The IBM® System Storage™ ProtecTIER® for System z® Gateway solution, comprised of IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z V1R2 software and IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z (3958-DE2) hardware, is designed to help address the tape processing needs of System z data centers.

As part of V1R2, the IP replication function addresses two of the biggest requirements in a deduplication environment today -- Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities and off-site storage and archiving. V1R2 provides a simple, affordable, over the WAN method to move data to a remote DR site, and supports tape archiving capabilities outside of the primary production environment.

Benefits

Designed to:

  • Transmit only deduplicated data to the target cluster
  • Significantly reduce the network bandwidth required to copy the data from the source cluster to the target cluster
  • Allow configurable replication to DR site
  • Initiate replication before volume is unloaded
  • Make volumes visible to both sites at the same time

For ordering, contact your IBM representative or an IBM Business Partner. For more information, contact the Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (426-2255).

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z, IBM 3958 Model DE2 hardware, as defined in Hardware Announcement 110-056, dated February 09, 2010.

Additional hardware, defined in the announcement for IBM 3958-DE2, is required to complete the TS7680 deduplication solution.

ProtecTIER Manager

ProtecTIER Manager is required for operations of ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z.

The ProtecTIER Manager may be installed on the TSSC attached to the TS7680 Deduplication Gateway for System z or the customer may install the ProtecTIER Manager on their own workstation. If a TSSC is installed in the TS7680 Deduplication Gateway for System z, the ProtecTIER Manager is pre-installed on that TSSC.

Windows® XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 Red Hat Enterprise 4, or later (ProtecTIER Manager is not supported in RHEL 5.4) Linux® MCP 32-bit.

The workstation must also have:

  • At least 100 MB of available disk space
  • At least 256 MB of RAM

The workstation must have access to the ProtecTIER service nodes at IP address. (Port 3501 is open on the firewall.)

The ProtecTIER Manager can support more than one ProtecTIER server. If the ProtecTIER Manager workstation is connected to more that one ProtecTIER server, they can be connected to a workstation via a switch box or via a terminal server. The workstation and switch box must be provided by the customer. Confer with your IBM representative for workstation configuration alternatives.

Software requirements

ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z is supported on z/OS V1R10, or later (refer to APAR OA27786) and z/VM V5R4, or later including DFSMS/VM FL221 (refer to APAR VM64773). ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z appears to the host as a standard automated tape library with tape drives attached, and is DFSMS (SMSTAPE) compliant. The APARs referenced above were provided for the first release of ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z and those same APARs apply to V1R2.

Replication policies for z/OS

Replication in a z/OS environment is not typically done by a policy over a VOLSER range. It is recommended that you configure a default policy for all volumes, or a policy for all VOLSER ranges that are inserted into the library to be replicated. In general, with z/OS (and system-managed tape), selective replication by VOLSER range is not supported and would be controlled at the common scratch pool level. Reason being, a common scratch pool is used for scratch mounts, so all of the data (VOLSER ranges) associated with a common scratch pool is either replicated or it isn't. Then on an exception basis, some applications or jobs could be set up to mount by specific VOLSER allowing some amount of selective replication by VOLSER range.

IBM is planning to add support for Advanced Policy Management in the next ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z release, which will allow the user to define workload-specific replication policies.

Replication policies for z/VM

Replication in a z/VM environment can be configured by a VOLSER range. When a VOLSER is inserted within a range with a defined replication policy, then that VOLSER is replicated. If a VOLSER is inserted into the library and there is no default policy for that VOLSER range, then the VOLSER is not replicated.

Operating system prerequisites

A Linux operating system is included with the IBM System Storage ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z V1R2 and is loaded on ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway for System z.

Connectivity prerequisites

The supported Fiber Channel switches are listed in the System Storage Operation Center (SSIC) located at

Top rule
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

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and PoE govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) agreement applies for subscription and support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form number

L-CKOR-86A2AK. The program's LI will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www-03.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).

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 clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Other terms
Volume orders (IVO)

Yes. Contact your IBM representative.

IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement
Passport Advantage applies

No

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) applies

Yes. All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage for a total of three years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) 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, only 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, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
