PCI is not focused on intel servers. It is focused on best practices regardless of server platform. Intel servers can perfectly house hundreds/thousands of applications on a single box, just like the i. However most people chose not to as it's a single point of failure.

I agree, FUD.
I seem to recall that PCI says you cannot store Credit Card numbers for more than 3 days period and even if you do they must be encrypted. Most of the folks I work with that do Credit Card transactions store only the last four digits for any length of time.
And while I won't list them I know of MANY companies who's IBM i servers are connected directly to the internet with web and database on the same server. PCI seems to be interpreted to focus on Intel based systems where proliferation of servers is needed to support staff size and Microsoft and Oracle revenue streams.

suppliers that are Domino based...
