UC Berkeley has signed a campus-wide agreement with VMware to provide their virtualization software to qualified members of the academic community. Students, faculty, and technical staff may download and install VMware products at no cost through the IST-sponsored VMware Academic Program subscription. This includes VMware Workstation, Fusion, vCenter, vCloud Suite, and vSphere (limited to a single license key per product, per user).
UC Berkeley and VMware have partnered with Kivuto Services as our fulfillment partner. You will be redirected to their website for your downloads. Evaluation licenses are good for 365 days. You will need to obtain a new license every year and you may need to reinstall the product.
To download software, go to http://ucbwah.onthehub.com(link is external) (CalNet ID required).
Some of the VMware software is intended for advanced users and may be destructive to your computer. It is advisable to participate in the training available through this program before using any of the vCloud and/or vSphere products.
This software is not available to students, faculty or staff who no longer attend or are no longer an employee of UC Berkeley.
IMPORTANT: Software cannot be used to support infrastructure. If you require production level services please email email@example.com(link sends e-mail) for information on hosted virtual machines and/or dedicated VMware environments.
