Book Description

With a larger demand for responsive websites and availability of services, the IT domain is faced with an ever-rising need for services that are optimized for speed. NetScaler VPX™ is a software-based virtual appliance providing users with the comprehensive NetScaler® feature set. Implementing apps and cloud-based services is much easier with its increased service performance, and integrated security.

Starting off with the basics, this book will give you an insight on all the features NetScaler VPX™ has to offer. You will learn how to set it up and configure it in a virtual environment and will also discover how to integrate it with an existing Citrix® infrastructure. Next, you will venture into other topics such as load balancing Microsoft and Citrix® solutions, configuring different forms of high availability Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB), and will learn how to troubleshoot and analyze data using its extensive array of features. Finally, you will learn how to protect web services using an application firewall.
