IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 delivers enhancements to help you achieve increasingly demanding recovery point, recovery time, and business continuity objectives for Linux® servers and applications.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 combines a number of leading-edge and patented technologies to deliver a data protection and recovery solution for servers and applications, whether they reside in the enterprise data center, at remote branch offices, or at small businesses. It helps eliminate the need for traditional backup windows by continuously tracking data changes at the block level, with extremely low overhead on the systems it protects. Its flexible policy engine can help you improve recovery service levels and meet stringent data protection and retention requirements.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 extends platform coverage to include Linux to help you meet stringent recovery time objectives and business continuity requirements for Linux servers and applications on Linux. Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback V6.1 support for Linux enables the storage administrator to take frequent and very efficient low-impact, block-level incremental snapshots. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 supports the rapid recovery of full snapshot images and individual file or directories from a snapshot image. Using Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1, it is fast and easy to extract files or application objects from the stored data blocks of any stored snapshot.

With Tivoli Storage FastBack V6.1 Linux support, you can mount a snapshot virtually to a mount point, allowing validation of the backup data as well as file-level and directory-level restore. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 is a software-based solution and does not rely on any particular hardware to enable snapshots. It can enable LAN-based and SAN-based backup of Linux servers and applications that run on Linux servers. With SAN backup, the impact of backups can be removed from the LAN. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 is designed to read and write data directly from a SAN (bypassing the server that is being protected), offering a server-free and network-free backup capability.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 support for the Linux environment delivers:

  • Volume-level recovery from a snapshot
  • The ability to quickly mount a snapshot to help restore individual files, directories, and application objects
  • Out-of-the-box scripted application quiescing support for Oracle, IBM DB2®, and Lotus® Domino® running on Linux
  • FastBack server data deduplication

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 can provide significant data reduction through a block-level, incremental backup model that dramatically helps reduce the amount of backup data. It takes data reduction to an even higher level by introducing built-in data deduplication on the FastBack server.

Key benefits of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 data deduplication:

  • Helps reduce FastBack server storage requirements
  • Requires no dependency on specific hardware because it is an integrated component of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1
  • Helps minimize impact to backup duration through post-ingestion (out-of-band) deduplication processing on the Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server
  • Applies to almost all types of stored data
  • Delivers transparent client access to deduplicated objects

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 integration with Tivoli Storage Manager -- unified recovery management

You may be facing a data and information tidal wave throughout your enterprise. As a result, you may need more holistic and unified data protection solutions to help ensure data recovery and business continuity, and to address compliance both across your data centers and remote offices. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 is enhanced to help you deal with these challenges. The Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center integrates configuration of policies between Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 Windows® clients and Tivoli Storage Manager.

With the Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center user interface, businesses that use Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 in a Tivoli Storage Manager environment can configure policies that help control retention of Windows client snapshots on a FastBack server for short-term operational recovery and manage long-term data management, retention, and retrieval of Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 data within Tivoli Storage Manager. This policy-based, intelligent data movement is controlled from the Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center and helps align value and needs of the data to the cost and performance characteristics of the storage media. In addition, administration of an environment that has both Tivoli Storage Manager and Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 is simplified with an enhancement to launch the Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack V6.1 manager user interface from the Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1 is based on IBM Tivoli Continuous Data Protection product technology. It is a real-time, continuous data protection solution for Windows laptops and desktops with centralized management capabilities. It is designed to work well even if you are intermittently connected to a network. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1 can back up your most important files the moment they are saved (real-time) instead of waiting for a scheduled interval. Noncritical files can be backed up on a traditional interval.

Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1 is designed to back up your files to the local disk of your computer and to a remote storage device that is not on your computer. The backup copies are versioned and can be restored by date. The local storage area is available to help create backup copies and restore your data even when your computer is not connected to a network. You can restore your data from the remote backup copies in the event that your computer is lost or damaged.

The following are supported by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1:

  • Network file system
  • WebDAV server
  • IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server

Centralized management

Key to providing a unified data protection infrastructure is the ability to centrally control and manage your data protection operations. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1 provides a centralized management interface that helps you manage thousands of laptops and desktops. This central management interface runs in the same integrated solutions console in which the Tivoli Storage Manager Administration Center runs, helping you to manage data protection across the data center, remote office, and mobile users in a centralized way.

