IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition

Migration of IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition V4.x products to IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition V5.2 is now available by ordering a trade-up part number through Passport Advantage.

The functions that were only available as part of the IBM Virtual Storage Center offering have been combined with IBM Spectrum Control Standard Edition and are delivered as IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition V5.2.

The entitlement of IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition (5608-WC0) does not include using Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5.2.x, IBM Spectrum Control Standard Edition V5.2.x, or IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition V5.2.x.

IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition V4.x product licenses can be traded in exchange for IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition entitlements. This trade-up needs to be ordered in identical quantities to the new IBM Spectrum Control Advanced Edition V5.2 license offerings as described below.

If you have software entitlement that is not in Passport Advantage, the movement of entitlement may be initiated by you through your IBM representative.

Ordering these trade-up part numbers does not require current software subscription and support for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Standard Edition (5608-WC0). There is no need for reinstatements prior to ordering these trade-up part numbers.

IBM Virtual Storage Center Entry Edition

IBM Virtual Storage Center Entry uses a per terabyte pricing model. Use is supported in storage environments using less than or equal to four I/O groups for the SAN Volume Controller machine type 2145 Storage Virtualization engines, and 500 terabytes or less managed storage capacity per enterprise.

A new feature code in the AAS ordering system will make it possible to order more than 250 terabytes. This new feature code will order the quantity of 250 TB of entitlements with the same price as 250 times the existing feature code used to order 1 TB of entitlement for Virtual Storage Center Entry Edition.

Licensing metric definitions

Terabytes

Terabyte 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 Licensees 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.

Pricing example

IBM Virtual Storage Center Entry uses a per terabyte pricing model. Use is supported in storage environments using less than or equal to four I/O groups for the SAN Volume Controller machine type 2145 Storage Virtualization engines, and 500 terabytes or less managed storage capacity per enterprise.

A new feature code in the AAS ordering system will make it more possible to order more than 250 terabytes. This new feature code will order the quantity of 250 TB of entitlements with the same price as 250 times the existing feature code which can be used to order 1 TB of entitlement for Virtual Storage Center Entry Edition.

Example 1:

A customer is planning to virtualize 150 TB of storage using Virtual Storage Center. The existing AAS feature code will need to be ordered 150 times.

Example 2:

A customer is planning to virtualize 350 TB of storage using Virtual Storage Center Entry Edition. The new feature code will need to be ordered 1 time for 250 TB and in addition the existing feature code will need to be ordered 100 times, so that a total of 350 TB of entitlements is achieved.

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 lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
