Query regarding IBM Spectrum Suite support renewal
May 14, 2019 06:59PM
We are moving away from TSM/Spectrum in the coming months. Our annual IBM Spectrum Protect Suite Terabyte annual software subscription and support renewal is due however we are looking to not renew it as we will soon be backing up our servers using a different product. We have been advised in writing (email) by our IBM renewals specialist that we will still be able to use the TSM software once the current software subscription and support contract expires. Has anyone else had experience with this and confirm it is correct?

We are doing the same as you, switching to an alternate solution.

We were told by our IBM representative that the LICENSE to use the software was still in place after the end date of the contract.

The only thing lost is the ability to get technical support through the IBM ticketing system. That date corresponds to the end-date of your support contract.
