WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition is a combination of WebSphere Application Server and an operating system optimized to run in server virtualization environments. It enables higher hardware utilization, while allowing you to spend less time on installation and configuration and more time on strategic initiatives.

WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition helps you rapidly deploy WebSphere-based applications and the associated operating system. WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V8.5.5 offerings give you more deployment options and enhanced management capabilities for server virtualization environments across different virtualization technologies. They provide key infrastructure components, such as IBM HTTP Server for building enterprise patterns, as well as WebSphere eXtreme Scale client for connecting to enterprise data grids and distributed caches.

WebSphere Application Server offers a broad range of application foundation and programming model choices to support businesses of every size and includes advanced management to help decrease costs and grow your business. WebSphere Application Server allows you and your partners to build a strong foundation and reduce cost through:

WebSphere Application Sever V8.5 provided significant enhancements in terms of developer experience and high end resiliency. For developers who require a quick and simple development run time, the Liberty profile was introduced as a great option for building web applications that do not require the full Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition ( Java EE) environment of traditional enterprise application server profiles.

For administrators and businesses that strive for operational excellence through management efficiency, responsiveness and performance, Intelligent Management capabilities were included in the full profile application server to enable resiliency, virtualization, enterprise-level batch processing, and autonomic responsiveness to problems.

WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 continues this focus with key enhancements to Liberty profile capabilities and qualities of service. It enables clients and partners to build a strong foundation and reduce cost through:

Description
Bottom rule

WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V8.5.5 supports the deployment of WebSphere Application Server virtual images into VMware ESX, PowerVM , and IBM z/VM environments.

WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V8.5.5 is a combination of WebSphere Application Server and the supported operating systems, optimized for appropriate environments. It can take the form of a single application server, a member of a cluster of application servers, or an IBM HTTP server instance.

By deploying and running WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition in virtualized environments, you can better utilize hardware, which can ultimately reduce hardware, power, cooling, and real estate costs. Increased hardware utilization results from virtualization, allowing a single machine to be partitioned into multiple smaller virtual machines, each of which can run an instance of WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition.

Highlights include:

Entitlement for network deployment

WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition also includes the entitlement for WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, which provides flexibility in the adoption of virtual environments. This includes authorization to use any combination of the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment programs up to the level of use specified in your proof of entitlement for WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition. When using WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, you must have a separate license and support entitlement for the operating system. The operating system included in the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition offering is restricted to support of that program.

Flexible deployment options

Flexible deployment options for the IBM HTTP Server component of WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition are available with the IBM HTTP Server for WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition. This offering entitles you to deploy the IBM HTTP Server and the underlying operating system on a stand-alone node without having to purchase a full WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition license.

IBM HTTP Server for WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition is an entitlement-only offering. The HTTP Server code is included in the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition.

Note: In scenarios where the IBM HTTP Server component is deployed on the same node with WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition, a separate IBM HTTP Server for WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition license is not needed nor useful. This usage is covered by the entitlement to WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition. A separate license for IBM HTTP Server is beneficial only when IBM HTTP Server and its supporting operating system are deployed on a node separate from WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition and would otherwise require a full WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition entitlement. In both deployment scenarios, the IBM HTTP Server component may be used only in support of WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition.

The following offerings are available for the virtualization technologies managed by IBM Workload Deployer:

The following offerings are available as stand-alone images for VMWare environments:

(1) Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU table by processor value, brand, type, and model number at the website below) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores. The PVU table can be found at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_sp ecific_virtualization_technologies.html
1

An activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes

Processor Value Unit (PVU) sub-capacity licensing

This software product is eligible for sub-capacity licensing. Customers must accept the terms of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (Attachment), and must obtain PVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) for the maximum processor core capacity available to an eligible sub-capacity product when deployed in an eligible virtualization environment. This is also referred to as sub-capacity or virtualization capacity licensing.

Customers must use the IBM License Metric Tool unless they meet the exceptions described in the Attachment.

For information regarding PVU sub-capacity licensing, including terms and IBM License Metric Tool ordering information, visit

Top rule
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.
