Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager V1.0 addresses the dynamics that make key lifecycle management a vital initiative. These dynamics include:

  • Improving storage management solutions - Encryption is a critical capability for storage management, and effective key lifecycle management should be a critical control point in a computing infrastructure.
  • Helps reduce the cost of data loss - The costs associated with the loss of data can be significant. Clearly, investment now to develop a data security strategy can help avoid the much higher costs associated with cleaning up after a breach. To get ahead of this data breach risk, encryption and key lifecycle management should be high on customers' priority lists.

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 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 System p® 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 and UNIX®, and Microsoft Windows and Intel technologies, in order to simplify your 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

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Note that authorized users have unique specific identity and IDs cannot be shared. An ID can establish one or more connections and count as a single authorized user. Specific information to security products are:

  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager is any ID that accesses an application or service managed or protected by IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator is one whose identity can be synchronized by IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator or that can access a connected system that can be synchronized by IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Identity Manager is any ID whose identity is recorded in the Tivoli Identity Manager identity store.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business is any ID that accesses an application or service managed or protected by IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Identity and Access Manager is any ID whose identity is recorded in the Tivoli Identity Manager identity store, and/or any ID that accesses an application or service managed or protected by IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-business.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Unified Single Sign-On is any ID that accesses an application or service managed or protected by IBM Tivoli Unified Single Sign-On.
  • An authorized user of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On is any ID that accesses an application or service managed or protected by IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On.
  • Quantities of authorized users of IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, Tivoli Access Manager for e-business, Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On, Tivoli Identity Manager, Tivoli Identity and Access Manager, and Tivoli Unified Single Sign-On Manager will only include users that have usable accounts. If their accounts have been made unusable, then those users do not have to count against the quantities of users that need to be licensed. Such accounts must remain unusable for a minimum of six months in order to not count against the quantities of users that need to be licensed.

Engine

An engine is also referred to as a central processor (CP) or processor. Engines for traditional workloads are called General Purpose CPs. Engines for Linux workloads are called Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines or Linux-only engines. Engines for Coupling Facility workloads are called Integrated Coupling Facility (ICF) engines.

Enterprise: An enterprise is a person or single entity and those subsidiaries with more than 50 percent ownership.

External user: An authorized user who is not part of the enterprise.

Internal User: An authorized user that is part of the enterprise.

IBM Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL)

This optional facility enables additional processing capacity exclusively for Linux workload, with no effect on the model designation of a System z or OS/390® server. Consequently, executing Linux workload on the IBM IFL will not, in most cases, result in any increased IBM software charges for z/OS, OS/390, VM, VSE, or TPF operating systems and applications. There is, as indicated, a charge associated with the IFL, and there may also be a charge for applications which run on the IFL.

The IFL may be dedicated to a single Linux-mode logical partition or it may be shared by multiple Linux-mode logical partitions. Installations should note that the Linux workspace enabled by this facility will not support any of the traditional S/390® operating systems (OS/390, TPF, VSE, or VM). Only Linux applications or Linux operating in conjunction with the Virtual Image Facility, an environment that operates within a logical partition or in native S/390 mode and provides the capability to create multiple Linux images, are supported by IBM S/390 IFL.

Managed processor (charging under full capacity in the managed environment)

Managed processor charges are based on the active processors on the machines in the computing environment affiliated with the program rather than on the server where the program is run. The managed processors which require PoEs are defined in the License Information's program-unique terms.

Notes:

  1. 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.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore 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.
  3. The program may not run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the program's valuation method.
  4. In the System z 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 blades with which the program is affiliated.
  7. 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
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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.

Processor (per processor charging under full capacity)

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.

Notes:

  1. 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.
  2. Multicore technology allows two or more processors (commonly called cores) to be active on a single silicon chip. With multicore 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.
  3. In the System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  4. Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  5. 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.
  6. When a server is shipped with six processors, but two of them are inactive, four processors are active for the customer.
  7. 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
    http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

A resource is the measurement for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of the specific designated measurement used for a given program. A Resource Value Unit is a pricing charge metric of IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, which uses a managed-environment approach whereby price is determined by what is managed. Whenever the designated measurement is a resource, not all resources require the same number of Resource Value Units (or RVUs). RVU schedules are located in the Pricing examples section.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices over a network. A PoE must be obtained for each server on which the program or a component of the program is run or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In 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 other license or entitlements 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 entitlements 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), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

Tivoli Management Points

A Tivoli Management Point is a metric used to compute license quantities and is program specific.

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, resources, 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 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

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

User Value Units

A User 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. Refer to Value Units definition. Users is a descriptive of one of the Value Unit charge metrics.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the value unit table on the following Web site

http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/ wdocs/pvu_table_for_customers

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of Value Units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Passport Advantage for the distributed products

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the Entitled Passport Advantage discount.

To determine the required IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.

Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:

  1. Analyze your environment to determine the number of charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine by that analysis.
  2. Order the Passport Advantage part numbers. A Passport Advantage point value, which is the same worldwide for a specific part number regardless of where the order is placed, is assigned to each IBM Tivoli product part number. The Passport Advantage point value for the applicable part number, multiplied by the quantity for that part number, will determine the Passport Advantage points for that IBM Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable IBM Tivoli product authorizations which then may be aggregated with the point value of other applicable Passport Advantage product acquisitions to determine the total Passport Advantage points value.

The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.

Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.

For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Maintenance 12 Months - This is the product authorization with maintenance to the first anniversary date.
  • Annual Software Maintenance Renewal - This is the maintenance renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
  • Software Maintenance Reinstatement 12 months - This is for customers who have allowed their Software Maintenance to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Maintenance.
  • Media packs - These are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.

