IBM software licenses available from Covenco
The licence implications for the products are platform specific:
IBM POWER i and iSeries Servers
iOS or OS/400 will be pre-loaded and licenced at a specific level for each system. Please specify which level you require. If you are purchasing a complete system (a new footprint) licenced at a currently supported OS level, you have 30 days to register the system with IBM and to purchase Software Subscriptions.
This is not mandatory, but failure to do so will incur a penalty if you join the scheme at a later date. All additional licences (QU1, ST1 etc) will need to be either transferred from a dormant machine within your Enterprise (with the same processor banding or greater) or purchased new from an IBM Business Partner.
Processor On Demand (POD) systems will be licenced for OS/400 for the base configuration as a minimum with licences available for additional CPUs in some circumstances.
IBM POWER p and pSeries Servers
AIX will be pre-loaded, for test purposes, at a version of your choice. However, before the system is placed in a live environment (by live, this can mean development, production, live H/A etc.) a licence must be purchased. The licences are banded according to machine type and processor quantity.
When purchasing a new machine, you are still required to purchase AIX and the costs to licence a used machine are the same. Regardless of your intended use, Covenco recommend a licence be purchased and your Covenco account manager can advise you on which products have a license requirement and the costs associated.
If you do require additional Windows or Linux licenses we can provide these and please ask your sales representative for a quotation.
