Overview
Bottom rule

IBM and Red Hat are collaborating to provide you with a new pricing structure for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) for IBM POWER for IBM PowerLinux servers. The IBM PowerLinux 7R2 rack server and the IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node are POWER7® processor-based, Linux only servers, optimized for virtualization, performance, and extraordinary efficiency. Red Hat's new pricing structure for RHEL 5 and RHEL 6 is a cost-effective offering, ideal for traditional and emerging workloads on Linux. Red Hat's new pricing for IBM PowerLinux servers is available directly from IBM and can only be purchased for the IBM PowerLinux 7R2 rack servers (8246-L2C and 8246-L2S) and the IBM Flex System p24L Compute Node (1457-7FL).

RHEL is a Linux-based operating system designed for enterprise environments. RHEL exploits the latest IBM POWER7 and virtualization technologies to help maximize system resources and provides exceptional qualities of service. RHEL includes a broad range of popular open source software components that are easy to install and run on IBM PowerLinux servers.

With Red Hat's new pricing structure for RHEL 5 and RHEL 6, you get increased flexibility and scalability options. You can now deploy RHEL across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

If you are a Power Systems™ client with current RHEL subscriptions, you can upgrade at any time to currently supported RHEL subscriptions at no charge.

Description
Bottom rule

Program delivery

When you order RHEL from IBM, you get an entitlement card with a registration code. You will use this code to successfully download and configure the software.

Support requirement

If you purchase or renew your RHEL subscription, you will need to also purchase support from IBM. A Red Hat policy requires that all Red Hat partners sell a Linux operating system support agreement with any RHEL offering or ensure that a Linux operating system support agreement already covers any server that will run RHEL.

The requirement that a Linux operating system support agreement be in place with the purchase or renewal of a RHEL license can be met in the following ways:

Every RHEL subscription-only offering includes IBM Support access to Red Hat technical resources in the event that IBM needs Red Hat's assistance in problem determination and resolution. In order to assure that Red Hat resources are available to assist IBM throughout the hours of support, IBM is providing clients with the appropriate subscription-only offering. Clients purchasing IBM Support with IBM support coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week must also purchase a RHEL Premium Subscription offering. Clients who are purchasing IBM Support without 24 hour access to IBM may purchase a RHEL Standard Subscription offering.

Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act

IBM makes no representation about the Section 508 status of the third-party electronic and information technology product in this offering. Contact the vendor for specific, current information on the Section 508 status of this product.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for IBM       5639-RHP    Per server
 POWER

Server

Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. For the purpose of server-based licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements for each server that is made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores and partitions in the server or the number of copies of the program on the server.

Notes:

Rack

A rack is comprised of up to 32 node card assemblies and installed in a cabinet with supporting equipment. An entitlement is required for each rack integrated into the system regardless of the number of processor cores installed, and regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions on which the program runs.

Half rack

A half rack is comprised of up to 16 node card assemblies, and installed in a cabinet with supporting equipment. An entitlement is required for each half rack integrated into the system regardless of the number of processor cores installed, and regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions on which the program runs.

QCM

A QCM is a POWER7 quad chip module. Each QCM contains four POWER7 multi-core processor chips in one module.

Ordering information

A product entitlement card with a registration code printed on it will be shipped with every order. Clients will be required to register the Red Hat Linux offering purchased at the following website with the registration code provided on the card. Once registered, clients will be able to download the required code electronically as well as obtain the latest upgrades available for the product purchased.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
