NetScaler on IBM use cases
Hybrid cloud application delivery
Policy-based traffic isolation
Secure application delivery
Global server load balancing
Phased cloud migration
Why NetScaler on IBM Cloud?
Bot and threat-actor traffic removal: IBM Cloud 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
Stronger security with no performance hit
To protect applications from attack, you could integrate security inspections into IBM Cloud's load balancer. But layers of security introduce long delays, which can affect the application end-user experience. By using NetScaler instead, you benefit from its single-pass architecture for traffic processing, which performs 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 IBM Cloud 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 IBM Cloud.
