AS/400 Upgrades

Know Your AS/400 to iSeries Upgrades

Update!

Throughout the 1990s the AS/400 was the pre-eminent workhorse of America's IT infrastructure. The line was refreshed in 2000 and renamed the eServer iSeries and was again renamed the System i in 2008. This generation of midrange servers was phased out in 2008, to be replaced by the IBM Power Systems range in 2008.
