Advantages of SQL on the iSeries

How fast is SQL on the iSeries, and what are the advantages and disadvantages of using SQL on the iSeries?
SQL on the iSeries IS fast. I don't do benchmarks any more but I used to. For "standard" queries, the performance is excellent. I had one customer where the CIO had decided to dump the iSeries in favor of Windows servers. They had lots of VB apps using SQL Server. When the company had to do a month end close, the tech staff would "sneak" the SQL tables on to the iSeries and "crunch" the numbers there using SQL because it was about four times faster than SQL Server in those days!
