IBM i is turning 25

Twentyfive. i for business.

Celebrate with an IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition and
receive service vouchers and a no-charge license.

IBM i celebrates quarter century of transforming clients' businesses with IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition

In celebration of the historic milestone of the 25th anniversary of IBM i, IBM introduces the IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition available only on the IBM Power 720 and 740 Systems. IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition builds upon all of the values and benefits associated with today's IBM i Solution Edition only for Power 720 and 740 Systems by adding:


The offer

Starting in the same month as the actual anniversary date (June 21, 2013), when you order one of today's existing IBM i Solution Editions, the 25th Anniversary Edition feature (#EU28) will be added to your order, and as a result, all of the new benefits and values will be included.

The IBM i 25th Anniversary Edition represents better value by taking advantage of the combination of IBM systems, IBM software, and ISV applications. Three days' worth of service vouchers can facilitate your migration from older hardware and software, and the no-charge IBM i license makes this package even more economical as a business solution. But maybe the best benefit of all is the fact you have a much broader choice of ISV software: The ISV you choose to purchase from does not have to be a participating member of the IBM i Solution Edition Program.

Certain terms and conditions apply — for complete details including eligible servers, please see our announcement letter, or contact a product specialist at 1-866-883-8901 for more information.
