DataMirror Expands IBM High Availability Pricing Promotion
In conjunction with IBM’s recently announced High Availability Rebate Promotion, business partner DataMirror Corp. (Toronto) is now offering a special pricing promotion on its High Availability Suite for AS/400, effective through July 31.
The rebate program announced by IBM on Feb. 1 offers customers a 10 percent rebate on hardware costs for customers who purchase a new AS/400 model 720, 730 or 740 and license DataMirror’s High Availability Suite or iCluster software, before June 23. With its announcement this week, DataMirror hopes to further entice AS/400 customers looking to implement high availability solutions with an additional offer of a special discount on a second High Availability Suite or iCluster license for a backup AS/400.
In addition, DataMirror is offering those customers who take advantage of the promotion a free, on-site high availability workshop. They may also be eligible to obtain a free, limited-time license for DataMirror Transformation Server, a data integration tool for use with multiple databases.
“Consolidating human, financial and information resources means greater availability of critical systems,” says Nigel Stokes, chairman, president and CEO of DataMirror. “With this promotion, DataMirror is pleased to offer customers all the high performance tools they need to complete their server consolidation projects quickly and economically.”
DataMirror’s High Availability Suite and iCluster can be downloaded from the company Web site (new window).
