Overview
Bottom rule

Today, warehouse deployments continue to become increasingly critical to the operations and growth of businesses around the world. As the volume of data has grown exponentially over the last few years in these warehouses, so has their complexity and dependence on them. Businesses are increasingly driving day-to-day operations and future strategic direction from the information contained within and derived from these warehouses. As their complexity and volume of storage grows so does the complexity of managing, evolving, and evolving their structure. InfoSphere Warehouse is introducing two new editions to address these issues and to help organization achieve these objectives.

IBM InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Enterprise Edition 9.7.3 enhances the capabilities of InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Departmental Edition by delivering the industry proven warehouse model packs along with leading architecture, performance, backup, and recovery tools.

  • InfoSphere Data Architect (10 Authorized User licenses) - a collaborative data design solution that helps you discover, model, relate, and standardize diverse and distributed data assets.
  • Optim™ Query Tuner - providing expert advice on writing high quality queries and improving database design via graphical query information and index, statistics, and query advisors.
  • Optim High Performance Unload - a high speed tool for unloading, extracting, repartitioning very large quantities of data with less efforts and faster results.
  • DB2® Merge Backup - allows you to speed up taking DB2 backups on your production servers and have full current backups available for much shorter restore times.
  • DB2 Recovery Expert - a self-managing recovery solution that enables intelligent analysis of altered, incorrect, or missing database assets. Use the log analysis component to isolate accidental or undesired changes made to the database tables and quickly undo those changes.

These tools will help you increase efficiency and reduce time to market through increased understanding of current data assets while simplifying daily operations of managing complex warehouse deployments with InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Enterprise Edition.

Description
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Enterprise Edition 9.7.3 adds leading architecture, performance, backup, and recovery tools that help increase efficiency and reduce time to market through increased understanding of current data assets while simplifying daily operations of managing complex warehouse deployments.

  • InfoSphere Data Architect is a collaborative data design solution that can be used to discover, model, visualize, relate, and standardize diverse and distributed data assets. Included in InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Enterprise Edition are 10 Authorized User licenses. In conjunction with the warehouse packs, InfoSphere Data Architect lets you enhance those models, and develop and deploy your own custom models tailored to the specific industry or business environment.
  • Optim Query Tuner can help cut costs and improve performance by providing expert advice on writing high quality queries and improving database design. Its easy-to-use advisors can help developers to write more efficient SQL queries, identify query candidates, and facilitate analysis of those queries.
  • Optim High Performance Unload helps database administrators (DBAs) work with very large quantities of data with less effort and faster results. Organizations value Optim High Performance Unload for its ability to execute concurrently with production applications, reduce the risk of impacting online production by fitting more work into tight or shrinking batch windows, recover data from single table failures or accidental table drops by extracting tables from a backup image (incremental, delta, and full backup images), deliver the value of new hardware and software investments faster by speeding database migrations, eliminate the need for intermediate storage for database migrations, unload large volumes of data with speed, accuracy, and minimal effort.
  • DB2 Merge Backup shortens recovery times on production servers. It helps ensure full current backups are available and can be restored as quickly as possible. Perform backup processes with minimal impact on production systems to support business objectives while developing a scalable approach for responding to unplanned service interruptions. DB2 Merge Backup helps ensure a complete, accurate DB2 backup, even as data volumes increase, and can merge several incremental backups with the latest full backup to create a new, more current full backup.

DB2 Recovery Expert helps reduce the time it takes to recover production warehouses. It provides the ability to slim down log transactions by creating subsets by table. It also assists DBAs and IT support teams in determining the best path of recovery and resources needed. The Log analysis feature allows DBAs to monitor activity to sensitive DB2 tables. DBAs can view data changes by dates, users, tables, and other criteria. You can isolate accidental or undesired changes made to the database tables and quickly undo those changes with minimal disruption to the business.

If you are developing, managing, growing, evolving, and struggling with the complexity of your warehouse deployments, InfoSphere Warehouse Advanced Enterprise Edition delivers an enhanced set of database performance, management, and design tools to help assist you to maintain and receive increased value from your warehouses while helping to reduce the total cost for maintaining these complex environments.

Note: Debundling of Alphablox from the packaging

In this release, Alphablox is debundled from the Infosphere Warehouse Enterprise, Departmental, and Optim Data Retention Editions, as well as from Enterprise Warehouse Feature for DB2. Customers with these editions will be given an entitlement to the equivalent number of PVUs or sockets (280 PVU per socket) of Alphablox so that they can choose to renew support on their next renewal anniversary. The AlphaBlox® component of InfoSphere Warehouse Developer edition will be removed from the package.

Security, auditability, and control

IBM InfoSphere Warehouse uses the security and auditability features of the host hardware or software.

The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.

Charge metrics definitions

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 (PVU)

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

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

and the number of processors made available to the program. 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 (refer to the webpage below). If using full capacity licensing, licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* 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

* 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.

Terabyte (TB) metric guide

TB is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. You are able to purchase the program based only on the amount of user data (TB) reported by the program. As your user data volumes grow, you can purchase additional warehousing capacity. User data is defined as user tables, derived summary tables (for multidimensional clustering), and temp tables.

For each database, you must acquire enough TB entitlements to cover the the amount of user data reported by the program.

  • Example A:

    A database with 1.75 TB of data must acquire a 2 terabyte entitlement.

  • Example B:

    An instance with 2 databases, one storing 1.4 TB, and a second with 3.2 TB must acquire 6 TB (2 plus 4) worth of entitlement.

The actual amount of storage used can be measured by running the terabyte metric tool against each database.

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.

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.
