Description

Explicit overwrite of deleted data — Data shredding

Data shredding is the explicit overwrite of deleted data to make it difficult to discover and reconstruct that data later. Tivoli Storage Manager now supports shredding data in random-access disk storage pools. You can perform shredding of sensitive data either automatically or manually when the data is deleted, to make it more difficult to discover or reconstruct the data later.

Tivoli Storage Manager performs shredding only on data in random-access disk storage pools. You can configure the server to ensure that sensitive data is stored only in storage pools in which shredding is enforced (shred pools). Shredding occurs only after a data deletion commits, but it is not necessarily completed immediately after the deletion. The space occupied by the data to be shredded remains occupied while the shredding takes place, and is not available as free space for new data until the shredding is complete. You can specify that the data is to be overwritten up to 10 times. The more times data is overwritten, the less likely that it can be recovered. This will also use more of your Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server resources and will impact performance. Shredding can be done either automatically after the data is deleted or manually by command. The advantage of automatic shredding is that it is performed without administrator intervention whenever deletion of data occurs. This limits the time that sensitive data might be compromised. The advantage of manual shredding is that it can be performed when it will not interfere with other server operations.

Backup set enhancements

Backup sets can be used to create media for rapid recovery or instant archives. Backup sets can be used to restore data to backup-archive clients locally, independent of the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server, as well as from a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server for additional capability.

Backup sets can also be used to create copies for long term retention from backup versions already stored on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server. Backup sets can optionally be given a description and retention period to simplify tracking and expiration. The backup sets are tracked in the volume history file.

Generating backup sets to a specific point-in-time — You now have more flexibility in defining the recovery point on backup sets or point-in-time data to be retained for archive purposes. You can generate a backup set to a specific point-in-time by using data and time parameters on the GENERATE BACKUPSET command. When these dates and times are specified, the new backup set will contain files that were active at the specified date and time, even if the files are inactive at the time the command is issued. Backup sets are generated to a point-in-time by using one of two date and time specifications: the date and time specified on the GENERATE BACKUPSET command or the date and time that command was issued. Files that have expired, or are marked as expire-immediately cannot be included in the backup set.

Multiple nodes on backup set volumes — You now have improved utilization of backup set media with the added capability to stack multiple backup sets on output volumes and to group client data with similar recovery requirements together. You can use new commands to group client nodes for backup set generation as a node group. A node group is a group of client nodes that are acted upon as a single entity. If one or more node groups are specified, the server generates a backup set for each node group and places all of the backup sets together on a single set of output volumes.

Generating backup sets with multiple data types — Backup sets can now contain file level and image data. You can specify which types of data are included in the backup set. Each backup set is stored separately on a single set of output media. Allowing multiple types of data on a backup set from a machine to reside on a single set of tapes is also an advantage for disaster recovery. Image backup sets include the image and all files and directories changed or deleted since the image was backed up. This allows all of the full backup sets on the media to represent the same point-in-time. Image backup sets data can be used during a disaster recovery situation, for example, when a hard drive crashes and needs to be replaced. Individual file restore is not possible using an image backup, so backup sets containing normal file system data should be maintained for most other restores.

Individual file restore — You can now display and restore individual files from a backup set when the backup set is on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server. Using the backup-archive client GUI, you can select backup sets, and display their contents down to the filespace, directory, or file level. You can then select individual filespaces, directories, or files to be restored from the backup set, or restore the entire backup set as before. Individual file restore is only available for file level backup sets. Image backup sets must be restored in their entirety.

Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center enhancements

The Web interface for administrators, called the Administration Center, provides easy deployment and administration, to help the user improve productivity, and to help the user use resources more efficiently. The Administration Center helps provide a consolidated view for managing the user's Tivoli Storage Manager servers.

The Administration Center is installed as an IBM Integrated Solutions Console (ISC) component. The ISC can also be used with other IBM products that have interfaces compatible with the ISC architecture. The Administration Center can be installed on distributed platforms to manage a Tivoli Storage Manager server on z/OS.

Enhancements to the Administration Center include:

A newer version of ISC that can improve install time, and reduce resource use — The newer version of ISC can improve the ease of installation and overall install time for ISC and the Administration Center to less than one third the install time of Tivoli Storage Manager V5.3.0.

