Try and buy


  • Want to try server, storage, networking or appliances before you decide whether to buy it?
  • Need to be 100% sure about your investment in a new enterprise IT system?
  • Looking to familiarise yourself with new technology without taking any major risks?
  • Can’t get your vendor to agree to try and buy?
  • Want to use a test case to convince management about your future investment?


Nowadays when it comes to software or licences, try and buy has become quite common. That makes perfect sense. After all, seeing is believing – you want to try a solution first to see whether it meets your needs. But try and buy is more difficult to arrange when it comes to server, storage or network hardware. If the equipment doesn’t satisfy the customer’s needs and the customer returns it, opened and used, it can no longer be sold through the regular channels. Fortunately we are able to facilitate try and buy by offering hardware for rent.
