Citrix NetScaler helps organizations build enterprise cloud networks that embody the characteristics and capabilities that define public cloud services, such as elasticity, expandability and simplicity. NetScaler brings to enterprise IT leaders multiple advanced technologies that were previously available only to large public cloud providers.
As an undisputed leader of service and application delivery, Citrix’s NetScaler solutions are deployed in thousands of networks around the globe to optimize, secure and control the delivery of all enterprise and cloud services. They deliver 100% application availability, application and database server offload, acceleration and advanced attack protection. Deployed directly in front of web and database servers, NetScaler solutions combine high-speed load balancing and content switching, http compression, content caching, SSL acceleration, application flow visibility and a powerful application firewall into a single, easy-to-use platform.
NetScaler is available as high-performance network appliances and software-based virtual appliances for maximum deployment flexibility. Unlike competitive appliances and chassis-based systems, each NetScaler appliance is capable of running all features simultaneously with no limits.
Beyond having the widest array of service delivery platforms, NetScaler is available in three feature editions (Standard, Enterprise, and Platinum) to provide the right set of advanced capabilities meeting nearly any application delivery requirement.
Whether you’re responsible for your organization’s enterprise datacenter, or you are a cloud or service provider supporting numerous global customers, NetScaler is the best solution to optimize, secure and control the delivery of all your enterprise and cloud services. Its rich feature set includes local and global server load balancing, full web app firewall security, fast application acceleration capabilities, and an easy-to-use policy framework for simple deployment — with absolutely no programming required.
As IT managers transform their traditional datacenters into enterprise clouds, they need real solutions that scale performance on-demand for cloud-like elasticity, expand capacity seamlessly to meet application traffic growth, and consolidate core network capabilities like load balancing, security and acceleration for all datacenter applications into a single platform. Citrix TriScale technology is the right strategy for enterprises and service providers that need multiple methods for scaling their network.
The NetScaler solution integrates a powerful application firewall to protect web applications from attack, prevent leakage of sensitive customer data and company confidential information, and help organizations comply with strict data security mandates, such as PCI-DSS. It combines a comprehensive attack detection database to immediately identify and block known security threats, along with a positive security model that blocks ‘zero day’ attacks. To help monitor and improve application performance, NetScaler includes AppFlow, an open industry-standard that supports popular application monitoring and business intelligence tools. With NetScaler and AppFlow, you gain end-to-end visibility, ensure compliance and protect valuable corporate assets.
NetScaler securely and transparently brings public and private clouds together. Its integrated CloudBridge capabilities extend the capacity of the enterprise datacenter by integrating secure tunneling and WAN optimization. It enables enterprise IT to maintain control and security even when application workloads move into the cloud. NetScaler CloudConnector optimizes SaaS and cloud-delivered applications by moving powerful application delivery capabilities into the cloud for a better and faster end user experience.
Build an end-to-end service delivery fabric to optimally deliver any type of application – enterprise, cloud, mobile or web – using a single NetScaler platform to meet performance and availability SLAs. NetScaler offers flexible deployment hardware and software appliance choices, along with a unified management framework to streamline policy definition and control.
