IBM recognizes the growing adoption of mobile devices by our customers and support POWER8 servers using Quick Response Codes. All POWER8 servers are shipped with a QR Code fixed to the server.
In Addition to the use of QR Codes, IBM has also created Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) videos to aid customers with servicing and replacing parts on their POWER8 servers. They are available on YouTube
Starting in July, the service labels shipped with certain IBM BladeCenter, System x, and Flex System compute nodes will provide direct access to installation and parts replacement videos, error messages webpages, service parts listings, and more support related information.
