IBM announced that rebates from $10,000 to $40,000 are available when an iSeries model 810 is purchased for use as a high availability backup system. The purchase must be made along with high availability software from iTera or another authorized vendor, and the transaction must be completed by Dec. 31, 2003.
This rebate translates into a significant savings on the server portion of a high availability solution. In addition, iTera is including their Reorganize While Active product during this promotion at no charge when iTera's Echo2 High Availability product is purchased along with any model 810 that is to be used as the HA backup system. The value of RWA alone is as much as $15,000 depending on the processor level.
"IBM's model 810 promotion is an excellent opportunity for companies that have been thinking about high availability to begin an initiative," said Dan NeVille, President of iTera. "The total cost of ownership for high availability keeps dropping and this promotion adds another strong incentive for small and medium companies to make the leap. HA is particularly affordable when this offer is paired with our full-featured Echo2 High Availability software, which typically costs less than 50% of most other iSeries HA software."
NeVille continues, "When companies also receive our Reorganize While Active software at no extra charge with this promotion, they will have the ability to reorganize files without downtime, enabling companies to take yet another step forward in their efforts to realize continuous data availability."
