Overview
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller V4.3.1 is now available with pricing based upon a new charge unit per the number of physical disk drives managed by the SAN Volume Controller (SVC). This offering has a new product ID (5639-VW1), with new associated Software Maintenance product IDs, new AAS orderable features, and new Passport Advantage® part numbers. The current product per-terabyte pricing structure, available as 5639-VC4, will remain available for ordering. IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition Software V4 (5639-VW1) is supported only on the new IBM 2145-8A4 SAN Volume Controller Storage Engine.

If your storage configuration to be managed by the SAN Volume Controller is made up of 60 or fewer physical disk drives, you can order SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition (5639-VW1) software using these new product features or Passport Advantage part numbers. This new feature and pricing structure is described further in the Ordering information section.

The new 5639-VW1 features or part numbers are available for new orders. For customers who purchase 5639-VW1, and who later need to increase their managed storage to greater than 60 drives, IBM offers a conversion path that provides the ability to convert 5639-VW1 Virtualization, FlashCopy®, and Metro/Global Mirror authorizations to the appropriate 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte) licenses. There is no reverse conversion path from 5639-VC4 to 5639-VW1. Refer to the Ordering information and Description sections.

Existing SVC V4.3 functions and additional functions, included in SVC V4.3.1, are generally available to customers ordering either 5639-VC4 or the 5639-VW1.

SVC interoperability now provides new storage support including the IBM XIV Storage System, IBM System Storage DS5000, HP StorageWorks XP24000/XP20000, and Hitachi Universal Storage Platform. Interoperability is also available for IBM i operating system 6.1 through VIOS, and IBM z/VSE™.

For all the specific models and host environments supported, visit

http://www.ibm.com/storage/support/2145

SVC V4.3.1 software is now available at initial order with two, four, and five year software maintenance registration agreements. These three new maintenance options can be used only for initial order placement. Software maintenance renewal options continue to be offered for one or three years.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition V4 supports all of the functions and interoperability announced to date for SAN Volume Controller Software V4.

The new SAN Volume Controller (SVC) Entry Edition product ID makes available new associated AAS Software Maintenance PIDs and orderable features, new Passport Advantage part numbers, and revised terms and conditions, based upon a new per-disk-drive charge unit, for storage configurations up to 60 disk drives. This new per-disk-drive price offering does not replace the current SAN Volume Controller 5639-VC4 software with the per-terabyte charge unit. This new feature and pricing structure is described in the Ordering information section of this announcement.

Entry Edition FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror functions are ordered in quantities that equal the number of disk storage drives to be managed by SVC Entry Edition software, up to 60 drives. The quantity of drives ordered for these functions must match the Base Virtualization drive quantity ordered. When adding more drives to an existing cluster licensed with Entry Edition (5639-VW1), additional authorizations for Base Virtualization and for any other licensed functions (such as FlashCopy) must be ordered, so that license authorizations for all functions in use remain matched with the drive quantity being managed by SVC.

Metro/Global Mirror configurations with target volumes on a separate cluster must have corresponding authorizations for Metro/Global Mirror on the target cluster. The clusters in the Metro/Global Mirror relationship may be running any combination of the 5639-VW1 (per-disk-drive) and the 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte) Metro/Global Mirror authorizations at the source and target clusters, and the size or quantity of those licenses do not necessarily need to match. For example, you may remotely copy volumes from a 5639-VW1 cluster with 60 drives that is Metro/Global Mirror authorized to an authorized cluster licensed for 40 drives, or you may remotely copy them to an authorized cluster that has Metro/Global Mirror authorizations available for the corresponding capacity of those volumes.

Added interoperability

IBM SAN Volume Controller now supports many more customer heterogeneous data center environments with the addition of interoperability support for:

  • IBM i operating system 6.1 (i5/OS® V6R1) via IBM PowerVM™ Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) 1.5.2 and 2.1
  • IBM z/VSE V4.2
  • IBM PowerVM VIOS attachment with a Linux® client
  • Microsoft® Hyper-V with Windows® Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003
  • IBM System Storage TS7650G ProtecTIER De-duplication Gateway
  • IBM XIV Storage System
  • IBM System Storage DS5000
  • Hewlett-Packard StorageWorks XP24000/XP20000
  • Hewlett-Packard StorageWorks 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array
  • Hitachi Universal Storage Platform V and VM

SVC Console

The System Storage Productivity Center, which includes the SVC Console software, continues to be supported on Microsoft Windows 2003. IBM will discontinue support of the SVC Console software on Microsoft Windows 2000 after February 20, 2009.

