IBM Storwize V7000 Software

IBM Storwize V7000 Software V6.1.0 features the same functionality and capabilities of the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller Storage Software V6.1.0. For further information about the new software capabilities introduced on the SVC Storage Software, refer to SVC V6.1 Software Announcement ZP10-0449, dated October 07, 2010 .

For further information about the IBM Storwize V7000 hardware, refer to IBM Storwize V7000 Hardware Announcement ZG10-0340, dated October 07, 2010 110-220, (RFA53618) dated October 7, 2010.

IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software (5639-VM1)

Each IBM Storwize V7000 (2076-112/124) Disk Control Enclosure and each IBM Storwize V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosure (2076-212/224) uses the IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software, 5639-VM1. A quantity of one 5639-VM1 IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software license is required for each enclosure, whether control or expansion enclosure. For example, a IBM Storwize V7000 order consisting of one control enclosure and three expansion enclosures requires a quantity of four enclosures of the IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software license, 5639-VM1.

IBM Storwize V7000 External Virtualization Software (5639-EV1)

Each IBM Storwize V7000 (2076-112/124) 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, the user licenses the IBM Storwize V7000 External Virtualization Software, 5639-EV1. You will need to license the number of storage enclosures attached externally to the IBM Storwize V7000. IBM Storwize V7000 (2076-112/124) Disk Control Enclosures and IBM Storwize V7000 Disk Expansion Enclosures (2076-212/224) are not included in this External Virtualization license.

A storage enclosure externally managed by IBM Storwize V7000 is defined as an independently powered, channel attached device that stores data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, 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 solid-state) drives or the expansion chassis that house additional disk (or solid-state) drives for the purpose of expanding the total capacity of the storage system. If there exists 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 two enclosures to an IBM Storwize V7000 consisting of one control enclosure and three expansion enclosures, then you will need a license for two enclosures of the IBM Storwize V7000 external virtualization software, 5639-EV1.

IBM Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RM1)

To authorize use of Remote Copy capabilities of the IBM Storwize V7000, you must purchase a license for IBM Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring Software (5639-RM1) for each licensed enclosure managed by the IBM Storwize V7000 Disk System, including each internal enclosure licensed with the IBM Storwize V7000 Base Software (5639-VM1) and each external enclosure licensed with the IBM Storwize V7000 External Virtualization Software (5639-EV1).

For example, if you have a DS5020 consisting of two enclosures managed by a IBM Storwize V7000 consisting of one control enclosure and three expansion enclosures, then in order to authorize remote mirroring for this configuration, you will need a license to the IBM Storwize V7000 Remote Mirroring Software, 5639-RM1, for a quantity of six enclosures.

IBM Storwize V7000 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack is an excellent complimentary product for use with IBM Storwize V7000. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides IP-based replication of Windows and Linux data, as well as advanced data protection and near-instant recovery for critical Windows and Linux servers and applications when used with the IBM Storwize V7000 system.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack allows enables protection, replication, and recovery of data for critical applications, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SAP, DB2 and Oracle. It delivers the power to quickly recover any Microsoft, Windows, or Linux server data, anywhere in the organization, from any point in time. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack provides a cost-effective, comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery solution for small and mid-sized organizations.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack combines a number of leading-edge and patented technologies to deliver a data protection and recovery solution for servers and applications. It helps eliminate the need for traditional backup windows by continuously tracking data changes at the block level, with extremely low overhead on the systems it protects. Its flexible policy engine helps improve recovery service levels and meet stringent data protection and retention requirements.

The IP-based replication technology in IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack allows administrators to select which volumes to replicate and schedule when to send the data over the WAN or Internet, enabling IP replication capabilities for IBM Storwize V7000 and effective disaster recovery capabilities without straining existing bandwidth.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack excels in its recovery capabilities. With IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack, it's easy to extract any file or application object (such as an e-mail) from the stored data blocks of any stored snapshot. Administrators can mount a snapshot virtually to a drive letter or mount point, allowing validation of the backup data and file-level and folder-level restore. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack even makes volume restore more efficient by providing several ways to restore data. In addition to traditional volume restores, IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack has a near instant restore feature that can dramatically reduce recovery times. Near instant restore lets users use data on the same disk where the volume is being restored while the restore operation is still in progress. This means the administrator can allow instant access to data for users, while the restore occurs in the background. Users can see and access information, which signals to the restore process to make this information a priority, while data not being used is restored later in the process. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack file system view into the backup repository allows click-drag-drop recovery of any file or folder, greatly simplifying the ease of recovery.

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.

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) agreement applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

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 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
