A few month ago at HP Technology Forum in Las Vegas we announced the launch of our new Integrity Nonstop Bladesystem offering. Twice the performance, half the footprint, 100% Nonstop. As part of our launch we also announced a marketing program to give away a free Nonstop to customer who want to get off of a mainframe. You can get the details here: NonStop FREEdom. I don’t want to rehash what we launched, but since we did this, I’ve gone to a number of customers and it seems as though IBM has been offering a few folks some free mainframes. The problem is that I can’t find any public marketing program that talks about these free mainframes. It seems you might have to specifically ask for one. At least we made our Nonstop FREEdom program a public and visible program. In any event, if you happen to need an IBM mainframe, and you’re not getting yours for free, make sure you push a little. Maybe we need to provide you a competitive quote to help you out.
