Overview
Bottom rule

Power Systems offers a range of solutions for big data, from entry level for dedicated Hadoop infrastructures with the IBM Solution for Hadoop Power Systems Edition to enterprise solutions with the IBM Data Engine for Analytics - Power Systems Edition, which is capable of hosting multiple Hadoop tenants along with traditional analytics workloads. The IBM Elastic Storage Server, a building block for big data, is included in the IBM Data Engine for Analytics or can be purchased independently. It is a building block for big data.

IBM Data Engine for Analytics is for clients looking for an enterprise, turn-key solution capable of hosting multiple instances of Hadoop along with traditional data analytics. It is a customized big data and analytics infrastructure solution with integrated software that is easy to deploy for fast time to value. It enables flexible and adjustable storage and compute node to align the infrastructure with specific line of business (LOB) needs. It also incorporates efficient design to reduce the amount of infrastructure needed for big data and analytics workloads.

Rapid deployment

IBM Data Engine for Analytics is easy to deploy with a complete infrastructure with preloaded software that is preassembled and tested prior to being delivered. Once on-site, services are provided for performing a final health check at the customer's site. Intelligent cluster management and automation are also included in IBM Data Engine for Analytics to enable fast deployment of big data and analytics workloads and to support ongoing infrastructure management.

Flexibility

IBM Data Engine for Analytics integrates infrastructure services into the solution that simplifies supporting and managing workloads for multiple tenants. This allows IT to be responsive to the needs of the business without incurring unnecessary overhead.

IBM Data Engine for Analytics also enables adjustable resource allocation to meet the varying requirements for big data and analytics workloads whether they are compute intensive, storage intensive, or more balanced in nature. This flexibility is designed to enable the infrastructure to meet diverse workload requirements and LOB demands.

As business needs change and grow, the IBM Data Engine for Analytics is designed to scale and extend for additional big data and analytics workloads to address new LOB requirements and support new business imperatives.

Efficiency

Leveraging IBM's GPFS Storage Server, IBM Data Engine for Analytics is designed to provide significant infrastructure savings by delivering high reliability and optimization tailored specifically for big data and analytics workloads so minimal to no data duplication is required. This is in stark contrast to traditional Hadoop infrastructures that require a minimum of three copies of data be stored.

This coupled with the superior performance of POWER8 servers is designed to require less infrastructure, making significant savings in maintenance possible over the life of the solution.

IBM Data Engine for Analytics also lays the foundation for consolidating big data and analytics workloads onto one infrastructure. This not only simplifies management, it also enables traditional data analytics to be coupled with unstructured data analytics to yield more comprehensive and valuable business insights.

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX® 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24x7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support website at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.

Products -- terms and conditions

Warranty period

Three years on hardware.

One year on software.

Implemented as follows:

For information on the software terms and conditions, refer to the latest announcement for these products:

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Warranty services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

Non-IBM parts service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their clients, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Service and Support for the 5146 solution is sold and delivered with one point of contact into IBM for hardware support. This one point of contact, often called a hardware single point of entry (HW SPOE) provides access to the service and support for all of the hardware components included in the 5146 solution.

The 5146 solution has a machine type and model number along with a unique serial number that when combined is used as the identifier for the hardware single point of entry. This identifier will enable initial entitlement for support and can remain the SPOE solution identifier for all included hardware components that comprise the solution when they remain on an IBM service agreement, such as IBM ServiceElite.

Warranty service upgrades

During the warranty period, warranty service upgrades provide an enhanced level of On-site Service for an additional charge. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. See the Warranty services section for additional details.

IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose. The following on-site response-time objectives are available as warranty service upgrades for your machine. Available offerings are:

Maintenance services

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of maintenance service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type.

Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, clients are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.

Licensed machine code

IBM Machine Code is licensed for use by a customer on the IBM machine for which it was provided by IBM under the terms and conditions of the IBM License Agreement for Machine Code, to enable the machine to function in accordance with its specifications, and only for the capacity authorized by IBM and acquired by the customer. You can obtain the agreement by contacting your IBM representative or visiting

http://www.ibm.com/servers/support/machine_warranties/machine_code.html

Access to Machine Code updates is conditioned on entitlement and license validation in accordance with IBM policy and practice. IBM may verify entitlement through customer number, serial number, electronic restrictions, or any other means or methods employed by IBM in its discretion.

If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable machine code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated Machine Code changes as IBM specifies. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install downloadable machine code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Machine Code License Acceptance Requirement

Acceptance-By-Use Machine: No, the 8247-22L and 8247-21L LIC license requires signed acceptance by the machine's end user directly with IBM, applicable to orders for a new machine, machine type conversion MES, and to machines transferred to another user.
