Description
Bottom rule

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager V8.2, specifically the capabilities delivered via the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager unified management platform, includes:

  • Lifecycle management (asset discovery and inventory, software distribution, patch management, operating system deployment, remote control)
  • Security and compliance (security configuration management, vulnerability management, patch management, anti-virus and anti-malware client management, network self-quarantine)
  • Patch management
  • Power management
  • Software use analysis
  • Core protection

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager V8.2 further extends its flexible deployment model by leveraging directory services for streamlined provisioning and management of console operator accounts. Integration with external identity management providers enables the creation of operator accounts based on group membership. Permissions are easier to manage through roles, which can be assigned directly to individual users or to Active Directory or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) groups.

The ability to provision users as local users without Active Directory or LDAP integration is maintained to provide ultimate flexibility. Password policies, such as password length and complexity, can be enforced to protect the security of local user accounts. When users upgrade, existing console operator accounts will automatically be migrated to local user accounts to facilitate a seamless transition to IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager V8.2.

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager V8.2 for Core Protection is a reversioning change of IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Core Protection V10.5 and has the same program number (5725-D25).

Product benefits:

  • Helps to protect physical and virtual endpoints from damage caused by viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, rootkits, web threats, and their new variants.
  • Helps to reduce business disruptions that can result from endpoint infection, identity theft, data loss, network downtime, lost productivity, and violations of internal IT policies.

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager unified management platform is made up of four components, which create a lightweight communications fabric for continuous delivery and enforcement of a vast array of third-party enterprise security and system management services. The four components are the endpoint agent, server, policy messages (fixlets), and relays.

Endpoint Agent

The Endpoint Agent is the "brain" of the Tivoli Endpoint Manager platform. Continuously assessing the endpoint and enforcing policy, regardless of connectivity, this single, multi-purpose agent represents a departure from traditional client-server architectures and powers a resilient distributed intelligent infrastructure.

Server

The Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server component can manage up to 250,000 agents without requiring advanced resource configuration for the hardware server it will be installed on. You can use available commercial lower end hardware servers to install and run Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server even when the managed environment consists of 250,000 targets. When needed, scalability for environments over 250,000 endpoints is provided via a multi-server architecture.

Policy Messages

Policy Messages, also known as IBM Fixlet® messages, communicate policy information between agents and server environments. Policy Messages can contain logical criteria to trigger specific actions, for example, if vulnerability X exists on this client, update software module Y with the appropriate package. Additionally, you can use the Policy Messages included with the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager, which are delivered through the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager content delivery service, or you customize your own:

  • Open architecture that allows users to easily create their own policies
  • Secure authentication and audit trail

Relays

Relays act as communication and aggregation points and staging areas for Policy Messages and patch and remediation content. Relays help reduce network bandwidth requirements and provide an added degree of fault tolerance for the management systems. Relays can be installed on existing hardware, including desktops and multi-purpose systems such as file or print servers. No dedicated hardware is required.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

The hardware requirements for IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager solution can vary based on the managed environment and are mainly related to the machine on which the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server and the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console will be installed and running.

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager server hardware specifications

The values listed below are recommended hardware specifications that provide good performance for similar sized deployments of IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager. If your deployment will have over 100 IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console Operators, you should consider raising your hardware specifications to the next higher scale to support the large number of users or contact IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Technical Support for more help in selecting hardware.

For best performance, use the following recommendations:

Deployment
size        CPU                   Memory     Hard disks

< 250       2-3 GHz                2 GB      Standard HD
1,000       2-3 GHz - 2 Cores      4 GB      1 RAID Array (RAID 10, 5)
10,000      2-3 GHz - 2-4 Cores    8 GB      1-2 RAID Arrays (RAID 10)
50,000      2-3 GHz - 4 Cores     16 GB      2 RAID Arrays (RAID 10)
100,000     2-3 GHz - 4-8 Cores   16-32 GB   2 RAID Arrays (RAID 10)
> 200,000   2-3+ GHz - 8-16 Cores 32-64 GB   3 RAID Arrays (RAID 10)

Note: RAID arrays must support your using the disk cache for both reading and writing. The disk cache should be set to 50/50 read write.

Disk space requirements

The hard disk configurations listed above are focused on providing high performance disks for the database and IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server. The physical capacity needed for IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager is generally considered very small. A minimum of 5 GB free disk space is needed by the database, data files, and the file caches to run IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager. It is recommended that an additional 20 GB to 50 GB of disk space be available for flexibility, when using for administrative tasks such as database backups and to allow for growth.

Multiple RAID arrays normally provide more than enough disk space for IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager so capacity concerns are not common.

Network card specifications

The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server is the central communication hub of a IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager deployment and should be positioned in a data center with a high-speed network connection.

Server network speed recommendations:

  • 10 Mbps network connection is possible but not recommended for performance reasons.
  • 100 Mbps network connection, or higher is recommended.
  • 1000 Mbps network connection is recommended if possible.

For deployments over 25,000 seats, consider using teamed network cards or 1 GB connections to provide optimal network throughput for the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server.

Console hardware specifications

IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Consoles are typically installed on personal workstations and Terminal Servers or Citrix Servers.

