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 "关于 GitHub Enterprise Server."

Security alerts and GitHub Connect are not currently available in trials of GitHub Enterprise Server. For a demonstration of these features, contact GitHub 的销售团队. For more information about these features, see "关于 Dependabot 警报" and "管理 GitHub Connect."

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

如果不确定 GitHub Enterprise Cloud、GitHub Enterprise Server 或二者是否最适合你的组织,请联系 GitHub 的销售团队。 如果您的组织有 11 个或更少的开发人员,请考虑 GitHub Team;拥有 12 个或更多开发人员的组织通常从 GitHub Enterprise 中获益最大。 有关详细信息,请参阅“GitHub 的计划”。
