Product positioning
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Data Replication V10.1 is integrated into the IBM Information Management software portfolio. This product is intended for:

  • Customers who need accurate and frequent sales and customer reports to make better operational decisions regarding pricing, merchandising, and inventory management. This is enabled through consolidation of key business data from diverse operational systems into a centralized data warehouse in near real time.
  • Companies that require more business agility through real-time change data capture.
  • Enterprises that require more business visibility through granular data changes in real-time business intelligence.
  • Organizations that require the ability to increase responsiveness to business events and capitalize on upcoming business opportunities through event detection.
  • Retailers who want to sell in stores, over the web, and by phone, and who need consistent up-to-date information accessible to all three channels. For example, ensuring that wedding registry purchases do not get duplicated and that customers can inquire over the phone or on the web about product availability and the status of orders completed through other channels.
  • Public companies that require consolidated financial reporting across a range of transactional systems in different regions, departments, or business units.
  • Companies that need to migrate data from an incompatible ERP application of an acquired company into their own ERP application (or between incompatible versions of an ERP application).
  • Shipping companies that enable customers to access real-time shipment information on their websites while significantly reducing the impact on their mission-critical logistics systems they use to help ensure efficient, continuous operations.
  • Government agencies that provide public access to up-to-date information on criminal proceedings on the Internet, but cannot risk letting users directly access sensitive information on offenders.
  • Financial Services companies that need to flow data from legacy financial systems on mainframes into systems on open platforms to support Internet-based communications, statement processing, and other applications more efficiently with minimal impact on key legacy systems.
  • Health insurers that need to off-load queries, reports, and backups to avoid impacting performance and user response times on their claims processing systems that are essential for operations.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

The hardware requirements depend on the technology used:

Software requirements

The software requirements depend on the technology used:

For Q Replication, WebSphere® MQ V6.0, or later, is required. A restricted-use license of WebSphere MQ V7.0 is included at no additional charge.

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a readme file, or other information published by IBM, such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language.

Security, auditability, and control

These products use 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

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

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 webpage 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.

Notes:

  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.
  • Express® and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware Programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.
