IBM Power 5 Services Withdrawal

  • IBM

They may seem a long way out – but considering how many clients are still on 9406 520’s and 9406 570’s this is a timely reminder that you need to dust down your IBM Upgrade plan and give us a call.

Whilst for many it may be a surprise we have been expecting this announcement for some time. In a bid to ensure that IBM Power clients are driven to supported hardware and software, IBM have finally announced dates for when their maintenance services will terminate on what is the complete range of types, models and features of Power 3, Power 4 and most importantly Power 5.

So just for reference I have attached the list here – with end dates.
