Overview
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition products deliver a managed file transfer solution for moving files with auditability, visibility, and reliability. These products leverage WebSphere MQ messaging as its reliable transport mechanism for moving files and enables files to be moved regardless of size.

An audit log of file movements enables organizations to demonstrate that business data in files is transferred with integrity from source to target file system. Graphical configuration tooling, supplied with the product on distributed platforms and integrated with WebSphere MQ Explorer, enables quick and easy definition of transfers remotely from Microsoft® Windows® or Linux® on x86 machines without the need for programming.

On distributed platforms, WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition includes a copy of WebSphere MQ, the license of which is limited for use on the same machine as the product. It entitles the client to use its full WebSphere MQ messaging functionality.

Trade-up licenses are available for existing clients who want to upgrade machines running WebSphere MQ to WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition. Clients who upgrade can continue to use the full messaging capabilities of the limited license copy of WebSphere MQ that is supplied with WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition. Machines running WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition provide a multipurpose connectivity solution for files and messages.

WebSphere MQ for z/OS is a prerequisite for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition for z/OS. A separate license of WebSphere MQ for z/OS is required for this product on the System z platform.

Organizations that run separate mechanisms for file and message traffic can consolidate on a single, reliable transport capable of handling both file and message traffic. Using a single reliable backbone can help achieve these operational efficiencies by reducing the need to deploy and manage separate parallel networks for messages and files.

Description
Bottom rule

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition delivers a managed file transfer solution for moving files regardless of their size. It adds file transfer services to the WebSphere MQ backbone to enable movement of files in a managed way with auditability, visibility, and reliability.

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition delivers a service oriented architecture (SOA)-ready managed file transfer solution that can replace "home-grown" and FTP-based approaches to file movement.

The enhancements in WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.2 are compatible with WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.1.

What's new

  • Support for the IBM i operating system (V5R4 and V6R1) further extends the range of platforms already supported for both server (local WebSphere MQ queue manager) and client configurations (remote WebSphere MQ queue manager).
  • Ability to bridge to FTP and SFTP (SSH) servers. Files can be transferred from WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition to and from FTP or SFTP servers. The source or destination agent for a file transfer can be an FTP or SFTP server that bridges the transfer to the non-MQ protocol. File transfers bridged to FTP and SFTP retain auditability and reliability. There is no need for WebSphere MQ or WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition to be installed at the FTP or SFTP location. Bridging agents for FTP and SFTP is fully integrated into the graphical, command line, and scripting interfaces. This helps ease migration from a non-managed (FTP or SFTP) network to a managed network based on WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition.
  • Enhanced security with more granular access control for users and groups. This provides the ability to easily configure fine-grained access control to agent resources, delivering user- and group-based control of who can transfer files to a particular agent, transfer files from a particular agent, and perform operational and administrative agent functions.
  • Extended platform coverage for database archiving of file transfer audit log. This enables you to archive transfer audit log data to external relational databases running on the z/OS, Solaris, and Linux on x86 platforms for audit and archiving purposes. An external database is needed -- a database is not included with the product. This feature is available on supported platforms where WebSphere MQ Transaction Coordination (XA) is available and provides transactional transfer of audit messages from the audit log queue to external databases. By default, transfer audit log messages are held in persistent queues.
  • Enhancements to ease deployment between test and production configurations. This enables WebSphere MQ File Transfer queue-based artefacts to be created via a scriptable interface. Information can be used to create an agent configuration to be stored in an external change-control repository, facilitating reliable migration of deployments from test to production environments.
  • Documentation for configuring transfers through the B2B gateway provided by WebSphere DataPower B2B Appliance XB60. This enables file transfers to be sent via the B2B gateway to trading partners who use a range of alternative transports such as AS2.

In addition, new IBM SupportPacs extend the capabilities of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition.

SupportPac™ FA01 can help govern the Agent infrastructure of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition. It provides a plug-in to the IBM SOA Repository, WebSphere Service Registry & Repository. Using this plug-in, information about file transfer agents and queue manager connections can be retrieved from WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition and SOA assets generated to represent these in WebSphere Service Registry & Repository. This can enable administrators to analyse the relationships between agents and the underlying MQ network, and determine the impact to agents of any changes made to the WebSphere MQ configuration. In addition, it enables SOA governance policies to be applied to managed file transfer agents.

The graphical tooling Eclipse plug-ins supplied for the WebSphere MQ Explorer can be installed into the separately downloadable WebSphere MQ Explorer package that is available as SupportPac MS0T.

Value Unit-based pricing

Value Unit pricing for eligible IBM System z IBM International Program License Agreement (IPLA) programs enables a lower cost of incremental growth and enterprise aggregation. Each System z IPLA product with Value Unit pricing has a single price per Value Unit and a conversion matrix, called Value Unit Exhibit, for converting from some designated measurement to Value Units. Most commonly, Millions of Service Units (MSUs) is the measurement designated by IBM to be converted to Value Units. Some other measurements are engines or messages. Since MSUs are the most common measurement, that measurement will be used for the remainder of this description.

Value Unit pricing offers price benefits for you. For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Each of the various Value Unit Exhibits stipulate that the larger your required license capacity, the fewer Value Units per MSU you will need. Value Unit Exhibits are uniquely identified by a three digit code and referred to using the nomenclature VUExxx, where xxx is the three digit code.

Subsequent acquisitions of Value Unit priced programs offer additional price benefits. The quantity of each System z IPLA program that you have acquired is referred to as entitled license capacity. If you wish to grow your entitled license capacity for a System z IPLA program, the calculation to determine additional needed Value Units is based upon the number of Value Units already acquired.

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, you should:

  • Determine the required license capacity, in MSUs
  • Aggregate the MSUs across the enterprise
  • Convert the total MSUs to Value Units, using the applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • Multiply the price per Value Unit by the total number of Value Units to determine the total cost

To simplify conversion from the designated measurement to Value Units or vice-versa, use the Value Unit Converter Tool. For additional information or to obtain a copy of the Value Unit Converter Tool, visit the Value Unit Converter Tool Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice/vuctool

Note that Value Units of a given product cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Units of another product.

To determine the required license capacity for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Terms and conditions section.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is a unit of measure by which this distributed software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table* by processor vendor, brand, type and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:

  1. For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table1
  2. The PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
  3. Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.

PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.

Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity1 terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated 2 physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to, or managed by, the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html
2
Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available for use in a server. They include processor cores:
  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
  • Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through virtualization technologies, operating system commands and BIOS settings.

Client Device

Client Device is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Client Device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple Client Devices may share access to a common server. A Client Device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each Client Device accessing the program in any manner on each and every single computer or server where the program is installed.

Examples include, but are not limited to appliances, automated teller machines, cash registers, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, and technical workstations.

WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.2 (5724-R10) in this announcement has Value Unit-based pricing.

The z/OS program in this announcement has Value Unit-based pricing.

Ordering example

The total number of Value Units is calculated according to the following example.

If your required license capacity is 1,500 MSUs for your selected System z IPLA product, the applicable Value Units would be:

Translation from MSUs to Value Units
 
          MSUs    *  Value Units/MSU = Value Units
Base          3   *  1.00            =    3.00
Tier A       42   *   .45            =   18.90
Tier B      130   *   .36            =   46.80
Tier C      140   *   .27            =   37.80
Tier D    1,185   *   .20            =  237.00
 
Total     1,500                         343.50

When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (IAASM). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone.
  • Entitles you to future releases and versions, at no additional charge. Note that you are not entitled to new products.

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless cancelled by you.

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390® and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

Single version charging

To elect single version charging, you must notify and identify to IBM the prior program and replacement program, and the machine the programs are operating on.

Customized Offerings

Product deliverables are shipped only via Customized Offerings (for example, CBPDO, ServerPac, SystemPac®).

CBPDO and ServerPac are offered for Internet delivery, where ShopzSeries product ordering is available. Internet delivery of ServerPac may help improve automation and software delivery time. For more details on Internet delivery, refer to the ShopzSeries help information at

http://www.software.ibm.com/ShopzSeries

Media type for this software product is chosen during the Customized Offerings ordering process. Based on your customer environment, it is recommended that the highest possible density tape media is selected. Currently offered media types are:

  • CBPDOs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, and 35923
  • ServerPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, and 35923
  • SystemPacs - 3480, 3480 Compressed, 3490E, 3590, and 35923
3
3592 is highest density media. Selecting 3592 will ship the fewest number of media.

Once a product becomes generally available, it will be included in the next ServerPac and SystemPac monthly update.

Production of software product orders will begin on the planned general availability date.

  • CBPDO shipments will begin one week after general availability.
  • ServerPac shipments will begin two weeks after inclusion in ServerPac.
  • SystemPac shipments will begin four weeks after inclusion in SystemPac due to additional customization, and data input verification.

Sub-capacity terms and conditions

For each System z IPLA program with Value Unit pricing, the quantity of that program needed to satisfy applicable IBM terms and conditions is referred to as the required license capacity. Your required license capacity is based upon the following factors:

  • The System z IPLA program you select
  • The applicable Value Unit Exhibit
  • The applicable terms
  • Whether your current mainframes are full capacity or sub-capacity

For more information on the Value Unit Exhibit for the System z IPLA program you selected, refer to the Ordering information section.

