Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC)

When you elect AWLC for a particular operating system on a CPC, all of that operating system family's sub-capacity eligible MLC products are licensed under AWLC on that CPC. Non-sub-capacity eligible MLC products are considered FWLC products and their pricing is a fixed, monthly charge unrelated to the capacity of the CPC on which they run. Sub-capacity AWLC pricing applies to eligible z/OS® and z/TPF software products and their associated middleware products when running on an Start of changeIBM z13™End of change, zEnterprise® EC12 (zEC12), or zEnterprise 196 (z196) CPC. Sub-capacity AWLC pricing also applies when running on a zEnterprise BC12 (zBC12) or zEnterprise 114 (z114) CPC, but only if that CPC is in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex® that consists only of zEnterprise CPCs.
