The Power of education

With the IBM i and selected Power Systems™ servers, valuable education and services vouchers are included at no additional charge. Vouchers are designed to help you more fully understand and use the advanced features and capabilities of IBM i. Vouchers are only available with selected new Power Systems servers, and vouchers are not available with system upgrades. Service vouchers are valid for 5 years beyond the ship date and education vouchers are valid for 3 years beyond the ship date. See below for the list of systems, and in addition, selected POWER6® systems can still be registered and eligibility will be verified.
