Description
Bottom rule

The information tidal wave consists largely of unstructured content such as documents, images, and video. According to IDC, 161 exabytes of digital content was created, captured, or replicated in 2006 and the number is expected to multiply by six times to 988 exabytes by 2010. In addition, according to IDC estimates, only 25% of the world's digital information is original. The remaining 75% is replicated or duplicated data.

The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 family of products helps businesses successfully gain better control and efficiently manage the information tidal wave with significant enhancements in facets of data protection, including backup and recovery, archive and retrieve, space management, disaster recovery planning, and centralized management of distributed data, as well as enhancements to management and administration.

Next generation unified recovery management scalability, availability, performance, and administration

Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 helps deliver improved scalability through more concurrent operations, the ability to store more objects and manage more data, and a larger maximum database size. This helps reduce and potentially eliminate the need for additional servers due to size or operational constraints.

Additional key benefits:

  • An approximate doubling of the maximum supported size of the Tivoli Storage Manager database, potentially enabling management of twice as many objects with one Tivoli Storage Manager server as compared to previous versions. Even with this increased maximum size of the Tivoli Storage Manager database, other operational considerations such as expiration, backup windows for clients, database backup, or other server operations may limit how large the server should be in a given customer environment.
  • A nine times increase in the maximum size of the recovery log, potentially increasing the capacity to handle concurrent operations.
  • The ability to scale across multiprocessor systems is enhanced.
  • Availability can be improved through online, automated reorganization of the object database and real-time database integrity validation. This virtually eliminates the need to take the Tivoli Storage Manager server offline for repair actions.
  • No specialized database administration skills are required. Database administration is accomplished through the Tivoli Storage Manager user interface (UI) and through the exploitation of autonomic computing concepts such as a self-tuning database buffer pool and automatic management of database and recovery log storage.

Increased visibility into, and control of, the data protection environment

Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 delivers dramatically enhanced features for out-of-the-box operational monitoring and historical reporting. A new customizable end-user "dashboard" delivers graphical representation and monitoring of trends and current status. This capability scales to help manage many Tivoli Storage Manager servers while it is still lightweight enough to be used for only one server. Storage administrators can generate reports in multiple formats such as HTML, Adobe® portable document format (PDF), and comma-separated values (CSV). In addition, since it is based on open source Eclipse Business Intelligence Reporting Tools (BIRT), administrators can define their own customized reports. Operational monitoring and historical reporting are available in Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 and Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition V6.1 at no additional cost. Built on Tivoli Common Reporting, Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 can integrate with other IBM Tivoli products to deliver a consolidated view into not only the data protection environment but the broader IT environment.

Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center enhancements:

  • A new lighter weight version of Integrated Solutions Console (ISC) infrastructure is incorporated into Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1, significantly reducing the overall footprint of the Administration Center. For example, the disk footprint has been reduced by thirty percent from previous versions.
  • Fast installation allows a typical installation to be done in approximately half the time required by previous versions.
  • Performance is addressed by loads typically requiring less time for initial page and page switches. Processing of large queries is enhanced and overall response time may be improved.
  • The ability to display the backup sets, client nodes, and client node groups can now be done from one portlet. You can view all of the client nodes, view them by server, or search for a node from the three available client node tabs.
  • The configuration of server actions is consolidated in a single central location, the new Manage Server table.

Enhanced data reduction capabilities, enabling significantly more original data to be stored on disk through built-in data deduplication

Tivoli Storage Manager currently provides significant data reduction through progressive incremental backup, client compression, and subfile backup. In addition, data reduction can be achieved through use of storage devices that can support compression and data deduplication. Data deduplication is defined as the elimination of redundant files and subfiles. These subfiles may also be referred to as chunks, blocks, or extents. Only one instance is stored for each common chunk. Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 extends its current data-reduction capabilities by adding a new, built-in data deduplication capability in Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition V6.1 for sequential-access disk (FILE) storage pools. The additional data reduction achieved by Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition V6.1 data deduplication will depend on factors which determine the degree of data redundancy, including the type of data, change rate, and the number of clients.

