Graham Melville Director, Product Marketing

2 NetScaler 10 NetScaler Ten is changing the number one Internet Delivery System (CLICK) into the Most Advanced Cloud Network Platform” and as we dig down into the details of TriScale, I hope you will see why this is a major launch for us and what the opportunities are (CLICK) The #1 Internet Delivery System is now the Most Advanced Cloud Network Platform

3 Scale 3 Today’s Cloud Evolution Requires a Scale Revolution
NetScaler has been known for a long time for powering the largest sites, but not all datacenters are the same. When people need to scale, they scale in different dimensions, so .. Todays cloud evolution requires a scale revolution And (CLICK) ….. That revolution in scale Today’s Cloud Evolution Requires a Scale Revolution

Scale Out So let’s take a closer look at what clustering gives us. with TriScale Clustering

8 Application Traffic Explosion
Any Device Mobile Workstyles COMSUMERIZATION OF IT Any Cloud Cloud Services PRIVATE & PUBLIC CLOUD As we look at the IT industry today, a number of important trends are changing the way Datacenters are being designed, deployed and used from the largest corporations to smaller enterprises. (CLICK) Consumerization of IT There’s no question that the Consumerization of IT is happening—but what does it mean for IT? Workers accustomed to user-friendly consumer products quickly grow frustrated with IT organizations perceived as unresponsive, inflexible, or—worst of all—behind the times. The fast, responsive and adaptive experiences they are used to in their personal life, they now expect from their business life which creates a demand for highly interactive and easy-to-use experiences in the business environment. Private and Public Cloud (CLICK) Cloud computing is changing the way data is accessed and processed. Massive changes are happening in the corporate data center to capitalize on the advantages that the cloud brings. IDC predict Cloud services will account for 46% of net-new growth in overall IT spending. With private and public cloud infrastructure, organizations have an opportunity to reduce TCO dramatically as data volume increases. As we see an evolution toward greater use of private and public clouds, we see an increasing need for solutions that support hybrid cloud scenarios Data Explosion (CLICK) The volume of data in the workplace is exploding. According to IDC, digital data will grow by 50x over the next decade. As more and more data is created digitally and more and more communications and information is passed in new media format, there will be ever greater demands being placed on the platforms that store, secure, process and manage these massive volumes of data. (CLICK) Information managed by Enterprise Data Centers will grow by 50x IDC IVIEW June 2011

9 Application Traffic Explosion
Any Device Mobile Workstyles COMSUMERIZATION OF IT Any Cloud Cloud Services PRIVATE & PUBLIC CLOUD Application Traffic Explosion So how can data centers increase capacity and performance in an easy cost effective way to meet this explosion (CLICK) in data?

10 Introducing TriScale Clustering
Single VIP ACTIVE Add capacity as needed Scale-out to 32x Highly efficient - eliminating idle resources Highly fault tolerant - alternative to HA pair Eliminate “Forklift Upgrade” - no network downtime ACTIVE 100% Customers agree ACTIVE ACTIVE With Pay-Grow we already have the best solution to avoid forklifts – now it gets better. With Scale-out clustering, you can start with two appliances in an HA pair and immediately benefit from the increased capacity (CLICK) and performance that our clustering delivers while still being prepared for an appliance failing. In fact (CLICK) 100% of the customers we surveyed in Beta agreed saying they wanted to be able to run an HA par in a cluster. (Click) Once the cluster is set up, Capacity can then be added as needed. The cluster of NetScaler’s appear and act as one powerful unit (click) with a Scale-Out capacity all the way to 32 units. ( (CLICK) Efficiency is significantly increased as passive standbys become fully operational eliminating idle resources. (CLICK) The cluster can be designed to cope with the loss of one or more members so it is a powerful alternative to HA pairs CLICK) You can eliminate the major disruption of forklift upgrades and easily achieve zero downtime as you simply add and go. (Click) one configuration, one system image, through a single IP – the power of Citrix TriScale technology! ACTIVE PASSIVE

11 Single Policy View for the whole Cluster
Cluster Master - CLIP The way it works is that a netscaler cluster of 2 to 32 appliances all appear as one logical unit under control of a Cluster Master. This cluster master has an IP address, the CLIP, for unified monitoring, configuring etc. Should the cluster maser fail, another unit in the cluster automatically takes over. Config Prop Config Sync Unified Configuration Unified Monitoring Unified API Aggregates Logs Aggregates Stats Aggregates Trace NetScaler Cluster

