Overview
Bottom rule

IBM i, running on an IBM Power Systems™ server, offers a highly scalable and virus-resistant architecture with a proven reputation for exceptional business resiliency. Running business applications based on IBM i has helped companies over many years to focus on innovation and delivering new value to their business, not on managing their data center operations.

IBM i 7.1 delivers database, management, virtualization, and Web application serving enhancements, enabling clients to reduce costs, improve service, and manage risk of their IT infrastructure.

The integrated DB2 database for IBM i is enhanced with support for XML, enabling clients to store and search XML documents within DB2 for i and to create XML documents from relational data. DB2 for i is also enabled to support the calling of field procedures, which can allow a partner application to transparently encrypt a specific column in a database table, enabling clients to further protect sensitive information.

IBM i storage management further leverages SSD technology by automatically moving data that is accessed most frequently to SSDs to help clients improve application performance.

IBM i virtualization support is enhanced to offer increased flexibility for running multiple IBM i releases on a single server to support a broad scope of applications as well as to simplify the migration to IBM i 7.1. Specifically, PowerVM VIOS or IBM i 6.1 can host the storage of IBM i 7.1 partitions. In addition, IBM i 7.1 can host the storage of IBM i 6.1, AIX®, and Linux® partitions.

IBM i Web application serving technologies are enhanced with updates to Apache, Java, Integrated Web Application Server, Integrated Web Services Server, and Zend Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) environment, enabling clients to extend existing applications to the Web, improving service provided to clients, suppliers, and partners.

IBM i integration with BladeCenter and System x via iSCSI technology is enhanced with support for software target support, additional operating system support (VMware VSphere 4.0, Windows® Server 2008 R2) and a new installation wizard.

IBM i 7.1 is supported on Power Systems servers and blades with POWER7™ processors, Power Systems servers and blades with POWER6/6+ processors, System i® servers with POWER6™ processors, and System i servers with POWER5/5+ processors.

Upgrades to IBM i 7.1 are supported from IBM i 5.4 and i 6.1, including all supported machine code levels for those releases.

The BladeCenter PS700 is in the IBM i P05 processor group. The BladeCenter PS701 is in the IBM i P10 processor group and the BladeCenter PS702 is in the IBM i P10 processor group.

Description
Bottom rule

  • DB2 enhancements
    • DB2 for i 7.1 adds support for the XML data type. This includes defining it as a column, passing it as parameters to routines, and using it as a variable. It also includes the ability to search these documents using the enhanced XML capability that exists in the OmniFind™ Text Search. In addition, XML documents can be decomposed (shredded) into relational columns based on annotations within an XML Schema. An XML Schema Repository is introduced to store information about an XML Schema to allow for document validation or decomposition.

      DB2 for i 7.1 also contains functions needed to generate XML from relational information. These XML publishing functions allow a developer to retrieve information from the relational database and generate/publish this information as a well-formed XML document, including the elements, attributes, and comments typically found in an XML document.

    • DB2 for i also adds the ability to call a field procedure (exit routine) that can modify the contents and size of the data on insert, update, and read operations. This capability can be used in many ways, but the most popular way will be to provide encryption of data based on business logic. For example, adding an encryption/decryption field procedure to a specific column of a file would then cause that file to be encrypted with no application changes. At insert or update time, the field procedure will encrypt the data, while at read time, the field procedure could choose to decrypt or not based on criteria that is within the procedure.
    • For application developers, DB2 for i enhancements such as MERGE, Array support, Global Variables, and the REPLACE option on CREATE allow for more powerful and efficient programming. The Currently Committed option allows an application to avoid update locks while still retrieving a consistent view of the data by having the database find the version of the data that has already been committed and not waiting for the current update to commit or roll back.

      With i 7.1, transactions can now span Independent Auxiliary Storage Pools (IASPs), allowing for a more gradual migration of data and business logic to IASPs. Creation of a three-part alias that includes the remote system will remove the requirement to connect to the remote systems as the database will do that implicitly for the client application.

      New functions, including WebSphere® MQ functions, allow the developer to add capabilities into their applications. Incorporating SQL into existing applications is easier in i 7.1 with the ability to consume result sets within RPG, COBOL, and C and C++ routines.

