One of the questions we get asked a lot in the DevCentral Community is, ‘How to I get a #Trial or #Lab #License?’ There are a few easy ways to test f5 services.

First, you can go to the page. There, you can select various options to meet your needs. Simply click on the Get the free trial button, enter the pertinent info and off you go.

Out in the Cloud, you can get a free, full featured 30-day trial as well as access to F5 premium support on AWS, Azure, GCP and Alibaba.

If you need a perpetual, single use Lab license to do your own testing, learning, practicing, you can purchase a Lab License for around $100 or so depending on where you go. 





FYI: CDW requries a US based credit card and delivery address to complete any purchase.

FYI: I can ship LAB Licenses to any email location. You can contact me via my site (

We can offer Lab Licenses in the UK. 

F5 have some stipulations :-

  • We can only supply to a Ltd / Plc company - not to individuals. 
  • The email address cannot be a free one - so gmail, googlemail, yahoo, outlook etc. type domains are not allowed.

In terms of what we offer, it comes with 5yrs support on the lab license.
