Citrix License Server VPX

July 27, 2010

With the release of XenServer 5.6, Citrix announced the availability of a new virtual appliance dedicated to licensing. So if you missed it, Citrix License Server VPX is available for download since June 30th.

Licensing service has always been a fundamental component of all Citrix infrastructures and until now it has been available exclusively on Windows platform. Some advantages of this new virtual appliance are:

* LS VPX includes the latest version of License Server 11.6.1 build 10007
* No need for Microsoft license
* No compatibility issues (the latest version had recently a problem on windows 2003 )

This virtual appliance, like all the previous released ones, is initially available only for XenServer, but probably it could be made available also for VMware ESX and MS Hyper-V within a few months.

The License Server VPX could be downloaded here as part of XenServer (Advanced, Enterprise and Platinum version) using your MyCitrix credentials, but it can be used with any other Citrix product. You can see this article for more information and download link.
