The IBM I Application Server license is still available. It is intended for those customers using IBM I to run non DB2 workloads such as Websphere, Java, PHP, etc..
There is no different code base and licensing use is based on the honor system(aka IBM audits). It is not available on systems with used based licensing (S814).
For large systems, the i operating system has processor entitlements. A processor entitlement is needed for each processor running the i operating system. In addition, for these models, customers have the option to purchase i operating system Application Server entitlements. The Application Server entitlement provides an entitlement for the i operating system without a entitlement for DB2. Customers who wish to deploy applications which do not require DB2 will find the i operating system Application Server license to be a more affordable option for deploying these applications.
