Big iron

Big iron, as the hacker's dictionary the Jargon File defines it, "refers to large, expensive, ultra-fast computers It is used generally for number crunching supercomputers such as Crays, but can include more conventional big commercial IBM mainframes"

The term is often used in reference to IBM mainframes, often when discussing their comeback/survival after the assault of lower cost Unix systems More recently the term is also applied to powerful computer servers and computer ranches, whose steel racks naturally invoke the same association

The expression may be compared with the slang expression for heavy handguns, derived from the slang "iron" for a handgun "shooting iron", as exemplified by the classic country music ballad Big Iron by Marty Robbins about "the ranger with the big iron on his hip"
