Affordable technology upgrades

Stay on top of your IT infrastructure

Move up to IBM’s next generation technology and obtain a huge boost to your capacity and processing performance with potentially minimal budget impact. IBM Global Financing can help you free up cash—generate savings faster—and potentially lower your monthly payments—when you replace your existing technology with IBM’s newest processors.

For IBM leasing clients, IBM Global Financing can help you upgrade your existing machines to the latest IBM technology with in-place upgrades.

Same machine, new processor, lower payments

If you currently lease IBM Power or Storage mid-range or high-end technology through IBM Global Financing, you can upgrade your machines at mid-lease by replacing your existing upgradeable components with IBM’s latest technology; simply swap the old components for new, in the same machine.

A technology refresh at mid-lease is the ideal time to upgrade. At this point, you can refinance your remaining obligation over a new term, potentially lower your monthly payments and create budget room to cover the upgrade costs.

IGF Helps Power Systems’ clients lower costs and manage risk

The example above shows a mid-lease upgrade of an IBM Power 595 server with POWER6 technology to POWER7™. The new processor provides substantial advancement in performance, energy-saving features and virtualization capability--yet the customer’s new monthly payment is actually 4 percent lower than its current monthly payment.

For enterprises requiring a side by side, non-disruptive move to the latest IBM technology, we can customize a financing arrangement that lets you migrate workloads to new IBM technology.

IBM Technology Exchange

If you’d prefer to perform a side-by-side, non-disruptive move to the latest IBM technology rather than an in-place upgrade you can take advantage of our IBM Exchange offerings. They are available for select mid-range and high end Power (IBM Power Exchange) and Storage (IBM Disk Exchange systems). Check out highlights of this offering in the short video below:

The IBM Technology Exchange Offerings are available to both current IBM leasing customers and those that own their equipment. Clients who own their IBM equipment can also consider a sale-leaseback to free up cash to acquire the latest IBM technology.
