IBM Introduces Pricing, Enhancements for Linux on S/390 Servers

Major Software Companies Agree to Support Pricing Strategy

"These enhancements make it easier for S/390 customers to get down & dirty with Linux - 02 Aug 2000: said Nancy Roath, VP of S/390 brand marketing, Enterprise Systems Group at IBM. "Customers can run Linux as a separate facility, safely away from the production environment -- and at a lower cost."IBM middleware for Linux for S/390 such as DB2 Universal Database Enterprise Edition Version 7, DB2 Connect Version 7, WebSphere Advanced Edition Version 3.5 and Java JDK Version 1.2.2, will be available later this year. In addition, Tivoli Systems plans to ship several core management applications for Linux for S/390 by the end of this year. As part of IBM's efforts to make pricing more uniform, these products will be priced consistently on all IBM Linux environments -- Intel, RISC and S/390 -- with comparable terms and conditions.

Virtual Image Facility and the IBM S/390 Integrated Facility for Linux will be available on September 29, 2000.
