Licensing metric definition and pricing example
Bottom rule

Licensing metric definition

Tiered Terabytes (1-100)

Terabyte (1-100) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number of Terabytes available to the program. A Terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for Licensee's environment. The entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with entitlements of another program.

Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain Terabyte entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the program. The storage managed is the total allocated size of all volumes managed by the program.

Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack repository volumes.

Pricing example

Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery Entry supports a combined maximum of 100 terabytes (TB) per enterprise in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack repository volumes. In addition, a maximum of two Tivoli Storage Manager servers are supported per enterprise.

If a customer has 10 TB in their Tivoli Storage Manager primary storage pool and 10 TB in their Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack repository, the customer requires Proofs of Entitlements (PoEs) of 20 TB of Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery Entry.

If a customer reaches the maximum of 100 TB under management and foresees the need for more licenses, the customer will require a trade up to Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery (5724-Z12).

If a customer requires more than two Tivoli Storage Manager servers, the customer will require a trade up to Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery (5724-Z12).

This program is 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. This program has 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.

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

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

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. 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.
