Description

Automated client updates from the Spectrum Protect Operations Center

Simplify client updates and lower administration costs with centralized and automated client updates from within the Spectrum Protect Operations Center. Administrators can centrally manage, automate, and schedule upgrades to Spectrum Protect Backup Archive clients.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier is a new offering that has lower pricing when choosing IBM Cloud Object Storage as a target for your backup and archive data. It applies to the IBM Spectrum Protect Suite back-end, capacity-based pricing and can be leveraged for both on-premises IBM Cloud Object Storage devices or public-based IBM Cloud Object Storage. Details can be found in the Pricing examples listed in the Charge metric section.

Cloud Object Storage Tiering

This feature enables administrators to set up two tiers of storage for container pools. The first tier is a fast, disk-based directory-container storage pool to meet fast ingest requirements at backup time, as well as stringent recovery time objectives for operational recovery. The second tier is an object storage cloud-container storage pool that enables a cost-effective storage target for longer-term retention requirements. The tiering is based on age of the data.

Resilient backups to cloud with self-throttling cloud storage streaming

When storing data in cloud storage, line impairment and latency can cause inconsistent write speeds. This can sometimes cause backup failures when storing data on cloud storage. With this new feature, Spectrum Protect can mitigate this problem by automatically throttling the ingest of data up or down to reduce the number of backup failures caused by variable write speeds to cloud storage.

Spectrum Protect server support for Linux x86_64 for Ubuntu

Running the Spectrum Protect server on the Linux x86_64 for Ubuntu platform enables you to leverage the advantages of using Ubuntu Linux in your overall data protection solution.

Note: This support does not include support for virtual or physical tape.

Licensing metric definitions

IBM Spectrum Protect for Data Retention (formerly IBM Tivoli System Storage® Archive Manager) terabyte capacity

IBM Spectrum Protect for Data Retention terabyte capacity includes primary disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized primary removable media storage used by the IBM Spectrum Protect for Data Retention server.

Capacity does not include:

  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk.
  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media.
  • Space used on the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager server for any purpose other than the primary storage of space-managed data.
  • Disk on the host being space managed.

A virtual tape library (VTL) is considered a removable media device, so capacity is based on utilization.

The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 terabyte.

Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of terabytes.

Additional capacity must be added in increments of 1 terabyte.

Tiered Decimal Terabytes (1-12), (13-32), (33-64), (65-100), (101-250), (251+)

Decimal Terabyte (1--12), Decimal Terabyte (13--32), Decimal Terabyte (33--64), Decimal Terabyte (65--100), Decimal Terabyte (101--250), and Decimal Terabyte (251+) is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. Proofs of Entitlement are based on the number of Decimal Terabytes available to the Program. A Decimal Terabyte is 10 to the 12th power bytes. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for Licensee's 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 the Program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the Program.

Tiered Terabytes (large) (1-100), (101-250), (251-500), (501-750), (751-1,250), (1,251-2,000), (2001+)

Terabyte (1--100), Terabyte (101--250), Terabyte (251--500), Terabyte (501--750), Terabyte (751--1250), Terabyte (1251--2000) and Terabyte (2000+) 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 Licensee's 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 the Program sufficient to cover the storage managed by the Program.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite (formerly IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery) Tiered Terabytes (large) capacity

For IBM Spectrum Protect Suite, Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for all data stored in the designated IBM Spectrum Protect primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated Tivoli Storage Manager FastBack® repository volumes and for all data managed by the IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Front End (formerly IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Suite for Unified Recovery - Front End) Tiered Terabytes (large) capacity

For IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Front End, licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for the aggregate amount of data protected by the program.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Archive Option terabyte capacity

Entitlements for the IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Archive Option component apply only to data classified as archive data within IBM Spectrum Protect that results from running an archive operation, and the data must reside on tape or VTL within the primary storage pool. An archive operation is designated either through IBM Spectrum Protect's user interface itself or through IBM Spectrum Protect's application programming interface (API). Data stored on virtual tape appears to IBM Spectrum Protect as physical tape. The IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Archive Option price applies to the capacity level recognized by IBM Spectrum Protect (which equates to the amount of data sent to the virtual tape). Subsequent deduplication of data within a VTL does not reduce the capacity level recognized by IBM Spectrum Protect.

Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements required for all data stored in the designated IBM Spectrum Protect primary storage pool volumes and for all data stored in the designated IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback repository volumes and for all data managed by the IBM Spectrum Protect Snapshot.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier terabyte capacity

Entitlements for the Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier component apply only to data stored either on-premises IBM Cloud Object Storage device or public-based IBM Cloud Object Storage. The Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier price applies to the capacity level recognized by Spectrum Protect.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - ProtecTIER Option terabyte capacity

Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements for the total aggregate usable physical capacity of all the IBM ProtecTIER repositories that are available to the IBM Spectrum Protect primary storage pool, excluding the capacity for disaster recovery sites used for replication only.

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 license 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 entitlements 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. In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files, or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

High availability and disaster recovery (HADR)

To use HADR to replicate from one IBM Spectrum Protect server (with IBM Db2 included) to another IBM Spectrum Protect server (with Db2 included), no additional Db2 licensing is required.

To use HADR to replicate from a IBM Spectrum Protect server (with bundled Db2) to a nonbundled Db2 instance, the licensee must purchase 100 Processor Value Units (PVUs) to obtain a license for Db2 Enterprise Edition (bundled).

Pricing examples

Pricing example for IBM Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier

Scenario 1

A client has Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier with 5 TB of data stored on-premises IBM Cloud Object Storage device. The client must purchase 5 TB of Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier.

Scenario 2

A client has Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier with 20 TB of data stored on a public-cased IBM Cloud Object Storage. The client must purchase 20 TB of Spectrum Protect Suite -- IBM Cloud Object Storage Tier.

Pricing examples for IBM Spectrum Protect

The following examples are provided to illustrate the client's licensing requirements.

References to processor-based licensing do not represent the actual number of entitlements required. Entitlement requirements are Value Unit based. Processors referenced in these examples represent the designated measurement on which the required number of Value Unit entitlements will be calculated. The number of Value Units required per processor will depend on the processor type.

Notes:

  • When using Processor Value Unit based licensing, license entitlements for IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition are required for all managed servers, including the managing server. Licensing entitlement is Processor Value Unit based and both full capacity and sub-capacity licensing are offered.
  • A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition is required to use any of the following functions: node replication (and the use of REPLICATE NODE command as a target server), disaster recovery manager, Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP), support of tape libraries (including virtual tape libraries) with more than 4 drives or more than 48 slots.
  • A IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition server can only be used to manage IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition components or clients.
  • A IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition server can act as a target server for disaster recovery purposes, with the exception of node replication, for IBM Spectrum Protect servers.
  • The use of node replication (REPLICATE NODE command) requires the same user entitlements for both the server that sends the data (source server) and the server that receives the data (target server).
  • IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition licensing requirements for General Parallel File System (GPFS™) and IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage require IBM Spectrum Protect entitlements for each node performing data movement.
  • Entitlement conversions to one of the IBM Spectrum Protect Suites requires entitlement of IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition. If there is entitlement of IBM Spectrum Protect, then a trade up to IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition is required as a precondition to the entitlement conversion.
  • All Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices that are being backed up require entitlement for IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition. If NDMP is used, then entitlement for IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition is required. If a proxy server or data mover is being used, then that server does not require additional entitlement.
  • A IBM Spectrum Protect for SAN entitlement is required for each IBM Spectrum Protect server that is sharing a library where a IBM Spectrum Protect acts as the library manager. An entitlement is required for each library client and library manager. A IBM Spectrum Protect for SAN license entitlement is required for each system that performs LAN-free operations.

Go to the Software requirements for more information about IBM Spectrum Protect for SAN.

  • Client Device entitlements for IBM Spectrum Protect and IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition are interchangeable.

Scenario 1: The client wants to do basic archiving and retrieval for all of the LAN-connected servers in its network. The customer environment consists of the following:

  • Twenty client devices (laptops)
  • Ten 4-way servers
  • Five 8-way mail servers
  • Five 16-way database servers
  • One 32-way server
  • One 8-way managing server

The client must obtain the following entitlements for IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition:

Note: This example is valid for any database application supported by IBM Spectrum Protect for Databases. IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition is required for each system with a database managed by IBM Spectrum Protect for Databases.

The client must obtain the following additional entitlements for IBM Spectrum Protect for Mail:

Systems managed Quantity in customer environment Total client device entitlements required
8-way 5 40
Total processor entitlements   40
Note: This example is valid for any mail application supported by IBM Spectrum Protect for Mail. IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition is required for each system with a mail server managed by IBM Spectrum Protect for Mail.

Scenario 2: VMware environment with VMware vStorage APIs for data protection

The client environment consists of the following:

  • ESX server 1 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as a Microsoft SQL server.
  • ESX server 2 with four virtual servers, three running as file servers, and the fourth running as a Microsoft Exchange server.
  • Both ESX servers are backed up using the VMware vStorage APIs from a proxy server.
  • Each virtual machine is assigned one processor core.
  • The client is backing up only the file servers.