Key benefits of Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition V6.1 data deduplication:

  • Requires no updates to client-side software or API applications because it is implemented on the Tivoli Storage Manager server
  • Requires no dependency on specific hardware because it is an integrated component of Tivoli Storage Manager
  • Helps minimize impact to backup windows through post-ingestion (out-of-band) deduplication processing on the Tivoli Storage Manager server
  • Applies to all types of stored data, including hierarchical storage management (HSM), Tivoli Storage Manager data protection applications, and Tivoli Storage Manager API applications
  • Supports deduplication of data previously stored on the Tivoli Storage Manager server (legacy data)
  • Helps reduce redundancy for:
    • Identical objects from same or different client nodes (even if names are different)
    • Common data chunks (subfiles, extents) in objects from the same or different nodes
  • Delivers transparent client access to deduplicated objects

Enhancements to help you achieve increasingly demanding recovery point objectives, recovery time objective, and business continuity requirements

Enhancements:

  • More granular support for Microsoft® Windows® Exchange Mail Servers
    • Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail V6.1 now supports the restoration of a user's mailbox or items from within a mailbox that may have been accidentally deleted, and restoration of the mailbox as it existed at a previous point in time. Examples of what can be recovered are an entire inbox, deleted items, e-mail drafts, journal, calendar, notes, tasks, and user folders.
    • Search filters are provided for ease of locating individual items based on sender name, subject text, attachment name, folder name, message delivery date, and time or text strings within the message body.
    • Support for Microsoft Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007.
    • Leverage of the Microsoft Exchange Recovery Storage Group and Microsoft standard programming interfaces.
  • More granular support for Microsoft Windows Active Directory environments with the following key functions:
    • Support for individual object recovery from System State backups of user and group objects for Windows Server 2008 Active Directory environments. An example is the restoration of an individual or group that may have been deleted from the Active Directory.
    • Support for un-deletion (reanimation) of objects from the Active Directory's tombstone to assist in manual recovery of individual objects for Windows 2003 and Windows Server 2008 environments.
    • Recovery and reanimation is accomplished without having to shut down or restart the Active Directory server.
    • Integration into the existing Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive Client restore tree view.

    In addition, no changes are required to the backup approach used for Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory.

  • A potential 100% throughput improvement (per Tivoli Storage Manager server) in file system incremental backup performance from multiple clients can dramatically shorten the backup window. This increased throughput allows you to either shorten your backup windows or increase the workload managed within the current backup window. These throughput improvements are available on Microsoft Windows and AIX® platforms only.
  • Enhancements designed to improve performance with IBM System Storage™ N series and NetApp Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that deliver:
    • Greater integration with IBM N series and NetApp. The speed at which Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 can back up these very large NAS devices can be improved, while still providing file level recovery. To achieve this, Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 leverages a NetApp Snapshot differencing interface for IBM N series and NetApp NAS file systems to help identify new, changed, and deleted files, helping eliminate the need for Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 to scan the NAS file system prior to an incremental backup.
    • Potential improved speed at which a full image of the IBM N series and NetApp file systems can be backed up, helping provide better business continuity and disaster recovery protection. This is accomplished through integration with the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) and the NetApp SnapMirror to Tape function to move a disaster recovery image, copied from the NAS device, to storage managed by Tivoli Storage Manager. The SnapMirror to Tape function is not intended as a replacement for conventional backup operations, but does allow disaster recovery protection for large file systems for which conventional backup methods are impractical.
  • Enhanced business continuity and disaster recovery support for VMware Consolidated Backup environments

    Building on the VMware Consolidated Backup enhancements delivered in previous releases of Tivoli Storage Manager, Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 now provides a full image backup of virtual machines for enhanced business continuity and disaster recovery.

  • Enhanced Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition disaster recovery manager support for active-data pools

    To restore your client systems more quickly and efficiently, you can now use active-data pools in your recovery plans and procedures. Active-data pools are storage pools that contain only active versions of client backup data. Similar to the current support for copy storage pool volumes, disaster recovery manager lets you do the following for active-data pool volumes:

    • Specify the names of active-data pool volumes to be managed by disaster recovery manager
    • Recycle on-site and off-site active-data pool volumes according to server policies and processes
    • Include active-data pool volumes in the scripts, macros, and documentation that are part of the recovery plan file
    • Track and manage active-data pool media as required by your operations
  • Support for the IBM General Purpose File System (GPFS) for storage pool usage and LAN-free access

    This allows for storage agents and servers to access FILE devclass storage from multiple physical systems on the LAN. The use of GPFS allows backup traffic to be taken off of the LAN and moved to a SAN environment. This helps reduce server utilization and enables more concurrent operations by distributing them across multiple storage agents. Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks V6.1 is required to take advantage of this capability.

Enhancements in V6.1 for selected Tivoli Storage Manager products

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Copy Services V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager for Copy Services can help protect your mission-critical data that requires 24 x 7 availability. It offers ready-to-use, application consistent, product-based solutions designed to implement high-efficiency backup and restore processes for business-critical applications, and help to eliminate backup-related performance impact on the production host. By integrating hardware and software-based snapshot capabilities with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and its data protection components for Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SQL, you can help manage your snapshot backup operations and leverage the performance, scheduling, and media management functions of Tivoli Storage Manager to help ensure that your application servers are operational 24 hours a day.

Tivoli Storage Manager for Copy Services provides the integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VSS providers for snapshots.

In today's business world, application servers often are operational 24 hours a day. The data on the application servers should be well protected. With the rapid increase in the amount of data on these servers, and the shrinking backup windows, traditional backup and restore methods may be reaching their limits in meeting your challenging requirements. Snapshot operations can help minimize the impact caused by backups. Since a snapshot operation typically takes much less time than the time for a tape backup, the window during which the application must be aware of a backup can be reduced. The snapshots can be retained as backups on local disk, sent to Tivoli Storage Manager server storage pools, or both.

New in Tivoli Storage Manager for Copy Services:

  • Updates to take advantage of the enhancements in Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail V6.1.
  • The hardware integration module, previously shipped with Tivoli Storage Manager, has been removed. It is now included with the Tivoli Storage Manager Backup-Archive client.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail helps protect Lotus® Domino® and Microsoft Exchange data within the Tivoli Storage Manager storage hierarchy. It supports online (hot) backup and exploits the backup-certified interfaces provided by Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange.

As previously mentioned, Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail V6.1 now provides more granular support for Microsoft Windows Exchange Mail Servers.

IBM System Storage Archive Manager V6.1

IBM System Storage Archive Manager provides data retention capabilities that help address requirements for data retention and disposition. IBM System Storage Archive Manager's existing policy-based data management capabilities are provided through an open application programming interface (API). IBM System Storage Archive Manager is designed to prevent the modification of data under its control and to prevent the deletion of that data by unauthorized agents (individual or program) prior to the expiration of the retention period. This helps ensure that neither individuals nor programs can maliciously or accidentally delete data under IBM System Storage Archive Manager control.

IBM System Storage Archive Manager V6.1, based on IBM Tivoli Storage Manager V5.6.1, incorporates many of the same enhancements and new features described previously, such as:

  • Built-in data deduplication to help reduce storage requirements by eliminating redundant data
  • New near real-time operational monitoring and historical reporting that can deliver increased visibility into, and control of, the data protection environment through a customizable monitoring dashboard, and predefined and user-defined reporting capabilities
  • Integrated IBM enterprise-class DB2 database technology to help manage more data through delivery of dramatic advancements in data protection scalability, performance, and availability
  • A broad set of additional enhancements to help achieve greater information availability objectives and business continuity requirements

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning V6.1 provides automated data protection, helps reduce the impact of data backups and restores on the SAP database server, and helps reduce the administrator workload necessary to meet data protection and storage management requirements. It integrates with the database-specific utilities of IBM DB2 UDB (db2 admin) and Oracle (RMAN), and with the SAP BR*Tools.

Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning is specifically optimized to help protect your vital SAP data. An administration assistant helps maximize administrator productivity by helping to simplify administration, configuration, and monitoring of Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning in production environments. This powerful solution helps enable administrators to effectively, consistently, and reliably manage backup and recovery of multiple SAP systems with large volumes of data.

As the intelligent interface to SAP databases, Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning V6.1 supports heterogeneous environments with large-volume data backups, data recovery, data cloning, and disaster recovery of multiple SAP database servers.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks works with servers and client computers to make data transfers over a Storage Area Network (SAN). It allows SAN-connected Tivoli Storage Manager servers and Tivoli Storage Manager client computers to make maximum use of their direct network connection to storage. Key benefits of Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Network:

  • Helps reduce the impact of data protection on the LAN and can reduce CPU utilization on both client and server
  • Delivers LAN-free backup and restore that helps remove data transfer from the LAN, and can provide high-performance backup and restore that helps minimize network traffic and improve application performance and transaction response times on the Tivoli Storage Manager server
  • Supports a SAN-connected tape library, where multiple servers can share a tape library and tape drives on a SAN

Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks is updated to exploit the enhancements in Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1. Both the Storage Agent and the SANergy® components have been updated.

IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) Multiplatform

GPFS Multiplatform V3.2.1 is a high-performance shared-disk file management solution that provides fast, reliable access from nodes in a cluster environment. Parallel and serial applications can readily access shared files using standard UNIX® file system interfaces, and the same file can be accessed concurrently from multiple nodes. GPFS is designed to provide high availability through logging and replication, and can be configured for failover from both disk and server malfunctions. GPFS scalability and performance are designed to meet the needs of data intensive applications such as engineering design, digital media, data mining, relational databases, financial analytical, seismic data processing, scientific research and scalable file serving.

GPFS Multiplatform runs on the IBM System Cluster 1350™ as well as Linux® clusters based on selected IBM x86 System x rack-optimized servers, select IBM select IBM BladeCenter servers, or select IBM for AMD processor-based servers.

Additionally, GPFS Multiplatform V3.2.1 is supported on nodes running Windows Server 2003 R2 on 64-bit architectures (AMD x64/EM64T) in an existing GPFS V3.2.1 cluster of AIX or Linux (32 bit or 64 bit) where all nodes are at service level 3.2.1-5 or later.

GPFS Multiplatform is ideal for high-performance parallel file transfer and parallel I/O to single or multiple files. GPFS delivers multicluster support, scalability and performance, support for extremely large files, failure recovery, and ease of administration.

GPFS provides fast, reliable data access from all nodes in a homogenous or heterogenous cluster of servers running either the AIX, Linux, or Windows operating system. GPFS allows applications simultaneous access to a set of files (even a single file) from any node that has the GPFS file system mounted while providing a high level of control over all file system operations. Additionally, GPFS provides extreme scaling across numerous metrics, including I/O performance, file or file system size, numbers of files, number of nodes, and execution of complex ILM policies. All of these features together offer different value to different classes of customer needs, such as:

  • A multicluster file system for parallel processing on compute clusters, featuring extreme scalability and throughput optimized for streaming workloads such as those common in Web 2.0, digital media, scientific, and engineering applications.
  • An information lifecycle management file system enabling multiple tiers of storage, including tape, with complex policy-driven file placement, migration, archival, and deletion. The unique GPFS policy engine enables file migration scalable to billions of files and multiple petabytes of data.
  • A scalable, shared storage file system for storage consolidation and virtualization. This includes Clustered NFS support, and a scalable shared namespace, enabling horizontally scalable file serving. Additionally, GPFS includes many data/SAN management features, including wide striping and storage hardware-agnostic snapshots/mirroring.
  • A high availability file system for any business application or database which may benefit from very rapid failover of a consistent application data environment.
  • A distributed file system, providing a global, cross-platform coherent namespace across an enterprise for around-the-world, around-the-clock operations.

