IBM to Migrate Green Screen Users
Thousands of customers who use IBM's AS/400 "Green Screen" apps may soon be migrated to its newer eServer iSeries technology.IBM announced today that it will attempt to migrate potentially thousands of customers, in what its calling an unprecedented effort. The company will look to migrate thousands of customers who use IBMs AS/400 "Green Screen" applications to its newer eServer iSeries technology. The mainframe-class partitioning technology of the eServer allows small and mid-sized businesses to consolidate multiple workloads into a single server.
To make the migration more palatable, IBM is offering discounts of up to 50 percent for those making the switch by year-end. IBM, of Armonk, New York, will also provide some similar discounts on software and subscriptions for customers who make the move in the third quarter.