Space-efficient VDisks as Remote Mirror Targets

SAN Volume Controller Software V4.3.1 enhances the space-efficient VDisk function by maintaining the target VDisk as space-efficient when establishing a Metro Mirror or Global Mirror relationship. Unallocated space is compressed on the inter-cluster link, and does not cause space to be allocated at the target.

Network Time Protocol (NTP)

The SAN Volume Controller Software V4.3.1 (including Entry Edition) now supports the Network Time Protocol (NTP). NTP is a protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a network. Customers now can synchronize the SAN Volume Controller cluster time with a NTP server on the network.

Conversion from 5639-VW1 to 5639-VC4 software licenses

For customers who purchase the SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition (5639-VW1), and who later need to increase their managed storage to greater than the maximum number of managed drives allowed by the 5639-VW1 license, IBM offers a conversion path to the SVC 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte charge unit) software. When converting a SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition 5639-VW1 cluster with licenses that may include Base Virtualization, FlashCopy, and Metro/Global Mirror, all the authorizations pertaining to that cluster must be converted to the appropriate 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte) licenses.

Conversion is a three stage process. First, the existing license for 5639-VW1 must be upgraded to the maximum supported drives (that is, 60 drives) for Base Virtualization, and also FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror if those functions are licensed.

Next, the SVC license entitlement will be moved from SVC Entry Edition (5639-VW1) to a predetermined capacity amount in 5639-VC4 per TB pricing. For Base Virtualization, the entitlement is 12 TB; for FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror (if licensed), the entitlements are 3 TB and 4 TB respectively.

Finally, the new 5639-VC4 license may be upgraded further to meet the customer's requirements.

For example, a customer has SVC Entry Edition (5639-VW1) licensed for 48 drives of Base Virtualization and FlashCopy. They want to expand their overall SVC capacity to 40 TB of Base Virtualization and 15 TB of FlashCopy. First, the customer would purchase quantity 12 of the SVC Entry Edition Base Virtualization per Disk Drive license and quantity 12 of the SVC Entry Edition FlashCopy per Disk Drive license to increase both to the maximum 60 drives, which is the conversion point. The conversion to SVC per-terabyte licensing would entitle the customer to 12 TB of Base Virtualization capacity and 3 TB of FlashCopy capacity. Finally, the customer would purchase the additional 28 TB of SVC Base Virtualization capacity starting with terabyte number 13 in tier 2 and the additional 12 TB of SVC FlashCopy capacity starting at terabyte number 4 in tier 1.

There is no reverse path to convert from 5639-VC4 to 5639-VW1.

Order Base Virtualizaton with quantity equal to the number of disk drives to be managed by SVC Entry Edition software, up to 60 drives.

Order optional Entry Edition FlashCopy and Metro Global Mirror function authorizations in the quantities that equal the number of disk storage drives to be managed by SVC Entry Edition software, up to 60 drives. The quantity of drive authorizations ordered for these functions must match the Base Virtualization drive authorization quantity ordered.

When adding more drives to an existing cluster licensed with the Entry Edition (5639-VW1) license, additional drive authorizations must be ordered for the Base Virtualization and equally as well for any optional licensed functions in use, so that optional functions in use remain matched to Base Virtualization in drive quantities authorized.

Metro/Global Mirror configurations with target volumes on a separate cluster must have corresponding authorizations for Metro/Global Mirror on the target cluster. The clusters in the Metro/Global Mirror relationship may be running any combination of the 5639-VW1 (per-disk drive) and the 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte) Metro/Global Mirror authorizations at the source and target clusters, and the size or quantity of those licenses do not necessarily need to match. For example, you may remote copy volumes from a 5639-VW1 cluster with 60 drives that is Metro/Global Mirror authorized to an authorized cluster licensed for 40 drives, or you may remote copy them to an authorized cluster that has Metro/Global Mirror authorizations available for the corresponding capacity of those volumes.

The System Storage SAN Volume Controller manages the Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs) of the attached disk subsystem. When calculating price based on the per-disk drive metric, count the drives associated with the LUNs managed by SVC. The count should contain all drives managed by SVC including LUNs that are striped across multiple disk drives such as in RAID configurations. Backup disk drives that are not actively running I/O operations until another disk drive fails (frequently referred to as "hot spares") need not be included in the disk drive count.

