Description

InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7

InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 delivers trusted information to help support efforts to reduce business costs and address risks by:

  • Augmenting historical information from a data warehouse with operational real-time data from production systems. This can help provide a more integrated and accurate view into the enterprise, thereby increasing business visibility.
  • Federating data from disparate source systems and lines of business into a single consolidated view that can provide trusted, unified information and help reduce the cost of maintaining and creating additional physical data stores.
  • Enabling the rapid creation of views to business entities that can be easily queried for business information to provide quicker, actionable insight into the business.

InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 also transparently interfaces with common analytical and reporting tools, development environments, portals, and other standard IT infrastructure components, making it extensible for custom or changing business requirements while allowing you to leverage your existing IT investment.

InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 includes the following main features:

  • Expanded connectivity options: InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 now supports JDBC connections that allow access to a wider range of data sources, some of which only support the JDBC standard.
  • Enhanced request handling for multiple data sources: InfoSphere Federation Server's highly distributed database engine can already handle concurrent requests from multiple data sources. It has been enhanced to support distributed interrupt requests in a transparent and scalable manner, which can help improve performance.
  • Wider scope of optimized data type support: InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 now includes support for Teradata LOBs, DECFLOAT, implicit casting, Oracle VARCHAR2, updated WebSphere MQ and XML user-defined fields and stored procedures, and parameterized TIMESTAMP.
  • Improved federation procedures for Oracle sources: Multiple result sets can now be retrieved from Oracle remote procedures, increasing the transparency of federation procedures as the results are the same as if it were executed directly on the Oracle data source.
  • Usability enhancements: The federation process is simplified in the Version 9.7 release through the automation of table functions that map to result sets of federated stored procedures.

InfoSphere Replication Server V9.7

Replication high availability and active/active scenarios have been improved:

  • Application availability is improved through an enhancement to the initialization protocol for bidirectional and peer-to-peer subscriptions. Application activity is allowed on replicated tables during the initialization of subscriptions.
  • Disaster recovery procedures can be enhanced using the additional runtime data available in replication control tables. This information is highly accessible through standard SQL.

Support of DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows has been enhanced:

  • Tables partitioned by range can now be sources for replication and event publishing. Version 9.7 Q Capture can capture from partitioned tables in DB2 V9.1, or later, databases.
  • Compressed tables can now be sources for replication and event publishing. Data can be captured from DB2 V9.7 databases and replicated to any Q Replication target.
  • Replication of the DB2 Load operation is now allowed.
  • The Replication Center and ASNCLP administration tools can create the latest Q Replication control tables in DB2 V9.1 and V9.5 databases, thereby allowing you to run the latest Q Replication function without having to migrate your DB2 database.
  • Q Apply now allows expressions on XML columns.
  • New and enhanced DB2 data types can now be replicated; for example, Timestamp can be replicated with a precision other than 6.

Usability improvements include:

  • The Replication Center and ASNCLP can now create subscriptions for a large number of tables faster than in previous releases.
  • The configuration of WebSphere MQ has been made easier by the integration of Q Replication's MQ Script Generators into the Replication Center.

Additional enhancements include:

  • For applications that do not need to maximize recovery time in high or continuous availability situations, Replication Server and Data Event Publisher now allow Q Capture to publish nonpersistent MQ messages.
  • Q Apply can be directed to ignore specific queued transactions.
  • The table differencing utility can give you much greater control over what you compare by letting you specify two queries whose result sets will be compared instead of requiring you to compare the full source and target in a subscription.
  • Support for 64-bit WebSphere MQ is provided on 64-bit Windows.
  • Updates to Q Capture for Oracle databases.

InfoSphere Replication Server V9.7 provides replication for low-latency, high-throughput replication with managed conflict detection and resolution to support business continuity, workload distribution, high availability, and active/active requirements.

  • Committed changes are published to WebSphere MQ message queues. A sophisticated apply engine determines transaction dependencies and replays transactions on target systems to maximize parallelism of apply and minimize latency.
  • Conflict detection and resolution algorithms allow backup systems to do productive work so application workload can be distributed across multiple servers.
  • Data can be filtered so only the data of interest is replicated.
  • Automatic and high-performance load options are integrated. Because the work is "parallelized," target data can be loaded at the same time changed data is being replicated.
  • Extensive statistical data is made available for all replication activity. This helps meet the needs of monitoring and service level agreements and is highly accessible through SQL.
  • Utilities are able to compare whole or partial source and target table contents, providing a list of differences that can be used to make modifications to either table.

