Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples
Bottom rule

Licensing metric definitions

Tivoli software products are priced using Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the 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 Tivoli's monitoring product ( IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other 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 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 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 core of the server managed by the 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 processor cores on the server. For each Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processor cores on each server in the cluster.

Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC and UNIX™ and Microsoft Windows and Intel™ technologies, in order to simplify the customer's licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing do 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

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.

Enterprise

An Enterprise is a person or single entity and the subsidiaries owned by more than 50 percent.

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 OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM IFL will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS , OS/390 , VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems or applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications that 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, is supported by the IBM S/390 IFL.

Managed Processor Core (charging under full capacity in the managed environment)

Managed Processor Core charges are based on the active processor cores on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processor cores that require Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) 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 1 or more arithmetic and logic units.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processor (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 run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the program's valuation method.
  4. In the System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  5. Threading, a technique which 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
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

MSU

Millions of Service Units (MSU) is defined as millions of CPU service units per hour; the measure of capacity used to describe the computing power of the hardware processors on which S/390 or System z software runs. Processor MSU values are determined by the hardware vendor, IBM , or Software Compatible Vendors (SCVs).

For more detailed information about System z software pricing, go to

http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/resources/swprice/

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.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In 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 other licenses 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:

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 switchover 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), 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 MSUs. 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 a specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. Customers must obtain a PoE for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for their 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 processor cores 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 website

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

Product and licensing websites

A complete list of IBM Tivoli products is available at

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

IBM Tivoli product licensing documents are available at

http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/licensing.html

Passport Advantage

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the Entitled Passport Advantage discount.

To determine the required IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage , the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.

Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:

The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.

Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.

For additional information on Passport Advantage , refer to the following

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

Distributed pricing examples

The following examples are provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit based, with the exception of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. 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 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 website

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

References to all other non-processor-based metrics do represent the actual number of entitlements required, unless other designated measurements are referenced or unless otherwise specified.

IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler

The following customer network applies to all of the examples to enable the reader to see where products tend to manage something less than the entire environment. The customers environment includes Distributed Servers :

Others:

The customer desires to schedule work on its 14-way distributed server and its 24-way distributed server. Thus, the customer must obtain Processor Value Unit entitlements associated with the following number of processor cores, for its distributed environment:

                              Quantity in customer     Processor cores
Systems managed               environment              to be licensed

The servers include 1 instance of Oracle (on the 14-way distributed server), 1 of SAP (on the 24-way distributed server), and 1 custom mainframe application (on the 14-way System z server). Thus, the customer must obtain Processor Value Unit entitlements associated with the following number of processor cores:

                              Quantity in customer    Processor cores
Systems managed               environment             to be licensed
 
14-way                        1                       14
24-way                        1                       24

Notes:

IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS and IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler distributed Agent for z/OS

If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the total number of Value Units will be:

 
 MSUs                        Value Units/MSU    Value Units
 
 Base         3              1.00                3.00
 
 Tier A      42               .15                6.30
 
 Tier B     130               .08               10.40
 
 Tier C     140               .04                5.60
 
 Tier D    1,185              .03               35.55
 
 Total     1,500                                60.85

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is rounded up to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 61 Value Units in this example.

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

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.
