Description

Expand upon what you have learned in the NetScaler® 12 Getting Started and High Availability courses in the NetScaler® Essentials series. You’ll continue to use the environment that was created previously in order to demonstrate load balancing features and functionality. In this course, Enabling Load Balancing with Citrix NetScaler® 12, you’ll learn about load balancing and configuration components including vservers, servers, services, and monitors. First, you’ll step through an analogy related to cheeseburgers in order to solidify an understanding as to how load balancing functions. A bit unconventional, but load balancing will make sense like never before. Next, you'll dive a bit deeper into the various options and talk about when and how you may need to employ them. Finally, you’ll spend some time discovering what to do if something goes wrong. By the end of this third course in the series, you’ll be confident with load balancing including basic setup, tweaking the setup so that load balancing works optimally for your needs, and fixing the load balancing configuration if it isn’t working the way you had expected.