Refer to the GPFS FAQ found in the Cluster Library Web site at

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clresctr/vxrx/index.jsp

GPFS pricing examples

GPFS Multiplatform offers two types of GPFS licenses, a server license and a client license. For each node in a GPFS cluster (refer to Permitted use of GPFS Server and GPFS Client, below, for the definitions), the customer obtains the appropriate number of server or client licenses that correspond to the way GPFS is used on that node.

During GPFS cluster configuration, you will be prompted to identify whether a particular node is a GPFS Server or a GPFS Client. If a GPFS Client is chosen, function that requires a GPFS Server license will be disabled on this node. Since the node that acts as the GPFS cluster configuration server requires a GPFS Server designation, at least one node in your GPFS cluster requires one or more GPFS Server licenses.

During the ordering process, the number of GPFS Server and GPFS Client licenses will need to be identified.

Permitted Use of GPFS Server and GPFS Client:

  • A node is defined as an individual operating system image that may appear on a single computer within a cluster, on a system within a cluster, or on a partition.
  • You may use the GPFS Server in order to perform the following GPFS functions:
Mounting GPFS file systems and accessing data from operating system block devices
Performing GPFS management functions such as cluster configuration manager, quorum node, manager node, and Network Shared Disk (NSD) server
Sharing data through any application, service protocol or method such as Network File System (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), or Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
  • You may use GPFS Client in order to perform the following functions:
Mounting GPFS file systems and accessing data from operating system block devices and NSD servers
exchanging data between nodes that locally mount the same GPFS file syste

Note: The GPFS Client may not be used for nodes to share GPFS data through any application, service, protocol or method, such as NFS, CIFS, FTP, or HTTP. For this use, entitlement to GPFS Server would be required.

Ordering example

  • Common x86 HPC setup, no virtualization
    4 x3655 machines (8 cores each), 32 x3455 machines (4 cores each). Each physical machine is a GPFS node (no virtualization).
    4 x3655 nodes are configured as NSD servers and quorum nodes: 4 nodes with 8 cores each = 32 Xeon® cores*50 PVUs = 160 server licenses.
    32 x3455 nodes are configured as NSD clients: 32 nodes with 4 cores each = 128 Xeon cores*50 PVUs = 640 client licenses.

Companion products

Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 customers may want to consider purchasing IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is complementary with Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1. The progressive incremental backup methodology of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is consistent with Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1's methodology and value proposition of helping you minimize the amount of data requiring backup by copying changed data only. In addition, if you desire to add tape to your Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack environment, you can effectively back up your Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack solution directly to Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1. Then, Tivoli Storage Manager V6.1 will take over tiered storage management of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack data to help reduce cost and assimilate backup processing of enterprise data.

Many Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack customers have already implemented this exact scenario of supplementing their Tivoli Storage Manager environment in the data center with a Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack solution in remote branch offices, or a Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback solution for specific mission-critical servers where continuous data protection is desired.

Tivoli Storage Manager customers may consider purchasing IBM Tivoli Continuous Data Protection (CDP) for Files. Tivoli CDP for Files is a real-time, continuous data protection solution specifically designed for laptops and desktops. Tivoli Storage Manager can be used with Tivoli CDP for files to provide off-machine protection when a user is connected, so real-time backups still occur. Tivoli Storage Manager provides off-site copies of backup data for vaulting, auditable disaster recovery plan, and tape and media management.

Customers who have a SAN environment may consider purchasing IBM Total Storage Productivity Center in addition to Tivoli Storage Manager. The customer can benefit from the ability to more fully manage their storage environment, including backup and recovery, management of disk performance, management of the physical network of the SAN, logical connections between the devices, and capacity management of file systems and databases. Additionally, IBM Total Storage Productivity Center for Data complements Tivoli Storage Manager. The customer who leverages these products will benefit from the ability to extend policies and file reports to directly initiate a Tivoli Storage Manager's backup or archive when certain threshold conditions are met, or in the case of file reports, if conditions deem it necessary.

