Designed for students with little or no previous NetScaler experience, this course is best suited for individuals who will be deploying or managing NetScaler environments.The course has been completely redeveloped and improves upon CNS-205: Citrix NetScaler Essentials and Networking via the following:Improved course structure and flow to focus on NetScaler essentials for the first 3 days, and traffic management for the remaining 2.A new lab environment, redesigned and built for enhanced performance.Incorporated course feedback that has been gathered over the last year.New content introduced throughout the course.Part 1: NetScaler Essentials (Days 1-3)Learn the skills required to implement NetScaler components including secure Load Balancing, High Availability, and NetScaler Management. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address traffic delivery and management requirements including load balancing, availability, and NetScaler operation management.Part 2: NetScaler Traffic Management (Days 4-5)Learn the skills required to configure and manage NetScaler Traffic Management features, including Content Switching, Traffic Optimization, and Global Server Load Balancing. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address efficient traffic switching and resilience requirements including content switching, traffic optimization, and disaster recovery.
Prior to taking this course, students should have taken CNS-102 NetScaler Overview. It is also recommended to gain a basic understanding of the following concepts and technologies:Basic NetworkingWindows and Linux Server administrationTCP/IP, HTTP protocols and the OSI modelServer load balancing and content switching conceptsWeb server softwareDNS, SSL and compression conceptsNetwork security threats and site protection concepts
