• Subject: AS/400 As Web Server

Hi All,

Currently, we've got a production AS/400 (9406-720) that we're also using
as our web server (running Domino). Our web team has been discussing
getting a second box of some sort to put outside the firewall, to act as a
sort of "public" server -- it would handle our internet site and pass any
requests for more secure information back through the firewall. The team
has been assuming that it wouldn't make much difference what kind of box
this second server is (they've been leaning towards "N---T---"), but
recently the question was raised as to whether there might be particular
advantages to using a small AS/400 (oops, I mean iSeries eServer).

I figure this list would recommend this idea -- my question is, what sorts
of arguments would you use to convince an AS/400-agnostic that this would
be a good choice? Also, would anyone have any general recommendations for
what size/features would be appropriate?

TIA,
