Overview

Designed for students with little or no previous NetScaler experience, this course is best suited for individuals who will be deploying or managing NetScaler environments.

What’s New:

The course has been completely redeveloped and improves upon CNS-205: Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Networking via the following:

  • Improved course structure and flow to focus on NetScaler essentials for the first 3 days, and traffic management for the remaining 2.
  • A new lab environment, redesigned and built for enhanced performance.
  • Incorporated course feedback that has been gathered over the last year.
  • New content introduced throughout the course.

Part 1: NetScaler Essentials (Days 1-3)

Learn the skills required to implement NetScaler components including secure Load Balancing, High Availability, and NetScaler Management. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address traffic delivery and management requirements including load balancing, availability, and NetScaler operation management.

Part 2: NetScaler Traffic Management (Days 4-5)

Learn the skills required to configure and manage NetScaler Traffic Management features, including Content Switching, Traffic Optimization, and Global Server Load Balancing. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address efficient traffic switching and resilience requirements including content switching, traffic optimization, and disaster recovery.

Intended Audience

Students interested in learning how to implement and manage the advanced NetScaler features using leading practices. Specifically:

  • Administrators
  • Implementers / Engineers
  • Architects

At Completion

  • Identify the functionality and capabilities of the NetScaler
  • Explain basic NetScaler network architecture
  • Obtain, install, and manage NetScaler licenses
  • Explain how SSL is used to secure the NetScaler
  • Optimize the NetScaler system for traffic handling and management
  • Customize the NetScaler system for traffic flow and content-specific require
