Description
Bottom rule

Release 2 of IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 enhances the functionality of release 1 by adding support for virtual TS3500 tape libraries with virtual Ultrium 2 or Ultrium 3 tape drives. Additionally, IBM's path failover functionality may be used with virtual TS3500 tape libraries.

Path failover may be used to help enhance availability. This function is designed to provide automatic control path failover to a preconfigured redundant control path in the event of a loss of a host adapter or control path drive, without aborting the current job in progress. Support is provided under various operating systems such as AIX®, Linux®, Solaris, HP-UX, and Windows® for Fibre Channel attachments when the IBM device driver is used.

Data path failover supports virtual Ultrium Tape Drives in the TS3500 virtual tape library using the IBM device driver for AIX, Linux, Windows, Solaris, and HP-UX. Data path failover is designed to provide a failover mechanism in the IBM device driver to enable configuration of multiple redundant paths in a SAN environment. In the event of a path or component failure, the failover mechanism is designed to automatically provide error recovery to retry the current operation using an alternate, preconfigured path without aborting the current job in progress. This provides flexibility in SAN configuration, availability, and management.

ProtecTIER only supports control path failover or data path failover with virtual TS3500 tape libraries.

Three additional software maintenance options have been defined for 2-year, 4-year, and 5-year Software Maintenance registration agreements. These options can be ordered only at initial order and cannot be used to renew or reinstate an existing or expired maintenance agreement. The existing 1-year and 3-year software maintenance options for ProtecTIER EE remain available.

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 -- New orders

Single server configurations

Order one ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 use authorization feature for each ProtecTIER TS7650G (IBM 3958 Model DD1 or DD3) server configured.

Order basic capacity authorizations corresponding to the total terabytes (TB) managed by each ProtecTIER server.

Terebyte capacity ordering is by cumulative tier. Starting with tier 1 (1-12 TB), order the quantity from each successive tier required to reach the total TB managed by the server, filling each tier in succession.

The tier 6 per TB 251+ feature is limited to a quantity of 250. If the total capacity managed by the ProtecTIER server is 500 TB or less, order the authorizations above 250 TB using the tier 6 per TB 251+ feature, to reach the required total. If the total capacity managed by the server is greater than 500 TB but less than 750 TB on a new order, order the per 250 TB 251+ tier 6 feature, with an additional quantity of per TB 251+ features (up to 250), to meet the required total of managed TB authorizations. For total managed capacity at or above 750 TB and below 1000 TB in a new order, order quantity 2 of the per 250 TB, 251+ feature, to reach the required range before using the tier 6 per TB 251+ features to reach the exact total.

Clustered server orders

Order optional cluster authorization (in addition to capacity authorizations) corresponding to the total storage capacity managed by ProtecTIER clustered servers at the site.

Cluster orders require quantity 2 ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2 (per server) use authorization features for each cluster.

Order basic capacity authorizations for the total storage managed by the cluster (commonly configured for both servers in the cluster).

In addition, order cluster capacity authorizations in the same amount as base capacity authorizations.
Note: Cluster support requires cluster feature enablement on the corresponding TS7650G (IBM3958 Model DD1 or DD3) hardware order. Refer to Hardware Announcement 109-087, dated February 10, 2009.

Capacity upgrade orders

Customer representatives should be prepared to furnish the ProtecTIER server serial or system identification unit (SIU) for the server (or servers in a cluster) being upgraded with additional capacity.

Upgrade orders using cumulative tiers are made starting within the tier representing the current capacity authorized (for capacity with current Software Maintenance).

Once pricing tier 6 has been reached (beyond 250 TB), all subsequent upgrade orders are made from tier 6, so long as Software Maintenance at or above that authorization level is current. Single capacity upgrade orders of less than 250 TB total can be made from tier 6 using the per TB 251+ order feature. For single orders from tier 6 of greater than 250 TB, use a combination of the per 250 TB and per terabyte tier 6 order features to reach the required total.

Order Software Maintenance registration corresponding to all product features and quantities ordered, for both new and capacity upgrade orders. Refer to the Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) applies section.

New feature for ProtecTIER Enterprise Edition V2

The TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway solution now supports preloading the ProtecTIER software on the Gateway hardware.
