    Value Unit-based Pricing

    Value Unit pricing for eligible zSeries IPLA programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each zSeries 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 customers. For each zSeries 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 offers additional price benefits for customers. The quantity of each zSeries IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as 'entitled license capacity'. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a zSeries IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based on the the number of Value Units already acquired.

    For each zSeries 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, and

    • 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 VUs 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

    http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

    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 zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS section.

    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.

    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 opon 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-zSeries server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to zSeries 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 zSeries software runs. Processor MSU values are determined by the hardware vendor, IBM, or Software Compatible Vendors (SCVs).

    http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/library/refguides/sw_ pricing.html

    Network Node or Node

    Network Nodes include routers, switches, hubs, and bridges that contain a network management agent. A single Network Node may contain any number of interfaces or ports.

    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 and can be used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. 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.

    Port

    A port is the physical connection between a device and the network.

    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 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(s) 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(s) 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 metric used to compute license quantities, is program specific, and is typically only used on products managing zSeries systems.

    Pricing Examples

    IBM Tivoli Systems Automation for GDPS/PPRC HyperSwap Manager 

    The customer desires to implement the GDPS/PPRC HyperSwap solution on its 1,500 MSU zSeries server. The customer already has a license for IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS on the systems to be managed. Because licensing is per Value Unit (calculated based on the number of MSUs) on the zSeries servers monitored, the customer must obtain the following entitlements:

    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    |MSUs           |Value Units / MSU    | Value Units  |
    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    |Base        3  |        1.00         |     3.00     |
    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    |Tier A     42  |         .15         |     6.30     |

    |---------------+---------------------+--------------|
    

    When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is rounded up o to the next integer. So the customer will need to license 61 1 MSUs in this example.

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

    Terms and Conditions

    Sub-capacity terms and conditions

    For each zSeries 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'. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

    • the zSeries IPLA program you select

    • the applicable Value Unit Exhibit

    • the applicable Terms

    • whether your current mainframes are full-capacity or sub-capacity

    For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the zSeries IPLA program you selected, refer to the ORDERING INFORMATION section

    Program                                            Parent(s),
    Number      Program Name      Terms                if Applicable
    ---------  -----------------  -------------------  -------------
     
    

    Full-Capacity Mainframes 

    In cases where full-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

    Execution-Based, z/OS-Based, Full-Machine-Based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, see 'The System/370(TM), System/390(R), and zSeries(TM) Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901)' or visit the 'Mainframes' section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

    http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

    Reference-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the 'parent' program.

    Sub-Capacity Mainframes 

    In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply:

    Execution-Based: The required capacity of a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPAR(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    z/OS-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS (and z/OS.e) on the machine(s)where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    Reference-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the 'parent' program.

    Full Machine-Based: The required license capacity of a zSeries IPLA program with full machine-based terms equals the MSU rated capacity of the machine(s) where the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    For more information on mainframe MSU rated capacities, see 'The System/370(TM), System/390(R), and zSeries(TM) Machine Exhibit (Z125-3901)' or visit the 'Mainframes' section of the zSeries Exhibits Web site

    http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

    For more information on sub-capacity zSeries IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Marketing Announcement letter ZA04-0227 dated August 10, 2004.

    Additional Information for Products with Reference-Based Terms zSeries IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in environment the zSeries IPLA program executes.

    An environment is defined as either a single/stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex. Customers may have one or more different environments across their enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each zSeries IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

    When a zSeries IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment the required license capacity of the zSeries IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex.

    1. Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the Sysplex

    Sub-Capacity Eligibility 

    To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select zSeries IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be zSeries (or equivalent). On that machine:

    • All instances of the OS/390 operating system must be migrated to the z/OS (or z/OS.e) operating systems

    • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued

    • All instances of the z/OS operating (or z/OS.e) systems must be running in z/Architecture (64-bit) mode

    For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the zSeries Software Pricing Web site

    http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

    You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

    • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for zSeries Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).

    • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for z800 and z890 Software License Charges (Z125-6587).

    Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - 'Amendment for zSeries Platform Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929-02 or higher)'. Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous zSeries IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

    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 - Z125-6611, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software - must be signed prior to use.

    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 a 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.
