Entitlements

The Citrix App Delivery and Security service entitlement is based on flexible consumption-based metering, where your applications automatically consume capacity from available entitlements. This consumption-based method is a software as a service (SaaS) model, where you consume a service based on the entitlement that you’ve purchased. This flexibility helps you to reduce capacity wastage and avoid entitlement-related performance limits. To use Citrix App Delivery and Security, you need a valid entitlement.

Entitlement types

For preview, only the trial entitlement is available.

To use the trial entitlement, create a Citrix Cloud account and log on to Citrix Cloud. For more info, see Sign up for Citrix Cloud. After you log on to Citrix Cloud, under Available Services, click the App Delivery and Security tile, and click Manage. You see the trial version of Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Citrix Managed. Click Request Trial and follow the screen prompt.

The trial entitlement is valid for 60 days and comes with the following capacity:

Premium: 1 Terabyte (TB) for data processing + 1 million DNS queries

After the trial entitlement has expired or a trial quota (data processed in TB) is exhausted, the Citrix App Delivery and Security service stops processing the traffic. After 30 days from the trial expiry, all the resources created in the Citrix App Delivery and Security service are deleted.

The following table shows the features supported on trial entitlements.
