Load Balance Technologies

מק"ט: #1766 | משך קורס: 24 שעות אק'

The objective of the course is to provide the foundational concepts and advanced skills necessary to implement, configure, secure, monitor, optimize, and troubleshoot a Citrix Netscaler system from within a networking framework. This course is designed specifically for learners who have limited or no previous Load Balancer experience. In order to successfully complete this course, learners will have access to hands-on exercises within a virtual lab environment.