Update administrator password to a group of selected servers — The Administration Center now supports updating the password on multiple servers selected from the table of servers administered by the Administration Center. This capability synchronizes the passwords kept on the Administration Center and on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS servers managed. The servers whose passwords are to be modified must be using the same administrator ID.

Fast Path provided for the experienced administrator — An improved command line interface is now available from the Administration Center that will take you to a second browser window where the command output is well formatted. In addition, improved usability features are available for the reuse of commands such as a history and retrieve of commands.

Enhanced storage pooling for faster restore and efficient storage utilization

Tivoli Storage Manager has introduced a new type of storage pool, the active-data pool, for storing only the active (current) versions of your backup data. The current versions of your backup data can now be grouped on disk (FILE volume format) during client backup to provide fast client restore times of backup data.

Client restores can begin almost immediately upon request. Active-data pool volumes, using FILE volume format, do not need to be mounted, and since they contain only active data, restore operations do not need to navigate past older backup data.

Active-data pools, that use removable media, reduce the amount of data and volumes stored on-site or off-site for recovery of active data in primary storage pools. You can include active-data pool volumes as part of a physical or electronic vaulting configuration. Vaulting active-data pools volumes save storage and bandwidth by copying and restoring only the active data.

Active-data pools complement copy storage pools when used for node and primary storage pool recovery. Active-data pools can be used for a fast recovery of your critical nodes, which have had their data backed up to active-data pools. Copy storage pools can be used to recover less critical nodes and any data objects that are damaged in primary pools.

Data can be written into active-data pools in two ways. First, during client backup, data can be written simultaneously to the primary storage pool, copy storage pools, and active-data pools. Second, data can also be written to active-data pools from the primary pools with a new command. You can copy data to active-data pools by running the command manually or as part of an administrative schedule or maintenance script. The copy to active-data pools will copy only the changes since the last time the command was run for that storage pool.

Reduced memory utilization on backup

A new variation of incremental backup uses less memory and allows backing up very large file systems, which cannot be backed up with traditional incremental backup. The new incremental backup method employs a memory conserving algorithm, which uses disk caching to significantly reduce backup memory utilization. The size of the disk cache created by the new backup method will depend on the total number of files and directories being backed up. The options to enable disk cache backup and to specify the location of the disk cache are specified in the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client options file and may be set with the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client preference editor.

Can improve security for scheduling the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client

The Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS administrator is a trusted user and, as such, has the ability to perform Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS operations on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client machines. There is a capability today to block all Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS administrator action on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS clients. Some Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS installations find it useful to have more granular control of the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS administrator operations allowed on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client machines.

Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS has added the capability to block the following actions on the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS client machines:

  • Executing a scheduled operating system command operation (action=cmd)
  • Executing a scheduled operating system command operation via the pre/post-schedule or pre/post-snapshot command defined in the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server client option set
  • Executing a scheduled restore or retrieve operation (action=restore or action=retrieve)

Windows 2003 system state backup with backup operator account

Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS has added the ability for granting a non-administrator account, which is a member of the backup operators group, the permissions needed to perform backup and restore operations on Windows 2003. This capability will enable you to better manage and control the issuance of administrator accounts.

Along with backup operator support, Tivoli Storage Manager has also improved performance in some situations when Tivoli Storage Manager is used with some third-party products that provide Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) or replication.

Windows Vista support

Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.4 provides basic backup and restore support for Microsoft™ Windows Vista similar to what is available to Windows XP and Windows 2003. The initial support does not include support for Automatic System Recovery.

VMware consolidated backup

The Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client for Windows can be used in conjunction with VMware's integration module for VMware consolidated backup. Consolidated backup enables off-host backup of virtual machines, eliminating backup load from the ESX Server, accelerating backups, and shortening backup windows.