The following products could be purchased with the System x product offerings:

  • IBM System x servers
  • IBM BladeCenter servers
  • IBM BladeCenter Chassis
  • IBM TotalStorage® DS4000™ Series

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing

IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach -- whereby price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed. For example, all servers monitored with IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other IBM Tivoli products may manage clients, client devices, agents, network nodes, users, or other items, and are licensed and priced accordingly.

Unlike typical systems management licensing models that require entitlements of specific software components to specific systems, the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model provides the customer flexibility to deploy its IBM Tivoli software products within its environment in a manner that can address and respond to the customer's evolving architecture. That is, as the architecture of a customer's environment changes, the customer's implementation of IBM Tivoli software can be altered as needed without affecting the customer's license requirements (as long as the customer does not exceed its entitlements to the software).

Under Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, licensing and pricing of server-oriented applications are determined based upon the server's use in the customer's environment. Typically, such applications are licensed and priced in a manner that corresponds to each installed and activated processor of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

For servers with physical or logical (sometimes called virtual) partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster.

Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC/UNIX and Microsoft Windows/Intel technologies, in order to simplify the customers licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-System z server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z® and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions

Client device or client

A client device is a computer system that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Engine

An engine is also referred to as a central processor (CP) or processor. Engines for traditional workloads are called General Purpose CPs. Engines for Linux workloads are called Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines or Linux-only engines. Engines for Coupling Facility workloads are called Integrated Coupling Facility (ICF) engines.

IBM Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL)

This optional facility enables additional processing capacity exclusively for Linux workload, with no effect on the model designation of a System z or S/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM Integrated Facility for Linux will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390®, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems/applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications which run on the IFL. The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the S/390 traditional operating systems (OS/390, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, are supported by the IBM S/390 Integrated Facility for Linux.

Managed processor (charging under full capacity in the managed environment)

Charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require PoE are defined in the License Information's program unique terms.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. The program may not runon some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required for the program's valuation method.
  4. In the System z Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  5. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors.
  6. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blades with which the program is affiliated.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Processor (per processor charging under full capacity)

In full capacity charging, PoE must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the program or a component of the program is run.

Notes:

  1. IBM defines a physical processor in a computer as a functional unit that interprets and executes instructions. A physical processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore technology, IBM considers each core to be a physical processor. For example, in a dual-core chip, there are two physical processors residing on the single silicon chip.
  3. In System z Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  4. Threading, a technique that makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server and charging is based upon the total number of processors on the blade on which the program is run.
  6. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are inactive, four processors are active for the customer.
  7. Not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices over a network. A PoE must be obtained for each server on which the program or a component of the program is run or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Terabytes

One terabyte of managed storage = 2 raised to the power of 40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes

IBM Tivoli Storage HSM for Windows terabyte (TB) capacity - Includes primary HSM disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized HSM removable media storage pool. Storage pools are configured on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server.

IBM System Storage Archive Manager TB capacity - Includes primary disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized primary removable media storage used by the IBM System Storage Archive Manager server.

Capacity notes

  • Capacity does not include:
    • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk.
    • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media.
    • Space used on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server for any purpose other than the primary storage of space-managed data.
    • Disk on the host being space managed.
  • A virtual tape library (VTL) is considered a removable media device, so capacity is based on utilization.
  • The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 TB.
  • Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of TB.
  • Additional capacity must be added in increments of 1 TB

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm, and hot. In the cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire another license or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.

As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes.

Cold - A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Warm - A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Hot - A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.

Doing work, includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.

