KanREN is pleased to offer a webinar to share a new, discounted purchasing opportunity for VMWare products available through our membership with The Quilt, a national coalition of about forty research and education networks. Join KanREN, Carahsoft and Yellow Dog for this one hour briefing on the VMWare Purchasing Program on Thursday, Oct 27, 2016 at 11am CST.
After completing a comprehensive RFP process, the Quilt signed an agreement with Carahsoft providing substantial discounts off the academic pricing for all VMware products. Join us for a brief overview from Carahsoft and Kansas reseller partner, Yellow Dog, about the benefits of virtualization, and this purchasing opportunity that KanREN members can leverage thru this pre-competed, non-protestable contract available to all authorized Quilt buyers including KanREN’s higher education and K-12 members.

Side Note: The primary benefit to KanREN members is consortium driven discounts available through broad participation. The Quilt has leveraged a quantity-driven pricing discount that increases as participation grows. As a Quilt member, KanREN is extending information to members regarding this purchasing program!