    • IBM i 7.1 delivers performance enhancements for the database. Adaptive Query Processing (AQP) builds on top of the leading-edge SQL Query Engine to allow the database to detect whether a query is using a suboptimal plan -- and then modify that plan while the query is running to significantly improve performance.

      SQE also supports select/omit logical files, logical files in the FROM clause and sparse indexes in 7.1, allowing more queries to reap the benefits of SQE. Encoded Vector Indexes (EVIs) can now contain summary information, allowing for superior indexing strategies, particularly in a data warehousing environment. In addition to the ability to place tables on solid-state drives (SSD), which is supported in IBM i 6.1, a file can now be marked as in-memory to reduce the IO cost when reading that file. Also, supporting expressions on the CALL statement and the ability to inline some user-defined functions (UDFs) will provide a performance boost in some applications.

    • For the administrator, new tooling is added to monitor long-running operations such as an index build, a text search index build, ALTER TABLE, and reorganize. The SQL_CANCEL procedure is added to cancel long-running queries. The type of I/O (Random or Sequential) executed against a file is now available, providing more information when making the determination about whether to place a certain file on SSD. Partitioned tables are an option in more environments in i 7.1 so tables with identity columns and referential constraints can now be partitioned.
    • STRJRNLIB and CHGJRNOBJ now allow name criteria to be specified, giving clients additional flexibility to control what journaling gets started implicitly. By applying PTF MF49429, Remote Journaling is significantly enhanced with filtering capability to control which entries get sent, reducing the network bandwidth required. Remote journaling allows an automatic restart when it ends because of a communications failure.
  • Storage management
    • IBM i storage management is enhanced to further exploit the I/O performance delivered through SSD. Through storage management and DB2 advanced placement support, IBM i can help clients get the right data onto the SSDs to improve the performance of long-running batch jobs and queries.
    • IBM i hierarchical storage management support is enhanced through the automatic collection of I/O performance data and the movement of the most active data to SSDs. Now clients can predetermine when they want to trace I/O activity and balance data between SSDs and hard disk drives (HDD).
    • IBM i storage management is enhanced:
      • To more efficiently identify and be faster in moving hot data to the SSDs
      • To enable setting the priority with which data is moved to SSDs
      • To sweep SSDs and move objects that do not belong based on media preference to HDDs
      • To offer command options to move cold data off SSD and hot data onto the SSD
  • Virtualization of I/O resources including storage can reduce costs while improving IT infrastructure flexibility. There are multiple I/O virtualization options available to IBM i partitions running on Power Systems.
    • IBM i 6.1.1 partition can host I/O resources for another IBM i 7.1 or 6.1 partition on POWER6 or POWER7 processor-based servers.
    • IBM i 7.1 partition can host I/O resources for another IBM i 7.1 or 6.1.1 partition on POWER6 or POWER7 processor-based servers.
    • IBM i 7.1 partition can also host I/O resources for AIX 5.2, 5.3, and 6.1 partitions, and Linux (SLES 9, SLES 10, SLES 11, RHEL 4, and RHEL 5) partitions on POWER5™, POWER6, or POWER7 processor-based servers.
    • PowerVM VIOS 2.1.3 provides virtualization capabilities and can host I/O resources for IBM i 7.1 and 6.1 partitions on POWER6 and POWER7 processor-based servers and blades.
    • PowerVM VIOS 2.1.3 with IBM i 7.1 and 6.1.1 partitions supports adding a virtual Fibre Channel adapter into an Active Memory™ Sharing environment.
    • IBM i 6.1.1 with MF47832 and MF48674 or IBM i 7.1.0 with GA CUM applied and PowerVM VIOS 2.1.3 now support the following tape media libraries via NPIV:
      • 3573 (TS3100/TS3200) with LTO3 and LTO4 tape drives
      • 3576 (TS3310) with LTO3 and LTO4 tape drives
      • 3577 (TS3400) with TS1120 and TS1130 tape drives
      • 3584 (TS3500) with LTO3, LTO4, TS1120, TS1130, and 3592-J1A tape drives
  • Web application serving
    • The IBM HTTP Server for i continues to be based on Apache HTTP Server. An updated, PCI-compliant release of Apache is included with IBM i 7.1.
