IBM Academic Initiative

Building skills for a Smarter Planet

Lease or purchase IBM Power Systems at a discount

We offer special discounted lease and purchase options to educational institutions whose faculty are members of the IBM Academic Initiative. Both options feature discounts on the hardware and the IBM operating systems, and additional IBM software is included at no added cost. IBM Academic Initiative members can also download thousands of IBM software products at no charge.

For more information on the lease and purchase options, as well as the software available, refer to these Educational Lease and Purchase Options documents. (Power Systems can run AIX, IBM i and Linux, or any combination of these three operating systems, simultaneously. Choose the document for the operating system you want to configure as your primary system.)

*This option is not available in all geographic regions.
