Azure Dev Tools Licensing Details

This software is free for Students and Faculty/Staff and the only restriction this program has is that it is for educational use only. The VM license is valid for one year on the date you receive the product key to access it. After that one year is up, the student or faculty member must receive a new product key to continue access. If the student or faculty/staff member is no longer apart of the Fulton Schoool of Engineering or ASU, that VM will still be available for use until the product key expires. After that, they will no longer be able to get a new product key.
