Managing a Large Scale Deployment

Mar 19, 2012

The NetScaler appliance contains several features that are helpful when you are configuring a large load balancing deployment. Instead of configuring virtual servers and services individually, you can create groups of virtual servers and services. You can also create a range of virtual servers and services, and you can translate or mask virtual server and service IP addresses.

You can set persistence for a group of virtual servers. You can bind monitors to a group of services. Creating a range of virtual servers and services of identical type allows you to set up and configure those servers in a single procedure, which significantly shortens the time required to configure those virtual servers and services.

By translating or masking IP addresses, you can take down virtual servers and services, and make changes to your infrastructure, without extensive reconfiguration of your service and virtual server definitions.
