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 a price benefit when you grow your capacity. Additional capacity is based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) you have 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.
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.

Value Unit Exhibit VUE007
Value Value Units/ Units/ Usage Level Minimum Maximum MSU HW Machine Base 1 3 1 MP3000 H30 6 PSLC / Level A 4 45 0.45 MP3000 H50 8 PSLC / Level B 46 175 0.36 MP3000 H70 12 PSLC / Level C 176 315 0.27 ESL Models 2 PSLC / Level D 316 + 0.2
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 IBM 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.
Translation from MSUs to Value Units
MSUs Value Units/MSU Base 1-3 1.00 Tier A 4-45 .45 Tier B 46-175 .36 Tier C 176-315 .27 Tier D 316+ .20
Note: For the actual translation from MSUs to Value Units for this product, see below.
Ordering Example: The total number of Value units is calculated according to the following example:
If you installed 1500 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would 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 1185 * .20 = 237.00 Total 1500 344
When calculating the total number of Value Units, round the sum up to the next integer.
Feature Number 1 Value Unit 0001 250 Value Units 0002
Example: For a product running on machines with 1500 MSUs requiring 344 Value Units, you would order feature number 0001, quantity 94, and feature number 0002, quantity 1.
Note: For actual feature numbers, see below.
Value Units for Non-MSU-Based S/390 Processors
H30 = 6.00 Value Units H50 = 8.00 Value Units H70 = 12.00 Value Units P/390, R/390, IBM 3006 = 2.00 Value Units
