How is Amber licensed?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

Amber is licensed software. The distributors of Amber require their users to sign a License Agreement, and HPCVL has done so. The License Agreement restricts usage of the Amber installation to academic research purposes, specifically excluding commercial or contract use. Like with other software, HPCVL requires users who want to use Amber, to read this agreement, and sign a statement that they have done so. The agreement can be downloaded here . Please also download the statement , sign it and return it to us. You will then be included in a Unix user group that has access to the Amber executables.
