    Deploy your NetScaler ADCs in the cloud and on-premises via AWS

    The hybrid-cloud model is an effective way to align IT priorities with business needs, which are constantly changing. NetScaler supports this by providing customers with choices in how they deploy and manage applications, whether they keep workloads on-premises or shift business-critical apps to the cloud (or take a hybrid approach).

    NetScaler ADC is validated to run on AWS Outposts and is a great option for your GSLB deployments. It works for both standalone and HA deployments, simplifying app delivery in hybrid-cloud environments with AWS. This enables improved availability for your critical apps, including in disaster recovery scenarios, and a better user experience.

    AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience. It’s ideal for workloads that require low latency access to on-prem systems, local data processing, data residency, and migration of apps with local system interdependencies.

    As organizations speed up digital transformation, many are finding they can move faster by using public cloud services to build on modern architectures and refresh legacy apps. Some workloads, however, must remain on premises due to technology, security, regulatory, or other requirements.

    Now, you can deploy your NetScaler ADCs in the cloud and on-premises via AWS and extend the AWS experience across your entire environment. NetScaler ADC solutions in AWS Outposts and AWS cloud supports your disaster recovery initiatives and enables you to run apps in an on-premises environment and on AWS cloud together.

    With NetScaler ADC as a validated partner product in AWS Outposts, NetScaler customers get myriad benefits:

    • Operational consistency across hybrid-cloud environments with AWS services, infrastructure, and operations for AWS cloud, on-prem NetScaler ADCs, and AWS Outposts.
    • Flexible pooled capacity licensing, which eases the migration of apps to the cloud when the time is right for your organization.
    • Better user experience, throughput, and app availability with GSLB features like geolocation, HTTP proxy, and active/passive deployments. GSLB balances the load across data centers by directing client requests to the closest or best-performing data center or to online data centers if there’s an outage.
    • A hybrid multi-cloud experience at your fingertips, with traffic flowing between your on-premises data center and the AWS cloud
    • GSLB connects multiple NetScaler ADCs, irrespective of their location, so you can deploy your NetScaler ADC in multiple on-prem locations and clouds with full connectivity between them (and with site metrics).
    • To take full advantage of the GSLB features, use NetScaler ADC for load balancing or content switching at each data center so your GSLB configuration can use the proprietary MEP to exchange site metrics.

    The NetScaler solution also includes NetScaler Application Delivery Management (ADM), which enables you to manage your entire NetScaler ADC infrastructure across your AWS environment and AWS Outposts, all with the same tools, from a single pane of glass. NetScaler ADM also provides real-time insights into the status of your entire hybrid-cloud environment and helps you to resolve issues quicker, with proactive troubleshooting.

    With validation of NetScaler ADC VPX in AWS Outposts, NetScaler can provide ultimate choice and flexibility for your ADC deployment. Deliver a great user experience and security for your apps no matter how, or where, you deploy them.
