I never said Wintel, you did. I said Intel. Pick your OS flavor and run with it. FYI, Azure is your thousand of applications proof of concept you are elusive to find and is very public :-). Or grab yourself a 64 processor x 8 core intel server, pick your OS, and theres your thousands of applications. Anyone can make something like Azure on premise if you got the know-how and money to pull it off. The same know how and money is required for i.
The only thing that destabilizes these systems is the application itself. Don't go blaming application from vendor XYZ and say "Microsoft" or "Linux" made a bad product. Vendor XYZ did, or better yet, programmer XYZ did :-)
There is nothing, zero that you can't do on other intel platforms that you can only do on an i.

We were talking about distributed application architecture. But you switched the conversation to hardware redundancy. Foul play. Let's say the IBM i server is synchronized with a remote backup to recover quickly from catastrophic hardware failure.
Were you ever going to get around to supporting your claim that Wintel servers can run thousands of applications "just like i"?

Your raid controller just failed on your single i box that runs EVERYTHING. Instead of just one of the web front ends failing, your whole system just went down. Hmm. Sounds like poor infrastructure design.
Theres your rebuttal.
