Traffic Management and Optimization for NetScaler 10.5


The objective of the Citrix NetScaler Traffic and Optimization course is to provide the foundational concepts and advanced skills necessary to support VXLANs in a virtual server and network environment, use caching to optimize web application delivery, set up traffic domains to support separate traffic routing on a single appliance, and leverage front end optimization features for web content. In order to successfully complete this course, learners will have access to lab environment simulations that reinforce the text, graphics, and interactive content in the course.
This course is based on the Citrix NetScaler 10.5 product.
