Overview

Top rule

Complementing the information in Hardware Announcement 119-027, dated September 12, 2019, for the IBM® z15 server, the following is delivered:

  • A new Technology Transition Offering (TTO) called Technology Update Pricing for the z15 (TU7)
  • One new (TC5) and two revised (TC4 and TC3) Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes TTOs for actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes (z/OS®), Country Multiplexes, and Loosely Coupled Complexes (z/TPF)

Technology Update Pricing for the z15 uses the reporting mechanisms and existing Millions of Service Units per hour (MSU) tiers of the Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC) or Country Multiplex License Charges (CMLC) pricing metrics while extending the software price-performance provided for the z15.

Four Technology Transition Offerings apply only to eligible z/OS and z/TPF operating systems and their associated middleware programs (see the Programs eligible for AWLC and CMLC section) when running in the following configurations:

  • On a stand-alone z15 server
  • In an aggregated z/OS Parallel Sysplex® or Country Multiplex, referred to as sysplex, with a z15 server
  • In an aggregated z/TPF Loosely Coupled Complex, which is referred to as a complex, with a z15 server

Benefits of Technology Update Pricing for the z15:

  • Reduces AWLC or CMLC pricing on the z15 as compared to AWLC or CMLC on the IBM z14™ or z13®, IBM zEnterprise® EC12 (zEC12), and IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) servers with greater than 3 MSUs.
  • Offers sub-capacity or full-capacity implementation.

If you are operating a single, stand-alone z15 server, you may elect Technology Update Pricing for the z15 or Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC) that are subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

If you are operating only z15 servers in an actively coupled z/OS Parallel Sysplex, Country Multiplex, or z/TPF Loosely Coupled Complex, you may elect aggregated Technology Update Pricing for the z15 or aggregated Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC). Both options are subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

Benefits of new and revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes:

  • Offers actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Country Multiplexes, and Loosely Coupled Complexes with different generations of server hardware technology partial benefits of Technology Update Pricing for the z15.
  • Offers sub-capacity or full-capacity implementation.

The Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC5) program provides a reduction in aggregated AWLC or CMLC as you upgrade to z15 servers within actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Country Multiplexes, or Loosely Coupled Complexes with a mix of IBM Z® server technologies that include one or more z15 servers with one or more z14 (all models) servers.

The Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC4) program provides a reduction in aggregated AWLC or CMLC as you upgrade to z15 servers within actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Country Multiplexes, or Loosely Coupled Complexes with a mix of Z server technologies that include one or more z15, z14 (all models), z13, or z13s® servers.

The Transition Charges for Multiplexes (TC3) program provides a reduction in aggregated CMLC as you upgrade to z15 servers within actively coupled Country Multiplexes with a mix of Z server technologies that include one or more z15, z14 (all models), z13, z13s, zEC12, or zBC12 servers

Aggregated Technology Update Pricing for the z15 is not available for actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Country Multiplexes, or Loosely Coupled Complexes until all of the servers in the sysplex, multiplex, or complex are upgraded to z15 servers.

Description

Top rule

Four TTOs consist of:

  • Technology Update Pricing for the z15
  • One new and two revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes programs

Within this announcement, a "TTO-eligible environment" refers to eligible z/OS and z/TPF operating systems and their associated middleware programs, which are listed in the Programs eligible for Programs eligible for AWLC and CMLC section, and running in the following configurations priced with AWLC or CMLC:

  • On a stand-alone z15 server
  • In a Country Multiplex with a z15 server
  • In an aggregated z/OS Parallel Sysplex with a z15 server
  • In an aggregated z/TPF Loosely Coupled Complex with a z15 server

Technology Update Pricing for the z15 (TU7)

z15 servers that receive a reduction to AWLC or CMLC pricing, which is called Technology Update Pricing for the z15, are those that are:

  • Stand-alone z15 servers that are priced with AWLC
  • All servers in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex, Country Multiplex, or Loosely Coupled Complex

Technology Update Pricing for the z15 is a monthly-license-charge price structure that is available for eligible software programs that run on a z15 server. The pricing update applies to z/OS operating system software and many of its associated middleware software programs, such as:

  • IBM CICS®
  • IBM Db2®
  • IBM IMS

Technology Update Pricing for the z15 also applies to z/TPF and its associated z/TPFDF monthly-license-charge programs. Other IBM operating systems and associated middleware software programs continue to be licensed and priced that are based on previously announced charge structures.

