More Information on AIX

AIX is an enterprise-class UNIX operating system (OS) for the POWER processor architecture found in IBM Power Systems. Today’s global business must rely on an infrastructure that is secure, highly available and able to adapt quickly to changing business needs. AIX delivers these capabilities and more, with the performance, reliability and security that your mission-critical data demands. 


The AIX family of operating systems debuted in 1986, became the standard operating system for the RS/6000 series on its launch in 1990, and is still actively developed by IBM. It is currently supported on IBM Power Systems alongside IBM i and Linux.

With the introduction of AIX 7.2, IBM continued its tradition of providing new functions that dramatically improve system availability, performance, and flexibility while maintaining application binary compatibility. AIX 7.2, coupled with POWER8 technology-based systems, delivers a computing platform designed for big data that is optimized, secure, and adapts to changing business demands. Together, they deliver superior cloud economics with secure and open choices and incorporate innovation from a growing ecosystem that broadens application choice and enhances optimization
