One thing to remember is that this is a year comparison number - last year wasn't so good. But 25% is nice that's for sure. I can't find it but I though somewhere I thought Mark Shearer indicated that they had 3,000 new iSeries customers over the last year or this year or something to that affect. Although, I don't think there to many going on in Indy....... Michael Crump Manager, Computing Services Saint-Gobain Containers 1509 S.

Revenue growth from S&TG eServer products was driven by iSeries midrange servers, which increased 25 percent; pSeries UNIX servers, an increase of 15 percent; and xSeries servers, which increased 11 percent. Revenues from the zSeries mainframe product decreased 4 percent compared with the year-ago period. Total delivery of zSeries computing power, which is measured in MIPS (millions of instructions per second), increased 18 percent. In addition to eServers, revenues from Storage Systems and Microelectronics increased 11 percent and 14 percent, respectively." I'm not an expert at interpreting numbers but, it looks rosy for the Iseries. I wonder what regions the sales are happening in? -- This is the Non-Technical Discussion about the AS400 / iSeries (Midrange-NonTech) mailing list To post a message email: Midrange-NonTech@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/midrange-nontech or email: Midrange-NonTech-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-nontech.
