Taming the "Wild West" That Is TCP/IP

Are you sure you're properly securing your IP applications?

mike faustWritten by Mike Faust

If your IBM i is running TCP/IP, you have a problem. While the availability of IP applications is a blessing in that it gives your company an easy way to access your systems based on a set of defined standards, it also gives hackers an easy way to get into your systems and data using defined standards. Utilizing secure IP connectivity for your Telnet, FTP, and HTTP connectivity can help to curb the problem, but what about all of those other IP applications?

IBM i Trends and the IBM i Cloud

Is the i headed for extinction? No, not at all.

Editor's note: This article is an introduction to the white paper "IBM i Trends and the IBM i Cloud," available free from the MC White Paper Center.


Probably as far back as two decades ago, when even IBM still officially called the platform AS/400 (as many of its users still do today), some recognized industry pundits, as well as many armchair IT forecasters, were forecasting the imminent doom of what is now known as IBM i on Power Systems. It hasn't happened yet. And as this white paper asserts, it isn't likely to happen soon.
