The IBM S/390 Integrated Server is a made up of two key processing components.
An Enhanced S/390 Microprocessor complex (P/390) provides the S/390 ESA
instruction set and runs the VM/ESA, VSE/ESA, and OS/390 operating systems
unmodified. Most S/390 applications run unmodified on the IBM S/390 Integrated
Server. The second component is an I/O and Service Processor (IOSP) utilizing a
high-performance Pentium II processor.This IOSP provides an execution
environment for the programs which provide the S/390 I/O emulation.(Throughout
most of this publication, the Enhanced S/390 Microprocessor is referred to as
simply the P/390).
Here are some of the highlights of the IBM S/390 Integrated Server:
Enhanced S/390 Microprocessor (P/390)
Enhanced S/390 Microprocessor with 256MB ECC standard S/390 memory
Can use IOSP memory to emulate S/390 expanded storage.
I/O and Service Processor (IOSP) with an on board high performance Intel
Pentium II processor –L1 cache is 32KB and L2 cache is 512KB, memory of
Internal Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) RAID-5 DASD controller
Sixteen hot-swap DASD bays
Expansion slots: Sixteen 32 bit Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) I/O
slots and three Industry Standard (ISA) slots
AGP On-Board Video with 2MB memory
Integrated 10/100Mbps PCI Ethernet controller
Two high-speed serial ports and one parallel port
IBM PS/2 mouse
1.44MB diskette drive
4mm DDS/3 digital audio tape (DAT).
Flexible disk configuration
N+1 Power Redundancy
Each IBM S/390 Integrated Server requires:
IBM OS/2 Warp Server
IBM eNetwork Personal Communications for OS/2
Note: The above two need not be ordered separately as they are
pre-configured with the P/390 support.

S/390 operating system
All currently marketed VM/ESA, VSE/ESA, and OS/390 operating systems and their
associated S/390 products are available for the IBM S/390 Integrated Server.
all System/390 software orders, the distribution is on currently supported media,
including the 4mm DAT tape media (digital audio tape) cartridge for most current
products. (Base VM/ESA is available today on OMA CD-ROM media.)
As part of the S/390 software order, the customer can request the appropriate
preconfigured CD-ROM.The preconfigured CD-ROMs contain S/390 system
images that provide a “load and go” system.Included on the CD-ROMs are I/O
device maps to help the customer get started and a set of unique
tools to take
advantage of the dual operating system environment.The preconfigured CD-ROM
consists of the base operating system and one or more utility programs.
Internet access will be required for service and support, therefore an additional LAN
adapter card or modem will be necessary. The internet connection itself can be
provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