    • IBM i 7.1 supports updated IBM Technology for Java 32- and 64-bit environments. The Java Development Kit (JDK) also referred to as the classic version of Java is no longer included with IBM i 7.1. All Java-based applications should be migrated to the IBM technology version of Java prior to the upgrade or installation of IBM i 7.1.
    • The IBM i Web administration interface is enhanced. A client is no longer required to have *ALLOBJ special authority to create and manage Web application servers. An administrator can now grant developers and operators permission to create and manage Web application servers. Enhancements are also made to make it easier to monitor, search, and receive notification of the contents of log files for Web-based servers.
    • The Integrated Web Application Server is enhanced to support the latest versions of Java available with IBM i 7.1.
    • The Integrated Web Services Server is enhanced, providing significant performance improvements for the Web Services runtime environment. In addition, the Web Services run time now supports static Web Services Description Language (WSDL), recognizing WSDL files that have been created and updated by the user. Using the Web Administration interface, users can modify the automatically generated WSDL file and use this customized file.
    • Zend Server Community Edition for i is preloaded with IBM i 7.1, 6.1, and 5.4. Zend Server Community Edition for i is available to IBM i clients with one year of Silver support from Zend for no additional charge. Register at zend.com in order to enable the one year of Silver support. Zend Server Community Edition for i replaces Zend Core for i and provides additional functionality, integration with IBM i, and enhanced performance. Zend Server Community Edition uses FastCGI support between ILE Apache and PHP, which eliminates the second copy of Apache and reverse proxy requirements from the software environment needed to run PHP on IBM i. Zend Server Community Edition for i also provides a Java connector, byte code acceleration, and a caching API. Zend Server Community Edition for i is also available from Zend at zend.com.
  • Systems management
    • Systems Director Navigator for i is enhanced to allow clients to work with multiple systems from a single interface using the 'Set Target System' support. From the Web-based Systems Director Navigator interface, a client can manage a different IBM i system or partition by selecting the target system. Once this new system or partition has been selected, all data returned to the Director Navigator interface is for this new system or partition. System Director Navigator for i 7.1 can manage a target IBM i 5.4, 6.1, or 7.1 system or partition. With the Set Target System feature, the Systems Director Navigator management server runs in one place; one browser can be used to manage multiple environments and management is extended to IBM i 5.4 environments.
    • Systems Director Navigator for i now includes 5250 emulation portlet. Users can now access a 5250 window from the Systems Director Navigator interface, making it easier to use a single interface for managing IBM i systems.
    • Systems Director Navigator for i, Performance Data Investigator is enhanced to include Disk Response Time bucket perspectives and an IBM Technology for Java Memory perspective.
  • Availability enhancements
    • With IBM i 7.1, Auxiliary Storage Pool (ASP) encryption can be enabled or disabled at any time. In previous releases, encryption could only be enabled at the time the ASP was configured. In addition, with IBM i 7.1 the ASP encryption key can now be changed.
  • Integration with BladeCenter and System x
    • IBM i integration with BladeCenter and System x via iSCSI technology is enhanced with support for software target support, additional operating systems (VMware VSphere 4.0 and Windows Server 2008 R2), and a new installation wizard.
    • Software target: IBM i integration with BladeCenter and System x via iSCSI technology is enhanced with support for Software Target. The solution supports a 1Gb/10Gb Ethernet connection between IBM i and BladeCenter and System x servers, which can improve performance and lower the cost of the solution. IBM i uses standard Power Systems Ethernet network interface cards to provide the iSCSI connection for the BladeCenter and System x servers.

      IBM i supports running iSCSI software targets along with iSCSI hardware targets. Software target also supports both iSCSI hardware initiators and iSCSI software initiators. To take advantage of 10 Gb Ethernet speeds, the software initiator is required on the BladeCenter and System x servers.

