Citrix NetScaler MPX/SDX data sheet

NetScaler is available in either a hardware or software-based appliance. Hardware options include single and multi-tenant devices, in addition to FIPS compliant and high SSL appliances. Software-based options include virtual hypervisor-based and containerized microservice offerings. All appliances require a specific NetScaler software edition to be paired with the specific model being selected (with the exception of the containerized NetScaler CPX which is not available in different editions).

 

MPX: Hardware-based app delivery appliances

SDX: Hardware-based appliances with advanced virtualization to consolidate up to 115 independently-managed NetScaler instances

Low End
Small and medium enterprise: up to 15Gbps
