WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack

The WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server supports deployment of WebSphere Application Server virtual images into VMware ESX environments.

WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is a combination of WebSphere Application Server and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system optimized for x86 environments. It can take the form of a single application server, a member of a cluster of application servers, or an IBM HTTP server instance. It includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server.

By deploying and running WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition in virtualized environments, you can better utilize hardware, which ultimately reduces hardware, power, cooling, and real estate costs. Increased hardware utilization results from virtualization allowing a single machine to be carved into multiple smaller "virtual machines," each of which may run an instance of WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition.

A new WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack provides dynamic runtime management of WebSphere application environments deployed by WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance. Specifically, it supports application edition management to orchestrate the rollout of new application versions, policy-based management in the form of health management, and service policy management to reduce risk of downtime and make fine-grained resource allocation decisions based on observed demand and configured policy. WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack is included in WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition 7.0. However, its product license must be purchased separately.

Although the products are sold separately, WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 (with WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack) is preloaded on the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance for convenience. WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server can also be installed for stand-alone operation.

WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance is a cloud computing appliance that manages WebSphere products in a cloud environment. It dispenses patterns of virtual images into a pool of virtualized resources running a supported hypervisor. The optimization for deployment speed and agility enables an entirely new usage paradigm for WebSphere Application Server built around rapid setup and teardown. Test cases can be based upon a standardized deployment that is destroyed and reinstalled after each execution.

For more information on WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance, refer to Hardware Announcement 110-116, dated April 30, 2010.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by processor, vendor, brand, type, and model number at the following Web page and the number of processors made available to the program.

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see Web page below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores1 in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at

http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html
1
An Activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes:

  • Express® and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware Programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.
  • Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis only. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.
  • A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the referenced program is licensed.

Top rule
Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

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

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

IBM will support each WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition and WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition for the life cycle of the corresponding WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Process Server product versions, respectively. WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack V6.1.1 have the same End of Support date as the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 product. WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition V6.2 has the same End of Support date as the WebSphere Process Server V6.2 product and the WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition V7.0 has the same End of Support date as the WebSphere Process Server V7.0 product.

You are eligible to obtain technical support for the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition, WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition Intelligent Management Pack, and WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition during their support life cycle, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server

IBM will provide support for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server component included in the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition under the following conditions:

  • The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server component is used in conjunction with the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition.
  • The version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server is supported by Red Hat.

IBM may ask customers to move up to the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server support level. IBM, in turn, will upgrade the version of the underlying Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server during the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition support life cycle to maintain the operating system support. Customers with active Passport Advantage subscription and support are entitled to this upgrade.

Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

IBM will provide support for the Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server component included in the WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition under the following conditions:

  • The Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server component is used in conjunction with the WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition.
  • The version of Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is supported by Novell.

IBM may ask customers to move up to the latest Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server support level. IBM, in turn, will upgrade the version of the underlying Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server during the WebSphere Process Server Hypervisor Edition support life cycle to maintain the operating system support. Customers with active Passport Advantage subscription and support are entitled to this upgrade.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.
