    SAN Volume Controller Storage Software Usage:

    • Usage is measured in terabytes (TB) and tracked based on the amount of storage managed by clusters at a customer within a country

    • Storage virtualized is derived from the total size of all virtual disks



    SVC removes physical “site” license boundary

    • SVC standard software (including FlashCopy and Metro/Global Mirror features) is now licensed to the customer (enterprise), no longer requiring customers to obtain a separate license to deploy SVC at additional physical sites within a country

    • Change applies to new software transactions and new software maintenance renewals/reinstatements only, and changing from multiple sites to a single customer identity may require customers to transfer entitlement records currently in AAS into Passport Advantage

    • Combining under one customer identity does not use any value exchange of TBs in different tiers, and customers are not entitled to any refunds for software licensing

    • For example, EZ Storage, Inc. within the UK has 10 TB SVC licensing at physical site A (London), 8 TB at site B (Manchester), and 2 TB at site C (Southampton). In Ireland it has 10 TB at site D (Dublin) and 6 TB at site E (Cork), all under current software maintenance. At the time of renewal, the customer:
