Description

IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software (5639-NZ1)

Each IBM Flex System V7000 (4939-A49) Control Enclosure and each IBM Flex System V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosure (4939-A29) uses the IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software, 5639-NZ1. A quantity of one 5639-NZ1 IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software license is required for each enclosure, whether control or expansion enclosure. For example, a IBM Flex System V7000 order consisting of one control enclosure and two IBM Flex System V7000 Disk Expansion enclosures requires three IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software licenses, 5639-NZ1, one license for each enclosure.

Flex System V7000 Base Software includes the following features and capabilities:

IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software (5639-VM1) for use with Storwize V7000 External Expansion Enclosures

When Storwize V7000 Expansion Enclosures are used as external expansions enclosures with the Flex System V7000 Control Enclosure (4939-A49), each IBM Storwize V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosure (2076-212/224) must have the IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software license, 5639-VM1. A quantity of one 5639-VM1 IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software license is required for each Storwize V7000 Expansion Enclosure. For example, a IBM Flex System V7000 configuration comprised of one Flex System V7000 Control Enclosure (4939-A49), one Flex System V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosure (4939-A29), and three Storwize V7000 expansion enclosures (2076-212/224) requires three IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software licenses, 5639-VM1, one for each enclosure, and two IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software licenses, 5639-NZ1, one for each enclosure.

IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software (5639-EX1)

Each IBM Flex System V7000 (4939-A49) Disk Control Enclosure has the ability to attach and manage external storage devices on the SAN in the same way as the SAN Volume Controller. To authorize use of this function, you must license the IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software, 5639-EX1. You will need to license the number of storage enclosures attached externally to the IBM Flex System V7000. IBM Flex System V7000 (4939-A49) Control Enclosures and IBM Flex System V7000 Expansion Enclosures (4939-A29) do not need to be included in this External Virtualization license, however any IBM Flex System V7000 Control Enclosures or Expansion Enclosures which are SAN-attached and virtualized must be included in this license.

A storage enclosure externally managed by IBM Flex System V7000 is defined as an independently powered, channel-attached device that stores data on magnetic disks or SSDs, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate enclosures. Therefore, an enclosure can be either the main controller housing disk (or SSD) drives or the expansion chassis that house additional disk (or SSD) drives for the purpose of expanding the total capacity of the storage system. If there is any confusion for an external storage enclosure that does not conform to this definition, consult your IBM sales representative for an equivalent measure based on a disk drive count.

For example, adding a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures to an IBM Flex System V7000 consisting of one control enclosure and one expansion enclosure, you will need license for three enclosures (one for each of the DS5020 enclosures) of the IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software, 5639-EX1.

IBM Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RE1)

Global (long distance greater than 300 Km) mirroring is only supported over Fibre Channel SAN infrastructure. Local Mirroring (less than 300 Km) is supported over either Fibre Channel(FC) or Fibre Channel Over Ethernet (FCoE) SAN infrastructure. Mirroring over iSCSI fabric is not supported at this time. Consult System Storage Interoperability Center for supported configurations.

To authorize use of Remote Copy capabilities of the IBM Flex System V7000 where the primary and secondary systems have the same number of enclosures at each site, you must purchase a license for IBM Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RE1) with the quantity of licenses that matches the number of licensed enclosures managed by the IBM Flex System V7000 Disk System, including each internal enclosure licensed with the IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software (5639-NZ1), each attached Storwize V7000 expansion enclosure with the Storwize V7000 Base Software (5639-VM1), and each external enclosure licensed with the IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software (5639-EX1).

For example, if your primary system has a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures managed by a IBM Flex System V7000 consisting of one control enclosure and one expansion enclosure, and you have the same total count of enclosures at the secondary system, then in order to authorize remote mirroring for the primary system, you will need to license the IBM Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring Software, 5639-RE1, with a quantity of five enclosures. Assuming the matching secondary system is also a IBM Flex System V7000, you will need an additional five enclosure licenses of 5639-RE1 for the secondary system, for a total of 10 enclosure licenses.

For primary and secondary systems with differing numbers of enclosures using Remote Mirroring, the number of 5639-RE1 licenses needed for each system is the number of enclosures on the smaller of the two systems (see scenarios 1 and 2 below).

When multiple production systems replicate to a single disaster recovery system, the number of 5639-RE1 licenses at the disaster recover system must equal the sum of the 5639-RE1 licenses at the production systems (see scenario 3 below).

The following are examples of how to license Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RE1) under these licensing rules:

Scenario 1: The primary system is a three-enclosure Flex System V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has three 5639-NZ1 licenses. The secondary system is a two-enclosure Flex System V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has two 5639-NZ1 licenses. The Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: two 5639-RE1 licenses for the primary system plus two 5639-RE1 licenses for the secondary system, for a total of four 5639-RE1 licenses required.

Scenario 2: The primary system is a one-enclosure Flex System V7000 managing a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures, therefore it has one 5639-NZ1 license plus three 5639-EX1 licenses. The secondary system is a three-enclosure Flex System V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has three 5639-NZ1 licenses. The Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: three 5639-RE1 licenses for the primary system plus three 5639-RE1 licenses for the secondary system, for a total of six 5639-RE1 licenses required.

Scenario 3: There are three primary systems replicating to a central disaster recovery system. The three primary systems are as follows:

The central disaster recovery system is a nine-enclosure Flex System V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has nine 5639-NZ1 licenses. The Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: a sum of seven 5639-RE1 licenses for the primary systems plus seven 5639-RE1 licenses for the central disaster recovery system, for a total of fourteen 5639-RE1 licenses required.

