Description
Bottom rule

Netezza Platform Development Software is a fully virtualized offering that delivers the software functionality of the IBM PureData System for Analytics appliance. It can be installed and run on any hardware that meets the minimum requirements and supports users who want to develop and test database environments powered by Netezza technology.

Netezza Platform Development Software consists of a set of VMWare vSphere virtual machines that run on top of a virtualization platform using a virtual network. These are VMWare ESXi 5.1 hypervisor images that you can quickly instantiate on your own servers and VMWare farms.

Netezza Appliance Software is compatible with TwinFin®, IBM Netezza 1000, and IBM PureData System for Analytics appliances. You can use the same interfaces (ODBC, JDBC, OLE DB), client APIs, and applications to access and manage data for both environments.

Note: Hardware and VMware licenses are not included with Netezza Platform Development Software.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Netezza Platform Development Software V7.1 requires a dedicated environment with the following minimum requirements:

For complete specifications, contact your IBM representative and request a copy of the " IBM Netezza Application Software Users Guide" document.

Software requirements

A license for VMware vSphere 5.x Essentials edition, or later, is required.

Netezza Platform Development Software can be deployed on a dedicated or shared VMware vSphere environment. The dedicated environment is a hardware and software setup where only one instance of Netezza Platform Development Software is running and no other machines except VMware vCenter Server are allowed.

The shared environment is a multi-node hardware setup where many independent Netezza Platform Development Software instances run together with other virtual machines. Although the minimal requirements are the same as for the dedicated environment, you must scale it up to support all of the Netezza Platform Development Software instances as well as the workload generated by other virtual machines.

Note: All environments for Netezza Platform Development Software must have a VMware vCenter Server. Deployment on a stand-alone ESXi hypervisor without a VMware vCenter Server is not supported.

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a readme file, or other information published by IBM, such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language.

Limitations

Netezza Platform Development Software expandability, performance, and capacity are limited through license agreement on resource usage as follows

Lifecycle notice:

IBM Netezza Platform Development Software V7.1 and IBM Netezza Platform Software (NPS) V7.1 have the same lifecycle, which is tied to the lifecycle of the PureData System for Analytics appliance. For details about the lifecycle for this offering, contact your IBM support team.

Performance considerations

IBM Netezza Platform Development Software is intended for development and test purposes only. Performance and benchmark information may not be disclosed, per the license agreement.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use.

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance

The IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011) applies for Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) and does not require customer signatures.

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information number

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement website

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

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.
