Description

NetScaler is a complex product, and the purpose of this course is to break down the extensive capabilities into bite-sized, easy to consume pieces. The contents of this course will get you going with not just the mechanics of NetScaler but a real understanding. In this course, Getting Started with NetScaler 12 Essentials, you'll learn the basics of NetScaler while setting up your lab environment and performing initial configuration steps. First, you'll get an overview of Application Delivery Controller, Gateway, Management, and Analytics System. Next, you'll discover how to set up a lab environment, whether on-prem or in the cloud, as well as some of the “gotchas” you may encounter. Finally, you'll explore the criteria for making the best decision about which NetScaler product is most suitable for specific circumstances, taking into account usage requirements, functionality, network, and security. By the end this first course in the series, you’ll have a basic understanding of NetScaler and a functional lab setup in place. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to get started with NetScaler 12 at Pluralsight.
