IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS® enhances the already function-rich data retention capability of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS and z/VM1 to provide for data retention policies that help meet regulatory requirements2.
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS, and its complementary products, provide a comprehensive solution focused on the key data protection activities of backup, archive, recovery, space management, and disaster planning. Tivoli Storage Manager enables high availability of business applications by providing outstanding data protection and unique technology to help improve performance and storage resource utilization. Additionally, optional application modules for mail, databases, application servers, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and hardware provide higher levels of application and hardware integration with the data protection process.
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS's existing policy-based data management capabilities help meet the needs of many regulated industries today through an open application programming interface (API). For applications which use the Tivoli Storage Manager API, Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS strengthens IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS's data management capabilities because it is designed to prevent data deletion before the retention criteria is satisfied. Content management and archive applications can utilize the Tivoli Storage Manager API to apply business policy management for ultimate deletion of archived files at the appropriate time.
What's new with Tivoli Storage Manager
Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS is enhanced to help meet additional requirements defined by the regulatory agencies for retention and disposition of data. These enhancements include new functionality delivered in three key areas:
- Data retention protection
- Event-based retention management
- Expiration/deletion suspension (deletion hold)
For future reference in this announcement, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS and
z/VM® is referred to as Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS.

January 16, 2004
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS extends its function-rich data retention capability to provide for data retention policies that help meet regulatory requirements for data retention and disposition. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS's existing policy-based data management capabilities helps meet the needs of many regulated industries today through an open API. This support falls into two functional areas:
- Access control
- Data protection
Access control: Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS is designed to prevent modification to files archived in Tivoli Storage Manager, thereby helping to preserve the data as fixed and unalterable. Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS can prevent deletion of the data by unauthorized agents (people or applications) prior to the expiration of the retention time specified in the Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS policy. An application using the Tivoli Storage Manager API is required to provide Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention capabilities. Content management and archive applications can utilize the Tivoli Storage Manager API to apply business policy management for ultimate deletion of archived data at the appropriate time.
Data protection: Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS can provide backup protection of non-alterable copies of data. This includes archive copies stored at a physically separate facility which may be required by government regulations. Storing copies at a separate facility can be accomplished by creating archives on-site and physically transporting and tracking the media, or by using remote distance storage attachments to perform the backup directly to the physically separate site. Multiple backup copies of the data can be created and managed through Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS's Copy Storage Pools to automate both on-site and off-site storage and management of data.
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager differentiation
Content management and archive applications, utilizing the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager API, can provide intelligent integration and management of data based on business needs. This integration provides a solution that is designed to work together for consistent management of data, linking the business policy to data protection infrastructure.
Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS supports an extensive number of devices and device types for storage of data. Unlike other solutions that utilize a single hardware device, Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS allows the user to choose the device and media most appropriate to the business, and migrate the data throughout a storage hierarchy based on policy.
What's new for Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS V5.2.2 archive API data
IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS is being enhanced to help meet additional requirements defined by the regulatory agencies for retention and disposition of data. The new IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS enhancements will be delivered in three key areas:
- Data retention protection
- Event-based retention management
- Expiration/deletion suspension
Data retention protection: Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS currently is designed to prevent the modification of data under Tivoli Storage Manager control and the deletion of that data by unauthorized agents (individual or program). The new Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS functionality extends this protection to help prevent the deletion by any agent prior to the expiration of the retention period. This helps assure that neither individuals nor programs can maliciously or accidentally delete data under Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS control.
Event-based retention management: Event-based retention policy provides for retention management of data based on business events. This allows the user to specify specific triggers affecting the retention of data relative to the occurrence of a business event such as the closure of a bank account. This more closely aligns Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for z/OS's data retention policy with business requirements for data.
Expiration/deletion suspension (deletion hold): This provides the ability to suspend deletion of specified objects in response to a pending or ongoing action that requires that particular data be held. Upon determination that the suspension is no longer required, normal expiration timing resumes per the original retention period.
Accessibility by people with disabilities
For software offerings:
The IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Data Retention for z/OS has been reviewed for Accessibility Readiness, and an IBM accessibility checklist has been completed.
The following features support use by people with disabilities:
- Operation by keyboard alone using Command Line Interface, Windows 2000, and XP Native GUI
- Screen readers for use by people with visual impairment when using Command Line Interface
- Screen magnifiers for use by people with visual impairment when using Command Line Interface, Windows 2000, and XP Native GUI
- Optional display of audio alerts for people with hearing impairment using Windows 2000 and XP Native GUI
- Optional font enlargement and high-contrast display settings for Windows 2000 and XP Native GUI
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 customers grow their capacity. Additional capacity will be based on the number of Value Units (MSUs) the customer has already 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.
Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged/interchanged/aggregated with Value Units of another product.
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
MSUs MSUs Value Units/ minimum maximum MSUs Base 1 3 1 Tier A 4 45 0.45 Tier B 46 175 0.36 Tier C 176 315 0.27 Tier D 316 + 0.2
Value Units for non MSU-based S/390® processors:
Value Units/ Hardware machine MP3000 H30 6 MP3000 H50 8 MP3000 H70 12 ESL Models 2
The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.
If the customer has installed 1,500 MSUs, the applicable Value Units would be:
Translation from MSUs to Value Units Value Value MSUs * Units/MSUs = 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.
Example: In the above ordering example, for the product running on a machine with 1,500 MSUs requiring 344 Value Units, order feature number for quantity 1 for quantity 94, and feature number for quantity 250 for quantity 1, for a total of 344 Value Units.
