Overview

IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager for Data Retention enhances the already function-rich data retention capability of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition to provide for data retention policies that help meet regulatory requirements.1

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition, and its complementary products, provide a comprehensive solution focused on the key data protection activities of backup, archive, recovery, space management, and disaster planning. Tivoli Storage Manager enables high availability of business applications by providing outstanding data protection and unique technology to help improve performance and storage resource utilization. Additionally, optional application modules for mail, databases, application servers, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and hardware provide higher levels of application and hardware integration with the data protection process.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager's existing policy-based data management capabilities helps meet the needs of many regulated industries today through an open application programming interface (API). For applications which use the Tivoli Storage Manager API, Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention strengthens Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition's data management capabilities because it is designed to prevent data deletion before the retention criteria is satisfied. Content management and archive applications can utilize the Tivoli Storage Manager API to apply business policy management for ultimate deletion of archived data at the appropriate time.

What's new with Tivoli Storage Manager

Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is enhanced to help meet additional requirements defined by the regulatory agencies for retention and disposition of data. These enhancements include new functionality and new device support and are delivered in four key areas:

  • Data retention protection
  • Event-based retention management
  • Expiration/deletion suspension (deletion hold)
  • Additional Write Once Read Many (WORM) tape and DVD-ROM library support

Description

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition extends its function rich data retention capability to provide for data retention policies that helps meet regulatory requirements for data retention and disposition. Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition's existing policy-based data management capabilities helps meet the needs of many regulated industries today through an open application programming interface (API). This support falls into two functional areas:

  • Access control
  • Data protection

Access control — Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is designed to prevent modification to data archived in Tivoli Storage Manager, thereby helping to preserve the data as fixed and unalterable. Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition can prevent deletion of the data by unauthorized agents (people or applications) prior to the expiration of the retention time specified in the Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition policy. Content management and archive applications can utilize the Tivoli Storage Manager API to apply business policy management for ultimate deletion of archived data at the appropriate time.

Data protection — Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition can provide backup protection of non-alterable copies of data. This includes archived copies stored at a physically separate facility, which may be required by government regulations. Storing copies at a separate facility can be accomplished by creating archives on-site and physically transporting and tracking the media, or by using remote distance storage attachments to perform the backup directly to the physically separate site. Multiple backup copies of the data can be created and managed through Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition's Copy Storage Pools to automate both on-site and off-site storage and management of data.

Tivoli Storage Manager differentiation

Content management and archive applications, utilizing the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager API, can provide intelligent integration and management of data based on business needs. This integration provides a solution that is designed to work together for consistent management of data, linking the business policy to data protection infrastructure.

Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition supports an extensive number of devices and device types for storage of data. Unlike other solutions that utilize a single hardware device, Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition allows the user to choose the device and media most appropriate to the business, and migrate the data throughout a storage hierarchy based on policy. To help meet regulatory agencies' requirements for data that must be stored on media that cannot be altered, the storage hierarchy includes support for WORM Tape and WORM Optical Disk.

What's new for Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition V5.2.2 archive API data

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is being enhanced to help meet additional requirements defined by the regulatory agencies for retention and disposition of data. The new IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention enhancements will be delivered in three key areas:

  • Data retention protection
  • Event-based retention management
  • Expiration/deletion suspension

Data retention protection — Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition currently is designed to prevent the modification of data under Tivoli Storage Manager control and the deletion of that data by unauthorized agents (individual or program). New Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention functionality extends this protection to help prevent the deletion by any agent prior to the expiration of the retention period. This helps assure that neither individuals nor programs can maliciously or accidentally delete data under Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention control.

Event-based retention management — Event-based retention policy provides for retention management of data based on business events. This allows the user to specify specific triggers affecting the retention of data relative to the occurrence of a business event such as the closure of a bank account. This more closely aligns Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition's data retention policy with business requirements for data.

Expiration/deletion suspension (deletion hold) — This provides the ability to suspend deletion of specified objects in response to a pending or ongoing action that requires that particular data be held. Upon determination that the suspension is no longer required, normal expiration timing resumes per the original retention period.

What's new for Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition device support

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition device support has enhanced support for WORM tape and DVD. Support for these devices helps meet regulatory agencies' requirements for a subset of data that must be stored on media that cannot be altered. This is in addition to other software or hardware controls in place.

Tivoli Storage Manger Extended Edition also includes support for selected high-capacity, non-erasable DVD-ROM. DVD-ROM support provides another storage device that helps meet the regulatory agencies' requirements as well as extending the Tivoli Storage Manager managed storage hierarchy with a new storage device.

Accessibility by people with disabilities

The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention has been reviewed for Accessibility Readiness, and an IBM accessibility checklist has been completed.

