Server upgrades
AS00 Gurus, I work for a midsized General Insurance Company  and our core business application runs in As400,  in the exercise to upgrade as400  server hardware and OS, a local IBM reseller is proposing us the following 2 options 
  •  system p ( Server 8202 Model E4C) +  system i OS  V6.1 (or) 
  • 7402- C08 Deskside HMC  + sytem p (8202 Model E4C)  + Power VM standard + system i  v6.1 in one partition 
The problem is I am more into application development and programming and don’t have much exposure in hardware capacity planning and system administration. our application modules are develop in RPG 3, RPG IV and ILE, we have 60 - 70 end users and planning to modernise application modules    Any suggestion on the following points would guide me in implementing the project
  • Which hardware option will be the best for our shop? 
  • The required software tools which we may need for future developments and application modernization.
  •  check list  in planning and executing the migration
 Any advice would greatly assist and help me Thanks in advance. Nithyanand 

Software/Hardware used:
AS400 270, RPG3, RPG IV ILE, AS400

    Minor tip is to be sure you have source code for all programs. You will need to recompile everything for V6.1 tho there is a nice tool that helps you thru this. Do lean on the reseller to provide answers too.
