The Linux Test Drive Program and Test Drive Limited Program
Benefits of the Linux Test Drive Program (no-charge) for LinuxOne and IBM z Systems
The Test Drive offering allows short-term access to Linux running on IBM z Systems running as a guest of z/VM that is available at no charge for 90 days.
For those ISVs that are new to the z Systems platform and require additional time to develop their offerings., the Test Drive Limited offering allows extended short-term access to Linux running on IBM z Systems running as a guest of z/VM that is available at no charge for 180 days.
A for-fee, longer term access with additional resources is also available via the "Remote Development Program" if needed.
Note: There are a limited number of engagements available for each offering. Each application will be processed on a first come, first served basis with the available system resources at that time.
