Looks like Microsoft is taking aim at iSeries …

If you read the article, there are a number of great marketing points that IBM should pick up on…
- there are iSeries customers who have gone years without having to reboot their systems.
- You just don’t get that level of reliability and availability from other operating systems
- It’s also had tremendous security. It’s never had a virus or a successful hacking attack.
I’m a little disturbed that ASNA is signing up with Microsoft. In the past I’ve used a lot of ASNA’s midrange products.
