Complementing the announcement of the IBM zEnterprise EC12™ ( zEC12™ ) server, IBM® provides three Technology Transition Offerings that consist of Technology Update Pricing for Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC) and two revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes programs.

Technology Update Pricing for AWLC uses the reporting mechanisms and existing Millions of Service Units per hour (MSU) tiers of the AWLC pricing metric while extending the software price-performance provided by AWLC.

The three Technology Transition Offerings apply only to eligible z/OS® and z/TPF operating systems and their associated middleware programs when running on an IBM zEnterprise® EC12 server or in an aggregated Parallel Sysplex® with an IBM zEnterprise EC12 server. For details, refer to the Programs eligible for AWLC section.

Benefits of Technology Update Pricing for AWLC

If you are operating a single, stand-alone zEC12 server, you may elect Technology Update Pricing for AWLC or Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC), subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

If you are operating only zEC12 servers in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex , you may elect aggregated Technology Update Pricing for AWLC or aggregated Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC). Both options are subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

Benefits of revisions to Transition Charges for Sysplexes:

AWLC Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC2) program provides aggregated AWLC along with a reduction in AWLC as you upgrade to zEC12 servers within actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes with a mix of zEnterprise system server technologies including one or more zEC12 servers with one or more z196 or IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114) servers.

Aggregated Technology Update Pricing for AWLC is not available for actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes until all of the servers in the sysplex are upgraded to zEC12 servers.

AWLC Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC1) program provides aggregated Variable Workload License Charges (VWLC) as well as a reduction in VWLC as you upgrade servers to zEC12, z196, or z114 servers within actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes with a mix of System z® server technologies that includes both of the following:

Aggregated Technology Update Pricing for AWLC is not available for actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes until all of the servers in the sysplex are upgraded to zEC12 servers.

Three Technology Transition Offerings that consist of Technology Update Pricing for AWLC and two revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes program variations are being made available.

Technology Update Pricing for AWLC

When stand-alone zEC12 servers are priced with AWLC, or when all the servers in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex are zEC12 servers priced with AWLC, these servers receive a reduction to AWLC pricing which is called Technology Update Pricing for AWLC.

Technology Update Pricing for AWLC is a monthly license charge price structure available for eligible software programs running on an IBM zEnterprise EC12 server. Technology Update Pricing for AWLC applies to z/OS operating system software and many of its associated middleware software programs, such as CICS® , DB2® , and IMS™ .

Technology Update Pricing for AWLC also applies to the z/TPF and its associated z/TPFDF programs. Other IBM operating systems and associated middleware software programs continue to be licensed and priced based on previously announced charge structures.

For details, refer to the Programs eligible for AWLC section.

As an enhancement to AWLC, previously announced in Software Announcement AP10-0220, dated July 22, 2010, Technology Update Pricing for AWLC, may be implemented in full capacity or sub-capacity mode under the previously announced terms.

Schedule of AWLC reductions for Technology Update Pricing for AWLC (TU1)

  Number of zEC12 Full Capacity MSUs
  for a stand-alone server, or the          Reduction in
  sum of Full Capacity MSUs in an           monthly AWLC
  actively coupled Parallel Sysplex
  made up entirely of zEC12 servers
 
        4 -   45 MSUs                           2.0%
       46 -  315 MSUs                           4.0%
      316 - 1315 MSUs                           4.5%
     1316 - 2676 MSUs                           5.0%
     2677 - 5476 MSUs                           6.0%
     5477 - more MSUs                           7.0%
 

The number of MSUs used to determine either the MSUs of a stand-alone zEC12 server or the total MSUs of a zEC12 Parallel Sysplex are based on the announced IBM full capacity ratings that can be found on the Mainframe Exhibits section of the System z Software Contracts website at

http://ibm.com/systems/z/swprice/reference/exhibits/hardware.html

AWLC Transition Charges for Sysplexes program

The AWLC Transition Charges for Sysplexes program, previously announced in Software Announcement AP10-0220, dated July 22, 2010, is updated to include the zEC12 and now includes two variations, Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC1) and Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC2):

Rules for MSUs under Technology Transition Offerings

All MSUs used in determining Technology Update Pricing for AWLC, Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC1), and Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC2) exclude capacity related to specialty engines, unassigned capacity, and temporary capacity such as, but not limited to, "Capacity Back Up", "Capacity for Planned Events", and "On/Off CoD".

Rules for aggregation under Technology Transition Offerings

Aggregation of product MSUs across multiple System z servers is allowed if the servers meet the actively coupled Parallel Sysplex definition rules in the Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges, (Z125-8538). z/OS must be licensed and running in z/Architecture® (64-bit) mode on each of the System z servers of a Parallel Sysplex receiving aggregated Technology Update Pricing for AWLC, or aggregated AWLC under Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC2), or aggregated VWLC under Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC1). FWLC products do not aggregate MSUs since their charge is independent of machine size or LPAR utilization.

Terms and conditions

All terms and conditions associated with Technology Update Pricing for AWLC, sub-capacity pricing, Transition Charges for Sysplexes, the Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges, and the IBM Customer Agreement apply.

In conjunction with software programs implemented with Technology Update Pricing for AWLC, programs having Flat Workload License Charges (FWLC) will continue to be charged using FWLC. These programs have one flat monthly charge per IBM System z server, independent of the size of the machine to which the program is licensed.

System z New Application License Charges (zNALC) and Select Application License Charges (SALC) remain available for their respective eligible programs under their respective terms and conditions on servers with Technology Update Pricing for AWLC.

Documents updated specifically for the three Technology Transition Offerings, consisting of Technology Update Pricing for AWLC and the two revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes program variations include the Supplement for Technology Transition Offerings to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8994).

AWLC terms and conditions described in the following documents apply to Technology Update Pricing for AWLC and both Transition Charges for Sysplexes program variations:

In addition, WLC terms and conditions described in the following documents also apply to Transition Charges for Sysplexes (TC1):

Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC) are available as an alternative charge metric for eligible software programs running on a zEC12 server. If available for your specific configuration, you have a choice of selecting either Technology Update Pricing for AWLC or PSLC, but not both, for your IBM software programs within the z/OS or z/TPF operating system families on a zEC12 server. In conjunction with software programs implemented with PSLC, System z Usage Pricing Charges remain available for your respective eligible programs under System z Usage Pricing Charges terms and conditions.

Programs eligible for AWLC

Note: Program eligibility is subject to product availability, including new programs that become eligible for AWLC.
