Complementing the information that was announced in the IBM z14 Model ZR1 server Hardware Announcement AG18-0018, dated April 10, 2018, IBM® makes the following available:

  • A new Technology Transition Offering (TTO) for the z14 Model ZR1 called Technology Update Pricing (TU6)

    Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 uses the reporting mechanisms and existing Millions of Service Units per hour (MSU) tiers of the Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (AEWLC) pricing metric while extending the software price-performance that is provided by AEWLC.

    Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 applies only to eligible z/OS®, z/TPF, and z/VSE® operating systems and their associated middleware programs when running on a single, stand-alone z14 Model ZR1 server. It also applies to all these operating systems and their associated middleware programs when running in a z/VM® guest environment. For details, see the "Programs eligible for AEWLC" section. Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC) and the Midrange Workload License Charges (MWLC) license options are not available for a z14 Model ZR1 server.

    Benefits of Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) include:

    • Reduction of AEWLC pricing on the z14 Model ZR1 as compared to AEWLC on the IBM z13s® (z13s®), IBM zEnterprise® BC12 (zBC12) and IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114) servers
    • Sub-capacity or full-capacity implementation

  • Revisions to the Technology Update Pricing (TU5) and three revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offerings

    The revisions to the Technology Update Pricing (TU5) and the three Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offerings apply only to eligible z/OS and z/TPF operating systems and their associated middleware programs, when running in an aggregated Parallel Sysplex® or a Loosely Coupled Complex, respectively, or when clients have implemented Country Multiplex Pricing.

    The benefit of the revisions to Technology Update Pricing (TU5) is that it offers actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Loosely Coupled Complexes, or Country Multiplexes that consist entirely z14 servers (all models), which is the benefit of aggregated Technology Update Pricing (TU5).

    The benefit of revisions to Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offers actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes, Loosely Coupled Complexes, or Country Multiplexes with different generations of server hardware technology partial benefits of Technology Update Pricing.

Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6)

When stand-alone z14 Model ZR1 servers are priced with AEWLC, these servers receive a reduction to AEWLC pricing, called Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6).

Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) is a monthly-license-charge price structure that is available for eligible software programs, which run on a z14 Model ZR1 server. Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) applies to z/OS operating system software and many of its associated middleware software programs, such as:

  • IBM CICS®
  • IBM Db2®
  • IBM IMS™

    For details, see the "Programs eligible for AEWL C" section.

Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) also applies to the z/TPF and z/VSE operating systems and associated middleware software programs. For details, see the "Programs eligible for AEWLC" section.

As an enhancement to AEWLC, which was announced in Software Announcement AP13-0303, dated July 23, 2013, Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) may be implemented in full-capacity or sub-capacity mode, under the terms previously available.

  • Full-capacity

    Monthly charges for Technology Update Pricing (TU6)-priced software programs are based on the total MSU capacity of the z14 Model ZR1 server. To view the IBM MSU ratings for the z14 Model ZR1 servers, see the IBM Mainframe Exhibit - Software Pricing Machine exhibit for IBM processors.

  • Sub-capacity

    Monthly charges for Technology Update Pricing (TU6)-priced software programs are based on the highest number of MSUs that are utilized by the combined logical partitions (LPARs) in which the program executes during a reporting period on the z14 Model ZR1. LPAR MSU utilization is measured by the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) by using the highest observed rolling four-hour average MSUs utilization. If choosing sub-capacity pricing, you must use SCRT to generate sub-capacity reports and submit these reports to IBM each month. Your additional responsibilities under sub-capacity pricing are specified in the ICA Attachment for Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (Z125-8755).

For more information about SCRT, see the IBM Z Software Pricing website.

Schedule of AEWLC reductions for Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6)

Number of z14 Model ZR1 Full-Capacity MSUs Reduction in monthly AEWLC
1 - 11 MSUs 18.0%
12 - 17 MSUs 18.0%
18 - 30 MSUs 18.0%
31 - 45 MSUs 15.0%
46 - 87 MSUs 14.0%
88 - 175 MSUs 14.0%
176 - 260 MSUs 13.0%
261 - 315 MSUs 13.0%
316 - 390 MSUs 13.0%
391 - more MSUs 13.0%

The number of MSUs that are used to determine the MSUs of a stand-alone z14 Model ZR1 server are based on the announced, IBM full-capacity ratings. To view the IBM MSU ratings for the z14 Model ZR1 servers, see the IBM Mainframe Exhibit - Software Pricing Machine exhibit for IBM processors.