In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource, and so on), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

Value Units

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurements are processor cores and MSU's. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as Servers, users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a proof of entitlement (PoE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program. Whenever the designated measurement is a processor core, not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Tivoli Storage Manager pricing examples (processor and processor Value Unit based)

The following examples are provided to illustrate the customer's licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit-based. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor will depend on the processor type. For more information refer to the Value Unit definition in the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Terminology Definitions. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required per processor, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

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

Notes:

  • License entitlements for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are required for all managed servers including the managing server. Licensing is Processor Value Unit based
  • License entitlements for client devices (laptops, desktops, technical workstations) are required for all client devices being managed. Entitlement is per client device. Client devices require either the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager client device license or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition client device license.
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager supports tape libraries (including virtual tape libraries) up to and including four drives or 48 slots. A PoE for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required to use any of the following support: disaster recovery manager, Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP), support of tape libraries (including virtual tape libraries) with more than four drives or more than 48 slots, or Storage Pool Data Deduplication.
  • Client device entitlements (notebooks, desktops, technical workstations) for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are interchangeable.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server cannot be used to manage IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition components or clients.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition server cannot be used to manage IBM Tivoli Storage Manager components or clients.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server can communicate with and send data to an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition server.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition server can communicate with, and send data to, an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server.
  • All NAS devices, that are being backed up, must be licensed.
  • If the NAS device is backed up using NDMP, entitlement for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required.
  • If the NAS device is backed up using Common Internet File System (CIFS) or Network File System (NFS), entitlement for either IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager is required, depending on the entitlement required for your environment.
  • An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks license is required for each IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server that is sharing a library where an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager acts as the library manager. A license is required for each library client and library manager. An IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks license is required for each system that performs LAN-free operations.

The following customer network (referred to as the core environment) applies to all of the examples to enable the reader to see where products tend to manage something less than the entire environment. The customer's overall core environment includes:

Distributed servers

  • 20 uniprocessors
  • 65 2-way servers
  • 12 4-way servers
  • One 8-way server
  • One 12-way server with two virtual or logical partitions
  • One 14-way server
  • One 16-way Sun Ultra server with two 8-way physical partitions (only one of which is managed by IBM Tivoli applications)
  • One 24-way server
  • One z800 server with two uniprocessor IFLs running Linux (for example, Linux on System z)

    Note: Linux on System z offerings may not be available for all IBM Tivoli products. This licensing example assumes such availability. Linux on System z offerings have distinctly orderable part numbers in Passport Advantage and should be used when ordering entitlements for IFLs running Linux.

    If pricing products without a Linux on System z offering, you should exclude the z800 server entitlement requirement indicated below

The customer wants to manage the applicable distributed server environment, which requires Value Unit entitlements associated with the following number of processors:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
|        Systems managed          |  Quantity in  |   Processors   |

Notes:

  • One of the 4-way servers above is the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server and therefore does not require entitlement to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks.
  • The customer is allowed to use IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks in an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager environment without the need to upgrade to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition. Licensing for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks is in addition to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.
  • LAN-free to disk support is available for specific IBM Tivoli Storage Manager systems, which are listed on the product Web pages. The customer's use of Tivoli SANergy components, included with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks, is limited to use of LAN-free backup and restore to disk, in conjunction with its licensed use of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks. The Tivoli SANergy components included with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks may not be used for any other purpose.

Migration examples

Customers who purchased IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention were charged a flat per-processor fee. That original purchase was not bound to any amount of capacity. If the customer wants to add an an additional processor to their existing IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention server, they will need to do so under the new pricing model. If the customer wants to add a new IBM System Storage Archive Manager server, this would be done as a new purchase following the examples above and no migration would be necessary.

For migration purposes, customers will be entitled to 16 TB of IBM System Storage Archive Manager for each processor they purchased of Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention.

Migration example 1

A customer originally purchased one processor of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention. The amount of capacity on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention server is 12 TB. As part of the migration, the customer would be granted the entitlement to manage 16 TB of IBM System Storage Archive Manager. In this example, the customer could manage an additional 4 TB without purchasing any additional entitlements.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

|                   |16 TB of usable disk      |additional          |
|                   |capacity (1:16 conversion |entitlements        |

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Migration example 2

A customer originally purchased one processor of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention. The amount of capacity on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention server is 22 TB. As part of the migration, the customer would be granted the entitlement to manage 16 TB of IBM System Storage Archive Manager. Thus, the customer would need to purchase entitlement for an additional 6 TB of IBM System Storage Archive Manager.

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates, 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.

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.
