Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act

The products in this announcement are capable as of their general availability, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit-based pricing will help to align the prices of these products to the principle of the PSLC pricing curve which provides for a lower price per MSU (millions of service units per hour) for larger capacities.

There is also be a price benefit when customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity will based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) the customer has already installed, for example, additional capacity will not be priced starting at the base with a higher price per unit but on the capacity that is already installed.

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged/interchanged/aggregated with Value Units of another product.

IPLA and subscription and support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. The customer may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single Proof of Entitlement. It is the customer's responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Ordering z/OS through the Internet

ShopzSeries (formerly SHOPS390) provides an easy way to plan and order your z/OS ServerPac or CBPDO. It will analyze your current installation, determine the correct product migration, and present your new configuration based on z/OS. Additional products can also be added to your order (including determination of whether all product requisites are satisfied). ShopzSeries is available in the U.S. and several countries in Europe. In countries where ShopzSeries is not available yet, contact your IBM representative (or Business Partner) to handle your order via the traditional IBM ordering process. For more details and availability, visit the ShopzSeries Web site at

The products in this announcement have one charge unit: Value Units.

Value Units for IBM 9672 Processors will be based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all S/390-based systems that are measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the IBM System/370™, System/390® and zSeries® Machine Exhibit, (Z125-3901).

Value Units for zSeries will be based upon full MSU capacity as defined in the Machine Exhibits.

There will be a tool available that provides support for transforming the MSU-based capacities of S/390 systems to new Value Units by calculating the applicable number of Value Units for a given number of MSUs.

Basic license: To order, specify the program number, feature number 9001 for asset registration, and the one-time-charge (OTC) feature number. Also specify the feature number of the desired distribution medium. To suppress shipment of media, select the license-only option in CFSW.

When ordering DB2 and IMS Tools for use in a Parallel Sysplex® environment specify the number of Value Units to cover the MSU capacity of the machines in the Parallel Sysplex to which DB2, IMS, or both are licensed. The following examples illustrate how this rule applies to different situations.

  • DB2, IMS, or both licensed on a single server

    In a single zSeries server with a capacity of 140 MSUs with DB2, IMS or both are licensed to it, DB2 and IMS Tools licenses are based on the 140 MSU capacity of the machine.

  • DB2, IMS, or both licensed under PSLC in a sysplex

    In a four-way sysplex with DB2, IMS, or both on all four machines in the sysplex, DB2 and IMS Tools licenses are based on the total capacity in MSUs of all four machines or the total number of MSUs in the sysplex.

  • DB2, IMS, or both licensed under PSLC in a sysplex under CEC level pricing

    In a four-way sysplex with DB2, IMS, or both licensed to two machines in the sysplex, DB2 and IMS Tools licenses are based on the total capacity in MSUs of the two machines where DB2, IMS, or both are licensed.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone during normal business hours, and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the support program number. In Canada also specify feature number 9001 for asset registration. IBM is also providing subscription and support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Support (IAAS). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the base support to include technical support via telephone during normal business hours.
  • Entitles customers to future releases and versions at no additional charge. Customers are not entitled to new products.

Once Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will renew automatically annually unless cancelled by the customer.

No new Subscription and Support PIDs are introduced with this announcement.

Single version charging: To elect single version charging, the customer must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product media is shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, Systempac®). Non-customized items (CDs, diskettes, source media, media kits) will continue to be shipped via the stand-alone product.

Sub-capacity charges terms and conditions

zSeries software charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible tools apply when z/OS is running in z/Architecture™ (64-bit) mode on a zSeries 900, no other MVS™-based operating system is licensed to that server and the required information is provided by the customer in accordance with the applicable terms.

Sub-capacity charges for an eligible tool is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for eligible tools, the customer is required to:

  • Determine the MSUs needed for each machine on which the tools will run. Only machines on which the customer has implemented sub-capacity Workstation License Charges (WLC) according to the above terms and conditions, are eligible for charges at less than full machine capacity for the tools.
  • Use the product-defined capacity for z/OS (as specified on the Sub-Capacity Reports submitted to IBM for sub-capacity WLC) as the sub-capacity (MSUs) for each tool.
  • Submit any additional MSUs and/or Value Units required for each product along with the current entitlement in Value Units for each product.

Sub-capacity charges for tools

To be eligible for sub-capacity charges for tools, the machine on which the tools are running must be eligible for WLC sub-capacity charges terms and conditions. The customer must have signed the Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges — Pre-ILM (Z125-6516), and submitted at least one Sub-Capacity Report to IBM as defined in the attachment.

With sub-capacity charges, the charge for an eligible tool is based on the z/OS product-defined capacity. To obtain charges at less than full machine capacity for each eligible tool for each machine, the customer should:

  • Determine the MSUs needed for the machine on which the tools will run. In a data sharing environment, determine the aggregate MSUs needed on the machine where the tools run. Use the product-defined capacity (MSUs) for z/OS (as specified on the Sub-Capacity Reports submitted to IBM for sub-capacity WLC) as the sub-capacity (MSUs) for each Tool.
  • Submit any additional MSUs and/or Value Units required for each product along with the current entitlement in Value Units for each product.
  • If the use of sub-capacity pricing terms for tools results in a reduced requirement for Value Units, thus freeing up entitlements, customers can reallocate the entitlement difference by distributing the Value Units across a larger or different set of systems, or reserve them for future growth. There will be no refunds for these freed up Value Units. Subscription and Support volumes and entitlements for existing contracts will continue to be at the same levels as the acquired licenses.

Management of the Value Unit entitlements continues to be a customer responsibility. If one of the following occur on a machine to which tools are licensed, the customer must determine if additional Value Units and Subscription and Support need to be ordered for those tools to cover the increase:

  • The z/OS-defined capacity is increased.
  • The requirements for WLC sub-capacity charges are no longer met.

On/Off Capacity on Demand

To be eligible for On/Off Capacity on Demand pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract — Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade (Z125-6611), and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand — must be signed prior to use.
