Description
Bottom rule

When IBM Informix Warehouse V11.50 is combined with Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) industry leading replication capabilities, you will be able to capture trusted information in real-time, helping to extend information assets to enable more timely actionable business decisions to optimize your business. With IDS V11.50, you will be able to utilize the enhancements to XML documents search in Basic Text Search and enhancements to the Excalibur Text Search for text analytics. The IDS Open Admin Tool (OAT) provides you the capability to remotely monitor and manage IDS data servers worldwide and to drill down and analyze query performance and resources consumption from virtually anywhere in the world.

IBM Informix Warehouse V11.50 is available in two offerings.

  • Informix Warehouse Enterprise Edition includes IDS Enterprise Edition, the IBM IDS Storage Optimization Feature for Enterprise Edition, and the Informix Warehouse Feature for Enterprise Edition for integrated warehouse tooling.
  • Informix Warehouse Workgroup Edition includes IDS Workgroup Edition and the Informix Warehouse Feature.

The Informix Warehouse Feature is available separately if you already have either the IDS Enterprise or Workgroup Edition licenses for warehouse processing and want to add the Informix Warehouse Feature for integrated warehouse tooling.

For information about IBM Informix Warehouse Feature V11.50, refer to Software Announcement 209-041, dated March 03, 2009.

IBM IDS V11.50xC4 Enterprise Edition offers you the opportunity to reduce your storage costs while improving your query performance with the new optional IDS Storage Optimization Feature for Enterprise Edition. You can select which tables and fragments to compress to address your business needs. In addition, the Storage Optimization Feature helps enhance disk space management with functions to repack rows for storage optimization and to truncate empty extents at the end of a table to release unused space. The compressed data and optimized storage could help reduce the number of disk I/Os and improve efficiency of memory buffer pools usage, resulting in faster query processing and response time.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Concurrent User is a shared user access to the program within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed only on one computer or one server. The total number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program at any moment in time may not exceed the highest number of Concurrent Users authorized by the PoE. You must have an entitlement for each Concurrent User simultaneously accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Authorized User

You must acquire a separate Authorized User license entitlement for each Authorized User of the program installed on each individual server.

An Authorized User is one and only one individual with a specific identity within or outside your enterprise. A PoE is required for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component on a single server either directly or indirectly through any means. An example of indirect access would be through a multiplexing program, client device, or application server. For a single Authorized User to access the program on more than one server, additional PoEs must be acquired and each PoE must be based on the charge metric associated with the program being accessed.

The program can be accessed by multiple Authorized Users provided that an Authorized User license entitlement has been obtained for each individual. An Authorized User's ID is unique to the uniquely identified individual and cannot be shared with or used by others or transferred. A single Authorized User ID, however, is entitled to establish one or more connections to the program (but only on a single server for each entitlement), each for use solely by the identified Authorized User, and only the single Authorized User entitlement is required. If an Authorized User makes connections to other IDS data servers (or to this program residing on a separate server), additional PoEs must be acquired for those connections using the charge metric for those other IDS data servers or for the other program.

Each separate individual that uses a connection, directly or indirectly, made to this program through the intranet (connections from within your enterprise) or through the Internet (connection from outside your enterprise) must be counted as a separate Authorized User and a separate entitlement must be acquired for such Authorized User.

The following minimum Authorized User requirement applies to licenses to the Informix Warehouse Enterprise Edition V11.50 and Informix Warehouse Feature for Enterprise Edition V11.50: The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least ten Authorized Users per server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of Authorized Users accessing the program.

Concurrent Session

A Concurrent Session is a) a logical connection made between the program (residing on a single Server) and a client device and b) except as indicated below, each logical connection made between an instance of the Administration Console component of a program and an IDS instance of a program or any separately acquired IDS V11.50 program. Each such connection is counted as a Concurrent Session whether or not it is actually in use and regardless of the duration of the connection or periods of activity. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate Concurrent Session, even if they share a common physical pathway. From the day you began using the program, the highest number of connections ever established at any time for each copy (for example, instance) of the program on each server will be counted for purposes of determining the total Concurrent Session entitlements required. You must acquire entitlements for the greatest number of logical connections ever established at any time for all program instances on each server, including (except as indicated below) each logical connection made between an instance of the Administration Console component of a program and an IDS instance of a program or any separately acquired IDS V11.50 program. Refer to the example below.

The Informix Warehouse Feature includes the Informix Warehouse Administration Console components. The following applies to the Informix Warehouse Feature for Workgroup and Enterprise Editions.

