IBM Sub-capacity licensing lets you license an eligible software product for less than the full capacity of your server or group of servers. It provides the licensing granularity needed to leverage various multi-core chip and virtualisation technologies.
The sub-capacity software licensing terms are documented in the International Passport Advantage Agreement (IPAA). For this Agreement and Virtualisation Capacity Licence Counting Rules using Eligible Virtualisation Environments, visit http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage.
The IBM Licence Metric Tool (ILMT) helps you maintain an inventory of the PVU based software deployed for your Full Capacity or Virtualisation (Sub-) Capacity environment, and measures the PVU licences required by software Product. It is intended to help you manage your IBM software licensing requirements, and help you maintain an audit read posture. Customers are usually responsible for supplying hardware and installation services required for installing the tool.
Elyzium's ILMT Software As-a-Service offering means customers not need to maintain their own infrastructure to do this, the server component is located remotely at our secure datacentre and agents are deployed within customers infrastructure as usual. Elyzium will ensure reports are generated very 60 days to maintain compliance with IBM's Virtualisation Capacity Agreement.