Sub-capacity mainframes

In cases where sub-capacity is applicable, the following terms apply.

Execution-based: The required capacity of a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with these terms equals the capacity of the LPARs where the System z IPLA program executes.

z/OS-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of z/OS on the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

Reference-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with these terms equals the license capacity of the applicable monthly license charge (MLC) program. This MLC program is called the parent program.

Full-machine-based: The required license capacity of a System z IPLA program with full-machine-based terms equals the MSU-rated capacity of the machines where the System z IPLA program executes.

For more information on mainframe MSU-rated capacities, refer to The IBMSystem z Machines Exhibit ( Z125-3901), or visit the Mainframes section of the System z Exhibits Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/library/swpriceinfo/

For more information on sub-capacity System z IPLA terms and conditions, refer to Software Announcement 204-184, dated August 10, 2004.

For additional information for products with reference-based terms, System z IPLA sub-capacity programs with reference-based terms adds value to the parent program across the environment, regardless of where in the environment the System z IPLA program executes.

An environment is defined as either a single or stand-alone machine or a qualified Parallel Sysplex®. You may have one or more different environments across the enterprise. To determine the required license capacity for each System z IPLA program with referenced-based terms, each environment should be assessed separately.

When a System z IPLA sub-capacity program with reference-based terms is used in a qualified Parallel Sysplex environment, the required license capacity of theSystem z IPLA program must equal with the license capacity of the parent program across the Parallel Sysplex. Qualified Parallel Sysplex refers to one:

  • That meets the criteria defined in Hardware Announcement 198-001, dated January 13, 1998
  • Where MLC pricing is aggregated across the sysplex
Sub-capacity eligibility

To be eligible for sub-capacity charging on select System z IPLA programs, you must first implement and comply with all terms of either sub-capacity Workload License Charges (WLC) or sub-capacity Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC). To implement sub-capacity WLC or EWLC, a machine must be System z (or equivalent). On that machine:

  • All instances of the OS/390® operating system must be migrated to the z/OS operating systems
  • Any licenses for the OS/390 operating system must be discontinued
  • All instances of the z/OS operating systems must be running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode

For that machine, you must create and submit a Sub-Capacity Report to IBM each month. Sub-Capacity Reports must be generated using the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT). For additional information or to obtain a copy of SCRT, visit the System z Software Pricing Web site

http://ibm.com/zseries/swprice

You must comply with all of the terms of the WLC or EWLC offering, whichever is applicable:

  • The complete terms and conditions of sub-capacity WLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for System z Workload License Charges (Z125-6516).
  • The complete terms and conditions for sub-capacity EWLC are defined in the IBM Customer Agreement - Attachment for IBM System z 890 and 800 License Charges (Z125-6587).

Additionally, you must sign and comply with the terms and conditions specified in the amendment to the IPLA contract - Amendment for IBM System z9® and System z Programs Sub-Capacity Pricing (Z125-6929). Once the amendment is signed, the terms in the amendment replace any and all previous System z IPLA sub-capacity terms and conditions.

Sub-capacity utilization determination

Sub-capacity utilization is determined based on the product's own execution as reported to IBM in accordance with the requirements for reporting sub-capacity utilization for products.

On/Off Capacity on Demand (CoD)

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, you must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract, Attachment for Customer Initiated Upgrade and IBM eServer™ On/Off Capacity on Demand - Software (Z125-6611) must be signed prior to use.

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.

Subscription and Support

To receive voice technical support via telephone and future releases and versions at no additional charge, Subscription and Support must be ordered. The capacity of Subscription and Support (Value Units) must be the same as the capacity ordered for the product licenses.

To order, specify the Subscription and Support program number (PID) referenced above and the appropriate license or charge option.

IBM is also providing Subscription and Support for these products via a separately purchased offering under the terms of the IBM International Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (IAASM). This offering:

  • Includes and extends the support services provided in the base support to include technical support via telephone.
  • Entitles you to future releases and versions, at no additional charge. Note that you are not entitled to new products.

When Subscription and Support is ordered, the charges will automatically renew annually unless cancelled by you.

The combined effect of the IPLA license and the Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance gives you rights and support services comparable to those under the traditional ICA S/390 and System z license or its equivalent. To ensure that you continue to enjoy the level of support you are used to in the ICA business model, you must order both the license for the program and the support for the selected programs at the same Value Unit quantities.

For current prices, visit

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based one-time charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed, the charge of the next higher group listed applies. For movement to a machine in a higher group, an upgrade charge equal to the difference in the then-current charges between the two groups will apply. For movement to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of charges paid.
