Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples
Bottom rule

Licensing metric definitions

General charge terms

Hundred thousand square meters

Hundred thousand square meters is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Gross square area is the sum of all areas on all floors of a building within the outside faces of its exterior walls, including all vertical penetrations and technical infrastructure rooms. Licensee must obtain hundred thousand square meters entitlements sufficient to cover the total gross square area managed by the program.

Million square feet

Million square feet is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Gross square area is the sum of all areas on all floors of a building within the outside faces of its exterior walls, including all vertical penetrations and technical infrastructure rooms. Licensee must obtain million square feet entitlements sufficient to cover the total gross square area managed by the program.

Pricing examples

IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization is licensed as a single part number based on the square footage or square meters of the buildings which are being managed by the solution. It is licensed in either 1 million square feet or 100,000 square meter increments. Customers may choose either 1 million square feet or 100,000 square meter metrics in order to license the solution. For example, a customer using IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization to manage 10 buildings, each measured at 250,000 square feet, would purchase a quantity of three 1 million square feet entitlements of IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization.

IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization usage is restricted to managing building infrastructure and equipment to support building operation (such as heating, cooling, and ventilation).

IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization will be able to help manage the energy usage of a building including non-IT equipment in a data center such as power distribution units (PDU), computer room air conditioning (CRAC), and chillers.

IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization may be used to manage the energy usage of IT assets within a data center (such as servers, storage devices, personal computers, switches, and routers), however, additional licenses for appropriate products to support the management of those assets.

A data center is a dedicated area used to house IT equipment.

In order to manage the power and thermal characteristics of the IT equipment in the data center, such as servers, storage devices and telecommunications equipment as well as access data center specific reports, separate licenses for IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization will be required.

Pricing example 1

A university wants to manage the energy and facilities operations cost of 5 of their buildings on campus which measure a total of 2.5 million square feet. This customer would like to use IBM TRIRIGA Energy Optimization in order to reduce its facility operations cost and optimize its energy costs. Therefore, the following licensing scheme applies:

                                  Quantity         License
                                  in customer      entitlements

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

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.

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.
