Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples
Bottom rule

Licensing metric definition

Tiered terabytes (1-12), (13-32), (33-64), (65-100), (101-250), (251+)

Terabyte (1-12), terabyte (13-32), terabyte (33-64), terabyte (65-100), terabyte (101-250), and terabyte (251+) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number 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.

These metrics apply to the IBM Information Archive software license and the IBM Information Archive Index and Search feature software license.

Pricing example

Entitlement for IBM Information Archive V2.1 is on a per terabyte (TB) basis. The entitlement is based on the total storage managed by IBM Information Archive.

The following example is provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

The customer has IBM Information Archive with a total of 72 TB of storage managed as follows:

  • One file archive collection, also known as Network Attached Storage (NAS) collection, with 35 TB of storage
  • One System Storage® Archive Manager (SSAM) collection with 37 TB of storage

The customer will require the following entitlements for the IBM Information Archive base license.

 
TB tiers          Number of TB entitlements required 

  1-12                          12

Total entitlements                                     
required                        72                   

In addition, the customer wants to use the IBM Information Archive Index and Search feature, which supports the file archive collection only. Entitlement for the Index and Search feature is on a per TB basis. The TB entitlement for the one file archive collection, also known as Network Attached Storage (NAS) collection, is 35 TB of storage.

To enable the Index and Search feature for the file archive collection, the customer will require the following entitlements for the Index and Search feature.

Basic license

Order handling

IBM Information Archive V2.1 (5608-W01) will be ordered through existing channels using the existing configurator and ordering tools. However, the fulfillment processes have been modified to improve customer records management associated with Software Subscription and Support (SW S&S), often referred to as Software Maintenance. SW S&S will be entitled through Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express.

5608-W01, when selected during the configuration process with each hardware system, will be enabled for the system unit for which the product was ordered. Optionally, software and license only configurations can be created for 5608-W01 based on existing supported hardware system units in your business environment.

After receipt of an order, you will be required to register for, and accept, Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express terms and conditions.

Passport Advantage allows greater flexibility to help you manage software licenses and Subscription and Support renewals. You can now have a common anniversary date for Subscription and Support renewals. The anniversary date, established at the order ship date for the initial product acquisition, will remain unchanged while your Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express agreement remains in effect.

Your PoE for IBM Information Archive V2.1 is a copy of a paid sales receipt from IBM or its authorized reseller from whom you acquired the program, provided that it states the license charge unit (the characteristics of intended use of the program; for example, number of TB) and quantity acquired.

IBM Information Archive V2.1 is available in English only. It is preloaded on the IBM Information Archive hardware system. IBM Information Archive V2.1 is not available via electronic download and media is not separately orderable.

However, the IBM Information Archive V2.1 Index and Search feature is available preloaded on the IBM Information Archive hardware system (2231-IA3) and also via electronic download.

To order a basic license, specify the program number and the applicable cumulative tier one-time charge feature numbers for the quantity desired (maximum quantity of 250).

The quantity to be specified for the feature numbers in the following tables is per terabyte.

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 IBM International Passport Advantage Express Agreement.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and 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).

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).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

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.

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.
