IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 products include:

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 is designed to provide device management capabilities such as automated system discovery, provisioning, data replication, configuration, and performance monitoring for storage systems and storage networks. It helps storage administrators conduct device management for multiple storage arrays and Storage Area Network (SAN) fabric components from a single integrated console.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.1

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.1 offers the same features as Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 but at attractive entry-level pricing for operations with smaller capacities. It is licensed per storage device, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units. It may be a better option for small to medium businesses that need help to reduce the complexity of managing IBM System Storage DS3000, DS4000® and DS5000, IBM Storwize V7000, and IBM XIV Storage System devices by helping administrators configure, manage, replicate data, and monitor performance of their entire storage infrastructure from a single console.

Licensing Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for inactive storage (use case: replication)

With the convergence of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication software function into the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 license, there are some of your deployments that will not necessarily need to license all terabytes of storage identified by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center as being managed under Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. This applies only to inactive or standby storage where you are not monitoring performance or provisioning storage via Tivoli Storage Productivity Center with that inactive data store. Some existing Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication software product deployments fall into this category. Such deployments only need to license Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 for the storage at the primary (or active) data store (in replication terms, referred to as source data). For example, if you are managing your primary data of 100 terabytes (TB) with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 and using the replication functionality to replicate 100 TB to another data store that is on standby for disaster recovery; and then that same data is replicated again to a third data store that is only on standby for disaster recovery, you need to license only 100 TB of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 rather than 300 TB.

Migration from Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.x products to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.x

With the introduction of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1, the current set of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center products have been converged into a simpler and smaller set of license options. Current Tivoli Storage Productivity Center product licensees are entitled one-to-one in quantity to one of the new Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 license offerings as described below. If you have software entitlement that is not in Passport Advantage® , the movement of entitlement may be initiated by you through your IBM representative with either new software license purchases or new software subscription and support renewals and reinstatements. If you have Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.x entitlement in Passport Advantage , effective immediately you will be converted automatically to the corresponding Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.x entitlement as described in this section. This change does not entitle you to any refunds for software licensing. Executing this change may also require you to transfer entitlement records, which are not currently in Passport Advantage , over to Passport Advantage .

There will be no conversion or exchange of terabyte values according to the capacity tiers in which they were originally purchased. The migration path for each Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.x product offering is described below. These migration paths also apply to V3.x and prior Tivoli Storage Productivity Center offerings. You should contact your IBM representative if there is any discrepancy.

Products with a current charge metric of per server

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition V4.x (5608-WB1)

If you are currently using IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition V4.x (typically as part of an IBM System Storage Productivity Center installation), you will continue to have support for this product version and release. The first maintenance release of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 will allow you to upgrade to the latest V5.x code build with the new user interface for IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition V4.x licensees. However, Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition will not release with its own V5.1 product ID when V4.2 is withdrawn from marketing. After V4.x is withdrawn from marketing, new sales of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Basic Edition will not be offered.

Products with a current charge metric of per storage device (enclosure)

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Select (also called at one time Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Midrange Edition) (5608-E14)

If you are current on software subscription and support for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Select (also called at one time Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Midrange Edition), you are entitled to the new Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.x (5608-PC2) offering with a one-to-one mapping for each storage device entitlement purchased.

For example, a customer currently has a license for 10 storage devices of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Select. That customer will show 10 storage devices of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition V5.x (5608-PC2) in their entitlement after migration.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select (5608-PCS)

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select was recently introduced to provide the functions of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition with a per storage device charge metric. If you already have Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select (5608-PCS), you should contact your IBM representative to discuss migration options available to you.

Products with a current charge metric of per tiered terabyte (TB)

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Two Site Business Continuity (5608-WB2) and Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Three Site Business Continuity (5608-WB3)

If you are current on software subscription and support for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Two Site Business Continuity (5608-WB2) or Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Three Site Business Continuity (5608-WB3), you are entitled to the new Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select Edition (5608-PC2) offering with a one-to-one mapping for each terabyte of entitlement purchased. Note the implications of the licensing direction given in the paragraph above for Licensing Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for inactive storage (use case: replication) .

Some examples are provided for clarity.

Example 1

A customer has 200 TB of storage managed by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. 100 TB is at a primary data store and 100 TB at a secondary data store. Therefore, the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Two Site Business Continuity license is for 100 TB. The customer only actively manages the primary data store (100 TB), and the secondary data store (100 TB) is inactive with its primary purpose as standby storage in a disaster recovery scenario. The customer will be entitled to 100 TB of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1.

Example 2

A customer has 200 TB of storage managed by Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. 100 TB is at a primary data store and 100 TB at a secondary data store. Therefore, the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication Two Site Business Continuity license is for 100 TB. The customer activity manages and uses all 200 TB of data at both sites. The customer will be entitled to 100 TB of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1. Assuming the other 100 TB is actively managed under Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, the customer will need to purchase an additional 100 TB of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk (5608-WC4)

If you are current on software subscription and support for Tivoli Productivity Center for Disk, you are entitled to the new Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (5608-PC1) offering with a one-to-one mapping for each terabyte entitlement purchased.

