Citrix's Licensing Shift and Its Implications
Citrix, a major player in the technology and cloud software industry, recently announced the end of maintenance for perpetual licensed software, introducing a new “Universal Subscription” model. This move was mirrored by NetScaler, formerly Citrix, with the cessation of sales for their perpetual licensed load-balancing hardware.
For current Citrix customers with perpetual licenses, the implications are significant. These licenses, which have not been sold since 2019, were running on outdated code that required regular maintenance. Customers were given the option to renew their support until March 5, 2023. Post this date, Citrix ceased offering maintenance and updates for perpetual licenses, prioritizing Universal Subscriptions for cloud-based or on-premise Citrix products.
While Citrix presents the subscription model as an opportunity to gain flexibility, concerns linger about the potential financial burden on IT budgets.
