Description
Bottom rule

Each IBM Flex System V7000 Control Enclosure and each IBM Flex System V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosure uses the IBM Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000.

IBM Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000 V7 improves scalability and performance.

By using Easy Tier on volumes enabled with Real-time Compression , Real-time Compression and Easy Tier combine together for high performance and high efficiency at the same time.

Increases to system scalability:

All of these increases allow the IBM Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000 to handle larger configurations with more hosts using more volumes with more virtual machines. An I/O group is a unit of scaling.

Auto renewal registration of software maintenance for Flex System V7000 (Feature number 9000)

Software maintenance renewals for Flex System V7000 software, IBM Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000 5766-NX7, IBM Flex System V7000 Remote Mirroring Software 5766-RX7, IBM Flex System V7000 External Virtualization Software 5766-EV7, and IBM Flex System V7000 Realtime Compression Software 5766-CX7, are available via a services contract. Selecting feature number 9000 with the software maintenance registration ordered with Product ID (PID 5766-NX7, PID 5766-RX7, PID 5766-EV7, or PID 5766-CX7) indicates the desire to continue software maintenance on a services contract at the end of the initial software maintenance term.

License metric definitions

Storage Device: Storage Device is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Storage Device is an independently powered, channel-attached device that stores or controls the storage of data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate Storage Devices. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Storage Device which runs, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the Program and for every Storage Device on which the program is installed.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are 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.

The customer is responsible for ensuring they renew their SWMA coverage for all licensed features and capacities before expiration. Restarting SWMA after expiration will incur a higher charge for that renewal.

These programs have 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.

License Information form number

GI13-2809-03 License information for IBM Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000 V7.1

On or near the planned availability date, the current License Information documents will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

Limited warranty applies

Yes

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

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).

Passport Advantage® applies

No

Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) for a period of 12 months from the date of acquisition, providing a streamlined way to acquire IBM software and assure technical support coverage for all licenses. Extending coverage for a total of five years from date of acquisition may be elected.

While your Software Subscription and Support is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Handbook at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

Software Subscription and Support does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.

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.
