Overview

IBM WebSphere® Host Access Transformation Services for iSeries™, for Multiplatforms, and for zSeries® can now be purchased on a per processor basis in addition to the registered user license option that is currently available. The new per processor licensing option is applicable to all platforms on which HATS applications can be deployed. The processor-based licensing is intended for customers with large user bases, both intranet and Internet.

Customers that hold concurrent user licenses of HATS will still be able to receive maintenance on their existing licenses although the concurrent user license option will no longer be available. Refer to the Migration section for details.

In addition to the new license option, HATS for zSeries is being expanded to allow deployment to any platform on which IBM WebSphere Application Server runs, and will include a limited-entitlement copy of IBM WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment. HATS for zSeries will still be intended for those customers particularly focused on satisfying host access and network integration needs for 3270 connectivity.

When you receive the Program, consult the HATS V6.0.3 support site for features and functions that have been added since the last major release of HATS.

Product positioning

Application transformation

IBM offers a complete set of application transformation solutions that can enable enterprises to extend legacy applications to new users and to a service-oriented architecture. These solutions can allow customers to (1) improve the user experience, (2) adapt for broader connectivity, and (3) innovate by architecting applications for greater flexibility. The first style of transformation typically requires the lowest level of investment. With this method companies can achieve a quick return on investment by creating a better user experience. Improving the user interface can improve ease of use and can ultimately result in lower training costs, increased customer satisfaction, and boosts employee productivity. Host Access Transformation Services is IBM's leading product for customers looking to improve the user experience of 3270 and 5250 applications.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

In Full Capacity charging — PoE's must be acquired for all activated "processors" (available for use) that are on the server where the Program or a component of the Program is run.

  1. If there are Program Components included in the offering whose function is not to be included in the charge metric, these must be listed in the Program-unique Terms of the License Information.
  2. 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.
  3. Multi-core technology allows two or more processors (commonly called "cores") to be active on a single silicon chip. Unless otherwise announced, 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.
  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 blade on which the Program is run.

Registered User

A Registered User (User) is one and only one individual, machine, program or device with a specific identity (ID) within or outside your enterprise which is recorded in a registry (for example, table, directory, and so forth). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) is evidence of your authorization to use a Program and is required for each User accessing the Program or any Program component.

  1. Access to the Program is restricted to users recorded in the registry.
  2. Users have unique specific identity and ID?s cannot be shared
  3. When multiple, unique registries exist, the registries will be additive for charging purposes even if a specific ID exists in both registries.
  4. An ID may establish one or more connections and count as a single User.

Program-unique terms

The following text is taken from the IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Solution LI documents included with your purchase and is included here for your convenience.

HATS for iSeries

The WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services for iSeries defined as the "Program", may only be used for 5250 emulation. The Program is available based on two charging methods: Registered Users and Processor. Consult your Proof of Entitlement to determine which charging method applies to your license.

The Registered Users and Processor versions of the Program consist of the following Components:

  • IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services ("HATS") Toolkit
  • IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services ("HATS") Runtime
  • IBM WebSphere Application Server — Express ("Application Server — Express")

Entitlement to Program upgrades does not entitle you to upgrades to the individual components unless such components are upgraded as part of a Program upgrade. For example, if the IBM WebSphere Application Server — Express program product is upgraded, you will not be entitled to such upgrade unless a Program upgrade includes the upgraded version of IBM WebSphere Application Server — Express.

Program-unique terms

The Program is available based on two charging methods: Registered Users and Processor. If the Registered Users charging method is selected, the number of Program licenses purchased must equal the number of Registered Users accessing the Program from the Internet and/or intranet.

Registered Users License option

A Registered User is defined as a person who accesses and uses (i) the Program or (ii) a connection to an existing application from the Program. A Registered User is considered a distinct user. A Registered User Authorization is required for each distinct person that will access and use the Program. A Registered User license to the Program entitles a distinct Registered User to access and use the components of the Program subject to the limitations under "Component Restrictions" below.

Connections (from either users or other applications) made to the Program through other products that act as connection concentrators must be counted as Program users and are subject to use-base charges based on the number of Registered Users of those concentrators.

Processor License option

For each Proof of Entitlement you obtain under the Processor License Option, you are authorized to deploy and run HATS applications on a machine with a single processor. Alternatively, you may deploy and run HATS applications on a machine with multiple processors if you either:

  • i. acquire a Processor License Option Proof of Entitlement for each processor on such machine, or
  • ii. for the partitionable iSeries and AS/400® machines running OS/400, acquire a Single Processor Proof of Entitlement to the Program for each processor on such machine actually used by the HATS Components.

"Special Processor Implementation Instructions" can be found at the Welcome Page of the HATS InfoCenter Web site

Component restrictions

IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services Toolkit

The license to the Program entitles you to use the HATS Toolkit for an unlimited number of developers on an unlimited number of workstations for development purposes. Your entitlement to the HATS applications (Runtime deployments), which are generated by the HATS Toolkit, must be in accordance with one of the charging methods above when deployed to production.

