New! IBM Advanced System Placement for XIV Storage: Financing Option

To help organizations more easily and efficiently manage their growing data volumes and adopt cloud storage solutions quickly, IBM recently announced a new pricing program that offers high-performance storage systems without the heavy up-front costs.

The new IBM Advanced System Placement program for clients is a pay-as-you-go program that lets organizations purchase IBM XIV storage systems for only a fraction of the price upon installation. Only when the system reaches a predetermined capacity threshold will the client be charged for the full balance of the system. At that time, a second unit will be delivered for only $1. The cycle continues and clients only pay for the full balance of subsequent systems when they reach the threshold, and an additional system is delivered for an additional $1.

Financing Option for IBM Advanced System Placement
A financed version of the Advanced System Placement program is available through IBM Global Financing. By combining the Advanced System Placement program with a hardware lease program, payments become predictable and manageable.
