TechValidate Research on Citrix NetScaler

Case Study: Somerset Hospital Center For Health


This case study of Somerset Hospital Center For Health is based on a September 2015 survey of Citrix NetScaler customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“The original purpose of the NetScaler was to provide outside physician offices secure access to apps published via our XenApp deployment. We replaced the original NetScaler with a pair of newer models a few years ago, and added load balancing functionality for a separate, internal web-based application. The NetScalers have met both of these needs perfectly.”


  • Top purchasing drivers for choosing NetScaler:

Use Case

  • Currently using NetScaler in the following ways:
    • Support their XenApp/XenDesktop deployment
