Unify Your ShareFile Resources with NetScaler Unified Gateway

Resources – they can be tough to come by; or even easy to come by, but expensive and/or difficult to maintain. Luckily, Citrix has an answer. I know there are a number of resources (no pun intended) out there for leveraging NetScaler Unified Gateway for various purposes. Today, I plan to explain how to leverage your NetScaler to minimize resource utilization when working with ShareFile.

That’s right, with Unified Gateway, Citrix customers can put multiple resources behind a single IP. Let’s talk about how we do it: Continue reading “Unify Your ShareFile Resources with NetScaler Unified Gateway”
