Last time, we had a look at how to set up IBM i Access for Web and briefly explored the Web-based 5250-style interface. We'll go a little more general this time, showing you how to do some neat things with the product.

Partner TechTip: The Consolidation Revolution

One IBM Power Systems frame can host IBM i, Linux Red Hat or SUSE, or AIX/UNIX partitions in a single "footprint."

chuck losinskiWritten by Chuck Losinski

The history of IBM i has seen trends of decentralization as well as consolidation. In the first move toward consolidation, single data centers had multiple AS/400 systems, with user environments controlled strictly through subsystem technology. The next trend was consolidating multiple partitions on a single iSeries running OS/400 to physical I/O adapters and possibly virtual TCP/IP interfaces.
