|Table of contents||Document options|
IBM® Mashup Accelerator with Portal Server V6.1.5 further empowers portal users to contribute to, as well as manage, portal content and presentation.
IBM Mashup Accelerator enables you to use mashups directly in WebSphere® Portal, providing greater flexibility and increased value. IBM Mashup Accelerator is an easy-to-use business mashup platform, supporting line-of-business assembly of dynamic situational applications -- with the management, security, and governance capabilities IT requires. IBM Mashup Accelerator is a streamlined integration of IBM Mashup Center V2.0 with WebSphere Portal V6.1.5 that helps organizations empower business users to increase their effectiveness, and deliver new applications and capabilities in minutes, hours, and days, instead of months.
With IBM Mashup Accelerator, it is possible to use mashups, widgets, and feeds from Mashup Center in Portal pages -- helping organizations reduce application backlog and lower costs and development time with a single integrated platform for portal and mashups. It lets organizations quickly assemble mashups, try them out and customize them, then deploy them through WebSphere Portal, acting as an incubator for new Portal applications. It can also be used to create widgets that can be deployed in Mashup Center or WebSphere Portal, and support creation of mashups from inside the WebSphere Portal environment.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)
Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which this software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table1 by processor vendor, brand, type, and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:
- For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table1.
- Add the PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
- Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.
PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.
Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity1 terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated2 physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to or managed by the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.
- For information regarding PVU and sub-capacity licensing, including the latest PVU table, visit
- Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available
for use in a server. They include processor cores:
- That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
- That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
- Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through Virtualization technologies, operating system commands, and BIOS settings

|IBM Electronic Services|
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.
