Citrix NetScaler VPX provides all the comprehensive functionality of NetScaler in a software-based virtual appliance. It is an easy-to-deploy web application acceleration and delivery solution that runs on multiple platforms. Using NetScaler, you can make sure that applications are always available by using high-speed load balancing, data compression and content caching and ensure application security with an integrated application firewall. The simplicity and flexibility of NetScaler VPX make it simple and cost-effective to fully optimise every web application and more effectively integrate networking services with application delivery.
Accelerated deployment with enhanced scalability
NetScaler VPX runs on off-the-shelf servers with multiple hypervisor options, enabling new NetScaler instances to be rapidly provisioned anywhere in the datacenter that load balancing, application acceleration and application security are required. Performance capacities can be upgraded in the field within minutes with the simple addition of a Pay-as-You-Grow license.
Lower total cost of ownership
NetScaler VPX helps organisations control costs by leveraging processing capacity already in place, including existing virtualised servers and associated resources. Multiple NetScaler VPX instances can be deployed on a single server to maximize utilisation of hardware infrastructure, and low-cost commodity server platforms can be used for load balancing and other application delivery needs without creating dependence on specific server hardware.
High availability for Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop
Local and global server load balancing (GSLB), along with secure remote access, improve availability and security for Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenApp deployments without the need to deploy hardware appliances into the Citrix environment. Policy wizards enable quick and safe XenDesktop and XenApp configuration.
Application delivery for small business
NetScaler VPX brings advanced application delivery functionality within reach of organisations that may not have the budget or specialised IT expertise to purchase and install a traditional hardware-based appliance. Unlike competing solutions, the NetScaler VPX virtual appliance provides 100 percent feature parity with its appliance equivalents.
