What is AS400?
Originally introduced in 1988, it has been a mainstay of businesses across many industries for decades. Over the years, the software and hardware of IBM i/AS400 have undergone several name changes with updates and revisions. Name changes have included AS400, Series Servers, and IBM system i. The rebranding of IBM iSeries products resulted in the launch of the present-day IBM Power Systems, also called IBM i/AS400 or iSeries systems.
Unlike traditional computer systems, AS400 has a unique architecture. In addition to data replication, mirroring, backups, and recovery, the database management system, DB2, is highly optimized for performance. With its virtual memory, AS400 manages resources efficiently while handling multiple tasks simultaneously.
Integrating AS400 with other systems and technologies is one of its key advantages. With its support for various programming languages, including RPG, COBOL, Java, and PHP, developers can easily create and integrate custom applications with existing systems.
The AS400 is used extensively in finance, manufacturing, and healthcare industries, where dependability, security, and flexibility are crucial. Its distinctive design, resilient operating system, and seamless integration with other technologies make it a preferred option for companies of all sizes.
