Get started with an SWG instance on a Citrix ADC SDX appliance

The Citrix ADC SDX appliance is a multitenant platform on which you can provision and manage multiple virtual Citrix ADC instances. The SDX appliance addresses cloud computing and multitenancy requirements by allowing a single administrator to configure and manage the appliance and delegate the administration of each hosted instance to tenants. The SDX appliance enables the appliance administrator to provide each tenant the following benefits. They are given below:

  • One complete instance. Each instance has the following privileges:
    • Dedicated CPU and memory resources
    • A separate space for entities
    • The independence to run the release and build of their choice
    • Lifecycle independence
  • A completely isolated network. Traffic meant for a particular instance is sent only to that instance.

If you have not already installed your Citrix ADC SDX appliance, see Hardware Installation for information about installing the appliance.

You must use the Management Service to perform initial configuration of the Citrix ADC SDX appliance. For more information, see Getting Started with the Management Service User Interface.

You can provision Citrix SWG instances on the Citrix ADC SDX appliance the same way that you would provision a Citrix ADC VPX instance. To provision an SWG instance on an SDX appliance, you need to install an “SDX - 10K concurrent sessions SWG add-on pack” license. This license is similar to SDX instance packs for VPX but is exclusive to SWG instances. For more information about provisioning Citrix ADC instances, see Provisioning Citrix ADC instances.

To configure the Citrix SWG instance to receive traffic, follow the instructions in Getting Started with a Citrix SWG Appliance.
