(System i is the server formerly known as "AS/400"...I know, I have to do that translation in my head every time someone says "System [insert letter here] and it gets to be a real pain, but what are ya gonna do?)
These are intended to be "all in one" systems that businesses can leverage on a per-user basis, allowing your IT resources to grow with your business.
Pay as you grow, as it were. The System i Express solution was designed for 5 to 40 users and features IBM's POWER5+ processor.
We've found that the typical small business has, on average, seven servers deployed on site. This ends up driving the TCO way up, what with all those people and management costs keeping the servers up and running, the security patches installed, etc.
The System i Express solution features built-in workload manager that allows you to run multiple applications independently on one system, instead of deploying a new server every time you need another application (which is what you would typically do in a Windows-based environment).
Or in other words, add computing capacity without adding floor space.
