VMAP - VMware Academic Program

The VMware Academic Program (VMAP) is a comprehensive program designed specifically for academia. The program allows users to gain easy access to the latest resource virtualization technologies. The program accelerates teaching and research in the rapidly growing area of virtualized infrastructures by providing faculty and students access to virtualization technologies commonly used in commercial environments.

What is included in the program

See the list of software.

Each product is limited to only one license.

Who can use the program

FI students - on their home computers for one year with the possibility of renewal if they are taking an FI course focused on virtualization tools or participating in an FI research project or an FI research lab. They can use the software without reinstallation after the end of the course or research project until the end of their studies at FI.

FI teachers - on their home and office computers, if they are FI employees and their job is to teach virtualization technologies, conduct non-commercial research or provide VT administration. They are required to uninstall the software upon termination of employment.

FI computer labs - for the purpose of teaching virtualization tools, the software can be installed on teaching computers and shared with other teaching computers.

FI Research Labs - SW can be installed on computers in a research-oriented lab or a lab dedicated to teaching virtualization technologies.

If you are interested in a use that is not explicitly stated or adequately explained here, do not experiment and contact the program administrator instead.

When the program cannot be used

The software cannot be used to create the necessary faculty infrastructure. The vSphere licenses obtained under this program cannot be used to virtualize desktop environments for normal work.
