Description
Bottom rule

The IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse is a comprehensive data warehousing solution comprised of scalable and fully-integrated system components of the InfoSphere Warehouse-based software, IBM systems, and storage technology. It is pretested and preconfigured to support optimal performance.

  • Delivers more potential for value than traditional data warehouses by simplifying and expanding the scope of what a data warehouse can deliver, helping clients to realize value sooner in the deployment cycle, reduce the total cost of ownership over time, and increase the reliability of data systems. The solution also helps IT organizations to be more responsive to the business and enables end users to make better decisions in real time.
  • Enables clients to customize and optimize the database, server, and storage stack, taking advantage of ultra fast deployments and helps them to a faster time to value through extensive pretesting and preconfiguration.
  • Allows clients to buy only what they need today, and predict and purchase additional components in the future in a prescribed fashion. Based on nonproprietary, readily available hardware, IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse solutions can be easily reused and redeployed within an organization according to changing business needs. They are simple to use, and they scale easily as your business grows, thus helping to reduce hidden costs related to training, maintenance, and growth.

The newly enhanced IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C3000, C4000, and D5100 models offer out-of-the-box ready-to-go solutions which address a range of requirements. The IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C3000 and C4000 solutions are designed to simplify deployment and jump start smaller warehousing and departmental reporting implementations.

IBM System x® M2 Servers power InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C3000, C4000, and D5100

With this update, the IBM InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C3000, C4000, and D5100 are now powered by IBM System x M2 servers with Intel Nehalem processors. The IBM System x M2 offers robust, proven technology and a flexible, energy-smart design. Delivering quad-core computing on Intel Xeon® 5500 Series processors with QuickPath Interconnect technology, this powerful 2U server delivers significant performance improvement per watt compared to previous generation servers by integrating low-wattage components for an energy-smart thermal profile. The Intel Xeon 5550 Series processors can double computing capabilities of previous generation 2-socket servers.

Standby servers and remote standby servers

Also with this update the ability to create an idle standby environment for disaster recovery purposes is introduced into the InfoSphere Balanced Warehouse C4000 and D5100. By making available the capability to create a standby environment should the primary environment become unavailable the standby servers at the local or remote site can pickup and take over the workload.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

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.

Warranty

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.
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.
