The VMware Users GroupÂ VMUG just announced a partnership with VMware, called the EVALExperience, to offer VMware technology pre-production 365-day licenses as part of the VMUGÂ yearly subscription! It’s now included in the $200 annual VMUG Advantage Subscription fee! WOW!
Your tech lab can now include with the following products:
- VMware vCenter Server
- vSphere withÂ Operations Management
- vCloud Suite
- vRealize Operations
- vRealize Log Insight
- Horizon Advanced
- Virtual SAN
This is a huge announcement. Tech labs are my favoriteÂ methodÂ toÂ keep up with the dramatically changing technologyÂ for as long as I have been in the industry, and fiddling around with constantly-expiring license keys is sometimes more of a hassle than it is worth. Microsoft’s MSDN has helped a lot over the years, and I am pleased to see VMware and VMUGÂ now offering a similar offering.
You can get the hardware for such a lab for a lot less than you’d think! Check out my home lab page for more details.
If you are not already a VMUG subscriber, this should be the final incentive to get out the wallet and sign up!