This new centralized management capability allows you to:

  • Discover Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Workstations V6.1 clients automatically
  • View client information such as:
    • Deployment information (operating system version, Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack version, and so on)
    • Amount of storage that a client is using
    • Client activity
    • Current client configurations for potential editing
    • Information about a client's storage target
    • Log files
    • Alerts
  • Take client actions such as:
    • Initiate an incremental backup
    • Push a client configuration
    • Lock a client configuration so it cannot be changed
    • Deploy updates
    • Configure e-mail alerts for administrators based on your own criteria

IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager V2.1

In today's business world, where application servers are operational 24 hours a day, the data on these servers should be fully protected. With the rapid increase in the amount of data on these servers, their critical business needs, and the shrinking backup windows, traditional backup and restore methods may be reaching their limits in meeting these challenging requirements. Snapshot operations can help minimize the impact caused by backups and provide near-instant restore capabilities. Because a snapshot operation typically takes much less time than the time for a tape backup, the window during which the data is being backed up can be reduced. This helps facilitate more frequent backups and increase the flexibility of backup scheduling and administration because the time spent for forward recovery through transaction logs after a restore is minimized.

In addition, application data availability can be significantly improved due to the reduction of the load on the production servers. The snapshots can be retained as backups on local disk and, with optional integration with IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, sent to Tivoli Storage Manager server storage pools.

IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager V2.1 utilizes storage snapshot capabilities to provide high-speed, low-impact application data backup and restore functionality for the application and storage environments. Automated policy-based management of multiple snapshot backup versions, together with a simple and guided installation and configuration process, provide an easy-to-use and quick-to-deploy data protection solution that can help meet the most stringent database recovery time requirements.

Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager V2.1 supports clustered application environments (Microsoft Cluster Server and Veritas Cluster Server) on Microsoft Windows and high availability cluster multi-processing (HACMP™ on IBM AIX®) and Microsoft Exchange 2007 continuous replication configurations (local continuous replication (LCR), cluster continuous replication (CCR), and standby continuous replication (SCR)).

IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS) Multiplatform V3.3

GPFS™ Multiplatform V3.3 provides file system services to parallel and serial applications. It gives parallel applications simultaneous access to the same or different files from any node that has the GPFS file system mounted, while managing a high level of control over all file system operations. GPFS is particularly appropriate in an environment where the aggregate peak need for data bandwidth exceeds the capability of a distributed file system server.

GPFS Multiplatform V3.3 enhancements

GPFS introduces a new pricing, licensing, and entitlement structure for Version 3.3 and Version 3.2.

  • GPFS has two types of licenses, a server license and a client license. For each node in a GPFS cluster (see Permitted use of GPFS Server and GPFS Client below), the customer obtains the appropriate number of server or client licenses that correspond to the way GPFS is used on that node.
  • During GPFS cluster configuration, the customer will be prompted to identify whether a particular node is a GPFS Server or a GPFS Client. If a GPFS Client is chosen, function that requires a GPFS Server license will be disabled on this node. Because the node that acts as the GPFS cluster configuration server requires a GPFS Server designation, at least one node in the GPFS cluster will require one or more GPFS Server licenses.
  • A node is defined as an individual operating system image that may appear on a single computer within a cluster, on a system within a cluster, or on a partition.
  • Permitted use of GPFS Server and GPFS Client:
    • You may use the GPFS Server in order to perform the following GPFS functions:
      • Mounting GPFS file systems and accessing data from operating system block devices and NSD servers
      • Performing GPFS management functions such as cluster configuration manager, quorum node, manager node, and Network Shared Disk (NSD) server
      • Sharing data through any application, service protocol, or method, such as Network File System (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), or Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
    • You may use GPFS Client in order to perform the following functions:
      • Mounting GPFS file systems and accessing data from operating system block devices and NSD servers
      • Exchanging data between nodes that locally mount the same GPFS file system
    • See the Ordering information section for an ordering example.

Note: Refer to the GPFS FAQs available from the following Web site for more information, including example configurations and license definitions regarding the new GPFS Server and GPFS Client model.

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clresctr/vxrx/index.jsp? topic=/com

GPFS for Windows Multiplatform now supports the Windows Server 2008 operating system running on 64-bit architectures (AMD x64, Intel® 64). GPFS on Windows participates in a new or existing GPFS cluster (Version 3.2.1.5, or later) in conjunction with AIX and Linux (32- or 64-bit) operating systems. GPFS does not support homogeneous Windows clusters. GPFS V3.3 support is limited to Windows Server 2008.

