Try for free in sandbox mode
You can try out Centrifugo PRO for free. When you start Centrifugo PRO without license key then it's running in a sandbox mode. Sandbox mode limits the usage of Centrifigo PRO in several ways. For example:
- Centrifugo handles up to 20 concurrent connections
- up to 2 server nodes supported
- up to 10 API requests per second allowed
This mode should be enough for development and trying out PRO features, but must not be used in production environment as we can introduce additional limitations in the future.
Centrifugo PRO is distributed by Centrifugal Labs LTD under commercial license which is different from OSS version. By downloading Centrifugo PRO you automatically accept commercial license terms.
To run without limits Centrifugo PRO requires a license key.
