Single Order Validation Application (SOVA) performs a number of technical validation audits for IBM Servers, Storage Systems and associated IBM software. SOVA allows you to identify fulfillment and manufacturing order issues before you submit your order to IBM. The order is specified in a configuration report (CFReport file, CFXML file, PIP file), generated by a supported IBM product configurator.
Response performance from the SOVA web site server is consistent with response time for other internet applications. You should expect this request to be completed in 15 seconds or less for a typical CFReport. Large or complex configurations could take longer. A request which takes over 5 minutes to complete will be timed out and you may request it be managed by SOVA Operations.
