The Grid and Grow package offers seven chassis-based blade servers powered by processors from Intel, AMD or IBM, along with a choice of grid scheduling software and consultancy services to help with planning and implementation.
Companies can choose from a series of operating systems, including Linux, Windows and IBM's AIX version of Unix.
Priced at $49,000, IBM said that it does not expect the price of the bundle to be the main attraction, but rather that the system comes pre-tested and preconfigured.
Customers currently seeking to build a grid have to construct it from scratch themselves, picking an operating system, grid management software and the hardware.
The associated complexity has deterred smaller organisations from adopting the technology, according to IBM.
"A key element of the grid market that has been missing is an easy 'on ramp' for customers considering this technology," Al Bunshaft, vice president for grid computing at IBM, told vnunet.com.
"Customers understand the benefits, but many don't feel that they have the depth or skill in their IT staff to take on the technology."
Joe Claby, practice director at analyst firm Summit Strategies, believes that the Grid and Grow package is a good way to "conquer the fear" of grids.
"This is an enticing way to get people involved in grids," he told vnunet.com. "Once they realise how cool they are, they will buy them more and more."
A grid allows organisations to create a cluster of servers that pool resources and act as a single computer. The technology is considered to deliver cheaper heavyweight computing power than traditional large servers and mainframes.
While the definition of a grid differs from vendor to vendor, IBM's offering targets organisations in areas including financial services, healthcare and engineering where grids are used for modelling and analysis.
Although grid technology in theory has little to do with Linux, IBM chose Linuxworld as the venue to unveil the technology bundle.
In practice organisations often use Linux to power the bundled servers because of the cost benefits associated with the operating system.
"Linuxworld is the perfect environment because these customers are one and the same," said Bunshaft.
