OpenVMS for Universities: Campus-wide Software License Grant

What is CSLG?

The VSI CSLG Program provides software licenses and right to minor versions to all qualified institutions. The program consists of VSI OpenVMS operating system and layered products.

Do I qualify?

The Educational Institution may qualify for the VSI CSLG Program if it is non-profit and is lawfully operating either as an accredited college or university; a vocational, technical or trade school system; a state or local school system, or an independent primary or secondary school exclusively for non-profit educational purposes. The Educational Institution includes only those majority owned non-profit subsidiaries that provide education and/or research. Majority owned is defined as greater than 50% ownership by the Educational Institution.

Use of VSI CSLG licenses is limited to Institutional administrative system use only. Administration computer systems are defined as computers in the Institution’s departments that are responsible for maintenance and supervision of the institution and separate from the faculty or academics. They include student affairs, financial management, physical plant management, safety and security, public affairs and general policy planning and other such functions solely used for the operation of the institution. Research, teaching, classroom and student use is not available under this CSLG license Agreement. If you are interested in teaching or learning OpenVMS, consider using our Student Kit which is a package of the FreeAXP Alpha emulator and OpenVMS already installed and configured on it, ready to run on your Windows machine.

Is it free?

An annual membership fee is required to participate in the VSI CSLG Program. This annual fee provides the license and the right to minor versions for all products in the VSI CSLG product portfolio products listings, as well as the provision of the PAKs that allow execution of the licensed software, to be used only during the term of the membership. This annual fee provides the license and right to minor versions of each product in the available portfolios to each of the computers that are port of the program, and also provides the product Authorization Keys (“PAKs”), which allow execution of the licensed software.
