IBM is providing unprecedented access to the LinuxONE server to foster innovations by developers in the open source community. IBM is creating the LinuxONE Community Cloud to provide open access to the development community. The cloud acts as a virtual R&D engine for the creation, testing and piloting of emerging applications including testing linkages to engagement systems, mobile applications and hybrid cloud applications.
Marist College and Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies plan to host clouds that provide developers access to a virtual IBM LinuxONE at no cost. As part of the program, IBM also will create a special cloud for independent software providers (ISVs) hosted at IBM sites in Dallas, Beijing and Boeblingen, Germany, that provide application vendors access and a complimentary trial to LinuxONE resources to port, test and benchmark new applications for the LinuxONE platform.
New financing models for the LinuxONE portfolio provide flexibility in pricing and resources that allows enterprises to pay for what they use and scale up quickly when their business grows. The new LinuxONE systems are available today. Sign-up for a complimentary LinuxONE Community Cloud now.
