PPU Program Requirements

  Table of Contents

  Index

You must comply with the following HP Utility Pricing Solutions program conditions to participate in the PPU program:

  • Maintain the PPU software on every partition in the complex, including virtual partitions on HP-UX systems (PPU software is a non-intrusive and low-overhead software module)

  • In an HPVM environment, PPU is installed and configured only on the host, not on the guest Virtual Machines

  • Maintain the HP-required hardware and software operation of the PPU utility meter

  • Maintain the PPU software connection from each partition to the utility meter (this is required on every partition in the complex, including virtual partitions on HP-UX systems)

  • Migrate to later PPU software versions when they become available

For specific details on your individual PPU program requirements, refer to your Utility Pricing Solutions contract from HP or your authorized channel partner.

IMPORTANT: Participants of the Utility Pricing Solutions program who do not meet these requirements may be in breach of contract. This can result in unnecessary expense for both the PPU program participant and HP.