Macintosh OS X Client V5.4 updates

The Tivoli Storage Manager client for Macintosh now supports Macintosh OS X on both PPC and Intel. The enhancements to the Macintosh OS X client include:

  • Universal binary support — You can now install and use Tivoli Storage Manager on both PPC and Intel-based Macintosh systems.
  • Option file and error log names — The Macintosh client has been changed to use the same option file and error log names as the other Tivoli Storage Manager clients. The Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS User Preferences file is now the dsm.opt file and the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS System Preferences file is now the dsm.sys file. During installation, old option files are renamed.
  • Support for the Web Interface — The Macintosh client now supports the Web Interface for remote backup and restore capability.

Linux Logical Volume Manager 2 (LVM2)

The Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS Linux client supports LVM2 for image backup. LVM2 refers to a new userspace toolset that provides logical volume management facilities on Linux. The image backup function with LVM1 is available with older releases of Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS. Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.4 will only support image backup with LVM2.

Novell Storage Services (NSS) File System on Open Enterprise Server (OES) Linux support

The Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS Linux x86 client supports the backup and restore of the NSS files system on OES Linux. This includes the backup and restore of the extended attributes, which include Access Control Lists (ACL). The support for extended attributes includes support of file systems that implement POSIX ACLs using extended attributes. The file systems that now have extended attribute support include Linux file systems ReiserFS, ext2, ext3 and XFS.

Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management V5.4 enhancements

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management provides HSM, which is an important component of information lifecycle management. Space Management helps free administrators and users from manual file system pruning tasks, and helps control the need for additional disk storage, by automatically and transparently migrating files via policy to near line or offline storage.

Space Management is available for AIX® JFS2 and GPFS, Linux GPFS, Solaris VxFS, and HP-UX JFS file systems.

Additional platform support added in V5.4 includes:

  • Linux SLES 9, 10, Red Hat 4 GPFS 32 bit OS support
  • Linux SLES 9, Red Hat 4, GPFS 64 bit OS support
  • GPFS 3.1 support with one HSM managed storage pool per file system
  • Solaris VxFS with zones support
  • HACMP™ V5.3

This release expands the flexibility of Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS for Space Management by adding support for NFS exported HSM managed file systems for the following configurations:

  • AIX/JFS2
  • Solaris/VxFS
  • HP-UX/JFS

Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management now supports the processing of a list of files on which to act. The new filelist parameter is available in the HSM commands dsmmigrate, dsmrecall, dsmls, and dsmattr. An administrator or an application can use shell commands or scripts to build a list of files to be migrated or recalled.

With Tivoli Storage Manager for Space Management V5.4, HSM can now be implemented on AIX where AIX journal-based backup is being used. Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS progressive incremental backup performance can be improved by using journal-based backup. Journal-based backup reduces the overhead for doing file selection for files to backup. Journal-based backup eliminates most queries to the Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server and the local file system, which can result in lower backup elapsed time and reduced resource usage.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS V5.4 enhancements

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS provides data retention capabilities that help meet corporate policy and regulatory requirements for data retention and disposition. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention's existing policy-based data management capabilities help meet these needs today through an open application programming interface (API). IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention is designed to prevent the modification of data under its control and to prevent the deletion of that data by unauthorized agents (individual or program) prior to the expiration of the retention period. This helps ensure that neither individuals nor programs can maliciously or accidentally delete data under IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention control.

V5.4 of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS, as well as IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, adds explicit overwrite of deleted data — data shredding functionality. This function allows the creation of data pools where expired files will be overwritten by a random write pattern. The number of overwrites is configurable. The objective is to make the data unreadable by forensic disk recovery tools.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail for z/OS V5.4

Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail for z/OS helps protect Lotus® Domino® within the Tivoli Storage Manager storage hierarchy. It supports online (hot) backup and exploits the backup-certified interfaces provided by Lotus Domino. This helps to maximize the protection of the data and the performance of backups and restores.

For Lotus Domino databases, this module protects Domino databases as well as the Domino transaction log, if Domino transaction logging is enabled. Also, exploitation of the transaction logging feature of Domino enables the capture of just the database changes for logged databases. Thus, full database backups are not required as frequently as when transaction logging is not employed.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM eServer® System z™ IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing, has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity . Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity . If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

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

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

Performance considerations: The Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS family of products' performance will vary depending upon a customer's particular configuration, the client/server options, and customization.