12 What Can I Cluster? TriScale Clusters can be built with:
ACTIVE TriScale Clusters can be built with: Same Platform Type (e.g. all MPX appliances) Identical Capacity per Appliance Same Feature Set Software Edition License Option Feature Licenses TriScale Clustering Supports The Most Commonly Used Features ACTIVE ACTIVE ACTIVE TriScale clusters can be built with the same platform, capacity and feature set. The first release will support all the commonly used features with any gaps being filled in after the first release. Load Balancing SSL Compression L4 DoS Protections Responder Content Switching Routing Rewrite Cache Redirect HTTP Denial-of-Service Protection (HTTP DoS) * Integrated Caching * DNS Caching * * Single Node Support

13 Customers Love Active Active
100% Customers agree TriScale Clustering Strongly Agree Agree Neutral Disagree The ability to increase capacity without needing to reconfigure is an advantage as our DataCenter grows 57% 43% 0% The ability to scale without a forklift upgrade will save us time and money 14% 86% The increased capacity and performance of having all boxes active is a great 71% 29% The ability to do high availability with Active Active and without the need for passive standbys Being able to scale out without worrying about any reconfiguration or downtime Customers love the clustering and in particular the active active alternative to an HA pair (CLICK) 100% of customers agree that clustering is great. As you can see, not a single one of our beta responses disagreed or was neutral. (CLICK) (read out a couple of the rows), emphasize the highest agreement was on not having idle resources sitting in a passive standby as part of an HA pair Citrix Confidential - Do Not Distribute

17 NetScaler Action Analytics Real-time Monitoring
Built-in capabilities for monitoring application traffic Top URLs requested for entire site Top URLs requested for each application Top application users (clients) Top URLs requested for entire site (CLICK) Top URLs requested for each application (CLICK) Top application users (clients) (CLICK)

18 Customer Use Cases Perform statistical analysis of real- time data to gain deeper insight into overall application environment: How much bandwidth is being consumed by the Top N users to a specific application URL What are the response times for the most popular web pages. Do I need to add server resources or further optimize my application for better performance? How many users are accessing my top web pages at any point in time? What are the most popular referring sites to my application. I want to understand how users get to my site/page

19 NetScaler Adaptive Policy Control
Application data can be automatically fed back into the NetScaler policy engine to optimize application delivery in real-time Specific client or application traffic can be targeted to change or create policy including: Rate limiting when certain peaks occur Redirection – redirecting requests from the top clients to a different site or data center transparently Enhanced acceleration (e.g. compression and/or caching data) Failover to backup vserver based on depth of surge queue 策略更改 行为分析 引擎 自适应 策略控制引擎

20 Customer Use Optimize my application delivery policy dynamically:
Cache Top N most hit web pages (during specified interval) to offload back-end servers and improve application responsiveness Compress web servers responses for the most requested content to improve user experience and optimize NetScaler resources Increase service to the Top N clients by moving them to a faster backend server SCREEN PLACEHOLDER

30 Westwood TCP: Enhanced Congestion Control
Rapid growth of mobile devices accessing public facing websites drive the need for Westwood TCP Significant performance improvement for long distance, high bandwidth links Modified standard TCP Congestion and Control Algorithm ensures faster recovery and effective congestion avoidance Designed to handle noisy mobile links (sporadic losses due to overlapping radio channels) It is well known that TCP has a limitation on performance when it is used for data transfer over long distance and high bandwidth network, called “Long Fat pipe” implementation. The current Standard TCP implementation rely on packet loss as an indicator of network congestion. The problem in TCP is that it does not possess the capability to distinguish congestion loss from loss invoked by noisy links. As a consequence, Standard TCP reacts with a drastic reduction of the congestion window. In wireless connections overlapping radio channels, signal attenuation, additional noises have a huge impact on such losses. TCP Westwood (TCPW) is a small modification of Standard TCP congestion control algorithm. When the sender perceives that congestion has appeared, the sender uses the estimated available bandwidth to set the congestion window and the slow start threshold sizes. TCP Westwood avoids huge reduction of these values and ensure both faster recovery and effective congestion avoidance. It does not require any support from lower and higher layers and does not need any explicit congestion feedback from the network. Westwood TCP is disabled by default on the system.

31 Click to Rule AppFw Appfw Relaxation rules can now be deployed from the logs The logs must be in CEF log format Convenient option to relax a rule blocking a legitimate request Click to rule app firewall is another big feature, which is all about how you can deploy the policy rules from logs. With the CEF logging enhancement, we got this benefit wherein using the CEF log formats, we can actually create an app firewall rule. Most of the time, it will be created to relax a rule blocking a legitimate request. You right click on the log method on the UI, say “edit and deploy” or directly say “deploy.” If you say “edit and deploy,” the dialogue box you get wherein you see the rule parameters. You have an associated comment as well, so you know where this rule was generated from.
