Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified V1.3.0 delivers file storage to its powerful, easy-to-use midrange disk system. Storwize V7000 Unified is a block and file storage system with a tightly integrated management console. The Unified console is designed to simplify storage administration with a single user interface and common command-line interface (CLI). Customers can benefit from greater flexibility for provisioning of storage resources with its support of NFS, CIFS, FTP, HTTPS, SCP file protocols, and greater over all capacity utilization with the existing block functions of the Storwize V7000. Storwize V7000 Unified provides file replication and file-level snapshots for business continuity and disaster recovery. Customers are able to deploy a broader set of applications from within a single storage system, especially in shared storage environments.

The Storwize V7000 Unified system includes the local capabilities of IBM Active Cloud Engine, which is designed to deliver policy-based management of files to reduce costs through use of tiered storage, and improve data governance. For example, Active Cloud Engine policies can be used to move less frequently used data to lower-cost tiers of storage, including tape in an IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager system. Active Cloud Engine policies can also be used to automatically delete unwanted or expired data.

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified integration with McAfee and Symantec Antivirus is designed to provide the ability to isolate or delete compromised files, and leverage the most commonly deployed ISV antivirus applications.

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition V4.2.2 is now available with a new way to license by the number of enclosures managed, known as Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select. IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center is a feature-rich storage management software suite, and the integrated suite provides detailed monitoring, reporting, and management within a single console. The V4.2.2 suite of distributed products delivers improved time-to-value with storage tiering reporting in Tivoli Common Reporting/Cognos, and the support for Storwize V7000 Unified system.

Description
Bottom rule

Storwize V7000 Unified V1.3.0 is a block and file storage system with a tightly integrated management console. The Unified console simplifies storage administration with a single user interface and common command-line interface (CLI). Customers benefit from greater flexibility for provisioning of storage resources with its support of NFS, CIFS, FTP, HTTPS, SCP file protocols, and greater overall capacity utilization with the existing block functions of the Storwize V7000. Storwize V7000 Unified provides file replication and file level snapshots for business continuity and disaster recovery. Customers are able to deploy a broader set of applications from within a single storage system, especially in shared storage environments.

Many users have deployed Storage-Area Network (SAN) attached storage for their applications requiring the highest levels of performance while separately deploying Network-Attached Storage (NAS) for its ease of use and lower cost networking. This divided approach adds complexity by introducing multiple management points and also creates islands of storage that reduce efficiency. IBM Storwize V7000 Unified provides the ability to combine both SAN and NAS storage into a single system. By consolidating storage systems, multiple management points can be eliminated and storage capacity can be shared across both types of access, helping to improve overall storage utilization. Storwize V7000 Unified also presents a single, easy-to-use management interface that supports both SAN and NAS, helping to further simplify administration.

The File Module software includes an installed Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) client that supports TSM environments, including Hierarchical Storage Management and Information Lifecycle Management implementations. The TSM client software is preinstalled to facilitate integration with a TSM environment, but requires a separate license to authorize use.

Active Cloud engine

Storwize V7000 Unified builds on the high-performance design of the Storwize V7000 system and integrates proven IBM NAS software capabilities to deliver new levels of efficiency. The system includes IBM Active Cloud Engine, which is designed to deliver policy-based management of files to reduce costs through use of tiered storage, and improve data governance. For example, Active Cloud Engine policies can be used to move less frequently used data to lower cost tiers of storage, including tape in an IBM Tivoli Storage Manager system. Active Cloud Engine policies can also be used to automatically delete unwanted or expired data.

Antivirus

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified integration with McAfee and Symantec Antivirus is designed to provide the ability to isolate or delete compromised files, and leverage the most commonly deployed ISV antivirus applications.

File level snapshots

For NAS data, Storwize V7000 Unified offers data protection through space-efficient file system and fileset level snapshots (up to 256 per file system). Snapshots of a fileset provide a way to partition the namespace into smaller, more manageable units. File snapshots protect against accidental deletion or modification of files and that enable you to restore at the file level. The system also provides asynchronous replication for disaster recovery and business continuity. In addition, asynchronous replication offers encrypted file replication over extended distances between two sites. This function is integrated with IBM Active Cloud Engine, which can provide a high-speed scan of the source file system to determine files and directories that have been created, modified or deleted. The replication is performed by an "rsync" tool created by IBM which can move only the changed portions of files to a destination, offering network savings.

IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Software 5639-VF1

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified V1.3.0 is made up of the IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Hardware (2073-700) and File Module Software V1.3.0 (5639-VF1), plus a Storwize V7000 disk system. Each IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Hardware (2073-700) unit uses the IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Software, 5639-VF1. A quantity of one 5639-VF1 IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Software license is required for each File Module Hardware unit. For example, a IBM Storwize V7000 Unified order consisting of two (minimum) Storwize V7000 File Module Hardware units, one Storwize V7000 control enclosure, and three expansion enclosures, requires a quantity of two of the IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software license, 5639-VF1. It also requires the appropriate Storwize V7000 base Software (5639-VM1) in a quantity of four enclosures.

Inherent Block Storage Functions

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified V1.3.0 contains all the block storage function and enhancements included in IBM Storwize V7000 V6.3.0. For information on the IBM Storwize V7000 hardware and software, refer to the announcements listed in the Reference information section. Note that the presence of the File Module Software and File Module Hardware do not change the requirements on Storwize V7000 to license Remote Mirroring (5639-RM1). IBM Storwize V7000 Unified users are still required to license function the same as on a Storwize V7000 standard disk system.

LDAP

IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Software V1.3.0 requires that a LDAP be present on a separate server provided by the customer in order to provide authentication to the management console.

45-Day migration allowance

With the benefit of external virtualization, the block storage side of Storwize V7000 Unified allows customers to bring a system into their storage environment and very quickly and easily migrate block data from existing storage systems to the Storwize V7000 Unified. In order to facilitate this migration, IBM allows customers 45 days from the date of purchase of the Storwize V7000 Unified system to use the external virtualization function for the purpose of migrating block data from an existing storage system to the block storage on the Storwize V7000 Unified system. Any use thereafter, and ongoing use of the block storage external virtualization function of Storwize V7000 Unified, requires the purchase of a Storwize V7000 External Virtualization license (5639-EV1) at a quantity equal to the block storage capacity managed under the Storwize V7000 Unified system. Migrations performed at later points in time that are to completely replace other storage systems with the Storwize V7000 Unified, thereby requiring temporary virtualization of that external storage system to perform that replacement activity, are granted a 45-day period for use of external virtualization without having to purchase a license to complete such a migration effort. Customers must make their sales representative aware of their intent and when they will be starting this migration so that an end date can be tracked. It is the customer's responsibility to confirm that they are properly licensed for all external storage managed by Storwize V7000 Unified after those 45 days.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2.2

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4.2.2 now has two offerings that are licensed per storage devices:

  • IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select - This offering has the same capabilities found in IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition. It helps manage the end-to-end storage environment with the advanced storage optimization, SAN configuration planning, Configuration analysis and fabric performance management capabilities.
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Select - This offering is renamed from IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk Midrange Edition and has the same capabilities found in IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Disk. It helps monitor and report on performance of selected devices.

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center is a feature-rich storage management software suite, and the integrated suite provides detailed monitoring, reporting, and management within a single console. The V4.2.2 suite of distributed products delivers improved time-to-value with storage tiering reporting in Tivoli Common Reporting/Cognos in a virtualized storage environment. The product update on V4.2.2 also adds support for the File Module Software in the Storwize V7000 Unified solution. This includes the discovery and health monitoring of the file aspects of Storwize V7000 unified solution, capacity usage reporting, file system reporting and file and block storage mapping. It helps monitor, report and manage both file module and block module in the Storwize V7000 unified solution within a single console.

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select family is designed to license by the number of storage devices managed, and support IBM Storwize V7000, XIV®, DS3000, DS4000®, DS5000 as stand-alone devices or when attached to an IBM SVC. The Select family also supports any storage devices that are attached to Storwize V7000.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Select pricing terminology definition

Storage device

A storage device is a unit of measure by which the Program is licensed. A storage device is an independently powered, channel attached device that stores data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate storage devices. The licensee must obtain entitlements for every storage device which runs, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the Program and for every storage device on which the Program is installed. Instead of the entitlements required for the Program directly, the licensee must obtain entitlements for this Program sufficient to cover the storage devices managed by the Program.

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 International 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 International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

License Information form number
GI11-9479 License Information for IBM Storwize V7000 File Module Software

On or near the planned availability date, the current License Information documents 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

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