Administration improvements include:

  • The scope of password-less remote shell command execution is now reduced. GPFS can now be configured so that password-less remote shell execution is not required between all nodes. Prior to GPFS V3.3, GPFS had to be configured so that all nodes can run commands on other nodes via a remote shell without being prompted for a password. GPFS V3.3 can be configured so that only the terminal session where a GPFS administrative command is being executed has to be able to execute remote shell commands on other nodes without being prompted for a password. All other nodes in the cluster do not have to have the ability to run password-less commands everywhere else.
  • GPFS for Linux improves the build process for the GPFS portability layer by:
    • Eliminating the dependency on the imake utility through the use of the kernel Kbuild infrastructure
    • Optionally generating an RPM package containing the GPFS portability layer binaries to facilitate the installation process
  • Users are now allowed to define custom commands to be executed after certain GPFS events. The administrator can use the mmaddcallback command to register a user exit script, the mmdelcallback command to delete a user exit script, and the mmlscallback command to list all the callback scripts currently registered in the GPFS configuration.

Performance and scaling improvements include:

  • The limit on the number of snapshots per file system has been raised from 32 to 256.
  • Performance enhancements have been made to the mmrestripefs, mmfsck, and mmcheckquota commands, and directory locking for concurrent file creates and deletes from multiple nodes.
  • GPFS V3.3 adds support for the Linux AIO APIs io_submit and io_getevents (pread and pwrite only) for workloads that open files using the O_DIRECT flag when the file system is created on local disks.

Policy improvements include several enhancements to the GPFS mmapplypolicy command and the associated GPFS SQL-based policy language:

  • A new command option (-g) is provided to enable a fully parallelized (multi-node and multi-threaded) directory traversal and faster metadata scan with policy rule set evaluation.
  • When invoked with the new (-g) option, mmapplypolicy can tolerate and recover from faults in individual nodes.
  • New command options and policy language extensions allow finer control and customization of the generation of the file lists and the execution of the user scripts associated with the EXTERNAL POOL and EXTERNAL LIST features of the policy language. File lists can be generated by the mmapplypolicy command, generated or manipulated by user programs, and input to the mmapplypolicy command for execution.
  • The policy language now provides for access to Posix and Windows file attributes and to extended attributes.
  • The THRESHOLD file selection criteria can be interpreted with respect to GPFS quotas for EXTERNAL POOLs or EXTERNAL LISTs.

Existing calls for the Inode Scan Interface are enhanced and new calls are available.

GPFS V3.3 provides additional scalable filesystem backup facilities through the enhanced mmbackup command. Enhancements include:

  • Improved performance by use of the policy engine
  • The processing of unlinked filesets
  • Parallel backup to TSM servers
  • Backup of snapshots as filesystem data versus being under the .snapshots/ directory
  • Backup of a live system

Improvements have been made in the GPFS trace subsystem on Linux. The trace subsystem can be configured to run in an overwrite mode for reduced trace overhead and to perform raw trace data compression for extended trace coverage.

Improvements have been made in detecting and diagnosing network problems. GPFS can now automatically detect lost GPFS network messages.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing
Bottom rule

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

Authorized user

An authorized user is one and only one individual (named or unnamed) within or outside your enterprise. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each individual user accessing the program in any manner. A program licensed under an authorized user PoE may be installed on a single computer or server, and accessed by multiple users, provided that a PoE has been obtained for each individual user accessing the program either directly or indirectly (via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means on behalf of the user.

Note that authorized users have unique specific identity and IDs cannot be shared. An ID can establish one or more connections and count as a single authorized user. Specific information to security products:

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% ownership.

External user

An external user is an authorized user who is not part of the enterprise.

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 require PoEs are defined in the License Information's program-unique terms.

Notes:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The program may not run on some or all of the processors for which PoEs are required by the program's valuation method.
  • In the System z IFL environment, each IFL engine is considered a single physical processor.
  • Threading, a technique which makes a single processor seem to perform as two or more, does not affect the count of physical processors.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Partitions

A server's resources (CPU, memory, I/O, interconnects, and buses) may be divided according to the needs of the applications running on the server. This partitioning can be implemented with physical boundaries (physical partitions) or logical boundaries (logical partitions).

Physical partitions are defined by a collection of processors dedicated to a workload and can be used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. In this method, the partitions are divided along hardware boundaries and processors, and the I/O boards, memory, and interconnects are not shared.

Logical partitions are defined by software rather than hardware and allocate a pool of processing resources to a collection of workloads. These partitions, while separated by software boundaries, share hardware components and run in one or more physical partitions.

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.

