Overview
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 software augments its FSI interface by functioning as an NFS backup target. ProtecTIER supports FSI mount points for NFS and common information file system (CIFS) to be defined on the same ProtecTIER system. ProtecTIER V3.3 supports replication between a maximum of eight ProtecTIER FSI systems. Any one ProtecTIER FSI system is limited to a maximum of three target systems within the replication grid per replication policy.

ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 supports additional repository capacities available on TS7620 systems using the TS7620 Storage Expansion Drawer Model EXP. When one Model EXP is attached to the TS7620 base Model SM2, ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 will support a repository size of approximately 23 TB. When two Model EXP are attached to the TS7620 base Model SM2, ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 will support a repository size of approximately 35 TB. For customers achieving data deduplication ratios of 25 to 1, a 35 TB repository can contain up to 875 TB of backup data.

ProtecTIER V3.3 also includes a fully automated, wizard-based ProtecTIER server code upgrade facility using the ProtecTIER Manager GUI designed to improve the code upgrade user experience. With the release of V3.3, software maintenance renewals for ProtecTIER can be automated through a services contract. Feature 9000 should be included on the software maintenance registration Product ID (PID) to indicate the desire to participate in this auto renewal process.

ProtecTIER V3.3 continues support for the Symantec NetBackup OpenStorage (OST) API announced with ProtecTIER V2.5, and for the virtual tape library (VTL) interface that has been the foundation of the ProtecTIER offerings. Supported replication grid configurations for ProtecTIER OST and ProtecTIER VTL systems are unchanged with ProtecTIER V3.3.

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 is the follow-on to ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.2.

Description
Bottom rule

ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 introduces FSI NFS support for network attached storage (NAS) backup environments. The ProtecTIER FSI interface is intended to be used for backup and restore of data sets using a backup application. ProtecTIER V3.3 file system interface supports CIFS and NFS attachments on the same system. Use of the ProtecTIER FSI interface for primary storage is not supported at this time. The ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 FSI support requires TS7620 Appliance Express Model SM2.

ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 systems may be configured as a VTL system, an OST interface system, or an FSI system. At this time, a ProtecTIER system may only be configured as one of these types of systems. You may not configure two or three of these system types on a single ProtecTIER system. ProtecTIER Entry Edition support for functionality related to the VTL interface and the OST interface is unchanged with V3.3.

ProtecTIER Replication for FSI systems is supported between up to eight ProtecTIER FSI systems. However, any single replication policy for a ProtecTIER FSI system may only replicate to a maximum of three other ProtecTIER FSI systems within the replication topology.

ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 FSI systems support attachment to a maximum of sixteen file backup file systems, and a maximum of 64 CIFS Shares and NFS exports.

ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 supports four different capacity points:

These capacity points are supported for each system interface type, VTL, OST, and FSI, and for the optional features for TS7620 Replication. Trade-ups are supported from TS7620 Capacity 1 to TS7620 Capacity 2, from TS7620 Capacity 2 to TS7620 Capacity 3, and from TS7620 Capacity 3 to TS7620 Capacity 4. The system interface type may not be changed during a trade-up.

The ProtecTIER Entry Edition capacity points for the TS7610 Appliance Express model SM1 are unchanged from V3.2.

Auto renewal registration of software maintenance

Software maintenance renewals in the AAS ordering system for ProtecTIER Entry Edition 5639-PTC software are available through an IBM team who can manage the renewals under a services contract, and provide customers with a common anniversary date for software maintenance renewals, helping keep customers current on software maintenance. Selecting feature code 9000 with the software maintenance registration ordered with 5639-PTC indicates interest in the auto renewal of software maintenance, and engages the services team to contact the customer and separately contract the service if the customer so desires. Feature number 9000 is available on the following IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Entry Edition base software maintenance registration product IDs:


Note: Auto renewal services are not available in all countries or for all initial software maintenance contract terms. Refer to the services announcement found in the Reference information section for more details.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
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.

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.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) 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.

License Information form number

L-KAVZ-8EJS6D

The program's license information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

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

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Other terms
Volume orders (IVO)

Yes. Contact your IBM representative.

Passport Advantage applies

No

Usage restriction

Yes

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Entry Edition V3.3 software (5639-PTC) is licensed on a per storage device basis.

For additional information, refer to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) 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. Extending coverage for a total of two, three, four, or five years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) 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 (Software Maintenance) 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.

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.