    • Additional operation systems
      • VMware ESX 4.0 - i 6.1 / i 7.1 (hardware initiator only)
      • VMware ESXi Embedded 4.0 - i 7.1 (hardware initiator only)

      • Support to transform existing Spool Files to PDF format.
      • Additional bar codes: The AFP-to-PDF transform can now render all the bar code types listed for the DDS BARCODE keyword. These include the popular USPS Intelligent Mail and 2D bar code symbols.
      • AFP™ font support: The transform will convert AFP font resource objects to Type 1 or Type 3 fonts embedded in the PDF to preserve text content and appearance. This new feature provides text support for many additional languages.
      • The Host Print Transform (QwpzHostPrintTransform) API is enhanced to use Transform Services to enable customer applications to convert existing *AFPDS and *SCS spooled files to PDF. Refer to the API documentation in the IBM i Information Center for details.
  • Network upgrade enhancements
    • IBM i can now be upgraded from an image on the network. An IBM i 6.1 environment on POWER6 processor-based server can be upgraded to IBM i 7.1 with an image on a network file server. See information APAR II14482 for PTF and setup information.
  • Install media changes
    • IBM i 7.1 supplied DVD media sets now consist of three unique language groups. Each language group will contain approximately one-third of the supported 51 languages. See information APAR II14482 for PTF and setup information.
  • Program conversion

    Starting with i 6.1, IBM uses machine interface (MI) architecture to significantly improve programs. Both new and previously existing programs can take advantage of the latest system enhancements, including even stronger system integrity, improved performance, and a range of new operating system and processor capabilities. To make these improvements, all MI programs created for a release before 6.1 must be converted, in order to run on i 6.1, 7.1 or a later release. MI programs include Integrated Language Environment® (ILE) and original program model (OPM) programs.

    To convert a program, its creation data (a subset of observability) must be available. MI programs retain creation data by default, so most programs can be converted, going all the way back to programs originally created for System/38™. Even if an option was taken to remove creation data from external access, Licensed Internal Code (LIC) can still access the creation data if the target releases of the program and its constituent modules are V5R1, or later. So, a program may lack sufficient creation data for conversion when the program or at least one of its modules was created for OS/400® V4R5 or an earlier release and creation data was explicitly removed. Clients and ISVs are responsible for ensuring that programs have creation data for the conversion process.

    To help plan for your upgrade from a release before i 6.1 to 6.1 or a later release, a new command, ANZOBJCVN, is available for i 5.4 or i5/OS® V5R3 to check your programs. First download the appropriate ANZOBJCVN PTFs from IBM. ANZOBJCVN identifies programs that do not convert, if any, and estimate the times required for program conversions. It also includes information about two other types of conversions: integrated file system names and spooled files. For more information, refer to the IBM Redpaper REDP-4293, IBM i Program Conversion: Getting Ready for 6.1 and Beyond, by visiting

    http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpapers/abstracts/redp4293.html

    This document includes PTF numbers and much more information about conversions and ANZOBJCVN.

Planning information

Planning statements provide insight into IBM's current plans, directions, and intent, and are subject to change or withdrawal without notice. Any reliance on these planning statements is at the relying party's sole risk and will not create liability or obligation for IBM.

IBM plans to withdraw the AT&T dial accounts for connecting to IBM for electronic customer support requests. These AT&T dial accounts will no longer be available for use with the release following IBM i 7.1. If you were creating your service configuration with a local dial or remote dial connection type and using the IBM-supplied AT&T telephone numbers, you will be affected by this change. It is recommended to connect to IBM with a direct internet connection for electronic customer support requests. If you must continue to use a dial account, you will need to use your own Internet Service Provider (ISP) beginning with the release after i 7.1. You can make this change now with the current IBM i release you are running on your system.

IBM plans for i 7.1 to be the final release to support the Communications Trace Analyzer plug-in to IBM i Navigator. An enhancement in the i 6.1 release (PTF SI33685) allows a communications trace to be dumped into the Packet Capture (PCAP) format used by other trace analysis tools. It is recommended that you use a tool that can analyze the communications trace data in PCAP format rather than the communications trace analyzer. In the i 6.1 release, you need to create a data area named QCMNTRCPCP in library QGPL prior to issuing the Dump Communications Trace (DMPCMNTRC) CL command. The existence of this data area will result in the data being dumped in the PCAP format. In the i 7.1 release, the DMPCMNTRC command has a new Stream file format keyword, FORMAT, where *PCAP can be specified.

Per Processor Core Pricing

A processor (commonly called a CPU or core) is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. It is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of processors based on the level of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server.