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Operation by keyboard alone using Command Line Interface, Windows 2000, and XP Native GUI
  • Screen readers for use by people with visual impairment when using Command Line Interface
  • Screen magnifiers for use by people with visual impairment when using Command Line Interface, Windows 2000, and XP Native GUI
  • Optional display of audio alerts for people with hearing impairment using Windows 2000 and XP Native GUI
  • Optional font enlargement and high-contrast display settings for Windows 2000 and XP Native GUI

Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model 

The unique element of this model, introduced in 2000, is that pricing and licensing is based on what is managed (for example, clients, servers, and network devices), not on how the customer chooses to implement the technical facets of a Tivoli solution (for example, management servers, gateways, and endpoints).

Most IBM Tivoli products are priced on the Environment-Managed Licensing Model. Management capability for a certain environment is acquired for each Tivoli discipline required. The customer is free to implement any of the Tivoli Enterprise™ software components (Tivoli Management Region servers, gateways, or endpoints) in any quantity to best manage within the environment for which the discipline was acquired, without cost complications. As architecture changes, the customer's implementation can be altered as needed without affecting the licensing for the products acquired. This represents a significant change from the typical systems management licensing models that are based on purchasing the specific components and licensing them to specific systems.

A server is defined by its use in the environment, not by its role in a Tivoli solution. All servers in an environment are priced as servers, offering the flexibility to serve Tivoli applications from any system in the enterprise without any change in cost. Servers are licensed and priced corresponding to each installed processor to better correlate cost to value while offering a simple, scalable solution. In addition to traditional clients, other devices can be managed in a server/device model, including:

  • Personal digital assistants (PDAs)
  • Point-of-sale terminals (tills and cash registers)
  • Automated teller machines (ATMs)
  • Appliances

In the Environment-Managed Model, only the systems or devices managed require licensing.

The server definition has been updated since Value-Based Pricing was introduced in February 2000, to recognize the convergence of RISC/UNIX® and Microsoft Windows/Intel™ technologies, to simplify the customer's licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Servers are licensed and priced on a per-installed-processor basis. The pricing and licensing does not differentiate between distributed server platforms or operating systems. It is consistent for all distributed servers. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to IBM eServer zSeries and other host servers as well.

For servers capable of physical partitioning, the licensing is based on the number of processors in the partition for the application managed. Note that this applies only to fixed partitions, not variable workload. This partitioning technique is the approach used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. For systems with virtual or logical partitions, licensing is required for all processors in the server. For clustered environments, the licensing is determined by the cumulative number of installed processors in each server in the cluster.

Terminology definitions

Client

A client is a client device.

Client device

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, personal digital assistants, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Partitions

A server's resources (CPU, memory, I/O, interconnects, and buses) may be divided according to the needs of the applications running on the server. This partitioning can be implemented with physical boundaries ("Physical Partitions") or logical boundaries ("Logical Partitions").

Physical Partitions are defined by a collection of processors dedicated to a workload. In this method, the partitions are divided along hardware boundaries and processors, and the I/O boards, memory, and interconnects are not shared.

Logical Partitions are defined by software rather than hardware and allocate a pool of processing resources to a collection of workloads. These partitions, while separated by software boundaries, share hardware components and run in one or more physical partitions.

Processor

A processor is a functional unit in a computer that interprets and executes instructions. A processor consists of at least an instruction control unit and an arithmetic and logic unit.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more clients and/or other devices over a network. Examples include, but are not limited to, file servers, print servers, mail servers, database servers, application servers, and Web servers.

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 license for the backup copy is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a "hot" backup situation, the customer needs to acquire another license or authorizations sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be under the customer's control, even if they are 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 be stored for backup purposes on a machine as long as the program has not been 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, and is doing work. However, this program must be ordered, and there is a charge for this copy.

"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 both the "warm" and "hot" situations and licenses must be purchased.

Tivoli Storage Management specific terms

  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager supports tape libraries up to, and including, 3 drives and 40 slots. To use tape libraries using more than 3 drives or 40 slots, you must acquire a proof of entitlement for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.
  • There is no mixing and matching of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition at a site. The entire site must be at the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition level for licensing if any of the systems are at this level.

Product Web site

A complete list of products and licensing documents are available at the following Web site:

Pricing model examples

The general environment for the examples: The following customer network applies to the following example to enable the reader to see where products tend to manage something less than the entire environment.

Customer ABC has an environment with 100 distributed servers, as follows:

  • One 8-way processor
  • One 14-way processor
  • One 24-way processor

The environment also includes 1,500 total clients.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager example

Notes:

  1. No mixing or matching of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition processor entitlements is permitted on servers residing at the same site. A site must have all Storage Management server processor entitlements at either the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition level.
  2. Client entitlements (notebooks, desktops, technical workstations) for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are interchangeable.

Scenario: Customer ABC wants to implement Tivoli Storage Manager at their site.

The customer will require the following licensing.

Note: Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition is required as a prerequisite for Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention. Therefore, every processor that is licensed for Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention must also be licensed for Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.

New licensees: Orders for new licenses will be accepted now.

Shipment will begin on the planned availability date.

License transferability: Charge units are product specific and may not be transferred to another product.

Note: There is no transferability in licensing between platforms for end-to-end products where pricing on the IBM eServer zSeries platform is based on MSUs and pricing on other platform servers is per processor.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no additional charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and pre-emptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
