Purchase VMware

  1. Select Products

    Please visit the VMware products page to determine the products you are interested in purchasing.

  2. Download the appropriate Virtualization Order Form for your institution type:

    Among the fields on this form that you must complete is a Product Quote Tool that you will use to select the products and services you require and determine the associated costs. Your institution’s OARnet Client Service Representative can assist you in using the quote tool.

    Special note: the Ohio End-User License Agreement (EULA) negotiated in the master VMware contract supersedes any click to accept EULA embedded in the Software downloaded from VMware.

  3. Issue a purchase order, interdepartmental transfer (IDT) or procurement card order.

    Issue payment based upon the quote, and submit it with a completed and signed Virtualization Order Form by e-mail, fax or mail to OARnet.

Post Ordering

Once reviewed by an OARnet Client Services Representative, your order will be forwarded to VMware representatives, who then will provide you with the new product keys and download instructions. Once the orders and downloads have been completed, VMware will be directly responsible for providing you with product support (available through your VMware portal or by calling 1-877-486-9273).
