Description

Top rule

Private Cloud Pools 2.0 delivers innovation beyond the initial Power Enterprise Pools offering by enabling Base Processor Activations, Base Memory Activations, and their corresponding license entitlements to be effectively shared across a collection of IBM Power E1080 and E980, E950, or S922 and S924 systems without having to move mobile activation resources through the HMC.

Private Cloud Pools 2.0 enables a group of IBM Power E1080 and E980, E950, or S922 and S924 systems using shared processor partitions, to be defined as a pool of collective Base Capacity resources, activates all available processor and memory resources systems within the pool, and then monitors the collective processor, memory, AIX, and IBM i license entitlement resource utilization of the pool by the minute. Any individual resource consumption above the pool's Base (purchased) resources is charged as Metered Capacity by the minute.

Using the CMC, Private Cloud Pools 2.0 enables clients to monitor their Base and Metered Capacity across the pool, providing summary and historical resource consumption by virtual machine (VM). Clients pay for Metered Capacity consumption by purchasing Capacity Credits, which are then debited in real time as processor, memory, or license entitlement resources above the pool's Base are consumed by the minute.

The Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0 process for enabling Utility Capacity is as follows:

  1. Clients purchase one or more IBM Power E1080, E980, E950, S922, or S924 system with Base Processor and Memory Activations, as well as corresponding software license entitlements.
  2. Clients purchase an initial quantity of Capacity Credits from an IBM Business Partner, directly from IBM Sales, on the ESS website (where available), to pay for potential Metered Capacity consumption (minutes of consumption above a pool's collective Base Capacity for a given resource).
  3. A system administrator creates a Pool ID through the ESS website using the serial number of a system with associated Capacity Credits.
  4. An administrator accesses the CMC and defines a Power Enterprise Pool using the Pool ID and assigns the Power system to it by serial number.
  5. All resources are subsequently activated on all Power E1080, E980, E950, S922, and S924 systems in the pool, and the CMC begins monitoring the pool.
  6. Metered resource minutes consumed above the pool's aggregate Base for that resource are debited against the pool's Capacity Credits by the CMC and updated in ESS daily.

The Private Cloud Pools 2.0 application provides the following capabilities:

  • Start a pool
  • Add Power E1080, E980, E950, S922, and S924 systems to a pool
  • Set a monthly budget for Metered Capacity consumption
  • Analyze total or metered minutes, Capacity Credits, core, memory, or operating system resource usage
  • Monitor Base and Metered Capacity used within a pool over time
  • Analyze trends within a pool and adjust time scale to review by minutes, hours, days, weeks, or month
  • Navigate within a selected time period to see more detailed usage by VM
  • Show Capacity Credits consumed and break down usage by resource within a pool
  • Display Capacity Credit balance, budget status, metered resource rate table, and Capacity Credit purchase history
  • Monitor and maintain monthly Capacity Credit budget
  • Tailor alerts and thresholds for a pool based on budget and resource consumption

Both core and memory usage are tracked and charged by the minute. Both are based on the average usage for one minute and not the peak usage during the minute.

  • Core usage is tracked based on actual consumption by partitions
  • Memory usage is tracked based on the assignment of memory to partitions and is not tracked based on the operating system usage of the memory
  • Only memory assigned to active partitions is tracked and charged

Core usage is tracked and charged by the operating system. Private Cloud Pools 2.0 has two different types of Base Processor Activation resources, and software license entitlement is monitored and metered independently of processor activations. There are four different types of core-related Metered Capacity charges:

  • A core that may run any operating system supported on Power
  • A core that may run only Linux/VIOS
  • AIX software (licensed per core)
  • IBM i software (licensed per core)

There are no software charges for Linux or VIOS partitions. Linux license entitlement must be procured separately as required to support the appropriate cores or sockets activated and available for use by Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0.

Metered Capacity resources consumed on Power E1080 and E980 systems are debited against one Capacity Credit at the following rates:

Power E1080 or E980 metered resource Usage ratio (Minutes: 1 capacity credit)
1 Core Activation - any OS 35,000
1 Core Activation - Linux/VIOS only 88,000
AIX software 30,000
IBM i software 2,200
Red Hat® Enterprise Linux Software 70,000
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Software 70,000
Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform for Power 22,000
1 GB Memory Activation 3,600,000

Metered Capacity resources on Power E950 systems consumed will be debited against one Capacity Credit at the following rates:

Power E950 metered resource Usage ratio (Minutes: 1 capacity credit)
1 Core Activation - any OS 120,000
1 Core Activation - Linux/VIOS only 180,000
AIX software 60,000
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Software 90,000
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server software 90,000
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for Power 23,000
1 GB Memory Activation 15,000,000

Metered Capacity resources on Power S924 or Power S922 systems consumed will be debited against one Capacity Credit at the following rates:

Power S924 or Power S922 metered resource Usage ratio (Minutes: 1 capacity credit)
1 Core Activation - any OS 150,000
AIX software 60,000
IBM i software 6,500
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Software 90,000
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for Power 23,000

Only Power E1080, E980, E950, S922, or S924 are allowed in IBM Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0. Power E880C, Power E870C, or earlier-generation server are not allowed to coexist in this new pool. Because all available resources in Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0 are fully active and available for use by the minute, there is no requirement or support for using Elastic CoD to activate resources by the day or need to reallocate any Mobile activation resources offered with the initial Power Enterprise Pools offering. Therefore, these options are not supported on a system configured for Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0. Power Enterprise Pools with Mobile activations and Elastic CoD remain available as discrete for Power E1080 and E980 and previous generation high-end systems.

Requirements for IBM Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0 include:

  • One to thirty-two Power System E1080, E980, E950, S922, or S924, each having at least 25% of its installed processors activated through Base Processor Activation features and at least 50% of its installed memory activation features activated through Base Memory Activation features.
  • All VMs on Power System E1080, E980, E950, S922, or S924 within a Power Private Cloud Pools 2.0 must be configured as shared processor partitions. Dedicated processor partitions are not allowed.
  • A maximum of 1,000 VMs are supported in an instance of a CMC managing a Private Cloud Pools 2.0 upon initial release.
  • Power Systems Firmware 930, or later.1
  • Power Systems Firmware 940, or later.1
  • Hardware Management Console 930.
  • All Power System E1080, E980, E950, S922, and S924 in a Private Cloud Pools 2.0 must be under warranty or current IBM Hardware Maintenance contract with the same service level.
  • All cores activated by Base Processor Activations must be licensed for the supported operating system and registered for associated Software Subscription and Support.
  • All cores activated by Base Processor Activations must be licensed for either IBM Power Systems Enterprise Cloud Edition (5765-ECB) or IBM Power Systems Enterprise Cloud Edition with AIX (5765-CBA) and registered for associated Software Subscription and Support.
  • A connection to an IBM CMC (subscription included as part of Enterprise Cloud Edition above).
  • Capacity Credits purchased through IBM, an IBM Business Partner, or the ESS website, where available.
  • An Attachment for IBM Power Private Cloud (Pools 2.0) with Cloud Management (Z126-8404) either signed with purchase of Capacity Credits or accepted online as part of a Capacity Credit purchase transaction through ESS.