  • Users with high-speed network connections (10 Mbps+) to the IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Server database can use any computer that meets the requirements below.
  • Remote users will typically need to use a Terminal Server or Citrix Server because their network connection is too slow.

The hardware requirements are based on the number of managed computers, which is the number of computers that a IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console Operator will see in their IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console. In most deployments, a IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console Operator will see a subset of the total number of computers while a master IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console Operator will see all of the computers.

< 250   2-3 GHz-2 Cores    2 GB     1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-5 GB free
1,000   2-3 GHz-2 Cores    4 GB     1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-10 GB free
10,000  2-3 GHz-4 Cores    8 GB     1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-20 GB free
25,000  2-3 GHz-4 Cores    8-16 GB  1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-40 GB free
100,000 2-3 GHz-4-8 Cores  16-32 GB 1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-80 GB free
200,000 2-3 GHz-8-16 Cores 16-32 GB 1 Raid Array (RAID 5, 10)-150 GB free

Note: The values above reflect the number of simultaneous IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Consoles running on a single Terminal Server or Citrix Server, which means a single server can support many more IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console Operators in total depending on IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console usage patterns. Consider using more than one Terminal Server or Citrix Server if you will have more simultaneous users then the values listed here.

Important note: For larger deployments that expect over 50,000 IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Agents or over 50 IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager Console operators, consult an IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager deployment specialist for specific recommendations on Terminal Server and Citrix Server configurations.

Licensing metric definitions and pricing examples
Bottom rule

Client Device

Client Device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A Client Device is a single user computing device or special purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Client Device which runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

RVU is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. RVU Proofs of Entitlement (PoEs) are based on the number of units of a specific resource used or managed by the program. Licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the resources managed by the program. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the number of RVUs required for licensee's environment for the specific resources as specified in the resource table found in the program's announcement and/or license Information document. RVU entitlements are specific to the program and the type of resource and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with RVU entitlements of another program or resource.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other licenses or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.

As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes.

Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlement(s) for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.

Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data, or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch-over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.

Pricing examples

The resource for the purpose of the RVU calculation is Activated Processor Cores managed by the program. An Activated Processor Core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions. Licensee can deploy the program using either full capacity licensing or virtualization capacity (sub-capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (refer to the website below). If using full capacity licensing, each Activated Processor Core in the physical hardware environment managed by the program must be counted, except for those servers from which the program permanently no longer manages. If using virtualization capacity licensing, the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

defines how many Activated Processor Cores must be counted.

The RVU table for Tivoli Endpoint Manager is below:

Tier   From quantity   To quantity   Factor
 
 1            0          2,500       1.00
 2        2,501         10,000       0.80
 3       10,001         50,000       0.60
 4       50,001        150,000       0.40
 5      150,001        -             0.20

Pricing example 1

A customer wishes to license Tivoli Endpoint Manager for the servers in the following core environment:

Distributed servers

  • 20 one processor, single core servers
  • 65 one processor, dual core servers
  • 12 two processor, dual core servers
  • 10 two processor, quad core servers
  • One eight processor, dual core server with two virtual or logical partitions
  • One four processor, quad core server
  • One z800 server with two uniprocessor IFLs running Linux (also known as "Linux on System z")

Note: Linux on System z offerings may not be available for all Tivoli products. This licensing example assumes such availability. Linux on System z offerings have distinctly orderable part numbers in Passport Advantage, which should be used when ordering entitlements for IFLs running Linux.

If pricing products without a Linux on System z offering, you should exclude the z800 server entitlement requirement indicated below.

The customer wants to manage the applicable distributed server environment with Tivoli Endpoint Manager:

Systems               Quantity in              Processor cores
managed               customer environment     to be licensed
 
One processor,        20                        20

Total processors to                            312
 be licensed

Based on the 312 managed cores, the customer would require 312 RVUs of Tivoli Endpoint Manager.

Pricing example 2

A customer wishes to license Tivoli Endpoint Manager in the following core environment:

  • Servers with 45,000 managed cores
  • 25,000 Client Devices

The following calculation is used to determine the number of RVUs required to license the 45,000 managed cores in the server environment.

Tier         Quantity of managed cores   RVUs
 
1             2,500                       2,500
2             7,500                       6,000
3            35,000                      21,000
 
Total                                    29,500

The first tier based on the RVU table is used to calculate the first 2,500 managed cores at a factor of 1 per core or in the case above 2,500 RVUs (2,500 x 1.) The second tier is used to calculate the managed cores from 2,501 to 10,000 at a .8 factor or (7,500 x .8 = 6,000). The third tier is used for those managed cores between 10,001 and 50,000. In the example, 35,000 of the managed cores reside in tier 3 or (35,000 x .6 = 21,000). Adding the RVUs together for each tier, the customer requires 29,500 RVUs to license the 45,000 managed cores.

In addition, the customer would require 25,000 of the client device part number to license the 25,000 client devices in the environment.

Pricing example 3

A customer wishes to license Tivoli Endpoint Manager in the following core environment:

  • 40 virtual images running on 4 managed cores

The following calculation is used to determine the number of RVUs required to license the 40 virtual images running on 4 managed cores in the server environment.

Tier        Quantity of Managed Cores   RVUs
 
1           4                           4
 
Total                                   4

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
