Appliance Install

Appliance Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Appliance Install is an installed copy of the program that is included on a single unit of supporting hardware. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Appliance Install of the program.

Application Instance

Application Instance is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. An entitlement is required for each instance of an application connected to or managed by the Program. An application in a test, development, staging, or production environment is each considered to be a separate instance of the application and each must have an entitlement. As well, multiple application instances in a single environment are each considered to be separate instances of the application and each must have an entitlement.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

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.
