Citrix NetScaler 12 Introduction


Anyone with a basic understanding of Citrix products, Networking and Microsoft Windows operating systems.


This course covers an introduction to what the Citrix NetScaler is. We walk through the initial steps to get your NetScaler software downloaded and imported into a VMWare hypervisor. We will build a Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop test server and site, along with a Citrix Storefront server to connect to you NetScaler gateway (ICA Proxy) to quickly start delivering Citrix apps and desktops which you can use as a replacement for legacy Secure Gateway software or Access Gateway appliances. We also cover NetScaler High Availability, Load balancing and the  NetScaler Unified Gateway.
