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

Client device or client

A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Enterprise

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

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows terabyte (TB) capacity

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows TB capacity includes primary HSM disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized HSM removable media storage pool. Storage pools are configured on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Capacity notes

  • Capacity does not include:
    • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk.
    • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media.
    • Space used on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server for any purpose other than the primary storage of space-managed data.
    • Disk on the host being space managed.
  • A virtual tape library (VTL) is considered a removable media device, so capacity is based on utilization.
  • The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 TB.
  • Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of TB.
  • Additional capacity must be added in increments of 1 TB.

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 that required Proof of Entitlements (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

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

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.

Terabyte (T/TB)

1 TB of managed storage = 2 to the power of 40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, trillion bytes.

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, 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

IBM Tivoli product licensing documents are available at

http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/licensing.html

Passport Advantage

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

Pricing examples for Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint (Processor Value Unit based)

The following example is provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit based, with the exception of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units 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 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.

Specific definitions related to Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint:

  1. Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint server (same as DocAve server) - Central administrative component for all Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint components. You only need one Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint server per Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint installation.
  2. Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint media server (same as DocAve media server) - Works together with the client to do the backup and data transfer. The client extracts the data from Microsoft SharePoint and sends it to the media server, which sends it to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. In a simple installation, the server and media server could be on the same machine. Multiple media servers on separate machines can be used to provide scalability needed for a large SharePoint environment. Media servers use the Tivoli Storage Manager API to store data in the Tivoli Storage Manager hierarchy of storage.
  3. Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint client (same as DocAve client) - Client software that exploits Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft SQL Server interfaces to extract and store data for backup and recovery. The client communicates with the Tivoli Storage Manager for SharePoint media server to store and retrieve the backup data.

Entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint is required for each Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint client that is being backed up to the Tivoli Storage Manager for Microsoft SharePoint media server.

Pricing examples for Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows

Entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows is based on the terabyte capacity being backed up. Capacity is defined as the primary HSM disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized HSM removable media storage pool. Storage pools are configured on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server. The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 TB. Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of TB. Additional capacity must be added in multiples of 1 TB. Capacity does not include:

  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk
  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media

Scenario 1

A customer wants to space manage 4.25 TB of files from six Microsoft Windows file servers. This means 4.25 TB of files will be migrated from their current location to the Tivoli Storage Manager server's primary HSM storage pools. The migrated files will be replaced with references to the original file. The data in the primary HSM storage pools will be copied for off-site protection to a copy pool. The customer has designated 0.25 TB of disk for an HSM disk storage pool, 4 TB for a HSM removable media storage pool, and 6 TB of removable media for a copy storage pool.

The customer needs to purchase 5 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
| HSM disk       | HSM removable | Capacity       | Required      |
| storage pool   | media storage |                | entitlements  |
|                | pool          |                |               |
|----------------+---------------+----------------+---------------|
| 0.25 TB        | 4 TB          | 4.25 TB        | 5 TB of       |
|                |               |                | Tivoli Storage|
|                |               |                | Manager HSM   |
|                |               |                | for Windows   |
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Scenario 2 (additional capacity)

A customer had purchased 5 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows. Over the last 12 months, the customer consumed the 5 TB of HSM capacity they purchased initially in addition to an additional 1 TB. Over the next 12 months they expect the amount of space managed data will grow to 9 TB total. They will continue to keep the 0.25 TB for the HSM disk storage pool and thus store the remaining 8.75 TB in the removable media storage pool.

The customer should purchase an additional 4 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager HSM for Windows.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
| HSM disk       | HSM removable   | Capacity    | Required       |
| storage pool   | media storage   |             | entitlements   |

|                |                 |             | for Windows    |

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.
