If your business uses current N+1 models of IBM POWER systems which run either or both IBM i or AIX operating systems, we recommend an IBM software maintenance contract (IBM SWMA).
When IBM first release a new operating system, it can be a crucial time period in terms of software updates and associated fixes.
For this reason, we normally recommend customers retain IBM software maintenance for the first three-to-four years of the life of new IBM POWER servers.
With our long-standing relationship as an IBM Gold Business Partner, Blue Chip can swiftly arrange an IBM support contract that suits your needs, rapidly ensuring that you are protected and are best-placed to receive relevant updates and fixes for your platform.
If you're in the position where your systems are four years old or more, or when IBM withdraw support, you may want to consider a Blue Chip legacy AIX OS support contract or our legacy IBM i OS support contract.
