Netscaler and Exchange

We are planning a VDI solution using Citrix Xendesktop. As part of the VDI solution we have an internal Netscaler VPX to load balance the Citrix Storefront servers. As part of the deployment we also have two exchange servers and I am looking for a load balancing solution for the Exchange servers also. my question is if I can use the same Netscaler Appliance that I wil be using for Citrix Storefront servers to load balance exchange servers as well. I may have to create an additional Virtual server on VPX and does that impact any licenses for the Netscaler or can I use it without any additional cost.

Yes, once you have a NetScaler (now called Citrix ADC) licensed for load-balancing, you may use it for load-balancing Exchange or anything else in addition to Citrix Apps and Desktop / VDI without any additional cost. I would also suggest that you spin up another VPX and create an HA pair to remove the single point of failure.
