Surprising, I thought IBM had killed that edition. Learn something new

Subject: IBM i licensing: DB2 IBM i vs non DB2 IBM i (aka "Application
Server entitlement")

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).

Large systems
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.
