IBM System I General Overview IBM’s production of the IBM iSeries mid-range systems lies between mainframe computers and microcomputers. These systems are part of the ‘IBM i” family of OS. IBM I systems are entirely business oriented, and were designed for the users of IBM OS400, IBM’s proprietary OS.

History The AS/400 platform was introduced in 1988 and in 2000 it was renamed to ‘i series’ and then in 2006 it was again renamed as ‘System i’. In 2008 new System I offerings were commonly merged with ‘System p’ offerings and rebranded as IBM Power Systems. 

Features System I models share the following common features usually in all the models included in this series.        

Hardware: AS/400 and System I, based on CPU architecture of Internal Micro-Programmed Interface, shifted to RISC based CPU architecture.          

Programming languages: System i supports programming languages like C/C++, Java, PIBM, COBOL, Assembly, Smalltalk, BASIC, Perl, Python etc. Java is supported fully in these systems including JVM either 32 Bit or 62.         

Software: Supports library based OS in form of ‘IBM i’, it do also supports Lotus Domino, AIX, Windows 2000, Linux. AIX applications are provided with environment with which these applications can run natively here.        

Instruction set: System I boxes are strengthened with high level instruction sets - this feature has helped in the durability of iSeries hardware. Under the name ‘Technology Independent Machine Interface” (TIMI), it is a virtual instruction set independent of instruction set of the CPU of its underlying machine. Yes, this concept is quite the same as the VM architecture of some programming languages like .NET.