Notes:

  • IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition full-capacity entitlement requires that all physical system cores on VMware ESX servers, being backed up by the proxy server, are to be entitled.

Pricing examples for IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows

Entitlement for IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows is based on the terabyte capacity being space managed (migrated). Capacity is defined as the primary HSM disk storage pool size combined with the amount of utilized HSM removable media storage pool. Storage pools are configured on the IBM Spectrum Protect server. The minimum amount of capacity that can be purchased is 1 TB. Partial capacity will be rounded up to the next whole number of terabyte. Additional capacity must be added in multiples of 1 TB. Capacity does not include:

  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on disk.
  • Copy storage pools for the space-managed data that reside on removable media .

Scenario 1

A client wants to space manage 4.25 TB of files from six Microsoft Windows file servers. This means 4.25 TB of files will be migrated from their current location to the IBM Spectrum Protect server's primary HSM storage pools. The migrated files will be replaced with references to the original file. The data in the primary HSM storage pools will be copied for off-site protection to a copy pool. The customer has designated 0.25 TB of disk for an HSM disk storage pool, 4 TB for a HSM removable media storage pool, and 6 TB of removable media for a copy storage pool.

The client needs to purchase 5 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows.

HSM disk storage pool HSM removable media storage pool Capacity Required entitlements
0.25 TB 4 TB 4.25 TB 5 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows

Scenario 2 (additional capacity)

Client had purchased 5 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows. Over the last 12 months, the client consumed the 5 TB of HSM capacity they purchased initially in addition to an additional 1 TB. Over the next 12 months, they expect the amount of space managed data will grow to 9 TB total. They will continue to keep the 0.25 TB for the HSM disk storage pool and, therefore, store the remaining 8.75 TB in the removable media storage pool.

The client should purchase an additional 4 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows.

HSM disk storage pool HSM removable media storage pool Capacity Required entitlements
0.25 TB 8.75 TB 9 TB 9 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect HSM for Windows

Pricing examples for IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments

Protecting VMware environments using IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments.

The client environment consists of the following:

  • vSphere (host) 1 with 12 virtual machines (guests)
  • vSphere (host) 2 with 19 virtual machines (guests)
  • All of the guests on both vSphere servers (hosts) are protected using IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments

Notes:

  • Either IBM Spectrum Protect or IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition are prerequisite products for IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments and require entitlement on all physical system cores on the vSphere hosts. This entitlement applies only to the VMware vSphere hosts protected by IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments.
  • IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments is physically installed on a centralized VMware vStorage backup server, which is a secondary or proxy machine that is used to perform the backup using the VMware vStorage application programming interface (API). This secondary or proxy machine can be either a physical machine or a virtual machine. A single VMware vStorage backup server can be used to protect one or more virtual machines that reside on one or more vSphere servers. The client can use one or more VMware vStorage backup servers.
  • Entitlements for IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments, IBM Spectrum Protect, and IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition are not required on the VMware vStorage backup server. IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environment, IBM Spectrum Protect, and IBM Spectrum Protect Extended Edition entitlements are only required for the managed environment, which is the processor cores on the VMware vSphere hosts running the virtual machines being protected.
  • IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments can also be licensed under sub-capacity software licensing terms, if required. Processor Value Unit (PVU) sub-capacity licensing lets you license an eligible software product for less than the full capacity (or total number of processors) of your server or group of servers. It provides the licensing granularity needed to leverage various multicore chip and virtualization technologies. The sub-capacity software licensing terms are documented in the International Passport Advantage Agreement (IPAA) Attachment for Sub-capacity Licensing Terms (Sub-capacity Licensing Attachment).
  • IBM Spectrum Protect for Virtual Environments sub-capacity entitlement requires that the virtual cores, assigned to virtual machines on VMware ESX servers being backed up by the proxy server, are to be entitled.

Pricing example for IBM Spectrum Protect Suite and IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Front End

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite and IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Front End use the same tiered terabyte pricing model. The model consists of seven tiers that are to be used cumulatively. All tiers must be used in order (begin with the first tier and move on to the second tier, and so on) to arrive at the desired total amount of terabytes.

IBM Spectrum Protect Suite - Front End measures capacity on protected data at the source, instead of using capacity at IBM Spectrum Protect primary storage pool on the backend.

Based on the actual terabyte tiers, the following example is an illustration, using variables for prices, that shows how to calculate the prices:

Tier TB range (actual) $K/TB
1-100 x

Statement of good security practices
Bottom 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.