Planning information

Installability: For the z/OS server, the Tivoli Storage Manager database is not automatically upgraded. The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator must explicitly initiate the database upgrade utility, using the UPGRADEDB parameter, after the Tivoli Storage Manager server product has been installed. After the database has been upgraded, a previous version of the server product cannot be used to access the database.

As a normal precaution, it is recommended that a full database backup be performed before installing the V5.4 code, as well as after completing the installation. Refer to the Installation Guide manual for more detailed information.

As part of a migration plan from Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.3 to Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.4, Tivoli Storage Manager clients and servers may be upgraded at different times. To help prevent disruption to the user's backup and archive activities during the migration, note the following:

  • Tivoli Storage Manager V5.3 client can perform backup, restore, archive, and retrieve functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.4 server.
  • A Tivoli Storage Manager V5.4 client can perform backup, restore, archive, and retrieve functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.3 server.
  • A Tivoli Storage Manager V5.3 HSM client can perform migrate and recall functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.4 server.
  • A Tivoli Storage Manager V5.4 HSM client can perform migrate and recall functions to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.3 server.
  • Data that has been backed up from a Tivoli Storage Manager V5.4 client to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server can be restored using a Tivoli Storage Manager V5.3 client, except for files backed up by the V5.4 Linux and Windows clients.
  • Data that has been backed up from a Tivoli Storage Manager V5.2 or V5.3 client to a Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS server can be restored using a Tivoli Storage Manager V5.4 client.
  • Tivoli Storage Manager V5.3 and V5.4 command line administrative clients can administer Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS V5.3 and V5.4 servers.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing

IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the IBM 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 IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other IBM 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 IBM 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 IBM 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 of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

Where a server is physically partitioned, this approach is modified. 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 servers capable of physical partitioning (for example, IBM's pSeries Scalable POWERparallel Systems® servers, Sun Ultra servers, and HP Superdome servers), an entitlement is required for each processor in the physical partition being managed by the Tivoli application. For example, assume that a server has 24 processors installed in aggregate. If this server is not partitioned, entitlements are required for all 24 processors. If, however, it is physically partitioned into three partitions each containing eight processors, and Tivoli products were managing only one of the three partitions, then entitlements would be required for the eight processors on the physical partition managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

For servers with virtual or logical partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster. Where the cluster includes physically partitioned servers, the considerations described above concerning physically partitioned servers apply as well.

Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC/UNIX and Microsoft Windows/Intel technologies, in order to simplify the customers licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does 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

Millions of Service Units (MSU)

An MSU is defined as millions of Central Processing Unit (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).

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 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 another license or entitlement 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:

Cold — A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not 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, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlement for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.

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 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 your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your 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 processors 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® Web site

Notes

  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for z/O supports libraries with up to 4 drives and 48 slots. To use tape libraries using more than 4 drives and 48 slots, the customer must acquire a PoE for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS.
  • No mixing of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS 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 for z/OS or IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS level.
  • Client entitlements (notebooks, desktops, technical workstations) for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS are interchangeable.
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for z/OS and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS charge for all servers and clients that feed into a managed server.

System z server:

One 1,500 MSU System z server

All products in this example employ Value Unit slope VUE007 (VUE = Value Unit Exhibit). If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the applicable number of Value Units will be:

MSUs             Value Units/MSU    Value Units
 
Base        3    1.00                 3.00
Tier A     42     .45                18.90
 
Tier B    130     .36                46.80
 
Tier C    140     .27                37.80
 
Tier D  1,185     .20               237.00
 
Total   1,500                       343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is rounded up to the next integer, so the customer will need to license 344 Value Units in this example.

Value Units for non-MSU-based S/390 processors:

System                Value Units/System
 
MP3000 H30             6
 
MP3000 H50             8
 
MP3000 H70            12
 
ESL Models             2

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

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units

          MSUs     *    Value Units/MSU  =  Value Units
 
Base          3    *    1.00             =    3.00
Tier A       42    *     .45             =   18.90
Tier B      130    *     .36             =   46.80
Tier C      140    *     .27             =   37.80
Tier D    1,185    *     .20             =  237.00
 
Total     1,500                             343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.
