DS8880 Family Highlights
• Built on the new Power 8 processor technology
• Two different models are available (DS8884 and DS8886)
• Based on industry standard 19” rack
• 600 mm by 1200 mm foot print (roughly 24” x 48”)
• Sits on two standard data center raised floor tiles (one wide / two deep)
• Power system size reduction to fit into 19” rack
• Uses single phase power only
• 8U DC UPS
• No option for 3 phase power
• Uses new small form factor HMC
• 1 or 2 HMC option
• Both HMCs install into base frame eliminating the requirement for external
location for second HMC

Base Function License Examples
• 35TB of total capacity
• Qty = 4 of FC 8151 (10TB) is required
• 81TB of total capacity
• Qty = 9 of FC 8151 (10TB) is required
• 81TB capacity, upgraded to 150TB total capacity
• Already licensed for 90TB, add Qty = 1 FC 8151 (10TB), plus
• Add Qty = 4 of FC 8152 (15TB) = Total authorization is now 160TB
• 150TB capacity, upgraded to 159TB total capacity
• Already licensed for 160TB

Copy Services License Feature Codes
• FC 8251 – Copy services up to 100TB (10TB per FC)
• Each feature code adds 10TB of Copy Services authorization
• Usable capacity utilizing Copy Services functionality needs authorization
• Feature codes are tiered and cumulative, just like base function FCs

• Copy Services function authorization is not delineated between FB and CKD
capacity – just the total usable capacity for CS

DS8880 Copy Services License Examples
• Scenario 1
• Customer wants to perform FlashCopy for 10 TB on the source, the purchase of 20 TB of capacity for
Copy services license is required on the source
• Scenario 2
• Customer wants to perform Metro Mirror for 10 TB and FlashCopy 10 TB on target, the purchase of
10 TB on the source and 20 TB Copy services license for the target is required
• Scenario 3
• Customer wants to perform Global Mirror for 10 TB. This will require 10 TB on target for GM
Secondary and 10TB for GM Journal which means the purchase of 10 TB Copy Services on the
source and 20 TB Copy services license for the target is required
• Scenario 4
• Customer wants to perform Global Mirror for 10 TB and perform a FlashCopy on the target for
practicing DR while not impacting normal GM. This will require a GM secondary, GM Journal and
FlashCopy volume on the secondary system. Source will require 10TB and target will require 30TB
Copy Services license
• Scenario 5
• Customer wants to perform Metro Global Mirror for 10 TB. This will require 10 TB on source, 10 TB
on the secondary (Metro Mirror target) and 20 TB Copy services license on the tertiary (GM
secondary and GM Journal volume)
• Scenario 6
• Customer wants to perform zGM/XRC 10 TB, the purchase of 10 TB and 10 TB of capacity for Copy
services license on source and target respectively is required

Copy Services License Scope
• The former licensing paradigm defining a license scope will still be evident when
authorization keys are applied to a subsystem
• Scope has applied in the past and could be set via DSFA to FB or CKD or ALL, for some functions
• Previously named licensed functions will still be displayed upon query via DSCLI or the GUI
• Base Function License – Scope will be FB, unless zsS is also ordered, in which
case scope will be ALL
• CS Function License – Scope will be FB, unless zsS is also ordered, in which
case scope will be ALL – a “CS Scope” of CKD will not occur
• zsS Function License – Scope will be CKD
• Flashcopy item of interest:
• The Flashcopy feature can be ‘detected’ by software such as DFSMSdss and
automatically used, if licensed. With the Copy Services authorization on DS8880, such
software will detect that Flashcopy is available and attempt to use it – perhaps outside
of the planned authorization levels.
• IBM is considering making a setting available to disable Flashcopy at the subsystem
level, but this is not available in R8.0. To avoid the automatic invocation of Flashcopy, it
may be necessary to use software settings to disable this function.

z-synergy Services License Feature Codes
• FC 8351 – z-synergy Services up to 100TB (10TB per FC)
• Each feature code adds 10TB of z-synergy Services authorization
• Feature codes are tiered and cumulative, just like base function FCs
• This licensed function is authorized on the basis of physical capacity and has a license scope of
CKD. The total authorization level must be equal to or greater than the total amount of physical
capacity within the system that will be logically configured as CKD
• FC 8352 – z-synergy Services 100.1TB to 250TB (15TB per FC)
• FC 8353 – z-synergy Services 250.1TB to 500TB (25TB per FC)
• FC 8354 – z-synergy Services 500.1TB to 1250TB (75TB per FC)
• FC 8355 – z-synergy Services 1250.1TB to 3000TB (175TB per FC)
• FC 8356 – z-synergy Services 3000.1TB to 6000TB (300TB per FC)
• FC 8360 – z-synergy Services 6000.1TB to 10000TB (500TB per FC)
• FC 8300 – z-synergy Services are active
• FC 8350 – z-synergy Services are inactive
• Either FC 8350 or (FC 8300 and FCs 8351-8360 are required)
• Special consideration, in rare circumstances, may be required for customers that use the zOS
Distributed Data Backup (zDDB) function. Please see speaker notes if applicable.

• Feature Codes should be applied to both the 283x-98x order and the
corresponding 283x-LF8 order
• These features apply to the base frame (Model 980 or 981) only
