what is Db2 v12 VUE?

we currently have "Db2 11 for z/OS". Our new managed services z/OS company ordered for us "Db2 v12 for z/OS Value Unit Edition"

What is the difference between the "generic" Db2 for z/OS and VUE?

thanks

(in response to william giannelli)
The only difference (that I have seen) is the pricing model – no functionality change, no service change

Only 1 zparm to add – nothing else to do differently

Thank You,

"It provides Db2 for z/OS data server functionality at a one-time charge price and is available for eligible net new applications or workloads."
https://www.ibm.com/products/db2-for-zos-value-unit-edition

Since you have a 'full' Db2 - it is, perhaps, unlikely, that you will qualify for "new applications
and workloads". I would strongly suggest that you get a copy of the VUE license and explicit
written confirmation that when IBM comes knocking your "new managed services z/OS
company" will be responsible for any costs associated with the incorrect license.

An earlier posting here said that the only actual difference is that when you run DSNTINST
you are presented with a copy of the license and have to acknowledge that you will comply
with it. I haven't seen the VUE license so I have no idea what it actually contains.

You are right to be concerned.
