Here a quote from the Release Notes for Build 49.16 of NetScaler 11.1 Release

Citrix Release Note

New CCU packaging and pricing have changed in the following ways:

1. MaxAAA is automatically set to the maximum licensed number.

2. Licenses now use the following scheme:

a. Platinum: Unlimited (formerly 100)

b. Enterprise: 1000 (formerly 5)

c. Standard: 500 (formerly 5)

d. Any other license: 5 (Netscaler Express)

e. If additional CCU licenses are present on the system, you add those to the above values

(for example, standard is 500 + any additional CCU licenses).

f. Disregard additional CCUs for the platinum case, since platinum is already unlimited.



In my opinion SmartAccess is basically FREE the way Citrix packed the CCU's to the Netscaler ADC editions. It looks like Citrix gave up on the universal license so why not remove it completely? One single CCU is/was worth $55 and means Citrix gave away $27.500 for Standard and $55.000 for Enterprise and I wonder if this was signed off by Citrix sales...
