Free eBook on Optimizing Citrix NetScaler and services

So alas, it is here!

This is something I have been working on for some time now, and my intention is that this is just the beginning  of something bigger.. (Hopefully)

For a couple of years now I have been writing for Packt Publishing and authored some books on NetScaler which has been a fun and a good learning experience. The problem with that is… These projects take alot of time! and the problem these days is that the releases are becoming more and more frequent and same goes for other underlying infrastructure which makes it cumbersome to have up-to date content available.

This is the first step in an attempt to create a full (free) NetScaler eBook, for the moment in time I decided to focus on Optimzing NetScaler traffic features. Hopefully other people will tag along as well, since there are so many bright minds in this community!

So what’s included in this initial release.
CPU Sizing
Memory Sizing
NIC Teaming and LACP
VLAN tagging
Jumbo Frames
NetScaler deployment in Azure
NetScaler Packet flow
TCP Profiles
VPX SSL limitations
SSL Profiles
Front-end optimization
Tuning for ICA traffic

Also I would like to thank my reviewers which actually did the job of reading through it and giving me good feedback! (and of course correcting my grammar as well) a special thanks to Carl Stalhood ( a Citrix CTP who contributed with alot of content to this eBook as well.

Also to my other reviewers as well!

How do I get it?
By signing up using your email in the contact form below, and ill send you an PDF copy after the book is finished editing sometime during the weekend, wanted to get this blogpost out before the weekend to see the interest.

The reason why I want to have an email address is that it makes it easier for me so send update after a new major version is available. Also I want some statistics to see how many are actually using it to see if I should continue on with this project or not. The email addresses I get will not be used to anything else, so no newsletters or selling info to the mafia…

Feedback and how to contribute?
Any feedback/corrections/suggestions please send them to my email address also if you want to contribute to this eBook please mail me! since I’m not an expert my all means, so any good ideas should be included so it can be shared with others.
