Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Storwize Family Software V7.2 provides software-defined storage capabilities across a variety of platforms including SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000 (Unified), Flex System V7000, Storwize V5000, and Storwize V3700 and V3500. These offerings help customers reduce the complexities and cost of managing their storage through:

IBM Storwize Family Software V7.2 introduces replication over IP networks that is easy to configure in existing IP infrastructures. This is a lower-cost alternative to the Fibre Channel-based and FCoE-based replication, eliminating the need for FCIP routers and dark fibre. By placing the IP replication function in the Storwize Family Software, server CPU and management overhead is freed up, and a single point of replication control is available for all server types. This release also includes SAS migration capability for the Storwize V5000, Storwize V3700, and Storwize V3500.

Enhanced stretched cluster for SAN Volume Controller optimizes inter-site networking and enables planned site failover. Remote mirroring and VMware environments will benefit from support for VMware 5.5 and being a provider for the vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA).

IBM Storwize Family Software version 7.2 includes:

Revised licensing rules for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression Software (5639-CP7)

Rather than purchasing a license for Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CP7) for every licensed enclosure (internal and external) managed by the IBM Storwize V7000 Disk system as required when first released, some customers will benefit from the following modifications to the 5639-CP7 licensing rules:

Under this Storwize Family Software V7.2 revision, to authorize use of Real-time Compression capabilities of the IBM Storwize V7000, you must purchase a license for Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CP7) for each licensed enclosure managed by the IBM Storwize V7000 Disk System, including each internal enclosure licensed with Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 base software (5639-VM7) and each external enclosure licensed with Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 External Virtualization (5639-EV7), up to a maximum number of three enclosure licenses for each Storwize V7000 Control enclosure.

This change applies to new software transactions and new software maintenance renewals and reinstatements only. If customers have already purchased a greater quantity of software licenses for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CP7) than required under this change, they should contact their sales representative to adjust the licensing to ensure they renew with the appropriate software maintenance license quantity as part of their next transaction. Some customers will have an automatic renewal of software maintenance applied to their account. It is the customer's responsibility to take advantage of this change in licensing requirements and to remove the automatic renewal (if desired) and to review the renewal statement to ensure any needed change in license quantity is made. This change does not entitle customers to any refunds for software licensing.

The following are examples of how to license Real-time Compression (5639-CP7) under the modified licensing rules:

Scenario 1: You have a four-enclosure Storwize V7000 system made up of one control enclosure and three expansion enclosures with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has four 5639-VM7 licenses. The Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression licensing would be a total of three 5639-CP7 licenses required.
Scenario 2: You have a five-enclosure Storwize V7000 system made up of two control enclosures and three expansion enclosures with nothing externally virtualized, therefore it has five 5639-VM7 licenses. The existence of two control enclosures moves the maximum license quantity up to six, therefore the Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression licensing would be a total of five 5639-CP7 licenses required.
Scenario 3: You have a five-enclosure Storwize V7000 system made up of two control enclosures and three expansion enclosures, managing a DS5020 consisting of three enclosures, therefore it has five 5639-VM7 licenses and three 5639-EV7 licenses. The existence of two control enclosures moves the maximum license quantity up to six, therefore the Storwize Family Software for Storwize V7000 Real-time Compression licensing would be a total of six 5639-CP7 licenses required, even though the total number of enclosures in the configuration is eight.

Revised licensing rules for Flex System V7000 Real-time Compression Software (5639-CM7)

Rather than purchasing a license for Storwize Family Software for Flex System V7000 Real-time Compression (5639-CM7) for every licensed enclosure (internal and external) managed by the IBM Storwize V7000 Disk system as required when first released, some customers will benefit from the following modifications to the 5639-CM7 licensing rules:

New orders for Storwize Family Software

For new Storwize Family Software V7 program number orders, first order the appropriate hardware for the initial system or cluster, then order the Storwize Family Software license.
Note: Real-time Compression , External Virtualization, Remote Mirroring software product identifiers are optional, and are ordered along with or where there is already a complete Storwize Family system, like the SAN Volume Controller 2145 or the Storwize V7000 2076 hardware, in place with the appropriate required Storwize Family software license for that system.

