Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (AEWLC)

Coinciding with the announcement of the IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114) server, IBM introduces a new software pricing structure called Advanced Entry Workload License Charges (AEWLC). The AEWLC pricing metric leverages the reporting mechanisms and existing Millions of Service Units per hour (MSU) tiers of the Entry Workload License Charges (EWLC) pricing metric and the Midrange Workload License Charges (MWLC) pricing metric while extending the software price performance provided by the EWLC and MWLC tiers. AEWLC applies only to eligible z/OS, z/TPF, and z/VSE operating systems and their associated middle ware programs when running on a zBC12 or z114 server.

Preparation for AEWLC and SCRT

The SCRT User Guide contains information about the minimum system requirements, one time setup and processing of the SCRT data.
