In Case of Emergency (ICE) License
Pulse Secure ICE license option provides a quick resolution when the unexpected happens, delivering the ability to handle extreme peak demands and to support continued business operations. The ICE license option is applied to the Pulse Secure Appliance – (PSA) – Series of appliances; physical, virtual or cloud. It allows the maximum capacity of the underlying hardware (or resource allocation) for a temporary period.
With the full ICE option, for example, an organization with a Pulse Secure PSA5000 licensed for 100 concurrent users can add the PSA ICE license. When applied and enabled, ICE license will allow the organization to support up to 2,500 concurrent users on that device for up to 8 weeks (2,500 users is the maximum user count supported on the PSA5000). With the ICE license option applied to multiple PSAs, user licenses can be readily shared, during the 8-week timeframe, to allow for even greater access flexibility and consumption during a regional crisis.
When ICE is applied but not enabled on a Pulse Secure Appliance, the expanded capacity and license exchange features cannot be used on that device unless the corresponding this ICE license has been enabled.