Conversion from 5639-VW1 to 5639-VC4 software licenses

For customers who purchase the SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition (5639-VW1), and who later need to increase their managed storage to greater than the maximum number of managed drives allowed by the 5639-VW1 license, IBM offers a conversion path to the SVC 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte charge unit) software. When converting a SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition 5639-VW1 cluster with licenses that may include Base Virtualization, FlashCopy, and Metro/Global Mirror, all the authorizations pertaining to that cluster must be converted to the appropriate 5639-VC4 (per-terabyte) license(s).

Conversion is a three stage process. First, the existing license for 5639-VW1 must be upgraded to the maximum supported drives (that is, 60 drives) for Base Virtualization, and also FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror if those functions are licensed.

Next, the SVC license entitlement will be moved from SVC Entry Edition (5639-VW1) to a predetermined capacity amount in 5639-VC4 per-terabyte pricing. For Base Virtualization, the entitlement is 12 TB; for FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror (if licensed), the entitlements are 3 TB and 4 TB respectively.

Finally, the new 5639-VC4 license may be upgraded further to meet the customer's requirements.

For example, a customer has SVC Entry Edition (5639-VW1) licensed for 48 drives with Base Virtualization and FlashCopy. They want to expand their overall SVC capacity to 40 TB of Base Virtualization and 15 TB of FlashCopy. First, the customer would purchase quantity 12 of the SVC Entry Edition Base Virtualization per Disk Drive license and quantity 12 of the SVC Entry Edition FlashCopy per Disk Drive license to increase both to the maximum 60 drives, which is the conversion point. The conversion to SVC per-terabyte licensing would entitle the customer to 12 TB of Base Virtualization capacity and 3 TB of FlashCopy capacity. Finally, the customer would purchase the additional 28 TB of SVC Base Virtualization capacity starting with terabyte number 13 in tier 2 and the additional 12 TB of SVC FlashCopy capacity starting at terabyte number 4 in tier 1.

There is no reverse path to convert from 5639-VC4 to 5639-VW1.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and PoE govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. The paid invoice acts as PoE for all orders of IBM SAN Volume Controller Software V4. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (GI19-0246) agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures.

License Information form number
LC23-5059: License Information for IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Software V4.3.1
LC23-5058: License information for IBM CIM Agent and Console for System Storage SAN Volume Controller V4.3.1

On or near the planned availability date, the current License Information documents will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

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://techsupport.services.ibm.com/guides/handbook.html

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 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. 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 (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) 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.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

You may not copy and use this program on another computer.

Other terms

No

IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement
Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage Web site at

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

Yes. This program (5639-VW1) is licensed on a per-disk drive basis, with a maximum of 60 managed disk drives allowed per SAN Volume Controller cluster. (Refer to the Ordering information section for information on charges for this program.) Users may only install this program on IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller 2145-8A4 Storage Engine, or subsequent IBM replacements of this.

Customers are licensed to use this program (5639-VW1) only to manage storage capacity within a single cluster, and only for the amount of storage capacity within that cluster for which they have received proper authorization from IBM. Customers must obtain a separate license for each cluster on which SAN Volume Controller Entry Edition Software V4 (5639-VW1) is installed.

A customer's right to use the IBM FlashCopy for SAN Volume Controller and Metro/Global Mirror for SAN Volume Controller features of this program (5639-VW1) is also limited to the amount of authorizations obtained from IBM. The authorizations for FlashCopy and for Metro/Global Mirror must match the disk quantity authorized for Base Virtualization on the cluster. Note that 5639-VC4 enables sub-capacity licensing for FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror features. Additionally, license authorizations for the FlashCopy feature is based on source data only.

Use of Metro/Global Mirror features requires license authorizations for both the Metro/Global Mirror source and target capacities in use. Use of the Metro/Global Mirror feature between clusters located in different sites requires separate authorization for each site.

This program is only supported for use with host servers, storage subsystems, and SAN configurations identified by IBM as being supported for attachment to the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller. This program is provided together with code under separate license agreements, including, but not limited to, open source license agreements.

Software Maintenance applies

Yes. Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this announcement is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice or electronic access into the 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.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/guides/handbook.html

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
