Description
IBM Spectrum Virtualize Software delivers a powerful solution for storage efficiency
in environments where IBM is the primary storage. When used in combination with
SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000 (Unified), Storwize V5000, Storwize V3700,
and Storwize V3500, IBM Spectrum Virtualize provides the benefits of storage
virtualization and advanced storage capabilities, including HyperSwap, vVol support,
FlashCopy, replication, Real-time Compression, and Easy Tier.
HyperSwap for IBM Spectrum Virtualize
HyperSwap capability enables each volume to be presented by two I/O groups. The
configuration will tolerate combinations of node and site failures, using a flexible
choice of host multipathing driver interoperability based on that available for the IBM
Spectrum Virtualize family of products already. The use of FlashCopy (no FlashCopy
licensing is required for the use of HyperSwap) helps maintain agolden imageduring
automatic resynchronization. As remote mirroring is used to support the HyperSwap
capability, Remote Mirroring licensing is a requirement for using HyperSwap on the
IBM Spectrum Virtualize family of products.
While the capabilities of HyperSwap have similarities to the SVC Stretch Cluster,
they use different underlying technologies to obtain those similar results, and not
all the environment configuration variations available with SVC Stretch Cluster are

necessarily available for HyperSwap. Review your environment configuration needs
with your IBM sales representative.
HyperSwap is available for use with the SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000, and
Storwize V5000 hardware platforms.
VVols and vSphere 6.0
Spectrum Virtualize Software V7.5 supports vSphere 6.0 and also has the ability
to provide VVols, a function made available in vSphere 6.0. A short explanation of
VVols demonstrates the advantage; each virtual machine (VM) keeps different types
of data each in a VVol, each of which is presented as a volume (logical unit is SCSI)
by the IBM Spectrum Virtualize system. Therefore, each VM owns a small number of
volumes. This places responsibility for space management in the Spectrum Virtualize
system, enabling the VM to take direct advantage of the software functions in the
Spectrum Virtualize system such as FlashCopy.
Refer to IBM Knowledge Center to determine which software functions are made
available to VVols. Refer to the Publications section for more information about
and links to the IBM Knowledge Center. The ability to manage VVols is subject to
a forthcoming release of Spectrum Control Basic and a subsequent compatible
modification level of Spectrum Virtualize Software V7.5 which will provide the
appropriate vStorage APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA).
FlashCopy bitmap space increase
Copy Services features and RAID require that small amounts of volume cache be
converted from cache memory into bitmap memory to enable the functions to
operate. With Spectrum Virtualize Software V7.5, the maximum allocated bitmap
space for FlashCopy is increased four times to 2048 MB, enabling customers to
configure more FlashCopy instances in a Spectrum Virtualize system.
The increase in FlashCopy bitmap space is available for use with all models of the
SAN Volume Controller, Storwize V7000 Generation 2 meaning the 2076-524 (prior
models of Storwize V7000 are not compatible), and Storwize V5000 hardware
platforms.
Direct 16 Gbps Fibre Channel support (except for AIX)
Spectrum Virtualize Software V7.5 allows you to directly connect host systems with
the new 16 Gbps Fibre Channel ports with all host operating systems except AIX.
Microsoft Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX)
Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) is supported with Spectrum Virtualize
Software V7.5. This functionality in Windows improves efficiencies by intelligently
managing Spectrum Virtualize systems to directly transfer data within or between
systems, bypassing the Windows host system.
TM
Revised licensing rules for SVC Real-time Compression Software (5641CP7)
Rather than using the volume size as the measure for determining how many
terabytes of SVC Real-time Compression 5641-CP7 to license as previously
announced, effective immediately for all licensed SVC Real-time Compression users,
the measured terabyte capacity now applies to the actual managed disk capacity
consumed by the compressed volumes.
For example, if you wish to store 500 TB of data where 300 TB of that data cannot
be compressed (so it is not configured on compressed volumes), but 200 TB of that
data can be compressed and is configured on compressed volumes; rather than
needing to license 200 TB of Real-time Compression, the compression ratio (which
can be obtained in advance using the Comprestimator tool, or can be later shown
in the system as the actual amount of managed disk space consumed by those
compressed volumes) can be applied to find out how much storage that 200 TB of
volumes actually consumes. If, for example, the compression ratio is 3:1 for that
IBM United States Software Announcement 215-171
IBM is a registered trademark of International Business Machines Corporation
4
200 TB of data, meaning that only 1 TB of managed storage is consumed for every
3 TB of data, then the user would license only 1/3 of the 200 TB, or 67 TB of the
5641-CP7 license. The 5641-CP7 license continues to not be licensed to a specific
SVC hardware device, but is licensed to the customer within a country, in the same
way that SVC standard (5639-VC7) software is licensed today.

