Setting up a trial of GitHub Enterprise Server

You can try GitHub Enterprise Server for free.

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 more information about GitHub Enterprise Server, and for a list of supported virtualization platforms, see "About GitHub Enterprise Server."

Dependabot alerts and GitHub Connect are not currently available in trials of GitHub Enterprise Server. For a demonstration of these features, contact Equipo de ventas de GitHub. For more information about these features, see "About Las alertas del dependabot" and "Connecting your enterprise account to Nube de GitHub Enterprise."

Trials are also available for Nube de GitHub Enterprise. For more information, see "Setting up a trial of Nube de GitHub Enterprise."

Si no estás seguro si Nube de GitHub Enterprise, GitHub Enterprise Server, o ambos son la mejor opción para tu organización, contacta a Equipo de ventas de GitHub. Si tu organización tiene 11 desarrolladores o menos, considera a GitHub Team; las organizaciones con 12 desarrolladores o más habitualmente se benefician más de GitHub Enterprise. Para obtener más información, consulta "Productos de GitHub".
