As the new rack hardware is quite expensive I have e question: Which is better, to rent or to buy ?
-60 session of rack hours would be 1200USD
-a complete rack would cost me around 12000USD
Obviously the numbers are in favor of renting. Even if you resell the rack in 6-12 months you can't loose less that 1200 USD.
Now let's say you have 6 months of dedicated study. You are doing contracting and decide to take a 6 months break so you can fully use the 60 sessions or rack time you bought and achive your goal: the holly CCIE#.
Are there any problems/disadvantages in renting a rack ?
