| Subject: RE: WHY would I run Windows on my iSeries?
|
|
| jt,
|
| I think that it is a double-edged sword and sensible people could go
| either way.  Some would argue for an extremely robust backup solution
| with 7x24 maintenance, and then live with the very infrequent downtime.
| Others could argue for multiple, but less expensive solutions.
| Philosophically, I could go either way.  Those in the midrange
| community, probably tend towards the first case.

I agree.

|
| In this particular situation, in which we are considering running
| Windows and the iSeries in the same shop, I would not agree with your
| point about the payroll dollars.  Just because Windows might be running
| on an inboard processor does not negate the need for high-end Windows
| expertise within an organization.  Just because the backup could be
| performed on iSeries hardware would not eliminate that.  Windows is
| tricky and probably requires a higher level of expertise than the
| iSeries to achieve a moderate level of stability.

I agree, again...  I'm not PRECISELY sure how the IXS is supposed to make it
more robust than standard Windoze.  Seen press reports that it does,
however.

My client has just found it an easy way to deliver Domino, but I don't
really know the details.  Maybe it was a cost/footprint/and/or/other kind of
situation...