InfoSphere Data Event Publisher V9.7

InfoSphere Data Event Publisher V9.7 facilitates business integration by linking changed-data events with business processes. Changed-data events are captured and published as WebSphere MQ messages that can be used by other applications and tools to drive subsequent processing. Changed data can be encoded as an XML document or in delimited format such as comma-separated values.

InfoSphere Data Event Publisher V9.7 delivers efficient changed-data solutions for the following types of business scenarios:

  • Application-to-application: Changes to operational customer data can be pushed to a customer relationship management (CRM) application.
  • Business process initiation: Adding a customer record can initiate a new workflow that might include a welcome e-mail, credit verification, and an update to the CRM system.
  • Critical data event monitoring: Changed-data event monitoring allows events such as low inventory levels to be used to initiate related processes such as product restocking.
  • Data population: Data changes in operational systems can be fed to extract, transform, and load (ETL) products that then populate a data warehouse, datamart, or operational data store.

Q Replication Dashboard

The Q Replication Dashboard is a browser-based health and performance monitor that can be downloaded and used with InfoSphere Replication Server V9.7, InfoSphere Data Event Publisher V9.7, and with the older releases of the two products. This tool provides an easy, at-a-glance understanding of replication activity as well as of the health of the replication programs.

  • Linux for IBM System z® systems: A System z server or System z9® server is required.
  • Solaris: Systems with UltraSPARC processors are required.
  • HP-UX: Itanium-based HP Integrity Series systems are required.

Memory requirements

The minimum required memory for InfoSphere Federation Server is 256 MB. To determine the memory requirements for your installation, consider:

  • Other software running on the same server
  • Memory requirements of database clients
  • Performance requirements
  • Size and complexity of your configuration
  • Extent of database activity and the number of clients that access your system
  • Memory required to process the temporary tables and sorts performed by the federation server to avoid using disk input and output

DB2 V9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows is required. (A restricted use license of DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V9.7 is included with InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7.) For current DB2 memory requirements, visit

http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/udb/sysreqs.html

Disk space requirements

The disk space required for InfoSphere Federation Server V9.7 is the sum of the following applicable components:

                 Operating
Operating        system           Relational       Nonrelational

Microsoft        50 to 80 MB      5 to 20 MB       5 to 20 MB
 Windows

Additional disk space requirements include the following:

  • Consider the amount of necessary disk space on the federation server to manage any temporary tables and sorts that exceed the available memory.
  • Disk space requirements vary, depending on your configuration and the type of disk drive that you have. Significantly more disk space may be required on FAT-formatted drives with large cluster sizes than on NTFS-formatted drives.
  • Include the required client software and communication products when calculating the amount of disk space that is needed for your installation.

The hardware requirements of InfoSphere Federation Server may be occasionally updated. To obtain the most current information for supported hardware, visit

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

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

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/ valueunitcalculator/vucalc.wss

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the Proof of Entitlement (PoE). You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User 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.

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

InfoSphere Federation Server is licensed as a multi-product package and includes other IBM products distributed with InfoSphere Federation Server. You are authorized to install and use these other IBM products only in association with your licensed use of InfoSphere Federation Server. Refer to the License Information document for InfoSphere Federation Server for specific usage restrictions for these other IBM products.

Other IBM products that are licensed with InfoSphere Federation Server:

  • DB2 Enterprise Server Edition V9.7
  • WebSphere MQ V7.0.0.1

You will have the opportunity to convert your use entitlements, over time, from the current portfolio and licensing configuration to the new licensing structure. The table below shows a high-level mapping from the previous product structure to the structure included in this announcement. If there is an applicable trade-up charge -- an incremental license fee for moving from one product to another -- that will be indicated in the table.

In some instances, features that were previously separately priced may be embedded in a new offering. Conversions will be designed to give you comparable capacity under the new licensing model as compared with the previous model.
