About trials of GitHub Enterprise Server

You can request a 45-day trial to evaluate GitHub Enterprise Server. Your trial will be installed as a virtual appliance, with options for on-premises or cloud deployment. For a list of supported visualization platforms, see "Setting up a GitHub Enterprise Server instance."

Dependabot alerts and GitHub Connect are not currently available in trials of GitHub Enterprise Server. For a demonstration of these features, contact GitHub' 销售团队.
