Flexibility to Roll-Over What You Don’t Use

The proliferation of Hybrid Cloud environments creates a more dynamic workload scenario for the mainframe. So, for times where you don’t consume the full baseline, Broadcom has added the flexibility to overcome resource underutilization by rolling over unused MSUs to the next true-up period. Similar to cellular phone plans, unused MSU’s roll over to the next period for consumption within the contract term.
