VMLogix Launches IT Initiative for Higher Education

VMLogix, Inc., a provider of virtual machine management solutions designed for software companies and IT organizations, today announced a new initiative focused on providing budget-saving cloud technology to higher education. The VMLogix Education Program provides free subscriptions and support of the award-winning VMLogix LabManager™ and VMLogix LabManager™ – Cloud Edition available to approved universities and educational institutions worldwide enabling them to create on-premise infrastructure and leverage the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for cost and time-savings.

“VMLogix LabManager – Cloud Edition is an efficient and comprehensive way for us to provide a test bed for students in our computer science classes,” said Gedaliah Wolosh, manager of computing resources at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. “Additionally, if and when our population and needs grow, VMLogix will make it easy and cost-efficient to scale-up our infrastructure in the Amazon EC2.”

“With VMLogix LabManager, we will be able to easily manage and automate the deployment of test environments in generally varied and large groups while controlling user access and specific capabilities,” said Antoine Hauck, system administrator at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. “These are huge benefits to our classes, students and IT administrators. Before, the method was manual distribution of VMware images to the students, which meant students had to have VMware Workstation software installed on their clients and that took a lot of our administration’s time.”

VMLogix LabManager is a powerful virtual lab management solution that enables IT administrators to use any of the leading virtualization platforms to consolidate virtual lab infrastructures and enables end users (i.e., students) to gain access to lab resources in a policy controlled, automated and self service manner. Institutions can dramatically reduce the manual effort, time and IT resources required to develop and maintain their required environments by using comprehensive automation capabilities, advanced team management and seamless integrations with leading solutions.

VMLogix LabManager – Cloud Edition leverages Amazon EC2 for virtual lab automation in the cloud, offering on-demand access to virtual lab tools and computing infrastructure resources over the web from any location. Most importantly, Cloud Edition enables a pay-for-what-you-use pricing model: leveraging the elasticity of the cloud to reduce upfront capital expenditures by instantly scaling up or scaling down the lab infrastructure when required, and only paying for what is used.

The VMLogix Education Program offers:

  • A license for the latest release of VMLogix LabManager or VMLogix LabManager – Cloud Edition at no cost for one year.
  • Complimentary access to VMLogix product support for the first year, including email, knowledge base and user forum support channels. There will be email support for up to three (3) cases in a calendar month.

“IT departments at colleges and universities manage some of the most complex networks, and many have the need for virtual lab automation but may not have the financial resources to acquire a solution and illustrate to department and university heads how virtual lab tools like LabManager can enable IT operations to be more efficient and cost-effective,” said Sameer Dholakia, CEO of VMLogix. “Because budgets are tighter than usual right now, we’re offering this program to approved institutions as a way to jump-start their virtual lab automation initiatives both in on-premise infrastructure as well as the public cloud for free so that they can receive the benefits and be able to quantify the savings.”

How to Request a Free Copy for Your University/Education Institution

1. Instructors, researchers, students, IT or an appropriate representative from the institution should visit www.vmlogix.com/education to request a free license. A valid university email address (.edu or .org) is required to register.

2. VMLogix sales will respond with instructions on how to access the product. Those instructions will include a deployment guide, product documentation and a license key for the software.
