You're better off checking the *actual license* that is included with
the current version, rather than a marketing blog, because nowhere does
it include permission to redistribute it. That would be surprising too,
since downloading it requires registering an account with Nvidia and
answering a questionnaire.

The part you're referring to makes it deployable within an organization,
but given the above it cannot be bundled with an engine.

I'd love to be proven wrong here.
