Phoenix Software Develops State-of-the-Art Products for Modern Enterprises

The three pillars that guide our development philosophy are:

  1. Leveraging the latest hardware/software technology.
  2. Providing the best possible user experience.
  3. Software modernization.

Why do we focus on leveraging the latest technology?

  • We care about performance. The latest technology usually means “better performing.”
  • We care about reducing customer costs. The latest technology usually helps reduce customer costs.
  • Technology is just plain cool!

Use these tables to list all CPCs where CYGNET will be installed.

At least one site is required.

Aggregate Pricing Qualification Information

For z/OS® systems, you can sometimes aggregate MSUs associated with a sub-capacity eligible product across a Parallel Sysplex®. Aggregation means when you run the sub-capacity eligible product in multiple LPARs on CPCs which are all part of the same Parallel Sysplex, you pay the base charge for the product only once. The values shown on the sub-capacity report are not affected by aggregation, but IBM® adds up all the MSUs for aggregated products across each CPC in the sysplex when calculating your charges for those products. For aggregation, the Parallel Sysplex must meet the following requirements:

  • All CPCs in the Parallel Sysplex must be physically attached via coupling links to a common coupling facility and via timer links to a common external time reference (such as the Sysplex Timer®).
  • Images in the sysplex must account for 50 percent of the total MVS™ workload on each machine during prime business hours. In other words, MVS-based LPARs participating in the sysplex must represent at least half of the CPC’s MVS-based processing capability.
  • All images in the sysplex must have at least one common systems enablement function activated to use the coupling facility. For a list of system enablement functions, see z/OS systems enablement functions.

At least one of these common systems enablement functions must be activated on all images in a sysplex for the software on that sysplex to participate in a pricing aggregation.

  • Application Data Sharing
  • GRS Star Implementation
  • JES2 Checkpoint in the Coupling Facility
  • RACF® database caching
