Try PicOS at your own pace with no commitments

PicOS-V is a free virtual machine (VM) that can be used to familiarize yourself with PicOS software switches. Prototype network ops, validate configuration, and test features before committing.

With simulated FS, Dell and Edgecore switches, there’s no need to wait for hardware. PicOS-V runs on VMware, GNS3 and VirtualBox hypervisors, without the need for a bare-metal switch or specialized hardware.
