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 Gateway and Unified Gateway (Days 4-5) Learn the skills required to configure and manage NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway features, including how to implement Gateway components including NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address remote access requirements for Apps and Desktops.
