How to classify AS/400

I am in the process of writing a plan to integrate some software  into our AS-400 system. When referring to this system, is there a category I can classify it as? For example…”The purpose of this proposal is to help defer the costs of integrating our new software with our ____________________.” I am not sure if my audience would understand what the AS-400 is, so I thought possible “classifying” it would assist their understanding. Any assistance you may be would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Trent Hariaczyi

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It originally was calissified as a “Midrange System”
Now I believe that description is misleading.
You could just say ‘iSeries that is running our current applications” and then explain if anyone has a question.
How to you refer to it now when talking about current applications?

    I might just say ”The purpose of this proposal is to help defer the costs of integrating our new software with our server.” Tom
