Multi-Version Measurement (MVM)

MVM for z/VSE removes time limits for running multiple eligible versions of z/VSE (VSE/ESA). Clients may run different versions of z/VSE (VSE/ESA) simultaneously for an unlimited duration during a program version upgrade. Clients may also choose to run multiple different versions of z/VSE (VSE/ESA) simultaneously for an unlimited duration in a production environment. Clients may use VSE/ESA V1, VSE/ESA V2, z/VSE V3.1, z/VSE V4, z/VSE V5, or z/VSE V6, in any combination. MVM allows clients to selectively deploy new software versions, providing more flexible control over their program upgrade cycles.

MVM replaces Single Version Charging (SVC), and the Migration Pricing Option (MPO).
