Overview

Top rule

IBM and Red Hat collaborate to enable you to order Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8 for Power from IBM. RHEL 8 delivers a shared foundation for both the emerging and current worlds of enterprise IT. The next generation of Red Hat's leading enterprise Linux platform helps fuel digital transformation strategies across the hybrid cloud, where organization use innovations like Linux containers and Kubernetes to deliver differentiated products and services. At the same time, RHEL 8 enables IT teams to optimize and extract added value from existing technology investments, helping to bridge demands for innovation with stability and productivity.

RHEL 8 introduces the concept of Application Streams to deliver userspace packages more simply and with greater flexibility. Userspace components can now be updated more quickly than core operating system packages and without having to wait for the next major version of the operating system. The availability of RHEL 8 also completes the transition to little endian Linux for POWER systems.

For the latest details about the RHEL 8 server, see the Red Hat website.

For more information about Linux and IBM, see the IBM Linux Servers website.

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 a RHEL subscription, you will also be required to purchase support directly from IBM or from Red Hat. Selecting IBM Support allows for a unified support strategy for all IBM Power Systems products. Red Hat partners are required by Red Hat to sell a Linux operating system support agreement with any RHEL offering or ensure that an in-place agreement 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:

  • Clients who want IBM Support should select the IBM Operational Support Services - SupportLine for Linux on Power Systems servers (5771-LNX, 5773-LNX, or 5775-LNX). Clients who select IBM SupportLine should not select the RHEL combined Subscription and Support features that IBM offers.
  • Clients who want Red Hat support should select one of the RHEL combined Subscription and Support features that IBM offers.

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 help 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. If clients are purchasing IBM Support with IBM support coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, they must 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.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
