    If you were offered full admin rights to an operating systems, access to 2620 routers and switches over the Internet, would you pay a small hourly fee to use them?

    Same here. It's also a bit confusing as to whether you are asking about training use or real world use.

    Regarding the OPs question, other companies already do this, so the concept works.

    It would depend on my situation and what I was preparing for.
    For example, if I'm travelling quite a bit, having equipment on hand wouldn't work. If I'm preparing for the CCNP or CCIE I'd need access to real equipment (if not at my hands then at least remote access).

    But renting space usually isn't the cheapest route to go.

    Hi there! If anyone would like more information you can PM me or post your question in this thread and I would be happy to provide any information I can. In answer to Nugget it is for training, helping prepare for certs, not for real world use to store or use on a daily basis. For Sunn, it would be ideal for those traveling or don't have resources to use.

    Okay, thanks for clearing that up. In that case I probably would use it if I was studying for Cisco qualifications.

    Other than that, as mentioned there are other providers that offer the same services but another one wouldn't hurt, especially if the prices and services were competitive.:biggrin
