In Part 3 I highlighted the extensive features of NetScaler VPX. NetScaler VPX is available in three Editions, Standard, Enterprise and Platinum and each edition has specific features enables for use.
This very detailed article from Citrix details each of the features and editions in a handy matrix, but I’m going to explain the more common features used by the Citrix Service Provider partners.
Remember, although NetScaler Gateway is present, to use all of the Gateway features you may need specific user licenses!
Additionally, please note that this blog series applies to the CSP Licensing only – perpetual licensing has a few subtle variations to the information below and the matrix linked above details the perpetual licensing options. For example, GSLB and IP Reputation can be added as an optional and separate license in the perpetual licensing model; this is not available using CSP licensing.
* As detailed in the next blog, some NetScaler Gateway features require Premium or WorkSpace Suite user licenses.
** NetScaler HDX Insight historical data retention is dependent on the Edition used and also requires a Premium or WorkSpace Suite user license. NetScaler VPX Enterprise Edition provides real-time Insight data, NetScaler VPX Platinum Edition is able to retain historical data for a configurable amount of time.
If you have any questions about NetScaler Web Insight please contact me. In the next blog I write about ICA Proxy and Smart Access.
