Overview
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Data Replication V10.1.2 delivers new data replication capabilities for use in multiple enterprise data integration projects. These capabilities enhance the Change Data Capture and Q Replication technologies of IBM®.

Enhancements to IBM Change Data Capture technology

  • Netezza can now be a target for scalable, high-volume replication with transactional integrity to
    • Deliver changed data from DB2®, Oracle, Microsoft™ SQL Server, Sybase ASE, and IBM Informix® using either InfoSphere Data Replication or InfoSphere Change Data Capture
    • Deliver changed data from IMS™ using InfoSphere Classic Change Data Capture for IMS
    • Configure and monitor Netezza replication solutions using the Change Data Capture Management Console
  • Capture data that was committed as part of XA transactions -- global transactions that may span multiple resources. This capability is available for DB2 and Oracle sources.
  • Select optimization strategies to increase efficiency and parallelism when applying data to target databases. This can help achieve the high-volume replication required to address growing business needs.

Enhancements to IBM Q Replication technology

  • Enhancements to the original, full-site version of the Q Replication Dashboard
    • Extensions to the Alert Manager feature of the dashboard with new alert conditions for memory usage and large transactions.
    • Ability to set thresholds and notifications for Queue Depth alerts at a queue level.
    • Ability to invoke the IBM table comparison utility (asntdiff) when DB2 source databases are running with Windows™ XP.
  • Time-delayed targets that can improve disaster recovery and high-availability solutions by buffering changed data on target systems before it is applied to target databases
    • Ability to replicate changed data from the source to the target system, with low latency and buffering in WebSphere® MQ.
    • If errors occur in source applications or during database maintenance and are not discovered until data is replicated, ability to stop the Q Apply program while the corrupted data is still buffered, thereby preventing corruption of the target database.
    • Alternatively, in situations where a source database outage occurs and no corruption exists, buffered data that can be applied to the target database. Once applied, the low-latency nature of the buffered data means that the target database will reflect virtually all of the changes made to the data source before the outage occurred.
  • Ability to use the BINARY and VARBINARY data types of DB2 for z/OS® in Q Subscriptions.
  • Support of consistent change data (CCD) and point-in-time tables as Q Replication sources.

In addition, InfoSphere Data Replication is now an offering for database migration. This offering can be used to migrate data from one version of a database to another, from one vendor's database to another, or from one hardware platform to another. It allows one-way replication from a single source database to a single target database, with replication of data definition language (DDL) limited to the addition or removal of table partitions when the source and target are both Oracle databases, and transformations during replication limited to migrations where the source is an Oracle database and the target is a DB2 database.

This release limits database migration to one of the following source and target combinations:

  • An Oracle source database and an Oracle target database
  • A DB2 for Linux™, UNIX™, or Windows source database and a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, or Windows target database
  • A DB2 for System i® source database and a DB2 for System i target database
  • An Oracle source database and a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, or Windows target database

Product positioning
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Data Replication V10.1.2 is integrated into the IBM Information Management software portfolio and 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 capability 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 who need to offload queries, reports, and backups to avoid impacting performance and user response times on claims processing systems that are essential for operations.

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)

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 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 (see 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.

Note: 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.

Note: 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.

Note: 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.

Note: 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.

Managed Server

Managed Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. Licensee must obtain Managed Server entitlements for each server managed by 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.

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.
