PartnerWorld membership is required to use these services.
The Linux Test Drive Program
Benefits of the Linux Test Drive Program (no-charge) for the IBM System z
The program allows short-term access to Linux running on IBM System z running as a guest of z/VM that is available at no charge for 30 days (or 60 days if using IBM Middleware such as DB2 or the WebSphere Application Server).
A for-fee, longer term access with additional resources is also available via the "Remote Development Program" if needed.
Note: There are a limited number of engagements available for each offering. Each application will be processed on a first come, first served basis with the available system resources at that time.
