[THIN] Re: WANScaler vs NetScaler

Joe, 

 

Are you saying that when using source IP there is no multiplexing available?

Yes and no.  Yes you will get the benefits of LB but only some of the TCP
optimization as you may end up turning off multiplexing (use source IP).

Would it make sense to use Netscaler to load balance 2 Web servers running
CSG and WI on each?  If I did this, would I get the benefits of the load
balancing plus the performance benefits?

Netscaler does almost too much to summarize. But basically it is a fantastic
load balancing/web optimization device that has great performance and
redundancy. It can do magic as a general purpose load balancer and
especially in front of a web farm of servers through caching and off loading
tasks from the web servers. It is also an enterprise class SSL VPN, it has
an application firewall and now can act as the AAC server in a Citrix farm.
It goes deeper and further, but that is the overview..

Can somebody give me a quick breakdown of what the differences are between
wanscaler and netscaler and what they are used for?

 

Thanks!