Distributed pricing examples

The following examples are provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Processor Value Unit based (PVU). Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Processor Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of PVUs required per processor will depend on the processor type. For more information, refer to the Value Unit definition in IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions. To determine the number of Processor Value Unit entitlements required per processor, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

References to all other non-processor-based metrics do represent the actual number of entitlements required, unless other designated measurements are referenced or unless otherwise specified.

The pricing examples below should be used to determine required license entitlements for IBM Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager. In almost all cases, it will require both Processor Value Unit entitlements and Resource Value Unit entitlements to cover the base install of Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager, and the total resources managed. In this case the resources to enter into the volume tiering table are the total number of tape drives, and total terabytes of disk being managed for storage by Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager. Each base install of Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager comes with an entitlement to manage two resources. Only the total incremental resources, over and above the two entitled resources allowed for each entitled processor, are entered into the volume tiering table to calculate Resource Value Units to order.

Resource Value Units are calculated based upon the following volume tiering table and are rounded up to the next whole number.

Cumulative usage level              Value Units per Resource
 
   1 - 12   Resources               1 RVU/Resource
  13 - 32   Resources               0.8455 RVUs/Resource
  33 - 64   Resources               0.6137 RVUs/Resource
  65 - 100  Resources               0.4639 RVUs/Resource
 101 - 250  Resources               0.3870 RVUs/Resource
       251+ Resources               0.3097 RVUs/Resource

Products may also have program-specific licensing terms, which are described later in this document. Consult the program- specific licensing terms to determine total licensing requirements for the applicable products.

Distributed pricing scenario for Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager

Transaction 1

Assume customer ABC is setting up their own IT storage environment for both disk and tape drives. In Phase 1, they plan to install the base Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager product on two 2-way servers (four single core processors). Each install of the base product comes with an entitlement to manage two resources For this example, customer ABC has entitlement to manage eight resources, two for each of the four processors. Customer ABC will start off with one of the 2-way servers supporting an additional 48 terabytes of data storage for each of its 2 processors (a total of 96 additional terabytes). The other 2-way server will start off supporting an additional 64 tape drives with 1 of the processors, and 28 tape drives with the other processor (a total of 92 tape drives). The total incremental resources are added together to get the total resources to charge for and enter into the volume tiering table to get Resource Value Units to order. In this case, the 96 storage disk resources (terabytes), and the 92 tape drive resources add up to 188 chargeable resources. (Note: The 8 entitled resources, two for each of the processors, were not part of the calculation.)

Processor Value Units (PVUs) required

Customer ABC has the following configuration in their environment:

  • Two 2-way servers running Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager management and runtime servers

They are required to purchase Processor Value Units to entitle base Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager entitlements for each of the four processors as identified in the following table:

Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager - PVUs

Tivoli Key          Quantity in customer            Total processors  
Lifecycle Manager   environment                     requiring PVUs    
 
2-way               2                               4          
 
Total processors for calculating PVUs to order      4*         

*The customer must purchase Resource Value Unit entitlements for the incremental resources managed (incremental to the two no-charge resources per processor).

For more information on Processor Value Units (PVUs), access the following

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_ licensing_for_customers.html

Resource Value Units required

Customer ABC is starting off with 96 incremental storage disk resources (terabytes), and the 92 incremental tape drive resources. These are added together to give 188 incremental chargeable resources to enter into the Resource Value Unit volume tiering table to determine Resource Value Units to order. (Note: The eight no-charge resources, two for each of the processors that are entitled, were not part of the calculation.)

Total Resource Value Units to order to entitle ABC's environment for the 190 incremental resources are determined as follows:

Resource                       Total           Resource Value     Resource
Value Unit                     resources       Units per          Value Units
metric                         (A)             resource (B)       required
 
Tier 1 (1-12 resources)         12             1.0000             12.0000
Tier 2 (13-32 resources)        20              .8455             16.9100
Tier 3 (33-64 resources)        32              .6137             19.6384
Tier 4 (65-100 resources)       36              .4639             16.7004
Tier 5 (101-250 resources)      88              .3870             34.0560
Tier 6 (251+ resources)         -               .3097              0.0000
 
              Total resources  188             Total RVUs         99.3048
          Total Resource Value Units to order (rounded up)       100

Customer ABC would order 100 Resource Value Units to entitle their environment for the 188 incremental resources (tape and disk storage drives) that they are starting with (in addition to the PVUs to entitle the 4 processors above).

Transaction 2

In Phase 2, customer ABC looks to increase the resources supported by the four processors that they have already entitled. They will add another incremental 64 tape drives and another 100 incremental terabytes of disk storage (164 total incremental resources). The new total of resources in the ABC's environment would be the previous 188 plus 164 incremental for a new total of 352 resources. The new total of Resource Value Units required to entitle their environment would be calculated as follows:

Resource                       Total          Resource Value Resource
Value Unit                     resources      Units per      Value Units
metric                         (A)            resource (B)   required
 
Tier 1 (1-12 resources)         12            1.0000         12.0000
Tier 2 (13-32 resources)        20             .8455         16.9100
Tier 3 (33-64 resources)        32             .6137         19.6384
Tier 4 (65-100 resources)       36             .4639         16.7004
Tier 5 (101-250 resources)     150             .3870         58.0500
Tier 6 (251+ resources)        102             .3097         31.5894
 
          New total resources  352 New total RVUs required  154.8882
Total RVUs required to entitle new environment (rounded up) 155.0
 Previous/existing RVU entitlements from first transaction (100.0)
                       Total Resource Value Units to order   55.0

Customer ABC would need to order an additional 55 Resource Value Units to entitle their new total of 352 resources. No additional PVUs were required as ABC set up their environment to handle the incremental resources in Phase 1 when they entitled their environment for the two 2-way servers.

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as 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 Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You 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. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that 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 you.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used 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 Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