For details, see the Programs eligible for AWLC and CMLC section.

As an enhancement to AWLC that was previously announced in Software Announcement 210-238, dated July 22, 2010, Technology Update Pricing for the z15 may be implemented in full-capacity or sub-capacity mode under the previously announced terms.

  • Full-capacity

    Monthly charges for Technology Update Pricing for the z15-priced programs are based on the total MSU capacity of the z15 server. To view the IBM MSU ratings for the z15 servers, see the Mainframe Exhibits section of the IBM Z software pricing resources website.

  • Sub-capacity

    Monthly charges for Technology Update Pricing for the z15-priced software programs are based on the highest number of MSUs utilized by the combined Logical Partitions (LPARs) in which the Technology Update Pricing for the z15 program executes during a reporting period. LPAR MSU utilization is measured by the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) by using the highest observed rolling, four-hour average MSUs utilization. If you choose sub-capacity, pricing must use SCRT to generate sub-capacity reports and submit these reports to IBM each month. Additional client responsibilities under sub-capacity pricing are specified in the:

    • IBM Attachment for IBM System z® AWLC (Z125-8538)
    • IBM Attachment for IBM Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965)

    For more information about SCRT, see the Sub-capacity Corner section of the IBM Z software pricing tools website.

Rules for MSUs under Technology Transition Offerings

All MSUs that are used in determining Technology Update Pricing for the z15, Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC5), Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC4), and Transition Charges for Multiplexes (TC3) exclude capacity related to specialty engines, unassigned capacity, and temporary capacity such as, but not limited to:

  • Capacity Back Up
  • Capacity for Planned Events
  • On/Off CoD

Rules for aggregation under Technology Transition Offerings

Aggregation of product MSUs across multiple Z servers is allowed if the servers meet the actively coupled z/OS Parallel Sysplex definition rules in:

  • Attachment for System z AWLC (Z125-8538)
  • IBM Attachment for IBM Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965)
  • z/TPF Loosely Coupled Complex definition rules in the Amendment for Aggregation of Charges for z/TPF (Z125-7357)

z/OS or z/TPF must be licensed and running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode on each of the Z servers of a Parallel Sysplex, Country Multiplex, or Loosely Coupled Complex that receive aggregated Technology Update Pricing for the z15, or aggregated AWLC or CMLC under Transition Charges for Multiplexes (TC3), Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC4), or Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC5). Flat Workload License Charges (FWLC) products do not aggregate MSUs because their charge is independent of machine size or LPAR utilization.

Programs eligible for AWLC and CMLC

Note: Program eligibility is subject to product availability. This includes new programs that become eligible for AWLC and CMLC.

Terms and conditions

Top rule

The terms and conditions that are associated with Technology Update Pricing for the z15 apply for the following:

  • Sub-capacity pricing
  • Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes
  • The Attachment for System z® AWLC
  • The IBM Attachment for IBM Country Multiplex Pricing
  • The IBM Customer Agreement
  • The Client Relationship Agreement

In conjunction with software programs that are implemented with Technology Update Pricing for the z15, programs that have FWLC will continue to be charged by using FWLC. These programs have one flat monthly charge per IBM Z server, independent of the size of the machine to which the program is licensed.

System z New Application License Charges (zNALC) and Select Application License Charges (SALC) remain available for their respective eligible programs under their respective terms and conditions on servers with Technology Update Pricing for the z15.

The Supplement for Technology Transition Offerings to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8994) is updated specifically for the four Technology Transition Offerings, which consist of Technology Update Pricing for the z15 and the new and revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes program variations.

AWLC and CMLC terms and conditions that are described in the following documents, apply to Technology Update Pricing for the z15 and all Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes program variations:

  • Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8538)
  • IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges Exhibit (Z125-8539)
  • IBM Attachment for IBM Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965)

Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC) are available as an alternative charge metric for eligible software programs running on a z15 server. If available for your specific configuration, you have a choice of selecting either AWLC, CMLC, or PSLC, but not a combination of charges for your IBM software programs within the z/OS or z/TPF operating system families on a z15 server. In conjunction with software programs implemented with PSLC, z Systems® Usage Pricing Charges remain available for your respective eligible programs under z Systems Usage Pricing Charges terms and conditions.
