Independent software vendors (ISVs) who are members of IBM PartnerWorld are eligible to participate in several System z remote offerings. These offerings provide remote access to a variety of IBM software, operating systems, and hardware for the purposes of developing, testing, porting, and validating their applications on IBM System z.
System z Remote Development Program
The System z Remote Development Program expands the breadth and quality of System z solutions by providing ISVs with a readily available and inexpensive environment in which to develop, port, and test their applications.
Development environments available through the System z Remote Development Program include z/OS, z/VM, z/VSE, and Linux® on System z. Each environment runs as a guest under IBM z/VM which provides the ISV a high level of system control.
Validation Program for z/OS
The Validation Program for z/OS enables PartnerWorld members to validate their solutions on an IBM System z platform running the latest levels of z/OS. ISVs are provided with 60-days of remote access at no charge to a z/OS system.
Linux on System z Test Drive
The Linux Test Drive enables PartnerWorld members to develop, port, and test drive their solutions on IBM System z platforms. The offering allows ISVs access to Linux running guest of z/VM at no charge for 30 days (or 60 days if using IBM middleware such as DB2 or the WebSphere Application Server).
