Easily Manage and Distribute VMware Software
VMware offers two academic programs for educational institutions: Academic Software Licensing and the IT Academy.
Academic Software Licensing provides software licenses for teaching, research, and personal discovery. It cannot be used for campus infrastructure, non-academic purposes or any for-profit activity.
IT Academy provides VMware-developed educational materials and certification resources for people seeking IT positions. It is not intended for campus infrastructure, non-academic purposes or any for-profit activity, such as promoting or delivering VMware courses to businesses to train their IT staff.
In partnership with Kivuto, VMware Academic Software Licensing and the IT Academy are offered to institutions and departments as a subscription-based program. As part of the subscription, you are given access to a custom branded WebStore which allows your members to easily access resources.
- Accredited, degree-granting higher education institutions offering 2, 3 or 4 year programs worldwide (or equivalent)
- Career or technical schools offering accredited degrees or certificates through in-person or distance education programs
- Secondary education (ages 14-17)
- A Campus Subscription covers all faculty, staff members and students enrolled within the same physical campus location.