License metric definition

For SVC:

Terabyte (T/TB)

1 TB of managed storage = 2 to the power of 40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes, trillion bytes.

For Storwize V7000, Flex System V7000, and Storwize V5000:

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. Instead of the entitlements required for the Program directly, Licensee must obtain entitlements for this Program sufficient to cover the Storage Devices managed by the Program.

A storage device is equivalent to an enclosure, the term used most often when describing the Storwize Family Software product licensing and usage.

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, IBM International Passport Advantage 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. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage , where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

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.

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

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
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).

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 (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) 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.

Other terms
Volume orders (IVO)

Yes. Contact your IBM representative.

Passport Advantage applies

Yes, and through the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage
Usage restriction

SVC standard software (5641-VC7):

This program (5641-VC7) is licensed on a per-terabyte (with cumulative tiers) site-wide capacity basis. (Refer to the Ordering information section for information on charges for this program.) Users may only install this program on IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller 2145-CF8, 2145-8G4, 2145-8A4, 2145-8F4, and 2145-8F2 Storage Engines, or subsequent IBM replacements of these.

Customers are licensed to use this program only to manage storage capacity within a single site, and only for the amount of storage capacity within that site for which they have received proper authorization from IBM . Customers must obtain a separate license for any additional sites within which they want to use SAN Volume Controller Software V7 (5641-VC7) and obtain separate capacity authorizations for each such site. The 5641-VC7 site license subsumes and supersedes all individual 5639-VC1, 5639-VC2, 5639-VCT, 5639-VC3, 5639-VC4, 5639-VC5, and 5639-VC6 licenses previously in effect at that site.

A customer's right to use the IBM FlashCopy for SAN Volume Controller and Metro/Global Mirror for SAN Volume Controller features of this program is also limited to the amount of authorizations obtained from IBM . The authorizations for FlashCopy and for Metro/Global Mirror cannot exceed the total capacity authorization for the amount of managed storage on all clusters within the site. Use of FlashCopy features requires license authorizations for only the FlashCopy sources, not the targets.

Use of Metro/Global Mirror features requires license authorizations for both the Metro/Global Mirror source and target capacities in use. Use of the Metro/Global Mirror feature between clusters located in different sites requires separate authorization for each site.

This program is only supported for use with host servers, storage sub-systems, and SAN configurations identified by IBM as being supported for attachment to the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller. This program is provided together with code provided under separate license agreements, including, but not limited to, open source license agreements.

Storwize V7000

The following Program Unique Terms apply. This program is licensed for use with the IBM Storwize V7000 system with which the program was delivered, and only to manage the capacity specified in the proof of entitlement document for that license. A separate license is required for each IBM Storwize V7000 storage enclosure. The following paragraph titled "Disabling device" applies to the use of the IBM Storwize V7000 Software components. The term "Program" in these paragraphs shall mean the IBM Storwize V7000 Software components.

Disabling device: The Program may include a disabling device that will prevent certain features from being used. You will not tamper with such disabling device or otherwise change the Program.

Transferability: The Program 5639-VM7 is nontransferable between IBM Storwize V7000 systems and is only to be used on the IBM Storwize V7000 system for which it was purchased. If the system is transferred to a new owner, the program license transfers with the system. However, Software Maintenance does not transfer, and a new maintenance agreement must be purchased by the new owner.

For additional information, refer to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Software Subscription and Support applies

Yes. Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance), is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this announcement is provided by the Software Subscription and Support offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option.

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.

For additional information about the Passport Advantage Agreement, visit the Passport Advantage website at

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

All distributed software licenses include Software Subscription and Support 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 three years from date of acquisition, may be elected.

Variable charges apply

No

Educational allowance available

Yes. A 15% education allowance applies to qualified education institution customers.

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.
