Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.
Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.
Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.
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
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 cores* 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
* 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.

IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement
Passport Advantage applies
Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at
Yes. The following describes licensee's license entitlement requirements for secondary or standby servers used for high availability and failover configurations in support of primary servers on which Informix Workgroup Edition V12.10 or Informix Enterprise Edition V12.10 is installed. The following entitlement requirements are cumulative and are in addition to the entitlements required for the primary servers.
1.1 Hot Standby
Hot Standby means that Informix Workgroup Edition V12.10 or Informix Enterprise Edition V12.10 is operational on the secondary and standby servers to service user transactions or queries. All Hot Standby servers must be fully licensed under the same charge metric as the primary servers.
1.2 Idle/Warm Standby
Idle/Warm Standby means that Informix Workgroup Edition V12.10 or Informix Enterprise Edition V12.10 is installed but is not operational to service user transactions or query workloads, and is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios, such as having a database in roll-forward pending state to support log shipping; or making a copy of a database and performing a database backup of this copy on another server; or keeping a standby database synchronized using High Availability Data Replication (HDR). There are no additional charges for the Informix Workgroup Edition V12.10 or Informix Enterprise Edition V12.10 placed on Idle/Warm Standby configurations. Informix Express Edition V12.10 must be fully licensed under the same charge metric as the primary server when placed on Idle/Warm Standby configurations.
1.3 Cold Standby
Cold Standby means that the program is installed but the Informix data server is not running. A server is considered a Cold Standby server if licensee must run the command oninit to instantiate the Informix data server. No additional license entitlements are required for Cold Standby servers.
The following programs licensed on the Concurrent Session charge metric are no longer required to be on the same charge metric as the underlying Informix database:
IBM Informix 4GL Compiler Runtime V7.50 IBM Informix 4GL Rapid Development System Runtime V7.50 IBM Informix SQL RDS Runtime V7.50
Software Subscription and Support applies
Yes. 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 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 with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.
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.

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.