Product positioning
Customers today face a challenging business environment. There is a need to
store more information to make their business more competitive and for IT to be
responsive and support initiatives, all while controlling IT costs and limiting the
amount of staff required to support IT.
IBM Spectrum Virtualize systems provide management of storage from entry and
midrange up to enterprise disk systems, and enable hosts to attach through SAN,
FCoE, or iSCSI to existing Ethernet networks. IBM Spectrum Virtualize is designed to
be easy to use, enabling existing staff to start working with it rapidly. IBM Spectrum
Virtualize uses virtualization, thin provisioning, and compression technologies to
improve storage utilization and meet changing needs quickly and easily. In this
way, Spectrum Virtualize products are the ideal complement to server virtualization
strategies.
IBM Spectrum Virtualize also enables migration of data from existing storage
systems to new ones, simplifying implementation and minimizing disruption. These
are offerings for customers with existing SAN or FCoE networks who seek to reduce
the complexities and costs of managing their storage.
IBM Spectrum Virtualize is a cross-industry offering for customers who are mainly
focused on cost savings while dealing with complexity and increasing storage
requirements. These customers also focus on scaling capability with reasonable
costs, including disaster recovery functions (Remote Mirroring, FlashCopy, Stretched
clusters) and performance features (SSD and Easy Tier).

License metric definition
For SVC:
Terabyte (T/TB)
1 TB of managed storage = 2 to the power of 40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes,

For Storwize V7000, Storwize V5000, andFlashSystemV840.
Storage Device
Storage Device is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A
Storage Device is an independently powered, channel-attached device that stores
or controls the storage of data on magnetic disks or solid state drives, such as disk
controllers and their respective expansion units, each constituting separate Storage
Devices. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every Storage Device which runs,
uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the Program and for every Storage
Device on which the Program is installed. Instead of the entitlements required for
the Program directly, Licensee must obtain entitlements for this Program sufficient to
cover the Storage Devices managed by the Program.
A storage device is equivalent to an enclosure, the term used most often when
describing the Spectrum Virtualize Software product licensing and usage.

Terms and conditions
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.
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.
This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as
Software Maintenance).
Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance
The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) applies for
Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not
require customer signatures.
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 (also referred to as Software
Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.
The customer is responsible for ensuring they renew their SWMA coverage for all
licensed features and capacities before expiration. Restarting SWMA after expiration
will incur a higher charge for that renewal.
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.

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).
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.

SVC standard software (5641-VC7)
This program (5641-VC7) is licensed on a per-terabyte (with cumulative tiers)
capacity basis. (Refer to the Ordering information section for information on charges
for this program.) Users may only install this program on IBM System Storage
SAN Volume Controller 2145-DH8, 2145-CG8, 2145-CF8, 2145-8G4, or 2145-8A4
Storage Engines, or subsequent IBM replacements of these.
IBM SAN Volume Controller standard software and its associated features are
licensed to the customer (enterprise). Note that a customer who has physical sites
in multiple countries may consolidate their licenses only within each country. Check
with your sales representative and review all necessary conditions prior to licensing.
A customer's right to use the IBM FlashCopy for SAN Volume Controller and Metro/
Global Mirror for SAN Volume Controller features of this program is also limited to
the amount of authorizations obtained from IBM. The authorizations for FlashCopy
and for Metro/Global Mirror cannot exceed the total capacity authorization for the
amount of managed storage on all clusters. Use of FlashCopy features requires
license authorizations for only the FlashCopy sources, not the targets.
Use of Metro/Global Mirror features requires license authorizations for both the
Metro/Global Mirror source and target capacities in use.
This program is only supported for use with host servers, storage subsystems, and
SAN configurations identified by IBM as being supported for attachment to the IBM
System Storage SAN Volume Controller. This program is provided together with code
provided under separate license agreements, including, but not limited to, open
source license agreements.
Storwize V7000
The following Program Unique Terms apply. This program is licensed for use with
the IBM Storwize V7000 system with which the program was delivered, and only to
manage the capacity specified in the proof of entitlement document for that license.
A separate license is required for each IBM Storwize V7000 storage enclosure. The
following paragraph titled "Disabling device" applies to the use of the IBM Storwize
V7000 Software components. The term "Program" in these paragraphs shall mean
the IBM Storwize V7000 Software components.
Disabling device: The Program may include a disabling device that will prevent
certain features from being used. You will not tamper with such disabling device or
otherwise change the Program.
Transferability: The Program 5639-VM7, 5639-CB7, or 5639-XB7 are
nontransferable between IBM Storwize V7000 systems and are only to be used
on the IBM Storwize V7000 system for which it was purchased. If the system is
transferred to a new owner, the program license transfers with the system. However,
Software Maintenance does not transfer, and a new maintenance agreement must be
purchased by the new owner.

IBM Storwize V5000 with which the program was delivered and only to manage the
capacity specified in the proof of entitlement document for that license. A separate
license is required for each IBM Storwize V5000 storage enclosure. The following
paragraph titled "Disabling device" applies to the use of the IBM Storwize V5000
Software components. The term "Program" in these paragraphs shall mean the IBM
Storwize V5000 Software components.
Disabling device: The Program may include a disabling device that will prevent
certain features from being used. You will not tamper with such disabling device or
otherwise change the Program.

Statement of good security practices
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through 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 comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve
additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or
services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are
immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
