Per License
Per Terabyte

Note: When IBM Spectrum Protect Plus for IBM FlashSystem is used to backup a VM, a 1 terabyte entitlement allows backup of up to 10 VMs.

Licensing example: VM, databases and persistent volumes in containers

A client wishes to protect persistent volumes in a Red Hat® OpenShift® environment. IBM Spectrum Protect Plus for IBM FlashSystem is configured to protect a total of 2 TB of persistent volumes in the vSnap repository for recovery purposes. In addition to the persistent volumes, the client also needs to protect 150 VMs and one 8 TB Oracle database.

  • A 1 TB entitlement allows backup of up to 10 VM.
  • The backups for Oracle databases residing on physical machines are utilizing 8 TB in the vSnap repository.
  • The backups for persistent volumes of container and RHOS are utilizing 2 TB in the vSnap repository.
License purchase options Aggregated size (containers and databases) VM to TB conversion Required license entitlements
IBM Spectrum Protect Plus for IBM FlashSystem (8 + 2) TB = 10TB 150/10 = 10 TB (10+10) TB = 20 TB of IBM Spectrum Protect Plus for IBM FlashSystem capacity

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
