What do you like best?
Allows a load balancing and a distribution of data consumption efficiently is recommended to work with citrix platform before others in order to obtain better results
What do you dislike?
Documentation and support is poor especially in the region, you can not get help forums that can solve problems on the part of the IT staff of the company, not being able to copy and paste from the virtual machine to the host machine represents a handicap important among competitive applications
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It allowed controlling the consumption of data from the different areas of the organization as well as allowing an optimal load balancing taking advantage of the different internet services contracted
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is an application with many shortcomings in terms of support and documentation is preferable to avoid it and find other options that perform the same functionality, At the time of solving a problem you can spend a lot of time waiting for the contact of the authorized support staff

Bad JAVA GUI / HA not working / Still try to get support

  • June 10, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

I tried to setup a HA pair of netscaler. Watched all the setup instructions and videos, but there are some issues:
- Java GUI is not very useful, it fails many times and is really slow
- HA setup does not work, I get always error 401 unauthorized. I double checked the user_data, where I provided the credentials, as stated in the setup video. I also tried other credentials and also changed authorization of my user. Bit nothing will help. By the way setup an HA pair is not fully documented on the edocs site, I had to watch videos.
- Support is still a problem, you do not get really support via the website. You need to make a phone call. Maybe I will give it a try.

Great, advanced utility

Poster below clearly had no experience with Citrix Netscalers in the past. It has amazingly advanced features in traffic load balancing, SSL VPNs, content switching and more. Saved us a lot of hassle with load balancing internal applications, Citrix XenApp farms and on top of that supported balancing CAS Arrays for Microsoft Exchange.

Unusable, untested junk. Useless support

  • November 21, 2013

This appliance is expensive. It does not work. Practically every aspect of admin requires a java console, but after trying half a dozen different PCs, each with multiple browsers, nothing at all gets their applet to load.
Google suggests this is a common well-known and frustrating problem, but stops short of giving work-arounds.

Luckily, this appliance includes support (supposedly):
http://www.citrix.com/global-partners/amazon-web-services.html

" NetScaler VPX ... available on the AWS Marketplace ... including ... a pay-as-you-go model that includes support. "

This, as it turns out, is news to everyone who works in Citrix support.

So yeah - I've wasted 2 hours on the phone to Citrix support folks who are clearly paid a bonus for the number of customers they can refuse to give support to.

Avoid this, unless you're keen to get nothing else done all day, and still have nothing working at the end...
