We no longer use our iSeries (model 520), but have to keep it until at least 2018 (for legal reasons to do with the data).
Our maintenance will expire this year, and will not be renewed. What is the best way to 'store' the iSeries so that it has the best chance of being operational should we ever need to access the data on it in, say, 7 years time?
Leave it switched on 24 x 7 (not my preferred solution).
Leave it switched off until we need it.
Leave it switched off, but power it on once in a while (how often?).
Thanks for any advice you can give. If anyone has links to IBM advice that I can show to the boss that would be even better.
