Cisco ACE vs Citrix Netscaler.

Hi.

Could someone tell me the pros and cons for ACE and NetScaler. I need to load balancing my exchange environment and there hasn't been any good article on what key factor why you should choose either one.


Best Regards
Erik Vestheim

well, cisco confirmed that they are not going to develop further generations of its ACE, also Cisco is now a partner with Citrix to use Netscalers as part of the solution

having that in mind NetScaler

Hey d1234567

Okay, but for just plane old load balancing, would TMG and UAG be any worth looking into?

I have netscalers and they can be a bit of a pain at times to set up load balancing but are rock solid linux boxes. If you are running citrix I would suggest netscaler because it can do some fancy Access Gateway authentication pass through and encapsulates the ICA traffic to SSL. If you are solely running exchange I would run the TMG server as its implementation is a lot simpler to accomplish.
