<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>Same Vagrant Workflow</h2>
<p>
"vagrant up," "vagrant ssh," "vagrant destroy." The same Vagrant
workflow you know and love. Vastly improve your work environments
without having to re-educate your team.
</p>
</div>
<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>Unparalleled Performance</h2>
<p>
VMware <em>screams</em>, with industry-leading performance<sup>1</sup>
based on the same hypervisor technology in use by 98% of the Fortune 500.
Get all the performance gains paired with the ease of use of Vagrant.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>Rock Solid Stability</h2>
<p>
The VMware hypervisor has been in production use since 1999.
All their products share the same, robust core that powers
the world's largest organizations. With the VMware provider, Vagrant
now runs on the strength of the same foundation.
</p>
</div>
<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>Uncompromised Portability</h2>
<p>
VMware virtual machines run on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
Vagrant provides support for both VMware Fusion (Mac OS X) and
VMware Workstation (Linux and Windows), which are able to run
the same virtual machines across multiple platforms.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>Professional Support</h2>
<p>
Every purchase of the Vagrant VMware provider comes with
direct email support. VMware products themselves are eligible for
professional support from VMware. Someone always has your back
in case things are not working as well as they should be.
</p>
</div>
<div class="col-sm-6">
<h2>&hearts; Open Source</h2>
<p>
Vagrant is free and open source. While the VMware providers
are not, the revenue is used to continue to develop, support,
and grow Vagrant and the community around it.

<h2>Do you offer a trial for the Vagrant VMware plugins?</h2>
<p>
We do not offer a trial mechanism at this time, but we do offer a
30-day, no questions asked, 100% money-back guarantee. If you are
not satisfied with the product, contact us within 30 days and you
will receive a full refund.

<h2>Do you offer educational discounts on the Vagrant VMware plugins?</h2>
<p>
We offer an academic discount of 10% for the Vagrant VMware plugins.
However, we require proof that you are a current student or employee
in academia. Please contact support with <strong>any one</strong> of
the following forms of proof:
<ul>
<li><p>A picture of your current university ID</p></li>

<h2>I already own a license, am I eligible for an upgrade?</h2>
<p>
Existing license holders may check their upgrade eligibility by
visiting <a href="http://license.hashicorp.com/upgrade/vmware2015">the license upgrade center</a>.
If you are eligible for an upgrade, the system will generate a
unique discount code that may be used when purchasing the new
license.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Do I need to pay for upgrades to my license?</h2>
<p>
The Vagrant VMware plugin licenses are valid for specific VMware
product versions at the time of purchase. When new versions of
VMware products are released, significant changes to the plugin code
are often required to support this new version. For this reason, you
may need to upgrade your current license to work with the new
version of the VMware product. Customers can check their license
upgrade eligibility by visiting the
<a href="http://license.hashicorp.com/upgrade/vmware2015">License Upgrade Center</a>
and entering the email address with which they made the original
purchase.
</p>
<p>
Please note: your existing license will continue to work with all
previous versions of the VMware products. If you do not wish to
update at this time, you can rollback your VMware installation to an
older version.

<h2>Where can I find the EULA for the Vagrant VMware Plugins?</h2>
<p>
The <a href="/vmware/eula.html">EULA for the Vagrant VMware plugins</a>
is available on the Vagrant website.

<h2>Do you offer incentives for resellers?</h2>
<p>
All our reseller information can be found on the
<a href="/vmware/reseller.html">Reseller Information</a> page.

<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Do you offer bulk/volume discounts for the Vagrant VMware plugins?</h2>
<p>
We certainly do! <a href="mailto:support@hashicorp.com?subject=Bulk Discounts">Email support</a>
with the number of licenses you need and we can give you bulk pricing
information. Please note that bulk pricing requires the purchase of
<em>at least 150 seats</em>.

<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Since each license comes with two "seats", can I use one seat for the Vagrant VMware Fusion plugin and one seat for the Vagrant VMware Workstation plugin?</h2>
<p>
Unfortunately this is not possible at this time. The Vagrant VMware
Fusion plugin and the Vagrant VMware Workstation plugin are separate
products and cannot be shared in this manner. We apologize for the
inconvenience.
</p>
<p>
We do offer a 50% discount off the purchase of the other Vagrant
plugin for individual users and qualified candidates. Certain
restrictions do apply. Please <a href="mailto:support@hashicorp.com?subject=Multi-discount">email support</a>
to find out if you qualify. Unfortunately we cannot retroactively
apply this discount, so please email support before making your
purchase.

<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>I accidentally bought the wrong Vagrant VMware plugin, can I switch?</h2>
<p>
Sure! Even though the Vagrant VMware Fusion plugin and the Vagrant
VMware Workstation plugin are different products, they are the same
price and fall under the same EULA. As such, we can transfer the
license for you. Please <a href="mailto:support@hashicorp.com?subject=Transfer License">contact support</a>
for assistance. Be sure to include your original order number. You
may be asked to confirm details your purchase to verify the
authenticity of your request.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Does this include the VMware software?</h2>
<p>
The Vagrant VMware Plugin requires the separate purchase of VMware
Fusion/Workstation from VMware. The VMware product is not bundled
with the plugin.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Why is the Vagrant VMware plugin not working with my trial version of VMware Fusion/Workstation?</h2>
<p>
While we have not been able to isolate to a specific issue or cause,
the Vagrant VMware Fusion and Vagrant VMware Workstation plugins are
sometimes incompatible with the trial versions of the VMware
products.
</p>
<p>
Please try restarting your computer and running the VMware software
manually. Occassionally you must accept the license agreement before
VMware will run. If you do not see any errors when opening the
VMware GUI, you may need to purchase the full version to use the
plugin. We apologize for the inconvenience.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Can I use VMware Workstation Player?</h2>
<p>
<em>Some</em> features of the Vagrant VMware Workstation plugin will
work with VMware Player, but it is not officially supported. Vagrant
interacts with VMware via the VMware API, and some versions of
VMware Workstation Player do not support those APIs. When in doubt,
please purchase VMware Workstation Pro to use all the features
supported by the integration.
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
<h2>Do I need VMware Fusion/Workstation Pro or just the regular version?</h2>
<p>
The Vagrant VMware plugin is compatible with both the regular and
Pro versions of VMware Fusion and VMware Workstation. However, some
advanced features (such as linked clones), are only supported by the
Pro versions of the VMware software.
</p>
<p>
Please consult the VMware documentation to determine which features
are supported by the Pro and non-Pro versions to determine which
product you need to purchase.
