Six good reasons to use these services

Hardware Support for your IBM Z equipment

Get the support you need with these options: basic proactive support, electronic downloading for specific fixes, IBM Z tool support, optional around the clock assistance, failed media retention, and more.

IBM Z on-off capacity on demand

Enable temporary hardware capacity by day instead of paying full-time. Turn on and off additional processing units when needed. Pay additional charges only for days the units are on.

IBM LinuxONE elastic pricing

Take advantage of the IBM pricing capability that can save you money and reduce capital expenditures. Choose the pay-for-use model – either through a fixed lease or a variable usage payment. Or select the utility pricing model where a contracted usage rate is based on your configuration.

Improve IBM Z uptime with automatic notification of crucial software problems and real time access to databases and fixes.
