Upcoming Event

OARnet VMware Education Day
Presented by Carahsoft

OARnet delivers technology-based solutions that reduce costs, increase productivity, and improve customer service. As a division of the Ohio Department of Higher Education's Ohio Technology Consortium, OARnet serves Ohio's education communities, public broadcasting, and state and local government entities.

Virtualization Benefits

Virtualization allows IT departments to create a virtual environment at the workstation, server, or data center level. With this virtualization technology, you can reduce the number of physical servers or computers, while still maintaining performance levels. Benefits include:

  • Reduced costs for physical IT hardware (servers, desktops, etc.)
  • Lower operational and maintenance costs when upgrading your IT environment
  • Savings through lower power, cooling, and space costs

Product Details & Pricing

Due to the fact there are over 4,000 products in the OARnet VMware portfolio, a complete price list is no longer published. You may download a list of commonly requested products; however, only a formal quote can confirm the most up to date pricing. View the price list.

As a reminder, once licenses are purchased, they are non-returnable; therefore, we encourage you to reach out to your VMware Technical Account Manager (TAM) to discuss your environment and/or Carahsoft to obtain a formal quote prior to purchase.
