Improve service levels, strengthen security and enhance RoI

Many NetScaler configurations have been based on legacy best practices, with additional pieces of configuration added throughout the production life cycle to achieve specific requirements at the time. The result is often a poor performing, insecure NetScaler ADC platform that significantly falls short of expectations. Our NetScaler health check and enhancement service takes a deep dive look at every aspect of a NetScaler deployment, providing a plan to make everything related to service success better.

Better user experience

From digital secure workspace delivery to global eCommerce cloud services, we ensure every NetScaler feature is utilised correctly to ensure every user on every device in every location gets the best possible digital experience.

Improve stability and reliability

Site reliability and service uptime are the most critical measurements of success for any digital service. We examine everything from back end load evaluators and service monitors to global cloud ingress points and hybrid cloud load management to ensure the best possible service uptime and stability.

Enhance security posture

Covering everything from API and Bot management to Zero Trust Network Access and a high performance Web App Firewall, NetScaler has a significant set of security capabilities that continue to evolve in line with modern threats. We help you understand where security risks exist, and how the NetScaler configuration can be improved to address them.

Simplify administration

Newer NetScaler builds, particularly when combined with NetScaler Console (formerly ADM), streamline common administration tasks and configuration requirements. Simplify administration and BAU procedures from lines of code to a few clicks helps save time, and enables greater service agility.

Increase efficiency and RoI

Maximise licenced feature utilisation, and reduce computational resource consumption on both the NetScaler and wider service eco system infrastructure. We help organisations of all sizes reduce the cost and the environmental impact of their digital service delivery.

“cloudDNA provides a top quality NetScaler health check service. This allows me as the accountable head to have the confidence that we have the appropriate configuration and controls, and demonstrate this to my stakeholders.”

Make everything better

Every NetScaler installation is different, so we take some time to understand the service SLAs before analysing the installation, configuration and integration of every aspect of the deployment. When we have all the facts, we’re able to produce a bespoke list of recommendations to make everything better.

Requirements gathering

Open forum kick off workshops held with the service business and technical stakeholders ensure that current and known future requirements are fully understood from all perspectives.

Contextual analysis

Examination of the existing architecture, services, builds, configurations, operational processes and relevant eco systems factors to establish where enhancement can be made. We also take a look at licence entitlements vs utilisation and spot any technical overlap with 3rd party vendor services that needlessly consume precious budget.

Recommendation and remediation

The findings are documented and presented in a review workshop, with a list of recommendations to help refine the service in line with business and technical objectives. Critical advisories are highlighted along with any quick wins, with all other recommendations following in an ‘effort for return’ order. We provide an effort estimate to complete the work, to allow for internal resource planning or as the basis for a follow on activity under a specific scope of works or as part of our SME on Demand enhancement service.

Strategic & tactical plans

The deliverable will include strategic and tactical plans and recommendations to help
• Improve service resilience, performance, efficiency, manageability and security posture.
• Address any key delivery challenges noted (snag lists/BAU activities).
• Improve licence utilisation and RoI.
• Accurately estimate resource (computer) requirements to enhance UX where applicable.
