Citrix ADC

Supportability matrix for Citrix ADC cluster

Clustering in the Citrix ADC appliance supports a wide-spread of features in Citrix ADC configurations.

The following table lists the Citrix ADC features and provides the supportability status across different Citrix ADC releases of cluster setups. The supportability status of some Citrix ADC features in a 13.0 Citrix ADC BLX cluster is different than a 13.0 Citrix ADC non-BLX (MPX, or VPX, SDX ADC) cluster.

Important

The “Node-level” entry in the table indicates that the feature is supported only on individual cluster nodes.
