IBM Power Systems: IBM i, AIX


Extend your investment runway

Today, hundreds of thousands of businesses are operating IBM Power Systems with IBM i (formerly known as AS/400 or iSeries) or AIX to power their most mission-critical applications.

However, the talent pool for those systems is shrinking yet the installed base remains strong. In reality, IBM i (AS/400) remains one of the most powerful operating systems on the market today, as it offers tremendous scalability, security, reliability, compatibility, and modernization opportunities.