For example, a customer currently has a license for 150 TB of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk that are distributed across multiple tiers (12 TB in tier one, 20 TB in tier two, 32 TB in tier three, 36 TB in tier four, and 50 TB in tier 5). That customer will show 150 TB (100 TB in tier one and 50 TB in tier two) of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.x (5608-PC1) in their entitlement after migration.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition (5608-WC0) and Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Data (5608-WC3)

If you already have Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition (5608-WC0) or Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Data (5608-WC3), you should contact your IBM representative to discuss migration options available to you.

For VMWare ESX 3.0.x, 3.5.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x:

Storage resource agent fabric configuration restrictions

The storage resource agent should not be configured to issue commands on any system that sends Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) commands over a fibre channel to a removable media drive. Removable media drives may not be able to queue commands sent by the storage resource agent under normal operations and it is likely to result in the application, using the removable media drive, to time out. This restriction can be addressed by not installing the storage resource agents on these systems, disabling the fabric functionality of the storage resource agent, or by configuring the storage resource agents to avoid the removable media systems.

Network Attached Storage (NAS) system requirements

The following requirements are for installing and running Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 distributed products within a NAS environment.

Server - not applicable. You cannot install the server component on a NAS filer. Refer to the Windows , UNIX , and Linux requirements for information about installing the server on different operating systems.

Agent - You must install the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 data agents on machines that have access to the NAS filers that you want to monitor within your environment. The agent that is logging into and scanning the NAS filer is not required to be in the same domain as the user or the NAS filer. If you install the agent in a different domain than the NAS filer, which will be scanned by the agent, the domain of the agent machine must be a "trusted domain" from the perspective of the NAS filer's domain. You do not install agents to the NAS filers themselves.

Standalone client and command line interface (CLI) - not applicable. Refer to the Windows , UNIX , and Linux requirements for information about installing the client on different operating systems.

NAS - The NAS filers within your environment must be visible to the machines where you install Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 products. NAS filers must be configured as a member of a Windows domain.

Installability

For AIX and Linux x86, the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 database is automatically upgraded during the installation of the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 server. After this database upgrade, the user can no longer run a previous version of the server with the database.

As a normal precaution, it is recommended that a full database backup be performed before installing the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 code, as well as after completing the installation.

As part of a migration plan from previous IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center versions, clients and servers may be upgraded at different times. After upgrading the server, you may use the Scheduled Agent Upgrade feature to plan and schedule the migration of supported clients to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1.

Notes

Note 1: On RHEL 6, a multi-server installation will be needed because the Tivoli Integrated Portal and Tivoli Common Reporting component can not be installed on RHEL 6.

Note 2: Support for IBM DB2 itself varies across different operating systems and hardware platforms. IBM DB2 9.5 and 9.7 require 64-bit kernel on Linux and AIX operating systems.

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a readme file, or other information published by IBM , such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language.

Planning information

Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express® . Product upgrades and technical support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software, and technical support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

Packaging

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 products are distributed with:

This program, when downloaded from a website, contains the applicable IBM license agreement and License Information, if appropriate, and will be presented for acceptance at the time of installation of the program. For future reference, the license and License Information will be stored in a directory such as LICENSE.TXT.

Security, auditability, and control

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.1 products use the security and auditability features of the operating system software. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Licensing metric definitions

Storage Device

Storage Device is a unit of measure by which the program is licensed. A Storage Device is an independently powered, channel attached device that stores or controls the storage of data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate Storage Devices. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Storage Device that runs, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every Storage Device on which the program is installed. Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the Storage Devices managed by the program.

Tiered Terabytes (1-100), (101-250), (251-500), (501-750), (751-1,250), (1,251- 2,000), (2,001+)

Terabyte (1-100), Terabyte (101-250) Terabyte (251-500), Terabyte (501-750), Terabyte (751-1,250), Terabyte (1,251-2,000), and Terabyte (2,001+) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number of terabytes available to the program. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for licensee's environment. The entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with entitlements of another program.

Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain terabyte entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the program. The storage managed is the total allocated size of all volumes managed by the program.

Pricing examples

Ordering information for Passport Advantage

Passport Advantage allows you to have a common anniversary date for Software Subscription and Support (SW S&S) renewals, which can simplify management and budgeting for eligible new versions and releases (and related technical support) for your covered products.

New software purchases will initially include twelve full months of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance). Software Subscription and Support in the second year (the first year of renewal) can be prorated to be coterminous with your common anniversary date. Thereafter, all Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) will renew at the common anniversary date for twelve full months of Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance).

Refer to the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement and to the IBM Software Support Handbook for specific terms relating to, and a more complete description of, technical support provided through Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance).

The quantity to be specified for the Passport Advantage part numbers in the following tables is per storage device and per terabyte. To order for Passport Advantage , specify the desired part number and quantity.

Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage . It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated, or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