Technology Update Pricing for the z14 (TU5)

When all servers in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex or a Loosely Coupled Complex are z14 servers (all models), or when all servers in a multiplex are z14 servers (all models), they receive a reduction to AWLC or CMLC pricing. This is referred to as Technology Update Pricing for the z14 (TU5), as previously announced in Software announcement AP17-0265, dated July 17, 2017.

Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offerings

Throughout this announcement, the phrase, "TTO-eligible environment" refers to eligible z/OS and z/TPF operating systems and their associated middleware programs, when they run in the following configurations that are priced with AWLC or CMLC:

  • In an aggregated z/OS Parallel Plexus, with a z14 Model ZR1 server
  • In an aggregated z/TPF Loosely Coupled Complex, with a z14 Model ZR1 server
  • In a Country Multiplex, with a z14 Model ZR1 server

The Transition Charges for Sysplexes offerings, previously announced in Software Announcements AP17-0265, dated July 17, 2017, AP15-0001, dated January 14, 2015, and AP12-0297, dated August 28, 2012, are updated to include the z14 Model ZR1 in three variations:

  • Transition Charges for Multiplexes (TC2)

    For existing qualified multiplex only, when two or more servers consisting of one or more z14 (all models), z13®, z13s, zEC12, or zBC12 servers with one or more z196 or z114 servers that comprise a TTO-eligible environment, those servers receive a reduction to CMLC pricing across the TTO-eligible environment. This reduction provides a portion of the price-performance benefit that is related to Technology Update Pricing (TU1) for AWLC . This is based on the proportion of z14 (all models), z13, z13s, zEC12, or zBC12 server capacity within the TTO eligible environment.

  • Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC3)

    When two or more servers that consist of one or more z14 (all models) servers with one or more z13, z13s, zEC12 or zBC12 servers comprise a TTO-eligible environment, those servers receive a reduction to AWLC or CMLC pricing across the TTO-eligible environment. This reduction provides a portion of the price-performance benefit that is related to Technology Update Pricing (TU3). This is based on the amount of z14 (all models), z13 and z13s server capacity within the TTO-eligible environment.

  • Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes (TC4)

    When two or more servers that consist of one or more z14 (all models) servers with one or more z13 or z13s servers comprise a TTO-eligible environment, those servers receive a reduction to AWLC or CMLC pricing across the TTO-eligible environment. This reduction provides a portion of the price-performance benefit that is related to Technology Update Pricing (TU3), which is based on the amount of server capacity within the TTO-eligible environment.

Rules for MSUs under TTOs

All MSUs that are used in determining any TTO reductions exclude capacity, which is 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.

Programs eligible for AEWLC

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

Terms and Conditions

Top rule

All terms and conditions apply that are associated with:

  • Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) sub-capacity pricing
  • ICA Attachment for Advanced Entry Workload License Charges
  • IBM Customer Agreement

In conjunction with software programs implemented with Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6), programs that have Tiered Workload License Charges (TWLC) will continue to be charged by using TWLC. These programs have one, flat monthly charge per IBM z Systems® server, which is based on a tiered structure.

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 the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6).

AEWLC terms and conditions described in the ICA Attachment for Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (Z125-8755) apply to Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6).

The Supplement for Technology Transition Offerings (Z125-8994) to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8538) and to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (Z125-8755) and to Attachment for Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965) and to IBM System z Machines Exhibit

The Supplement for Technology Transition Offerings (Z125-8994) to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8538) and to Attachment for IBM System z Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (Z125-8755) and to Attachment for Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965) and to IBM System z Machines Exhibit (Z125-3901) documents are updated for the five TTOs that consist of:

  • Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6)
  • Technology Update Pricing for the z14 (TU5)
  • Three, revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes program offering variations (TC2, TC3 and TC4)

AWLC terms and conditions described in the following documents apply to Technology Update Pricing for the z14 (TU5) and both Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offering variations:

  • ICA Attachment for Advanced Workload License Charges (Z125-8538)
  • IBM System z Advanced Workload License Charges Exhibit (Z125-8539)
  • Amendment for Aggregation of Charges for z/TPF (Z125-7357)

Country Multiplex Pricing terms and conditions that are described in the IBM Attachment for Country Multiplex Pricing (Z126-6965) also apply to Technology Update Pricing for the z14 Model ZR1 (TU6) and both Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offering variations:

Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC) are available as an alternative charge metric for eligible software programs running on a z14 Model ZR1 server in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex or Loosely Coupled Complex. If available for your specific configuration, you have a choice of selecting either Technology Update Pricing for the z14 (TU5) or PSLC, but not both, for your IBM software programs within the z/OS or z/TPF operating system families on a z14 Model ZR1 server.

In conjunction with software programs implemented with PSLC, System/390® Usage Pricing remains available for your respective eligible programs under System/390 Usage Pricing terms and conditions.
