 for AS/400
From V.E.R.A. -- Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms (September 2014) :

         Application System/400 (IBM), "AS/400"

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

      An IBM minicomputer for small business and
     departmental users, released in 1988 and still in production
     in October 1998.
     Features include a menu-driven interface, multi-user
     support, terminals that are (in the grand IBM tradition)
     incompatible with anything else including the IBM 3270
     series, and an extensive library-based operating system.
     The machine survives because its API layer allows the
     operating system and application programs to take
     advantage of advances in hardware without recompilation and
     which means that a complete system that costs $9000 runs the
     exact same operating system and software as a $2 million
     system.  There is a 64-bit RISC processor operating system
     Programming languages include RPG, assembly language, C,
     COBOL, SQL, BASIC, and REXX.  Several CASE tools are
     available: Synon, AS/SET, Lansa.
