IBM i Solution Editions are a combination of IBM i and Power Systems* packages along with the ISV solutions you use to run your business every day. Solution Editions mitigate the risks associated with adopting new business technologies and speed implementation time for upgrading hardware and software. By registering your new POWER9 server as an IBM i Solution Edition, you get access to discounted and no-charge software as well as IBM Systems Lab Services vouchers that reduce the overall cost of acquisition and maximize return on investment.          
 
To give your business a “boost” as we head into the second half of the year, we’re announcing the IBM i Solution Edition Booster Pack available from June 9-September 30. With the Booster Pack, when you spend the specified amount to acquire software, support and/or services from any IBM i PartnerWorld-registered ISV (they do not have to be registered in the Solution Edition program), you are eligible for the IBM i Solution Edition Power Systems S914 4-core or 6-core machine. All acquired services, support or software must be applicable to the newly ordered IBM i Solution Edition machine.
 
The IBM i Solution Edition Booster Pack doubles the amount of IBM Systems Lab Services vouchers received with each IBM i Solution Edition. For the 4-core Power Systems S914, the vouchers will double from half a day to a day, and for the 6-core Power Systems S914 the vouchers will increase from one day to two one-day vouchers. These vouchers can be redeemed with IBM Systems Lab Services to assist with infrastructure and operating system upgrades, performance tuning, security assessments, workshops and more. They may also be redeemed by any participating IBM Business Partner providing registered services.
 
In addition to these offerings, this past November we also announced NVMe support for IBM i. NVMe, or Non-Volatile Memory Express, is an open logical device interface that reduces I/O overhead and improves system performance. By utilizing NVMe with the IBM i Solution Edition, the overall solution price is reduced dramatically, and system performance is improved even further.    
 
To take advantage of the Booster Pack, head to the IBM i Solution Edition page to learn more about the program. To qualify, simply show proof of purchase from any ISV to your IBM seller or Business Partner and they will order your new Power Systems S914 as an IBM i Solution Edition. Reach out to IBM i Product Marketing Manager Brandon Pederson (bwpeders@us.ibm.com) will any questions or help needed.
 
Remember, the IBM i Solution Edition Booster Pack is a limited time offer- June 9, 2020 to September 30, 2020. Get the “boost” you need to improve performance and jumpstart your business.