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Concurrent User is a shared user access to the program within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed only on one computer or one server. The total number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program at any moment in time may not exceed the highest number of Concurrent Users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Concurrent User simultaneously accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Electronic Software Delivery for Initial Software Orders

The capability to order electronic software delivery for initial software orders will be available on May 25, 2010.

Initial orders placed for many Power software products including IBM i 5.4, i 6.1. i 7.1, AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, PowerVM, and IBM Systems Director Editions will now be supported for Electronic Software Delivery (ESD). Customers will have the option of selecting either physical or electronic delivery. Programs ordered for ESD will have download images provided on Entitled Software Support (ESS) Web site

http://www.ibm.com/servers/eservers/ess

These are the same images as provided on the CD / DVD media shipped for physical orders. This capability enables customers to receive software products electronically without the need to receive or handle physical media and fits well with customer strategies to utilize network or virtual media installation.

Customers placing ESD software orders will be informed of their fulfilled software orders via an e-mail or physical package shipped from IBM. For customers currently registered with the ESS Web site, an e-mail with software order information will be sent to the e-mail address on file with the ESS Web site. Customers who have not yet registered to the ESS Web site will receive a letter from IBM informing them of their software order availability. The letter provides the customer number, software order numbers, and system number information, which may be used for ESS Web site registration. Once registration has been completed, the Downloads support provided by the ESS Web site may be accessed.

Electronic Delivery of upgrade orders via ESD continues to be available for Power software including i 5.4, i 6.1, i 7.1, AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, PowerVM, and IBM Systems Director Editions.

Electronic Software Update Orders

Entitled Software Update (ESU) is a way for customers to self order their Power software release upgrades via the Entitled Software Support (ESS) Web site without the need to go to their seller to place the upgrade order. Entitled Software Update (ESU) orders for Electronic Software Delivery (ESD), will now be available in all countries. ESU orders for Power software including i 5.4, i 6.1. i 7.1, AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, PowerVM, and IBM Systems Director Editions will be placed on the Entitled Software Support (ESS) Web site

http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/ess

Customers should generally select electronic delivery when ordering via ESU, but do have the ability to select physical delivery. Programs ordered for ESD will have the same download images provided as on the CD / DVD media shipped for physical orders. Countries requiring physical delivery of License Information documentation will have these documents shipped separately. This physical shipment will not delay the immediate availability of the ESD images for customer download.

ESU Customers placing ESD software orders will be able to immediately proceed to the "Downloads" Web site support for program access, instead of waiting for delivery of a physical package shipped from IBM. For ESD orders, an e-mail with software order information will be sent to the e-mail address on file with the ESS Web site.

Customers choosing physical delivery will also have the electronic images available for ESD download.

Try and Buy Support for IBM i and Keyed Software Programs

Electronic software download of the IBM i stacked media set for IBM i 5.4, i 6.1, and i 7.1 will now be made available for Try and Buy support. This provides the same Try and Buy capabilities for both electronic and physical media deliveries. The download images are the same as would be provided if physical media had been ordered.

Customers who are registered on the ESS Web site may access i software program images for trial use purposes. Prior to electronic download, the customer will be presented with the trial use program software terms and conditions documentation. The trial use software terms must be accepted before access to the requested version trial use software download images will be provided. A trial use program will operate without a permanent software key for a period of 70 days after initial program install. To have the installed program run beyond the 70-day grace period, a software order for the program must be placed. Once the software order has been fulfilled, an entitlement record and a permanent software key for the program will be provided on the ESS Web site. A permanent key for each entitled software program must be downloaded and installed to provide for continuous software program operation.

Customers may use the Try and Buy support to download earlier versions of a currently entitled software program. Software keys created for previously entitled software programs may be requested from the Key Center by sending an e-mail to: keysup@dk.ibm.com.

Media charge

A media charge will be billed to Power software customers ordering physical delivery of media or publications. The billing charge will apply to both initial and upgrade software orders. No media charge will be billed to customers choosing Electronic Software Delivery (ESD).

The physical media charge for Power software will appear under the following programs:

5722-SS1 IBM i V5 Operating System
5761-SS1 IBM i V6 Operating System
5770-SS1 IBM i V7 Operating System
 
5722-NLV IBM i V5 National Languages for i

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.
