OIT purchases a subscription to the VMWare Academic and Research Program.
Under this program, VMware grants to Duke faculty, staff, and students a nonexclusive, term license to use the Software to use an unlimited number of copies of the software solely for the educational, instructional and non-commercial research purposes of Duke. Lab installers can also be downloaded and used under the program. Software obtained through this program may not be used for Duke IT or administrative processing and computing purposes.
The free Licenses available to program members are 365-day evaluation licenses that require a one-time, annual download. Annual product downloads ensure that members receive the most up to date versions of products and also allows us to better maintain accurate member data. Faculty and staff are eligible for renewals. Students will not be able to renew, however, they may obtain discounted licenses by visiting VMWare’s Academic store.
Discounted licenses for usage not covered in this agreement (administrative, IT, etc.) are available through the VMWare Academic Store or the Duke Technology Center.
