This release provides extensive new capabilities with enhanced big data tools for visualization, monitoring, development, integration with many more enterprise systems, and additional platform support for Cloudera. In addition, BigInsights V2.0 will also introduce two new Application Accelerators that will make it easy to get started for faster ROI. The two accelerators introduced in this release are the Social Data Analytics Accelerator and the Machine Data Analytics Accelerator.

New capabilities in IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition V2.0:

InfoSphere BigInsights can be used with other IBM products for advanced analytics and a more comprehensive information management strategy. It lets you combine traditional data warehouse analysis with dynamic insights from unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data. InfoSphere BigInsights allows you to analyze all your data, giving you a more complete view of the business.

Combined with the IBM warehouse offerings ( IBM Netezza , IBM Smart Analytics System, or IBM InfoSphere Warehouse), InfoSphere BigInsights can extend analysis to encompass information-in-motion and information accumulated over a long period of time.

Charge metrics definitions

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User an may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

RVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. RVU entitlements are based on the quantity of a specific designated measurement for the given program. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of RVUs required for your environment as defined by the specific program terms. The RVU entitlements are specific to the program and may include, but are not limited to the following: Client Devices, data source records, messages, and servers, and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program. To understand these benefits of RVU licensing, and to determine how many RVUs to obtain for the program, contact your IBM representative.

The resource for the purpose of the RVU calculation is the number of terabytes of storage managed by the program. A terabyte is 2 to the 40th power bytes. Licensee must obtain RVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the program in the Licensee's environment.

Value Unit Exhibit 027 (VUE027A) is used for the purpose of calculating the number of RVUs required. Value Unit Exhibit 027A (VUE027A) is shown in the table below.

The following examples are provided to illustrate your licensing requirements.

IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition requires entitlement for all resources managed (terabytes of storage). In this case, the resources to enter into the volume tiering table to calculate RVUs are the total terabytes of storage being managed by IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition.

Units to order

RVUs are calculated based upon the following volume tiering table and are rounded up to the next whole number.

Value Unit Exhibit 027 (VUE027A)

Cumulative       Total            RVUs per         RVUs

Products may also have program-specific licensing terms, which are described later in this document. Consult the program-specific licensing terms to determine total licensing requirements for the applicable products.

Pricing scenario for InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition

Transaction 1

Assume customer ABC is starting off by setting up an InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition cluster with 10 machines and plans to store 3 terabytes of data per machine in the cluster. The total terabytes are entered into the volume tiering table to get RVU to order. In this case, there are 30 chargeable terabytes.

RVUs required

Total RVUs to order to entitle ABC's environment for the 30 terabytes are determined as follows:

RVU metric       Total            RVUs per         RVU required
                 terabytes        terabytes        (A) x (B)
                 (A)              (B)

13-32 terabytes  18               0.84             15.12
33-64 terabytes  -                0.61              0.00
65-100           -                0.46              0.00
 terabytes
101-250          -                0.38              0.00
 terabytes
251+ terabytes   -                0.30              0.00
Total resources  30               -                 -
Total RVUS       -                -                27.12

Total RVUs to order (rounded up) 28

Customer ABC would order 28 RVUs to entitle their environment for the 30 terabytes managed.

Transaction 2

In Phase 2, customer ABC looks to increase the terabytes managed on the cluster that they had already installed InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition on. They will add another 1 terabyte of data on each of the 10 machines in the cluster. The new total of terabytes managed in customer ABC's environment would be the previous 30 plus 10 incremental for a new total of 40 terabytes.

The new total of RVUs required to entitle their environment would be calculated as follows:

RVU metric       Total            RVUs per         RVUs
                 terabytes        terabytes        required

 resources
New total RVUS   -                -                 33.68

Total RVUs required to entitle new environment (rounded up) 34

Previous or existing RVU entitlements from first transaction (28)

Total RVUs to order 6

Customer ABC would need to order an additional 6 RVUs to entitle their new total of 40 terabytes.

Note that the discount for the new storage is greater based on existing RVU entitlement.

Transaction 3

In Phase 3, customer ABC looks to increase the terabytes managed by InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition to 140 terabytes. They will add another 50 machines in the cluster, and a 100 terabytes of additional data. The new total terabytes managed in the ABC's environment would be the previous 40 plus 100 terabytes which equals 140 terabytes.

The new total of RVUs required to entitle their environment would be calculated as follows:

RVU metric       Total            RVUs per         RVUs
                 terabytes        terabytes        required

Total RVUs required to entitle new environment (rounded up) 81

Existing RVU entitlements from previous transactions (34)

Total RVUs to order 47

Customer ABC would need to order an additional 47 RVUs to entitle their new total of 140 terabytes managed.

Statement of good security practices

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.
