Product Reviews
Citrix NetScaler MPX 5550 Standard Edition - load balancing device is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easily integrates with other Citrix products Valuable Features:There are a lot of them:* Load balancing in communications* Global load balancing between data centers* The management* Easy integration with other Citrix products.In the management topic, there are three levels:* 1st Level, most user-friendly, the GUI, in this level we can configures all the features and inclusive test the implementations.* 2nd Level Console, very helpful for easy access to all settings and troubleshooting problems, deep level in settings.* 3rd Level Shell, essential to troubleshooting. Direct access to all logging in the components.Easy integration with Citrix Solution, NetScaler has wizards to help implementation of Citrix solutions, like XenApp/XenDesktop and Xenmobile.Improvements to My Organization:In the organization, we have three systems based in Citrix technology, so there was logic to add a solution which give us security and a focal point of access. With Netscaler, we have a solution divided in two data centers, a secure and unique point of access, and balanced traffic between all the critical components in the Citrix solutions. For the last, we have a mature, solid, and secure component to complete the Citrix environment.Room for Improvement:I think there is always room for improvement in this type of solutions. For example, I think the GUI should be easy to understand.Use of Solution:I have used this version about one year, but Netscaler for about three years.Stability Issues:No, this is a Citrix product. This means there are gobs of documentation, and the support given by CItrix, it's very good.Scalability Issues:No. We have four virtual appliances working. If we need to increase, it's a simple process.Previous Solutions:No, the whole solution is based in Citrix technology.Initial Setup:The system was easy, but the GSLB function was more difficult to configure and test.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:It all depends on the features that will be used and the number of accesses.Other Solutions Considered:No.Other Advice:It is important, almost crucial, to have some network knowledge. Have the technical design made, it is very simple to overcomplicate when using this product.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to configure and operate. The vendor team was not great. Valuable Features:* Easy to configure the settings* Easy to operate* A lot of useful network and other great settings* A lot of official and unofficial documentations are available on the internetImprovements to My Organization:It is used specially to provide Citrix Access Gateway to customers and their employees.Room for Improvement:I cannot think of any features that should be added because the product has a lot of useful features already.Use of Solution:Over a year with two customers.Deployment Issues:No, easy to deploy.Stability Issues:No, very stable.Scalability Issues:No, because it can be merged into a cluster.Previous Solutions:Yes, we also use F5 Big-IP LTM and in the past we used Cisco ACE. We didn’t switch specifically to use NetScaler, as we use the most appropriate solution depending on the customers needs.Initial Setup:It depends on the customers needs. If they need high availability, if they need Clustering, the number of virtual servers needed and so on.Implementation Team:We used both of them, but when we used the vendor team, their skills were bad and rework from our in-house was needed.Other Solutions Considered:Yes, we use F5 Big-IP LTM and in the past we used Cisco ACE.Other Advice:Yes, two pieces of advice* Do the official training; and* Use the Citrix documentationDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
