Overview

Top rule

Effective April 24, 2018, and July 20, 2018 IBM® will withdraw from marketing the selected IBM Power Systems™ features listed in the Withdrawn products section. On or after the effective dates of withdrawal, you can no longer order these features directly from IBM. Field-installed features associated with the machine types not listed in this announcement continue to be available.

Major update support for x86-based (7042) HMC hardware appliances will end in 2018. From 2019, HMC updates will only support Power®-based (7063) HMC appliances. However, software fix support for existing in-support releases for the x86-based HMC appliance will remain unchanged. See the IBM POWER® code matrix website for the lifecycle of releases for the hardware appliance.

You can obtain the products on an as-available basis through IBM Business Partners.

If you have a continuing need for these machines/model types, go to the IBM Certified Pre-owned Equipment website to check on availability or utilize the request a quote to communicate your specific requirements. IBM Certified Pre-owned Equipment has the largest inventory of used IBM systems that are refurbished, tested, and warranted for a minimum of 90 days.
