We just got a call from a customer, who wanted to buy a z/VSE license, but did not know whom to contact.
We are pleased about every new customer. Therefore I want to address this topic today.
We prepared a web page with ordering information and our pricing models.
You may order z/VSE by phone, email, fax or IBM Shopz (web page / tool).
We have the following pricing models:
-- Midrange Workload License Charge (MWLC) for all IBM System z9, z10 and zEnterprise servers except z114
-- Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (AEWLC) for z114 servers
Both pricing models support sub capacity pricing. To participate in sub capacity pricing you need to run the Capacity Measurement Tool (CMT), which is part of the z/VSE operating system. The CMT tool records the MSUs (Million Service Units) used by your workload. Each month you have to prepare a sub capacity report (SCRT) based on the CMT data and send it to IBM billing.
On our "How to buy" web page you will find links to all related ordering as well as pricing topics