Global Mirror with Change Volumes Customers who wish to use the global mirror capability with Flex System V7000 can do so on a low bandwidth link between sites. This provides options to help administrators balance network bandwidth requirements and RPO times for applications, helping to reduce operation costs for disaster recovery solutions. Remote mirroring supports higher RPO times by allowing the data at the disaster recovery site to get further out of sync with the production site if the communication link limits replication, and then approaches synchronicity again when the link is not as busy. This low bandwidth remote mirroring uses space-efficient FlashCopy targets as sources in remote copy relationships to increase the time allowed to complete a remote copy data cycle.

Remote mirroring between Flex System V7000, SVC and Storwize V7000: Customers have greater flexibility in their expanding environments using Flex System V7000, Storwize V7000, and SVC with the ability now to remote mirror from one system to the other. With the wide variety of storage systems that can be managed under any of these systems, the options available for replicating data between a number of storage systems is multiplied. Remote deployments for disaster recovery for current SVC and Storwize V7000 environments can easily be fitted with the Flex System V7000 or vice versa.

This function does not affect how Metro/Global Mirror on the SVC or Remote Mirroring on the Flex System V7000 or Storwize V7000 is licensed. You must still license usage for volumes replicated at the source and the target. Because of a difference in metrics, SVC mirroring can be licensed for a subset of the total storage virtualized, and the Flex System V7000 and Storwize V7000 mirroring can be licensed interchangeably for the systems involved in the mirroring relationships applying their respective remote mirroring licensing rules between systems.

The remote mirroring license that the customer should acquire for use with a given system in a remote copy relationship should correspond to the remote mirroring license created for that system, whether that be the SAN Volume Controller Metro/Global Mirror license, Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring license, or the Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring license.

For example, there are three primary systems replicating to a central disaster recovery system. The three primary systems are as follows:

The central disaster recovery system is a nine-enclosure Storwize V7000 with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has nine 5639-VM1 licenses. The Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring licensing would be as follows: a sum of six 5639-RE1 licenses and one 5639-RM1 license ( Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring) for the primary systems plus seven 5639-RM1 licenses for the central disaster recovery system, for a total of six 5639-RE1 licenses and eight 5639-RM1 licenses required.

IBM Flex System V7000 Real-time Compression Software (5639-CM1)

IBM Flex System V7000 is designed to improve storage efficiency by supporting real-time compression for block storage. This improves efficiency by compressing data by as much as 80%, and enables storage of up to five times as much data in the same physical disk space. Unlike other approaches to compression, IBM Real-time Compression is designed to be used with active primary data such as production databases and email systems, dramatically expanding the range of candidate data that can benefit from compression. IBM Real-time Compression operates as data is written to disk to eliminate wasted space storing uncompressed data awaiting post-processing.

To authorize use of Real-time Compression capabilities of the IBM Flex System V7000, you must purchase a license for IBM Flex System V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CM1) with the quantity of authorization features that match the number of licensed enclosures managed by the IBM Flex System V7000 Disk System, including each internal enclosure licensed with the IBM Flex System V7000 Base Software (5639-NZ1), each attached Storwize V7000 Expansion enclosure licensed with the Storwize V7000 Base Software (5639-VM1), and each external enclosure licensed with the IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software (5639-EX1).

For example, if you have IBM Flex System V7000 consisting of one control enclosure and one expansion enclosure (two 5639-NZ1 licenses), three Storwize V7000 Expansion enclosures (three 5639-VM1 licenses) managing a DS5020 consisting of four enclosures (four 5639-EX1 licenses), in order to authorize Real-time Compression for this configuration you will need a license for the IBM Flex System V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CM1) with a quantity of nine enclosure licenses.

Clustered systems

IBM Flex System V7000 allows clustered systems with up to four Flex System V7000 Control Enclosures. Each Control Enclosure in a clustered system has the advantage of processing unique host system I/O workloads while configuration and management of the storage is performed at the system level. This provides up to four times the capacity and four times the throughput to support business growth, and it enables more consolidation, including external virtualized storage, for greater efficiency. Flex System V7000 clustered systems can only be created with like Flex System V7000 Control Enclosures. A Flex System V7000 Control Enclosure cannot be clustered with a Storwize V7000 Control Enclosure (machine type 2076), nor can it be clustered with SAN Volume Controller Storage Hardware Engines (machine type 2145).

Auto renewal registration of software maintenance for Storwize Flex System software (Feature number 9000)

Software maintenance renewals in the AAS ordering system for Flex System V7000 software are available via a services contract. Selecting feature number 9000 with the software maintenance registration ordered with the Flex System V7000 software indicates the desire to continue software maintenance on a services contract at the end of the initial software maintenance term.

Note: Auto renewal services are not available in all countries or for all initial software maintenance contract terms.

45-Day migration allowance

With the benefit of external virtualization, the Flex System V7000 allows customers to bring a system into their storage environment to quickly and easily migrate data from existing storage systems to the Flex System V7000. In order to facilitate this migration, IBM allows customers 45 days from the date of purchase of the Flex System V7000 system to use the external virtualization function for the purpose of migrating data from an existing storage system to the Flex System V7000 system. Any use thereafter, and ongoing use of the external virtualization function of Flex System V7000, requires the purchase of a Flex System V7000 External Virtualization license at a quantity equal to the capacity managed under the Flex System V7000 system. Migrations performed at later points in time that are to completely replace other storage systems with the Flex System V7000, thereby requiring temporary virtualization of that external storage system to perform that replacement activity, are granted a 45-day period for use of external virtualization without having to purchase a license to complete such a migration effort. Customers must make their sales representative aware of their intent and when they will be starting this migration so that an end date can be tracked. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they are properly licensed for all external storage managed by Flex System V7000 after those 45 days.

Money-back guarantee

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 any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Top rule
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.
