you turn, the prospects don't look good. If I understand correctly,
corporate legal will not allow you to run HTTP workloads on your IBM i

the platform will likely fade into irrelevance (that's the hard place).

Well put.

If I were in your position, I would try to "reason" with corporate legal.

Legal wants to see precedent set by others in our line of business

I think our P7 is under utilised and would love to see more work running

While PCI compliance is relevant - my gut feel is that more folks may be
partitioning their servers for other reasons, which we have not discussed.

Could be. I myself would love to have a completely isolated test
partition where I can use library lists that are exactly the same as
production library lists, user profiles secured the exact same way as
production user profiles, and so on.
