental at my destination. Uber and Lyft has given people convenient on-demand rides.
- Shopping – Amazon Prime gets you everything you can think of at your doorstep in 2 days. Prime Now can get you things in under an hour. I’ve forgotten things and ordered on Prime Now at the airport while boarding and it’s waiting for me at the destination before I even land.
- Groceries – Groceries can be ordered online and picked up in the parking lot. Just pop your trunk and an attendant will place them in your vehicle. Some grocery stores even deliver right to your front door.
- Food – DoorDash, Favor, and UberEATS can get you things from your favorite restaurants anywhere in town. Sit on your patio in your pajamas and enjoy your favorite meal as if the chef just cooked it up in your kitchen.
- Cars – Cars can be negotiated and purchased online. Then delivered to your driveway straight from port. A technician can do an orientation right then and there in your driveway. Gone is the stress of a dealership visit and endless waiting on people to get around to you.
- Work – And of course, you can work from anywhere on demand and often times around the more important things in your life, thanks to Citrix enabled workspaces.
I could go on and on about the multitude of on-demand services that empower us to improve the quality of our lives. These services are driven by technology that has pretty much disrupted and reshaped their respective industries. Honestly, you really don’t need to leave your home for much these days as long as you are willing to pay for the convenience. If you do a cost analysis, sure some of these services I just mentioned are slightly more expensive than if you took care of these items using a traditional approach yourself. But examine your life as you use these services. You have more time to live, to spend time with your family, to take up new hobbies, to read a book or watch a movie…it’s the little things worth living life you are now able to do more of. Less stress for you overall and a better quality of life.
