NetScaler on AWS

NetScaler on AWS is ideal for delivering highly scalable, resilient, and secure applications at a lower cost. When you deploy applications on AWS and on-premises data centers, NetScaler works the same across them both to simplify application delivery.

Why NetScaler on AWS?

Reduced costs

Bot and threat-actor traffic removal: AWS charges by the bandwidth used and number of requests, so removing approximately 40 percent of the traffic requests caused by bots frees up backend services and results in significant savings

Connection multiplexing: By re-using connections to backend resources, backend servers have less load, so fewer resources are needed to support the same load

Caching content: By serving cached content, NetScaler reduces the workload of the backend resources and, as a result, reduces the number of resources required

Better performance

NetScaler’s GSLB capability connects multiple NetScaler ADCs — regardless of their locations — so you can deploy your ADCs in multiple on-premises locations and on AWS with full connectivity between them and full visibility into ADC and application performance metrics.

Stronger security with no performance hit

IT teams often integrate security inspections into native cloud load balancers to protect applications from attack. But layers of security introduce long delays, which can affect the application end-user experience. NetScaler is the only application delivery and security platform that uses a one-pass architecture for traffic processing for applications hosted on AWS. This capability enables NetScaler to perform many functions simultaneously — including security inspections  — to reduce latency and improve performance.

Centralized management to save time and reduce configuration errors 

NetScaler works the same on AWS as it does on-premises: You use the same management plane and configuration commands for application delivery no matter where you host your application. From a single dashboard, you can streamline the management, monitoring, and troubleshooting of your application delivery on AWS — including AWS Outposts for on-premises workloads.

“We didn’t know we needed something like NetScaler — we just went with the old way of doing things. Now we have a streamlined way of handling auto-scaling in AWS, which means we also save money since we don’t need to have all the capacity allocated all the time.”
