We are an AS/400 shop.

We are an AS/400 shop. There is a tendency to stick with the AS/400 for everything including a data warehouse platform. I would like to find the facts and figures to support bringing in Unix RS/6000 (AIX) which I believe is probably a better performing data warehouse platform. Could you direct me to any information to support this direction?


Sid Adelman's Answer: You may need the performance, but perhaps a more important issue than performance is support from other tool vendors. There are far more products that support the data warehouse environment for AIX than for AS/400. IBM will be able to give you the information on RS/6000 performance.
