The Shark and the iSeries

My company is considering buying a SHARK system to run its iSeries processing. I have heard numerous rumors that...

Shark does not work well with iSeries. Is this true and is there data out there that can substantiate the claims?

Thanks, Dave.

My advice here would be to look at the research done by the industry analysts to confirm those rumors. Objective third party opinions are a good place to start to either confirm or deny rumors, as some vendors like to use "FUD" in their arguments against competitive products.

I personally have not heard that rumor, nor have I done testing with iSeries and the Shark so I have no opinion either way.