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

Notes:

  • Licensing for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is per processor core on protected servers.
  • A protected server is a server that backs up to or sends data to a Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server. Protected servers also include any Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server sending its data to another Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server.
  • Licensing for Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack Center is per protected server. Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack Center can only be used on a server that contains eight or fewer processor cores. If you have a server with more than eight cores, you must acquire one or more of the following: Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange, or Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Bare Machine Recovery.
  • Licensing for Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback for Workstations is per 25 client devices.
  • Any Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server that is backed up by Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition) will require separate entitlements for Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition).
  • Separate entitlements for Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition) are not required if the Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack protected servers are restored directly from a Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition) server and those Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack protected servers were backed up initially to a Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server which was then backed up by Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition). In this situation, only the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server that was backed up by Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition) would require Tivoli Storage Manager (or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition) entitlements.
  • Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange is supported only for use with data backed up by Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack or Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail.
  • Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is a prerequisite for Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Bare Machine Recovery.

Example 1

The customer has two Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack servers, of which one is backing up three application servers and the other is backing up one application server that is virtualized. Each application server has four processor cores. Each Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server has eight processor cores.

Example 5

The customer has two Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack servers, each backing up three application servers, all of which are Microsoft Exchange servers that require item-level recovery capability and need bare machine recovery. Because the customer will require Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Microsoft Exchange, and Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack for Bare Machine Recovery that have servers that are eight processors cores or less, they can order Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack Center, which bundles all three products and is licensed on a per server basis. Each Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack server has eight processor cores and all application servers have four processor cores. On one of the Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack servers, data is replicated to a Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack disaster recovery server at a disaster recovery site.

Pricing example for IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager V2.1

The following example is provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager V2.1

Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager performs snapshots at the storage volume level. Entitlement for Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager is on a per terabyte (TB) basis. The storage capacity that requires entitlement is the total allocated volume size managed by Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager.

Scenario 1

The customer wants to have application data snapshot capability on a 100 TB pool of storage capacity on their Oracle database. Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager entitlements are required on the total allocated capacity managed by Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager. Therefore, the customer will require the following entitlements for Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager.

 
 
                               Number of TB
       TB tiers            entitlements required

        13-32                       20
 
        33-64                       32
 
        65-100                      36
 
       101-250                       0
 
       251 +                         0
 
 Total entitlements required       100
 

Notes for Scenario 1

In environments where an application replicates production data to create a replica copy, Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager entitlement is only required on the capacity of the total allocated volume size managed by Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager for the source volumes of the production application data. For example, if the snapshot is taken of the replica data, entitlement is required for the total allocated volume size managed by Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager for the allocated volumes of the production application data.

When Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager is used in a Tivoli Storage Manager environment and it sends data to a Tivoli Storage Manager server to be managed, you are required to have entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition for the application server for which Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager manages data. In addition, you are required to have entitlement for the appropriate Tivoli Storage Manager application agent (the agent for Microsoft SQL and Oracle is IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases, the agent for Microsoft Exchange is IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail, and the agent for SAP is IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning). The Tivoli Storage Manager agent for IBM DB2 is included with DB2, so an additional Tivoli Storage Manager application agent entitlement is not required in that case.

Scenario 2

If the customer in Scenario 1 sends that 100 TB of Oracle database data to a Tivoli Storage Manager server to be backed up, then the customer will need to entitle the server that is running the Oracle database for Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases, which also requires entitlement for Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition. The Tivoli Storage Manager server needs to be entitled with either Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.

For Scenario 2, the following entitlements are required in addition to the requirements from Scenario 1. In this example, the Oracle database server and the Tivoli Storage Manager server are both dual quad core servers, with a total of 8 processor cores on each server.

Tivoli Storage Manager environment          Processor core entitlements
                                             required
 
 Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases              8
 
 Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli                 16
 Storage Manager Extended Edition
 
 Total processor core entitlements                24
 required
 

Changes to Tivoli Storage Manager and Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition pricing

When Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition are used in conjunction with Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager, the following licensing requirement changes apply for Tivoli Storage Manager and Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.

For the purpose of offloaded proxy backup of Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager managed data to Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition, you are entitled to install on a secondary machine, at no additional charge:

  • A second copy of Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager
  • A second copy of Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition
  • A second copy of the Tivoli Storage Manager application agent (the agent for Microsoft SQL and Oracle is Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases, the agent for Microsoft Exchange is Tivoli Storage Manager for Mail, and the agent for SAP is Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning). The secondary machine is intended for offloaded data backup to Tivoli Storage Manager or Tivoli Storage Manager Extended Edition.
