Tailored Fit Pricing for IBM Z delivers simple, flexible, and predictable cloud-like pricing, with economies of scale for all workloads on IBM z/OS
Tailored Fit Pricing for IBM Z® is a transformational pricing option for IBM Z software. It offers simple, transparent, and predictable pricing for IBM Z software running on the z/OS® platform within a given country.
Tailored Fit Pricing introduces two comprehensive alternatives to the Rolling 4 Hour Average (R4HA)-based pricing model, for both new and existing workloads:
- The Enterprise Consumption Solution is a tailored consumption-based licensing model.
- The Enterprise Capacity Solution is a tailored full-capacity licensing model.
Both models dramatically simplify the existing pricing landscape, delivering flexible deployment options that are tailored to reflect the client’s individual environments.
Both models include additional capacity for development and test environments as well as reduced pricing for all types of workload growth.
For more information, please see the announcement letter.
“With Tailored Fit Pricing, we don’t have to worry about predicting demand anymore. Instead, we can leave on capacity—and pay only for what we use. ” — Terry Glover, Director of Infrastructure, Dillard’s.
