Today LeadFerret, the free B2B data site, unveiled their latest directory, comprised of iSeries Professionals. This directory of detailed contact information, including email addresses, telephone numbers, and, where applicable, social media links, gives access to professionals who consider themselves highly skilled when it comes to IBM iSeries servers.
Originally named AS/400 (system/400), then iSeries, then System i, and now IBM Power Systems, the iSeries servers (as most people still refer to them) are tough to define. In 2003, Frank G. Soltis, IBM’s Chief Scientist, wrote an article titled “What Is an iSeries?” In it he states, “It’s an IBM eServer. It’s a midrange server. It’s a business computer. It’s used by businesses all over the world. It’s sold in more countries than McDonald’s hamburgers. It has the largest number of customers of any IBM server. It’s all of this and more, but we still don’t have a good definition of an iSeries and what makes it unique among servers… The one thing that makes an iSeries an iSeries is OS/400. The specific hardware isn’t important. It has and will continue to change in the future as more and more common components are shared across IBM’s servers. SLIC, the operating system, is also not the big differentiator. It has undergone major changes over time and will change even more in the future as system software components are also shared among IBM servers. OS/400, on the other hand, is unique to the iSeries. It is OS/400 that provides the control environment and the application environment that make the iSeries something very special. It is not the simple operating system that its name implies. Maybe someday in the future we will have the opportunity to give OS/400 a name that properly reflects its true value.”
