Overview

WebSphere® MQ enables you to integrate your applications reliably and consistently, allowing you to leverage your existing software and hardware assets more effectively. As the current market leader for message-oriented middleware, it offers scalable, enterprise-class connectivity designed to grow with your integration challenges and needs. WebSphere MQ enables you to begin deploying your enterprise service bus (ESB) today and gain the benefits of an integrated service-oriented architecture (SOA).

WebSphere MQ provides reliable, resilient application integration by passing messages between applications and Web services. It reduces the risk of information loss and the need to reconcile communicating IT systems by using queuing and transactional facilities that help preserve the integrity of messages across the network. WebSphere MQ eliminates the need to write complex communications code and offers a choice of simple APIs (Message Queue Interface [MQI] and JMS) that are consistent across the range of more than 40 supported operating environments.

Description

WebSphere MQ

Speed to market and quality of service are critical for success, so companies need to be agile to survive. WebSphere MQ provides a versatile foundation for an enterprise service bus (ESB).

Business integration

WebSphere software includes business integration products and solutions that can help integrate just two applications, a single department, or the entire enterprise, reaching across business channels, trading partners, and Web customers. The WebSphere platform includes:

  • WebSphere MQ, the core of application integration, which integrates many platforms. Providing the messaging foundation for an ESB, and assuring reliable message delivery, it can be used alone or combined seamlessly with WebSphere Application Server. Both WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Application Server provide messaging resources that can form the foundation for a company's ESB, which can grow incrementally with their business needs.
  • WebSphere MQ Extended Security Edition, which enhances WebSphere MQ with end-to-end, application-level data protection features. It enables enterprise-wide, remote management of security polices on your MQ network and can be deployed to existing production environments without changes to existing WebSphere MQ applications.
  • WebSphere Message Broker (formerly WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker), a powerful information broker that includes a one-to-many connectivity model plus transformation, intelligent routing, and information flow modelling across multiple, disparate business systems. It also supports publications and subscriptions including mobile clients, and remote telemetry devices.
  • WebSphere MQ Everyplace™, which brings the benefits of assured message delivery and rock-solid security to the failure-prone environment of mobile working.
  • WebSphere MQ Workflow, a business process management system that enables the definition, execution, and swift change of complete business processes that span systems, applications, and people.
  • WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation, which builds on the best-in-class IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment to provide a powerful standards-based integration platform for building and deploying Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL) and Web Service-based composite applications.

In addition, IBM has further software products to support business integration, such as its WebSphere Business Integration Adapters.

Charge metrics definitions

"Per processor" charging under Full Capacity

In Full Capacity charging — where charges are based on a capacity-based metric, such as a processor — Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) must be acquired for all capacity that is active on the server where the Program or a component of the Program is run.

As an example, a Customer has ordered a server with four processors. The server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are "inactive." Thus, four processors are active for the customer.

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. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core 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 the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique which 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.

"Per processor" charging under Sub-capacity (when available)

Required authorized use for eligible Programs is based upon the highest observed daily utilization of the partitions where the Program or a component of the Program, executes during a reporting period as measured by an IBM license management tool. IBM license management tool use is required for your submission of periodic reports to IBM. For each sub-capacity eligible software Program, the required authorized use is re-evaluated based upon the quarterly sub-capacity reports submitted to IBM.

  • The number of authorizations you must acquire is the smaller value of either of the following methods:
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a Program is run in partitions with dedicated processors, the sum of the Processing Units of those partitions, and
      2. When a Program is run in partitions that are members of a Shared Processing Pool, the smaller of:

        The number of processors assigned to the pool, or

        The sum of the Virtual Processors of each Uncapped Partition plus the Processing Units in each Capped Partition running a Program.

  • z/VM® Guest Charging
    • The total number of active (available for use) processors in the machine, or
    • The sum of (1) and (2) as follows (any remaining fraction of a processor must be rounded up to a full processor in the final aggregation)
      1. When a program is run in VM Guests with dedicated processors, the sum of the Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines of those VM Guests, and
      2. When a program is run in VM Guests that are members of a Shared Processing Pool (z/VM), the smaller of:

        The number of processors assigned to the z/VM pool, or

        The sum of the IFL engines in each z/VM pool running a Program.

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. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core 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 the zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) environment, each IFL engine is considered a single "physical processor."
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does NOT affect the count of physical processors

"Per managed processor" charging under Full Capacity

"Per managed processor": 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 PoEs are defined in the Charges section of the Announcement or 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. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. With multi-core 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 zSeries Integrated Facility for Linux (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 on the blades with which the Program is affiliated.

Processor Day

Processor Day is defined as the number of physical processors that are activated to increase Temporary Capacity on a server during a contiguous 24-hour period, beginning at the time when Temporary Capacity is initiated. Processor usage is measured in day increments and is independent of the time of the day used. At initial activation, each processor being used is charged for one day of use; software charges are incurred on a daily basis for each processor that has been activated on a temporary basis for every IBM middleware program that is loaded on that server. An additional charge of a processor day is made for each 24 hours of continuous usage after the initial charge. For example: If the On/Off CoD server offering is activated on a pSeries® or an iSeries server and one temporary engine enabled for one day, the processor-day charge per product is applied for each eligible software product on that particular server. Likewise, if two temporary engines are enabled for one day, the processor-day price per product is multiplied by two engines and applied for each eligible software product on that particular server.

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: This program has warranty for a minimum of one year from acquisition from IBM or authorized IBM Business Partner. The warranty service provided to the licensed user, for at least one year from acquisition, is access to databases (read Web sites) for program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the licensed user can download or obtain otherwise and install at leisure.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers 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.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the Program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund.

  • For Programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the Program.
  • 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.

Software maintenance applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity, with voice and electronic access into IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option that is available.

While your 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 Guide at

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

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 preemptive 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. The news page 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.
