Here's some info from

IBM Servers

At the core of the technology used to host the content for the
Wimbledon site are System p5 550 Express servers. These servers are
located in three separate IBM hosting locations. They are configured
with Linux LPARs for Web serving using IBM HTTP Server (Wimbledon.org)
and AIX LPARs for WebSphere Application Server (Commenting, Feedback
and Player Search), WebSphere Business Integration Message Broker,
Cache logging and content distribution servers.

With IBM System p5 systems, organisations like Wimbledon can:

* Simplify – enable server consolidation and so streamline
infrastructure management
* Optimize – improve business responsiveness and operational speed
by dynamically reallocating resources to logical partition (LPARs) as
dictated by business goals, without administrative intervention
* Gain flexibility – support the use of different operating
systems (OS) and application workloads on LPARs within the same
physical server
* Lower costs – reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by
significantly improving server utilisation and reducing system
management costs. .

So...they're using good hardware anyway. This PDF
(http://www-03.ibm.com/innovation/grandslam/en/pdf/Wimbledon2008_GBC03014-GBEN-00.pdf)
mentions i...I wonder if they're using it for the DB2 capabilities?
They also mention DB2 for LUW.

I used to keep up with that, and while there may be an i in the
background, most of the work is done by AIX systems.

Yesterday, while waiting to get my hair cut, I read in the Sept 2008 Sports
Pro magazine an article about IBM sponsorship of Wimbtedon Tennis in Britain.

According to the article, IBM state of art support runs on AS/400 server.
