Trade-up example 1

A customer who has five SE Developer licenses and five SE Runtime licenses would like to trade-up to IDS Express and run on a two-processor server. Since the customer has a total of 10 concurrent sessions, the allowable trade-up is only to IDS Express Server+/authorized user metric.

Five SE Developer licenses trade to:

  • One server license for IDS Express
  • Four authorized user licenses for IDS Express

Five SE Runtime licenses trade to:

  • Five authorized user licenses for IDS Express

Resulting in a total of one IDS Express Server™ license and nine authorized user licenses.

Note: IDS Express Server does not include any user authorizations.

Trade-up example 2

A customer who has 30 OnLine Extended Edition licenses would like to trade-up to IDS Express Unlimited and run on a two-processor server. Since the customer has a total of 30 concurrent sessions, the allowable trade-up is to only one IDS Express processor license. The customer must buy the second license at entitlement price.

25 OnLine Extended Edition licenses trade to:

  • One processor license for IDS Express
  • Must buy a new license for the second processor

Note: A minimum of 25 concurrent session licenses may be traded for an IDS Express processor license.

XPS V8.51

XPS V8.51 is designed for the largest, most demanding, and most complex data warehouse applications. By including comprehensive data warehousing features and using a sophisticated shared-nothing underlying architecture, XPS achieves industry-leading performance and flexibility. This enables you to make more profitable decisions from complex, query-intensive, analytical applications.

The following Informix products are bundled with XPS V8.51, and can also be ordered separately for use with other servers:

  • Connect Runtime V2.90
  • Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) V3.00
  • Server Administrator (ISA) V1.60

Charge metrics definitions

Processor

In Full Capacity charging, PoEs 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.

"per Server"

Any machine on which a program or a component of a program is run. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) is evidence of your authorization to use a program and is required for each Server on which the program is run.

  1. Programs are "installed" onto a storage device which may or may not be part of the Server, thus, "run" is important here as the program may be stored on a CD, Storage Area Network (SAN), available via SCSI, and so on.
  2. The number of partitions or processors on the Server is irrelevant.
  3. Where "blade" technology is employed, each "blade" is considered a separate Server.

Authorized user

An authorized user (user) is one and only one individual, machine, program, or device with a specific identity (ID) within or outside your enterprise.

A PoE is evidence of your authorization to use a program and is required for each User accessing the program or any component, application, feature, function, and/or capability thereof, either directly or indirectly, through any means on behalf of the user in any manner.

The program may be installed on one or more computers, and accessed by multiple users provided that a user authorization has been obtained for each individual user.

  1. Users have unique specific identity and IDs cannot be shared.
  2. An ID may establish one or more connections and count as a single user.
  3. An ID may only be reassigned for the long-term replacement of personnel, machine, program, or device.

Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner.

  • For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings,this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

IBM Data Management Gold Program Red Brick Analytic Bundle for SMB V8.2 and IBM Data Management Gold Program Red Brick Analytic Bundle for Enterprises V8.2

When you purchase a single license (right to copy), you are authorized to install either Red Brick products or DB2 products, but not both. If you purchase multiple licenses, you may install all Red Brick products, all DB2 products, or a combination of both, up to a maximum of the number of licenses acquired. For example, if you purchase 10 licenses, you may install 10 copies of Red Brick, 10 copies of DB2, or five copies each of Red Brick and DB2.

If you purchase the DB2 media pack, all of the products listed in the offering will be shipped. If you purchase the Red Brick media pack, you will be contacted and the appropriate software version, platform, and language pack will be shipped.

  • DB2 products are subject to the terms and conditions of the IBM license agreement shipped with DB2 products, as well as these additional terms.
  • Red Brick products are subject to the terms and conditions of the Red Brick license agreement shipped with Red Brick products, as well as these additional terms.

Additional terms

Use of the product is subject to the terms and conditions of the products installed, except:

  • DB2 Universal Developer's Edition, which allows up to five individual users per server where the Data Management Gold Red Brick Analytic Bundle for Enterprises is installed. The SMB version of this bundle is limited to one user per server.
  • DB2 Relational Connect, which allows connection to Informix data sources only.

By using, installing, or starting a product, you agree to the applicable terms and conditions for that product, as well as these additional terms.

The limited use only copy of IBM DB2 Information Integrator Standard Edition that is provided with this offering can only be used in conjunction with IBM Red Brick databases to provide access to data held in IBM DB2 Universal Databases, other IBM Red Brick databases, or IBM Informix Extended Parallel Server databases.

Each DB2 Information Integrator Standard Edition Proof of Entitlement (PoE) includes five DB2 Information Integrator Connector PoEs for accessing ODBC sources. Each Connector PoE entitles you to access a single database instance of a Red Brick database or data warehouse, where a "database instance" is a single copy of all the data in the database, or data warehouse, with a catalog to support it. Access to additional database instances or types will require that you purchase a DB2 Information Integrator PoE equal to the number of processors attached to DB2 Information Integrator, and additional DB2 Information Integrator Connector PoEs.

Third-party code

The program contains (and future updates and fix packs to the program may also contain) certain third-party components, which are provided to you under terms and conditions that are different from this agreement, or that required IBM to provide you with certain notices and/or information. For such third-party components, IBM will either identify the third-party components in the program's "README" file (or in an updated "README" file accompanying a fix pack or update), or in a file or files referenced in such "README" files (and shall include any associated license agreement, notices and other related information therein), or the third-party component will contain, or be accompanied by its own license agreement (for example, provided when installing or starting such component, or accompanying such component in a file entitled "README," "COPYING," "LICENSE," or a substantially similar title, or included among the program's paper documentation, if any). Your use of each third-party component that contains, or is accompanied by its own license agreement, or for which IBM has identified a license agreement in one of the above "README" files (or in a file or files referenced therein), will be subject to the terms and conditions of such other license agreements, and not this agreement. By using and not uninstalling such third-party components after the initial installation of such third party components (thereby giving you access to the applicable license agreements, notices, and information), you acknowledge and agree to all such license agreements, notices, and information, including those provided only in the English language. You agree to review any updated "README" file, which accompanies updates or fix packs to the program.

Excluded components

Notwithstanding the terms and conditions of any other agreement you may have with IBM, any of its related or affiliated companies (collectively "IBM"), or with any of the third parties that provide IBM products (Third Parties), the following terms and conditions apply to all "excluded components" identified below: (a) all excluded components are provided on an " as is " basis; (b) IBM and Third Parties disclaim any and all express and implied warranties and conditions including, but not limited to, the warranty of non-infringement or interference and the implied warranties and conditions of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose; (c) IBM and Third Parties will not be liable to you or indemnify you for any claims related to the excluded components; and (d) IBM and Third Parties will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages with respect to the excluded components.

The following are excluded components:

  • quicksort
  • op
  • XML4C 5.0

Installation and technical support is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

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 available on the IBM eServer platform. These services provide the opportunity for 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 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 may result in 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.
