  • Page 6: Introduction And Preface

    1 Introduction and Preface “With its announcement of z/VSE 4, IBM has executed a hat trick. It has brought new technical life to an operating system that has not been part of the swift flow of mainstream computing. It has brought the usage-based pricing model used by z/OS mainframe shops to the VSE users who had previously been neglected.
  • Page 7 Ø Lower operational costs resulting from coordinated management Ø Environmentals Ø Personnel optimization VSE brings all those features into a focused coherent solution that provides strong ROI today, and room to grow for tomorrow. IBM-2007-04569-E-01 ©2007 Sine Nomine Associates...
  • Page 8: The Z/Vse Pie Strategy

    2 The z/VSE PIE Strategy The IBM VSE team have coined the acronym “PIE” to scribe a strategy of “Protect, Integrate, and Extend” for z/VSE: Ø Protect existing customer investments in core z/VSE programs, data, equipment, business and IT skills, plus business processes, and end user training. This is achieved by modernizing applications by extending z/VSE resources to the web;...
  • Page 9: Extend

    Access to strategic middleware such as WebSphere and thus to a range of new applications is also a key to enhancing the value of z/VSE. IBM-2007-04569-E-01 ©2007 Sine Nomine Associates...

    CICS Shared Data Tables, VSE Virtual Disk, or more and larger buffer pools. z/VSE is supported on the IBM System z9 EC and z9 BC servers as well as the IBM eServer zSeries z990, z890, z900 and z800 servers.

    Midrange Workload License Charges (MWLC). This scheme is available on the IBM System z9 EC and z9 BC processors only and provides for improved pric e performance with both full-capacity and sub-capacity modes of operation.
  • Page 12: Scsi Disk Support

    The impact of the technologies described in the previous sections is two-fold: 1. More effective integration with other mainframe and non-mainframe systems. 2. Provides the building blocks which positions z/VSE to fully participate in enterprise-wide SOA strategies. IBM-2007-04569-E-01 ©2007 Sine Nomine Associates...
  • Page 13: Pricing And Roi

    Midrange Workload License Charges (MWLC) is a monthly license charge price metric on the IBM System z9 Business Class (z9 BC) and the IBM System z9 Enterprise Class (z9 EC) servers that applies to z/VSE V4 and 12 key VSE middleware programs. The exception is for the z9-BC A01 which is subject to the zELC pricing mechanism.
  • Page 14: What Counts As Sub-Capacity

    Charge (MWLC) licensing model. “CSI will support the full-capacity and sub-capacity MWLC options for customers running z/VSE V4 on IBM z9 Business Class and z9 Enterprise Class servers. The CSI implementation will result in lower licensing fees for full-capacity licenses and additional savings may be achieved by moving to the sub-capacity licensing option.
  • Page 15: Reporting Sub-Capacity Utilization

    (of course, your mileage may vary): “I just got our April software bill from IBM for the first month on our z9 under z/VSE 4.1 and MWLC. We were paying $22,965 per month on our z800 under z/VSE 3.1.2. The April bill is for the same software and it is $12,318: a difference of $10,647 per month.
  • Page 16: Z9 Hardware

    A full TCO analysis of these chances is predicated on accurate pricing, and thus the actual TCO results will differ greatly by customer, as IBM prices their solutions on a custom basis according to the customer's portfolio of applications and hardware.
