Overview

Top rule

IBM® Hybrid Data Management Platform enables you to collect, manage and provide business insights to data across on-premises, in private and public cloud, or integrated across structured and unstructured data types. With this simplified packaging and licensing offering, you can purchase IBM FlexPoints and allocate towards multiple resources with a single subscription. FlexPoints can be instantly purchased and transferred to easily add and switch entitlements from a convenient single sign-on dashboard. Now you can dynamically allocate data resources where you need it, when you need it.

For this offering, FlexPoints are sold as a monthly subscription charge with flexible billing options. This offering is available directly through an IBM seller, partner reseller or online through the IBM marketplace.

IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform includes the ability to deploy to the following selected offerings, which share a common SQL engine:

  • IBM Db2® Advanced Enterprise Server Edition: Inclusive of all Db2 features - provides advanced data management and analytics capabilities for both transactional and warehousing workloads.
  • IBM Db2 Warehouse: A client-managed, private cloud data warehouse for Docker container supported infrastructures.
  • IBM Db2 Big SQL: An enterprise SQL on Hadoop engine for complex analytics and data virtualization

To facilitate event-driven data processing and analysis and support emerging applications, an additional product is included:

  • IBM Db2 Event Store: In-memory database optimized for event-driven data processing and analysis.

To enable the journey to cloud, the Hybrid Data Management Platform also allows deployment to the following IBM Cloud™ Service offerings:

  • IBM Db2 Hosted: Advanced capabilities of IBM Db2 with the agility of a cloud deployment, all under your control.
  • IBM Db2 on Cloud: A fully-managed SQL cloud database. Easily deploy and scale on demand.
  • IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud: An elastic cloud data warehouse built for high-performance analytics

For all the IBM Cloud Service offerings that are part of the IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform, a base allocation of memory and storage is provided based on the number of VPCs deployed. Clients can expand the amount of storage and memory allocated for the service.

Note: The offering previously described as the IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform (Program ID number 5737-F85, see Software Announcement 218-056, dated January 09, 2018) has been renamed to the IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform On-premises.

In addition to the announcement of the new IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform, IBM is enhancing the flexibility of the IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform On-premises offering to allow clients to allocate FlexPoints for deployments of Db2 Advanced Enterprise Server Edition as an Authorized User specifically in support of SAP Applications. When FlexPoints are allocated as an Authorized User, the Licensee's Authorized Users may only use Db2 Advanced Enterprise Server Edition through an SAP Application. An SAP Application is defined as an application which is available and licensed from the SAP Company. The total number of Authorized Users shall be determined based on the number of chargeable SAP Named Users according to SAP's licensing and accounting rules.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, 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.
