Citrix NetScaler is a commercial load balancer that competes with open source load balancers, such as HAProxy and Nginx. NetScaler is available as a container as well, in a product version known as NetScaler CPX. Even better, there is a free version available, called CPX Express. For the rest of the blog post, I’m using my Mac laptop running OS X Sierra, and Docker for Mac (version 17.05.0-ce, build 89658be) .
