Well, IBM doesn’t do it very often, but last week it raised the monthly and annual maintenance on AS/400 and iSeries servers and related auxiliary expansion boxes and peripherals associated with the vintage OS/400 servers that populate its vast installed base. The OS/400 server platforms out there in the world were not the only machines affected. Vintage RS/6000 and pSeries, System/390 and zSeries, and other Netfinity and xSeries platforms also had increased maintenance charges. So did various older models of IBM’s tape and disk products.
