IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition

The IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition builds upon all of the values and benefits associated with today's IBM i Solution Edition only for Power 720 and 740 Systems by adding:

Starting in the same month as the actual anniversary date (June 21), when you order one of today's existing IBM i Solution Editions (see features below), the 25th Anniversary Edition feature (#EU28) will be added to your order, and as a result, all of the new benefits and values will be included:

The IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition represents better value by taking advantage of the combination of IBM systems, IBM software, and ISV applications. Three days' worth of service vouchers can facilitate your migration from older hardware and software, and the no-charge IBM i license makes this package even more economical as a business solution. But maybe the best benefit of all is the fact you have a much broader choice of ISV software: The ISV you choose to purchase from does not have to be a participating member of the IBM i Solution Edition Program.

IBM i is turning 25. Join us in our celebration by purchasing your very own IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition.
