NearLine storage for BI 7.01


Dear SAP Gurus

I am BI consultant and have a query regarding implementing NLS solution for our BI system ( Netweaver 7.0 ehp1 sps7 ) , our database runs on DB2 9.7 Fixpack 7 and Operating system is AIX 6.1 . Our basis team is helping us on this and has told us thet DB2 NLS can be implemented for the solution but not sure on whether any new hardware or licensing cost is involved .

Basis team has forwarded us the notes 1405664 - DB6: Near-Line Storage Impl. (Supplementary Note) and an installation document from the service market place . we dont have any NLS experts here and have the following queries which our Basis team is rather not Sure

1 ) Whether NLS can be implemented with no additional support from IBM .
2 ) Whether any special hardware or other IBM services are required for implementing the same. We are using POWER HA servers ( AIX 6.1 version )

3 ) All our SAP servers are running under DB6 LUW 9.7 version , is it just that we install a new server with 9.7 and do the post configuration as described in the installation document

4) Is there any specific SAP partners for implementing near line storage?

Thanks ,
