Overview
Bottom rule

Businesses are increasingly interested and focused in extracting value out of their IT spending. Funds are not limitless and data management investments must be targeted and provide value to the business and business owners. Product packaging alone may not afford the flexibility required to meet these objectives, therefore, many organizations want to choose and select from the capabilities and features they require. As a result, IBM® DB2® Encryption Offering, IBM DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering, IBM DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering, and IBM DB2 Performance Management Offering address these needs. Organizations are able to purchase add-on solutions and capabilities, which add specific IBM DB2 capability and targeted business value to their DB2 environments.

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: YE001).

IBM DB2 Encryption Offering

Increasingly, businesses desire or are mandated to encrypt sensitive data to meet organizational or regulatory requirements. The DB2 Encryption Offering assists organizations to meet those requirements by providing, natively within the IBM DB2 database engine itself, encryption capabilities that encrypt data at rest for the entire database, including backup images. DB2's native encryption ensures that sensitive data is encrypted and secured at all times. Deployment of DB2's native encryption is straight forward to enable, transparent to the applications accessing the data, and is applied to backups as well. DB2's native encryption meets the requirements of NIST SP 800-131 compliant cryptographic algorithms and utilizes FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic libraries. This offering is available on IBM DB2 Enterprise Server Edition, IBM DB2 Workgroup Server Edition, and IBM DB2 Express® Server Edition.

IBM DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering

Transactional database systems have become mission-critical aspects of a business' ability to run their daily operations (from point-of-sale transactions to supply chain management). Any outage in these critical systems is disastrous, if not crippling, to the ability of the business to meet client expectations or required service level agreements. Many organizations deploy DB2 pureScale technology to provide continuous availability, however, for some businesses it can be unobtainable to deploy a DB2 pureScale cluster solution with the packaging previously available. With DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering, organizations can now deploy a two member DB2 pureScale environment where one member is available for active processing of the application workloads and a second member that is an idle standby ready to take over during an outage of the active member. In addition, the idle standby member is allowed to be used to perform common administrative functions. The resulting environment gives organizations a cost effective and high speed transactional processing environment with the continuous availability capability delivered through DB2 pureScale. This offering is available for DB2 Enterprise Server Edition and DB2 Workgroup Server Edition.

IBM DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering

The growing pervasiveness of analytics across organizations and the demands of clients requesting analytics from those organizations continue to put demands on traditional database environments as they struggle to deploy and deliver analytics to this wider audience or bring new analytical applications online. DB2's next generation BLU Acceleration technology delivers simple and scalable speed of thought analytics to help organizations meet these demands by delivering a next generation database environment for analytics through its innovative columnar, dynamic in-memory, and actionable compression technologies. BLU Acceleration can deliver performance improvements for analytical applications of 35 times to 73 times over traditional row-organized tables. Not all environments are 100% analytical reporting environments, as many are a mixed or hybrid environment of transactional workloads and analytical reporting. With DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering, organizations can gain the tremendous performance advantages of BLU Acceleration for their analytics by utilizing the shadow table functionality within those mixed hybrid environments while at the same time potentially improving the performance of the transactional workloads. This offering is available for both DB2 Enterprise Server Edition and DB2 Workgroup Server Edition deployments.

IBM DB2 Performance Management Offering

DB2 Performance Management Offering helps businesses monitor, manage, and improve database and application performance. It provides database administrators and other IT staff with the information they need to manage performance proactively and help prevent problems before they impact the business. IBM InfoSphere® Optim™ Performance Manager supports monitoring all aspects of the database. InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager helps you identify emergent problems and receive notifications of degrading performance or emerging resource bottlenecks, diagnose the root cause of issues, and isolate problematic components across applications, networks, and databases. InfoSphere Optim Performance Manager also helps prevent performance problems by defining and using a more predictable database server execution environment, and helps solve performance problems by delivering workloads to IBM InfoSphere Optim Query Workload Tuner (also included in the DB2 Performance Management Offering) to get actionable tuning recommendations for the entire workload. In the past, these performance management tools were primarily available with DB2 Advanced editions, however, now with DB2 Performance Management Offering, organizations can get access to these tools for DB2 Enterprise Edition, DB2 Workgroup Server Edition, and DB2 Express Server Edition environments.

IBM DB2 for Linux™, UNIX™ and Windows™ is a next generation data platform for transactional and analytical applications and operations. It provides continuous availability of data to keep transactional workflows and analytics operating at maximum efficiency. DB2 delivers breakthrough in-memory performance, enabling speed of thought analytics without the constraints of other in-memory solutions. DB2 is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance while lowering costs and improving IT productivity. DB2 Encryption Offering, DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering, DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering, and DB2 Performance Management Offering allow organizations to gain access to DB2's native encryption, DB2 pureScale technology, BLU Acceleration technology (including shadow tables capability), and performance management tooling to help clients meet the demands and requirements being placed upon them.

Statement of general direction
Bottom rule

IBM intends to introduce the Data Server Manager technologies, a dynamic set of capabilities, that are designed to enable database administrators to optimize database performance, detect and solve problems, easily administer instances, databases, and database objects, and manage and track database client/server configurations. These new technologies would become part of the DB2 Performance Management Offering for DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows. Data Server Manager is planned to help customers manage their DB2 databases across their enterprise through tooling with a common integrated console, enhanced simplicity, improved performance and scalability, and simplified workflow with actionable recommendations.

IBM is currently planning that the initial delivery of the Data Server Manager technologies will be available in the first quarter of 2015.

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. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

When a customer orders a license to the program other than via Passport Advantage, 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 number

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 (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) 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.

IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Usage restriction

IBM DB2 Encryption Offering, IBM DB2 Performance Management Offering, IBM DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering, and IBM DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering must be licensed for the same type and number of entitlements as is done for IBM DB2. When DB2 has been acquired as a supporting program under the License Information of another IBM program, sufficient entitlements of each offering must be acquired.

Licensing of DB2 Encryption Offering, DB2 Performance Management Offering, DB2 BLU Acceleration In-Memory Offering, and DB2 Business Application Continuity Offering are not only required for the primary servers where DB2 is installed and licensed. The offerings must also be licensed on all idle/warm standby servers with the same type of entitlements the offerings are licensed on the primary servers, with the number of entitlements appropriate for idle/warm standby servers as described in the License Information of the offerings.

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. 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. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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

Software Subscription and Support 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 the applicable agreements.

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.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support, all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX V5.3, AIX V6.1, and AIX V7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type smitty esa_main, and select Configure Electronic Service Agent. In addition, ESA now includes a powerful web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

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

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24x7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system.

For additional information, please refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/esa/

More accurate reporting: Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, you are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, you can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Support website at

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

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with your IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, you are able to see search results that apply specifically to your systems.
