MIDAS Knowledge Base
Can I download a trial version of MIDAS to run on my server?We offer two editions of MIDAS - a cloud-hosted edition, and a self-hosted edition (where you download, install, and run MIDAS from your own server). See our comparison of self and cloud hosted options for more information on the differences between the two editions.
In addition to the readily avilable functional online public demo of MIDAS, we're also able to offer no-obligation, private, 30-day trials of MIDAS.
These completely FREE trials are hosted on our servers, and may be activated by visiting mid.as/free-trial.
Unfortunately, we're only able to offer free trials of our software which are hosted on our servers. However, a cloud-hosted trial system should provide all the insight you'll need to be able to determine whether the functionality within MIDAS is suitable for your particular scheduling needs, regardless of whether you're ultimately considering purchasing either a "cloud" or "self" hosted edition.
The reason we're unable to offer a "downloadable" trial version of our room booking system is simply due to the nature of our software. It is difficult for us to revoke, disable, or expire our software once it's been installed on a 3rd party web server.
If you're considering a self hosted MIDAS system but are concerned whether it'll run on your server, be sure to check out the server requirements. On our Server Requirements page you'll also find a handy Server Readiness Tool. This free tool may be downloaded and run on the server you intent to run a self hosted system from, to check that it's capable of running MIDAS scheduling software.
