What is CMP?

Country Multiplex Pricing (CMP) is way of measuring and pricing sub-capacity program MSUs. This sub-capacity offering allows z/OS and z/TPF clients to use their IBM Z capacity within a given country—without the constraints of Sysplex aggregation rules or many of the limitations of previous reporting methodologies—so they can:

  • Move workloads without additional costs
  • Measure one peak across a set of machines
  • Grow with lower price tiers
