IBM i

For Power Systems including AS/400, iSeries, and System i

Companies rely on an efficient IT infrastructure to support business-critical applications. They need to know that their systems and business processes are deployed to meet the highest service levels defined by their business units, plus can be adapted to handle every new business opportunity. IBM i (formerly known as i5/OS) running on an IBM Power Systems server offers a highly scalable and virus resistant architecture with a proven reputation for exceptional business resiliency. Running applications based on i has helped companies over many years to focus on innovation and delivering new value to their business, not just on managing their data centre operations.

Having a more dynamic infrastructure (DI) is all about selecting the right systems and software to enable businesses to move with agility and speed. Getting there with IBM i means implementing proven solutions on a platform you can trust. By choosing the latest Power platform, IBM i applications get world class performance plus DI flexibility, with the opportunity to lower monthly operations costs.

IBM i integrates a trusted combination of relational database, security, Web services, networking and storage management capabilities. It provides a broad and highly stable database and middleware foundation for efficiently deploying business processing applications, with support for over 5,000 solutions from over 2,500 Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). i solutions are offered through an extensive, highly skilled worldwide network of IBM Business Partners that is backed by IBM’s trusted services and support infrastructure.

IBM develops, fully tests and preloads the core middleware components of i together upfront, whereas on other platforms, operating system, database and middleware integration is done in the data centre. The pre-integration and testing of i is a key factor in enabling companies to deploy applications faster and maintain them with fewer staff. Virtualisation and workload management are also built into i to enable you to run multiple applications and components together on the same system, driving up system utilisation and delivering a better return on IT investments.
