Previous articles have introduced the basics of Linux in logical partitioning, as well as networking alternatives for Linux, on iSeries systems. These articles covered the advantages of using iSeries for Linux in virtualizing resources (such as disk and network) and explained how to manage workloads better through subcapacity processor allocation. This article explains how Linux on iSeries can integrate with OS/400 to access data resident in DB2 databases, as well as flat files resident in the OS/400 Integrated File System.
A number of solutions can be built upon the virtual LAN features of Linux on iSeries to integrate Linux with
