[Micronet] VMware Academic Program now available to faculty, staff, and students

Ist-Comm Departmental
Good afternoon,

IST has recently procured a campus license for the VMware Academic Program (VMAP). With this, faculty, staff, and students now have access to many VMware products for non-production and research use, at no extra charge. These include: VMware Workstation, Fusion, vCenter, vCloud Suite, vSphere, and more. The licenses may be used for instruction and non-commercial research, including labs.

This agreement will allow individuals and department to take advantage of UC Berkeley’s enterprise license, and not continue to incur the cost for their subscription.

These products can be viewed and/or downloaded via the VMware tab within the UCB Software Central site (CalNet ID is required).

Terms and conditions for the use of the VMWare products

All,

We've gotten some questions about this from a few different groups so I want to highlight a key aspect of the acceptable use agreement.  You cannot use the VMAP licenses for administrative computing or "infrastructure use."

"Infrastructure use is defined as use of software as a part of the affiliated organization’s infrastructure that is not intended to be used primarily for instructional or research use..."

I hope that helps a bit.  Many of the products require a yearly re-install, which I believe is to help prevent abuse of the program.

If you require a production-level environment you'll have to continue paying for the full licenses, or (better yet!), free yourself of the burden and have IST host it for you.

Jonathon
