Citrix ADC is an all-in-one application delivery controller that makes applications run up to five times better, reduces application ownership costs, optimizes the user experience, and ensures that applications are always available.
A Citrix ADC cluster is a group of Citrix ADC nCore appliances working together as a single system image. Each appliance of the cluster is called a node. A Citrix ADC cluster can include as few as 2 or as many as 32 Citrix ADC nCore hardware or virtual appliances as nodes.
The client traffic is distributed between the nodes to provide high availability, high throughput, and scalability.
Citrix ADC pooled capacity is a licensing framework that comprises a bandwidth pool and a virtual instance pool that is hosted on and served by Citrix Application Delivery Management.
Citrix ADC is an application delivery controller that performs application-specific traffic analysis to intelligently distribute, optimize, and secure Layer 4-Layer 7 (L4–L7) network traffic for web applications. Its feature set can be broadly consisting of switching, security and protection, and server-farm optimization features.
Use an SSL profile to specify how a Citrix ADC processes SSL traffic. The profile is a collection of SSL parameter settings for SSL entities, such as virtual servers, services, and service groups, and offers ease of configuration and flexibility. You are not limited to configuring only one set of global parameters. You can create multiple sets (profiles) of global parameters and assign different sets to different SSL entities.
Citrix Networking VPX is available as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) in AWS marketplace. Citrix Networking VPX on AWS enables customers to leverage AWS Cloud computing capabilities and use Citrix ADC load balancing and traffic management features for their business needs. Citrix ADC on AWS supports all the traffic management features of a physical Citrix ADC appliance. Citrix ADC instances running in AWS can be deployed as standalone instances or in HA pairs.
NetScaler Admin Partitions enables multi-tenancy at the software level in a single NetScaler instance. Each partition has its own control plane and network plane. This document covers the typical use cases in detail that are enabled by Admin Partitions and guidelines for using Admin Partitions in customer environment.
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software distribution model to deliver software remotely as a web-based service. Commonly used SaaS apps including Microsoft Office 365 subscriptions.
SaaS apps can now be accessed using Citrix Workspace using Citrix Gateway service. The Citrix Gateway service coupled with Citrix Workspace provides a unified user experience for the configured SaaS apps, configured virtual apps, or any other workspace resources.
SaaS apps delivery using Citrix Gateway service provides you an easy, secure, robust, and scalable solution to manage the apps.
Using the Access Control service, administrators can provide a cohesive experience that integrates single sign-on, remote access, and content inspection into a single solution for end-to-end access control. IT administrators can govern access to approved SaaS apps with a simplified single sign-on experience. With the Access Control service, administrators can also protect the organization’s network and end user devices from malware and data leaks by filtering access to specific websites and website categories. Administrators can enforce enhanced access security policies for secure access to SaaS applications. Once authenticated, employees have access to all critical business applications from any device irrespective of whether they are in the office premises, at home, or traveling.
Implement a NetScaler high availability deployment in Microsoft Azure utilizing the Azure Load Balancer (ALB) as the Front End (FE) load balancer.
