Cisco Live in Berlin–a week of smarts, innovation, networking and–yes–fun–taking place February 15-19, is nearly here!

At Citrix, we’re getting our NetScaler demos ready, so we can show you some truly great technology.

NetScaler delivers performance, availability and security for your applications. At Cisco Live Berlin, you’ll have five days to discover technology that will–in ways you’ve never considered–increase the performance and agility of your networks to support your applications. If you’re changing the way you deploy your applications, whether you’re looking at SDN, the Cloud or moving to a DevOps model, the NetScaler team has something for you. We will be at booth P3. Stop by and enter to win an Airwheel or a 3-D Printer!

Here’s a breakdown of what we’ll be showing:

NetScaler with Cisco ACI

If you’re looking at Cisco ACI to automate your network deployments, you’ll want to learn how you can manage NetScaler from the same interface. There are lots of features in NetScaler that you can deploy in a Cisco ACI environment, such as the Application Firewall (AppFW), Load Balancing, and SSL. We’ll show you how to create these in our live demo.

If you’d like to get a preview of how NetScaler works with Cisco ACI, we have a series of workflow videos that show how to deploy a NetScaler using the Cisco APIC and the ACI Fabric. Topics include provisioning the configuring the ACI fabric, configuring application profiles, integrated virtual machine management, creating L4-L7, AppFw, SSL and load balancing service graphs. See the NetScaler ACI Workflow Video Series here: Link.

Citrix XenAapp and XenDesktop with Cisco ACI

NetScaler makes Citrix XenAapp and XenDesktop work better over the network. By deploying it with Cisco ACI, you can automate service creation and manage the network from one screen. We will be showing a live demo for deploying Citrix XenAapp and XenDesktop with Cisco ACI.

Cisco ACI Migration Tool for NetScaler

If you’re using Cisco ACI to automate deployment of NetScaler, our team will show you how you can use the migration tool to convert a function snippet (like LB, SSL) from ns.conf to an ACI XML file that can then be uploaded into APIC GUI for faster NetScaler Deployments in APIC environments. You can take a look at the tool here, and to learn how to use it, check out this video:

NetScaler Proof of Concept Kit on Github

We’ve produced an ACI proof-of-concept starter kit for NetScaler that we will be demonstrating. You can download it from GitHub. We have also created a video that shows you how to download it and use it to create all of the dependent components to support an L4-L7 configuration in ACI for NetScaler. To learn more, watch our video on the NetScaler Github POC Kit:

NetScaler in Cisco dCloud

Cisco dCloud is a demo environment where you can see various product features in action. There are a number of demos with NetScaler available in them in dCloud at We will be showing dCloud and discussing at our booth. You can check out all that’s available in our video series:


The APIC-EM delivers SDN to the Enterprise to the WAN, Campus and Access networks, providing centralized automation of policy-based application profiles. Visit us at Booth P3 to see a demo of the Cisco APIC-EM.

Cisco ACE Migration

If you have Cisco ACE and need to migrate your configurations to a Citrix NetScaler we will be there to discuss the considerations for a successful migration and demonstrating our conversion tool.