When a SQL Warehouse run request is issued from an instance of the Administration Console, it may create a number of parallel logical connections to an instance of IDS. While each original connection between an Administration Console instance and an IDS instance is counted as a Concurrent Session for which a PoE entitlement must be acquired, additional parallel connections created in conjunction with such SQL Warehouse

Each logical connection made between a client device and a copy of the program residing on a server is counted as a Concurrent Session for which an entitlement is required. For example, if copies of the program reside on two different servers and a single client device is connected to the program on both servers, then two Concurrent Sessions have been established and a PoE must be acquired for each of them. As a further example, if four copies of the program reside on two different servers and a single client device is connected to each of the four instances of the program, then four Concurrent Sessions have been established and a PoE must be acquired for each of them. As a further example, if four copies of the IDS component of a Program reside on 2 different servers and a single client device is connected to each of the 4 instances of the IDS component, and 2 Administration Console instances (1 on each server) are connected to each of 4 instances of the IDS component, then 12 Concurrent Sessions (4 total from the client device and 8 total from the Administration Console) have been established and a PoE must be acquired for each of them.

Each logical connection from a client device made, directly or indirectly, to this program (residing on a single server), through the intranet (connections from within your enterprise) or through the Internet (connections from outside your enterprise) is counted as a separate Concurrent Session and a separate PoE must be acquired for such Concurrent Session.

A PoE is required for each Concurrent Session established to access the program or any program component either directly or indirectly through any means. An example of indirect access would be through a multiplexing program, client device, or application server. The number of connections is not reduced by any program, client device, or machine, such as a front-end server, application server, or multiplexer, which may be used to connect, manage, or concentrate the logical connections.

For example, if you install one or more copies (for example, instances) of the program on each of 3 servers and from the day you begin using the program, the greatest number of Concurrent Sessions ever established on the total program instances (including applicable Administration Console instance to IDS instance connections as specified above) on Server 1 was 12, on Server 2 was 70, and on Server 3 was 89, then you must acquire, and pay for, PoE entitlements for 171 Concurrent Sessions, even if the number of your logical connections decreases over time (for example, logical connections are reduced to the following: Server 1: 12; Server 2: 56; Server 3: 80). Of course, you may subsequently again increase your total number of logical connections to 171 without needing to acquire additional Concurrent Session entitlements; provided that you do not increase the total number of logical connections, including logical connections made between an instance of the Administration Console component of a program and an IDS instance of a program or any separately acquired IDS V11.50 program on any one of the servers beyond the highest number of applicable logical connections ever previously established on that server. In this example, you could again increase the logical connections on Server 2 up to 70, and could increase the logical connections on Server 3 up to 89, without needing to acquire additional Concurrent Session entitlements. To be clear, if you did increase the total number of logical connections on Server 2 up to 70, you could change the combination of such logical connections that were originally acquired without needing to acquire additional entitlements (for example, if you originally had entitlements for 50 connections between client devices and the program and 20 Administration Console instance connections to IDS instances, then you could instead implement 60 connections between client devices and the program and 10 Administration Console instance connections to IDS instances). However, if you increased the number of logical connections on Server 1 to 25, even though the number of logical connections on Servers 2 and 3 remained at 56 and 80, respectively, you would need to acquire an additional 13 Concurrent Session entitlements for Server 1 (bringing your total entitlements to 184). Concurrent Sessions are not equivalent to concurrent users.

Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered to be a Concurrent Session. You must acquire a separate Concurrent Session license entitlement for each Concurrent Session as described above.

Each logical connection from a client device made, directly or indirectly, to this program (residing on a single server), through the intranet (connections from within your enterprise) or through the Internet (connections from outside your enterprise) is counted as a separate Concurrent Session and a separate entitlement (PoE) must be acquired for such Concurrent Session.

The following minimum Concurrent Sessions requirement applies to licenses to the Informix Warehouse Enterprise Edition V11.50 and Informix Warehouse Feature for Enterprise Edition V11.5:

  • The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least ten Concurrent Sessions per server on which the program is installed or (b) the total number of Concurrent Sessions accessing the program.

The following minimum Concurrent Sessions requirement applies to licenses to the Informix Warehouse Workgroup Edition V11.50 and Informix Warehouse Feature for Workgroup Edition V11.50:

  • The program must be licensed for, and PoE acquired for, the greater of (a) at least 10 Concurrent Sessions per server on which you install the program; or, (b) the total number of Concurrent Sessions accessing the program.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

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. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information 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 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 programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

For programs acquired under any of IBM's 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

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

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.
