Last week we announced that the Migration Pricing Option (MPO) is available for all z/VSE 6.1 products with a new version.
MPO for z/VSE V6 is already in effect. MPO for CICS TS for z/VSE V2 and IBM TCP/IP for z/VSE V2 can be requested now and will be in effect for SCRT Reports submitted beginning in May 2016 with SCRT Version 23.7.2 or later or Version 23.13.2 or later. SCRT Version 23.7.2 and Version 23.13.2 are now available. The May reports need to be submitted manually (for one month only). SCRT will report the combined concurrent peak MSUs for both versions on a row containing the name of the product with a suffix of "(ALL)", for example, "TCP/IP for z/VSE (ALL)".
MPO enables the combining of the new version and older version(s) MSUs to calculate the new version billable charges on the same machine. Customers pay for the combined MSUs at the new version price. All Customers are eligible for the MPO while migrating to the new version. The eligibility period is 18 months from the date of licensing the new version. Eligibility ends at the completion of migration or 18 months, whichever occurs first.
