NetScaler ADC Platforms

Categorized by NetScaler product type

It is a general appliance type ADC equipment. Advanced Edition enables compression and caching, as well as web firewall and SSL VPN capabilities in a single device.
Shared Partition
The Shared Partition method can control system resources per partition and is a very effective method in a cloud environment.
VPX operates as a virtualization switch on top of a variety of hypervisors (MS Hyper-V, Xenserver, VMWare).
Multi Tenant
Appliance product with multi-tenancy, and up to 115 instances can be used on a single appliance.
Why NetScaler

Application delivery controllers are purpose-built networking appliances whose function is to improve the performance, security and resiliency of applications delivered over the web.

A software-first ADC
    In the face of new application architectures and evolving data center technologies, our software-based ADC simplifies deployment across any form factor, any hypervisor, any cloud. And our single API and management platform provides interoperability with any orchestration platform.
Hybrid/multi-cloud manageability
    Organizations today need to run their applications in both local and cloud-based data centers to optimize resources. Citrix NetScaler offers real-time analytics and end-to-end visibility of your entire application infrastructure—regardless of where the applications live.
DevOps app delivery
    DevOps and microservices architectures are changing the way apps are built and managed. Citrix NetScaler allows you to bridge the gap between your traditional and DevOps apps by providing unified capabilities and management through a single console.
Application and infrastructure intelligence
    With Citrix NetScaler, you can harness application and infrastructure intelligence to become more data driven and improve the user experience. Manage, monitor, and troubleshoot your entire infrastructure from a single, unified console. Use real-time analytics to identify and address app performance and security issues.
Pooled capacity
    NetScaler offers a flexible license model that allows you to dynamically scale your application delivery infrastructure to respond quickly to changing conditions resulting in protection of your investment. All your NetScaler devices share the same pool of licenses, whether they’re in use at one data center or are distributed around the world.
Application security efficacy
    NetScaler defends against cyber threats—both on premises and in the cloud—with full application security capabilities. Features including an industry-leading web application firewall give you complete DDoS protection, strong identity and access management, and deep threat visibility.
The Citrix advantage: Better integration with IT
    If you are a Citrix customer, you can benefit from NetScaler’s deep integration with XenApp/XenDesktop implementations. By adding NetScaler, you’ll get extended security, deep visibility, simplified user experience, and intelligent application access control.

NetScaler SD-WAN Capabilities

Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology is reshaping the modern enterprise network by providing improved performance, reduced costs, and enhanced security.

Reduce Costs

Improve Performance

Enhance User

Simple Branch
Network maintain

Central management

Selective transfer
  • Encrypte traffic over UDP
  • Bidirectional WAN state inspection
  • Optional link selection by application
  • Unidirectional line selection function
Improve WAN bandwith
  • Realtime WAN link monitoring
  • Multiful link load balancing for the same flow
  • Policy based specific link select
Option packet duplication ensures lossless connectivity
  • Traffic replication
  • First received traffic send
  • Replication capability on a single link
  • Later received traffic drop
High speed fail-over
  • Packet retransmission
  • State transition for the packet loss (Step 3)
Increase efficiency for point-to-point traffic
  • Branch-to-branch communicate directly without going through headquarters. ex) VoIP
  • Reduce cost and improve speed of application based on mesh architecture
  • Virtual Path based on traffic policy
Troubleshoot Internet Backhaul Vulnerability
  • Offload Internet traffic to SWG services
  • IPSec/GRE handoffs to different service providers, i.e. ZScaler
  • Security and consistent policy enforcement for Internet bound traffic (SWG)
Dynamic Routing
  • Using unique protocol between SD-WAN device
  • Other L3 device use a legacy routing protocol
NetScaler MAS
(Management and Analytics System)

NetScaler Management and Analytics System (MAS) is a centralized network management, analytics, and orchestration solution. From a single platform, administrators can view, automate, and manage network services for scale-out application architectures.

End-to-end network and application management, visibility, and automation

  • As the demands on your network become more complex, so do the demands on your network service management. These challenges drive up costs and reduce productivity.
  • NetScaler MAS simplifies the management of your application delivery infrastructure. Through automated configuration and service discovery, MAS provides faster device deployments, reduces errors during upgrades, and streamlines service delivery. App-centric automation enables administrators to spend less time and effort on granular-level tasks and individual device configuration, freeing up their time and reducing OPEX. Orchestration capabilities also let you automate integration of network services with SDN and cloud management platforms.
  • Scale-out applications can increase the complexity of infrastructures, drive up OPEX costs, and increase security risks. To regain control and scale out successfully, today’s organizations need to take an application-centric approach to enterprise management.
  • NetScaler MAS manages, monitors, and troubleshoots your global app delivery from the data center to your branch offices through a single, unified console. Real-time network analytics information is collected and correlated across users and devices to give a complete picture of the infrastructure. NetScaler MAS allows you to identify and address performance issues and security threats rapidly and effectively.
  • Expired and unused SSL certificates are bad for the user and for your bottom line. NetScaler MAS streamlines every aspect of certificate management. Through a single console, you can establish automated policies to ensure the right issuer, key strength, and correct algorithms, while keeping close tabs on certificates that are unused or soon to expire.
