The Bull Software Subscription option entitles you to the latest available releases of AIX and other associated software, such as compilers or high availability solutions . This annual subscription enables you to get new major releases (providing major feature enhancements or functions) as soon as they become available. Minor maintenance releases are part of the Bull support contract.
Purchasing a support contract is mandatory for Software Subscription.
The list of eligible products may be found at http://support.bull.com/ols or may be obtained from your Bull marketing representative or Bull Business Partner.
Bull Software Subscription can be purchased with an initial license. For all the products, apart from AIX and PowerVMâ„¢, Bull Software Subscription is provided at no additional charge for the first year.
Customers who already own product licenses without valid subscription can enroll in the Software Subscription program through the After-License option, on a product-by-product basis.