IBM WebSphere Application Server — Express

Registered Users License option

The Program is accompanied by WebSphere Application Server — Express. Except as modified by this Agreement, your use of the WebSphere Application Server — Express components will be governed by the license terms that accompany the WebSphere Application Server — Express components. The license to the Program entitles you to install and use one WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with a single processor provided that you acquire 50 Registered User authorizations. You may use one additional WebSphere Application Server — Express on one additional processor for each additional 100 Registered User authorizations that you acquire.

HATS Registered Users to Total Copies of WebSphere Application Server — Express

  • 1 to 49 — 0
  • 50 to 149 — 1
  • 150 to 249 — 2
  • 250 to 349 — 3
  • and so on

For each WebSphere Application Server — Express to which you are entitled, you are authorized to install and use each component of WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with a single processor. Alternatively, you may install and use each copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express on a machine with multiple processors if you either:

  • i. allocate a copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express to which you are entitled per this Agreement to each additional processor on such machine; or,
  • ii. acquire a Single Processor Proof of Entitlement of WebSphere Application Server — Express for each additional processor on such machine; or,
  • iii. for partitionable iSeries and AS/400 machines running OS/400, allocate a copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express to which you are entitled per this Agreement to each additional processor on such machine or acquire a Single Processor Proof of Entitlement of WebSphere Application Server — Express for each processor actually used by the entitled copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express on such machine, as measured or limited using IBM provided tools. To determine the number of processors in a machine actually used by the entitled copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express, you may aggregate portions of physical processors used in the same machine, but you must acquire an additional Single Processor Proof of Entitlement of WebSphere Application Server — Express for any remaining fraction of a processor in such machine used by the entitled copy of WebSphere Application Server — Express after this aggregation.

Processor License option

You are authorized to install and use one WebSphere Application Server — Express on the same server machine per each deployment of HATS processor to which you are entitled under this Agreement.

In any event, the license to the Program limits your use of WebSphere Application Server — Express to machines with up to two processors. However, there is no limit on the number of machine processors if you use WebSphere Application Server — Express on iSeries and AS/400 machines running OS/400 or i5/OS.

You are entitled to use the WebServer Plugins to improve security by having an HTTP server run on a separate machine from WebSphere Application Server — Express. You are authorized to only have a one to one web server to application server link with no load balancing support.

In addition, the license to the Program entitles you to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components only to run HATS applications, to run objects created by HATS applications, and to enable connections with HATS applications to other applications and sources of data. The license to the Program does not for instance, entitle you to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components to run applications that do not require the HATS applications to operate. If you wish to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components without these restrictions, you must purchase separate authorizations to use the WebSphere Application Server — Express components.

HATS for Multiplatforms and HATS for zSeries

The WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services for Multiplatforms, or the WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services for zSeries, each defined as the "Program", is available based on two charging methods: Registered Users and Processor. Consult your Proof of Entitlement to determine which charging method applies to your license.

The Registered Users and Processor versions of the Program consist of the following Components:

  • IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services ("HATS") Toolkit
  • IBM WebSphere Host Access Transformation Services ("HATS") Runtime
  • IBM WebSphere Application Server

Entitlement to Program upgrades does not entitle you to upgrades to the individual components unless such components are upgraded as part of a Program upgrade. For example, if the IBM WebSphere Application Server program product is upgraded, you will not be entitled to such upgrade unless a Program upgrade includes the upgraded version of IBM WebSphere Application Server.

Program-unique terms

The Program is available based on two charging methods: Registered Users and Processor. If the Registered Users charging method is selected, the number of Program licenses purchased must equal the number of Registered Users accessing the Program from the Internet and/or intranet.

Registered Users License option

A Registered User is defined as a person who accesses and uses (i) the Program or (ii) a connection to an existing application from the Program. A Registered User is considered a distinct user. A Registered User Authorization is required for each distinct person that will access and use the Program. A Registered User license to the Program entitles a distinct Registered User to access and use the components of the Program subject to the limitations under "Component Restrictions" below.

Connections (from either users or other applications) made to the Program through other products that act as connection concentrators must be counted as Program users and are subject to use-base charges based on the number of Registered Users of those concentrators.

Processor License option

For each Proof of Entitlement you obtain under the Processor License Option, you are authorized to deploy and run HATS applications on a machine with a single processor. Alternatively, you may deploy and run HATS applications on a machine with multiple processors if you either:

  • i. acquire a Processor License Option Proof of Entitlement for each processor on such machine, or
  • ii. for the partitionable iSeries and AS/400 machines running OS/400, acquire a Single Processor Proof of Entitlement to the Program for each processor on such machine actually used by the HATS Components.

"Special Processor Implementation Instructions" can be found at the Welcome Page of the HATS InfoCenter Web site
