For trainings, Magento provides an VirtualBox Ubuntu VM with a version of Magento described as "Magento Enterprise Lite".

  • What are the key differences between EE and EE Lite?
  • Is this version of Magento publicly available?
  • Is there anything preventing developers from using this for EE development?


I know how to obtain it. Any thoughts on what the license agreement is with this version and what the limitations are?

    Re license, I'm sure that is specified in the TOS for the training material. Likely NDA'd and academic use only; my guess anyways.

It is licensed for training use only. Any commercial use is a violation of those terms.

  • That's what I was looking for. Any thoughts on what features it lacks from regular EE?

  • FPC for sure, possibly checkout depending on the version.

  • yes, you need to register for one of the free trainings....
  • not really, as there is no mechanism that checks for the license

more details:

  • register for http://www.magentocommerce.com/training/on-demand (it's a checkout process)
  • you will receive access to some Magento U portal stuff (login into your MagentoCommerce acount, then click on Magento U)
  • in there after you tick a checkbox about terms and conditions you get access to EE Lite (not sure which version is in there now).
