I have seldom recommended the integrated Windows server, particularly
for centralized data centers.  One application strikes me as appropriate
however:

If a company has a requirement for multiple remote sites with both
iSeries and Windows applications and does not have technical staff at
those remote sites.

* You could bring down the Windows server, transmit an updated system
drive via SNADS or FTP to the remote iSeries, and then bring up the
Windows server.  (Oversimplified but doable).

* You could reboot the server remotely.

* You could take advantage of the integrated backup capability and have
one less point-of-failure at the remote site.

This strikes me as a very appropriate use of the technology.  It would
require a fair amount of planning, but would increase uptime on the
Windows side and decrease support costs.
