http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/infosphere/info-server/overview/requirements.html

Notes:

  • If you are installing the services and engine on separate machines, each machine must have the same operating system.
  • InfoSphere Metadata Server consists of the repository tier and services tier.

Recommended hardware

  • Processor: 2.5 GHz (minimum required); faster processors are recommended.
  • Memory: 6 GB of RAM (minimum required); 8+ GB of RAM recommended.

When you install IBM InfoSphere Information Server, 50 MB of temporary files are added and removed after the installation process is complete.

The IBM InfoSphere Information Server architecture consists of multiple tiers. Depending on the product required by the user, different tiers will be installed. These tiers include:

  • Metadata repository tier: The metadata repository and, if installed, the IBM InfoSphere Information Analyzer analysis database and the computer where these components are installed. The metadata repository database contains the shared metadata, data, and configuration information for InfoSphere Information Server product modules. The analysis database stores extended analysis data for InfoSphere Information Analyzer.
  • Services tier: The application server, common services, and product services for the suite and product modules and the computer where those components are installed. The services tier provides both common services (such as metadata and logging) and services that are specific to certain product modules. Within the tier, IBM WebSphere Application Server hosts the services. The services tier also hosts InfoSphere Information Server applications that are web-based.
  • Engine tier: The logical group of engine components (the InfoSphere Information Server engine components, service agents, and so on) and the computer where those components are installed. The engine runs jobs and other tasks for product modules that require the engine.
  • Client tier: The client programs and consoles that are used for development and administration and the computers where they are installed.

Repository tier:

  • DB2 ESE 9.5 (Fixpack 2) and IBM DB2 ESE 9.7
  • Oracle 10gR2 and 11gR2 (data direct JDBC drivers 3.6)
  • SQL Server 2005 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 (Windows only; data direct JDBC drivers 3.6)

Notes:

  • DB2 Restricted Enterprise Edition 9 is included with IBM InfoSphere Information Server and is an optional part of the installation that requires an additional 390 MB of disk space. If DB2 Restricted Enterprise Edition 9 is optionally installed, it is only licensed for use with IBM InfoSphere Information Server. Information Server V8.5 offers significantly increased data protection, scalability, and performance for its database operations based on IBM DB2 technology, which is designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently. Greater availability is delivered through enhancements such as online, automated database reorganization. In addition, the increased scalability and the ability to leverage the latest in server technology helps deliver increased performance of backup and recovery processes.
  • IBM InfoSphere Information Server does not support the Database Partitioning Feature of IBM DB2 ESE 9 for use in the Repository tier.
  • The database needs to have 700 MB of initial free space. With added projects and continued usage, additional disk space will be required.

Services tier

IBM InfoSphere Information Server requires WebSphere Application Server 7.0.0.7 and 6.1.0.27, or higher. WebSphere Application Server is included as a part of IBM InfoSphere Information Server and is an optional part of the installation that requires an additional 1 GB of disk space. If WebSphere Application Server is optionally installed, it is only licensed for use with IBM InfoSphere Information Server.

Disk space for the Services tier: 4 GB

Engine tier

InfoSphere DataStage and InfoSphere QualityStage requirements

Disk space: 600 MB

Compiler:

  • Windows: Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2005/2008 C++ or Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2005/2008 Express® Edition C++
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux: gcc 4.1.2
  • SUSE Linux: gcc 4.1.2
  • IBM XL C/C++ for AIX 9 and 10.1

Requirements

  • 750 MB in the InfoSphere DataStage installation directory
  • Sufficient disk space for temporary data storage while an InfoSphere DataStage or InfoSphere QualityStage job is running

InfoSphere Information Server Console (including InfoSphere Information Analyzer) requirement:

Microsoft Visual Studio .Net V1.1

InfoSphere Business Glossary requirement

Internet Explorer 6.0, or later

IBM InfoSphere Information Server bridges and InfoSphere MetaBroker®

  • Disk space: 10 MB.
  • IBM InfoSphere Information Server bridges and InfoSphere MetaBroker are not installed as part of the IBM InfoSphere Information Server Client tier. If you want to use the InfoSphere MetaBroker, you must install InfoSphere MetaBroker after you install IBM InfoSphere Information Server.
  • IBM InfoSphere Information Server bridges and InfoSphere MetaBroker provide metadata import from over 80 tools, including major vendors in data modeling, data profiling, business intelligence, data quality, and ETL, as well as direct connections to data stores both natively and via OBDC and JDBC.

Charge metrics definitions

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.

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 Proof of Entitlement (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.

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Install of the program.

Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by Processor Value, Brand, Type, and Model Number at the following website and the number of processors made available to the program.

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

IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html
1
An Activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

RVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. RVU entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of RVUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The RVU entitlements are specific to the program and may include, but are not limited to the following: client devices, data source records, messages, and servers, and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of RVU licensing, and to determine how many RVUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited 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. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found 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 version or release 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 (modifications or fixes), 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

For clarification, note that 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 clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Software Subscription and Support

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is included with licenses purchased through Passport Advantage and Passport Advantage Express. Product upgrades and technical support are provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering as described in the Agreements. Product upgrades provide the latest versions and releases to entitled software and Technical Support provides voice and electronic access to IBM support organizations, worldwide.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

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.
