The AS/400 (Application System/400) was first introduced by IBM on June 20th, 1988. The AS/400 can be utilized for different business facets. Some models are designed as systems that provide resources to other computers, also known as a “server” in a network of computers, while others are set up for use with terminals or “display stations”.The AS/400 uses the PowerPC microprocessor with its reduced instruction set computer technology. Its operating system is called the OS/400. With multi-terabytes of disk storage and a Java virtual memory closely tied into the operating system, IBM hopes to make the AS/400 a kind of versatile all-purpose server that can replace PC servers and Web servers in the world’s businesses, competing with both Wintel and UNIX servers, while giving its present enormous customer base an immediate leap into the Internet.
