Many organizations make use of IBM software programs and some also struggle with IBM’s licensing scenarios and metrics. IBM provides various different metrics for licensing and measuring usage of its software programs. The most common used metric is the Processor Value Unit (PVU). An end user can deploy the IBM software program licensed by Processor Value Unit in two different scenarios: Physical Capacity a.k.a. Full-capacity licensing and Virtualization Capacity a.k.a. Sub-capacity licensing.
