With the IBM PureFlex™, a member of IBM’s family of expert integrated systems, you can reduce the time to deploy, manage and provision UNIX, Linux and Windows workloads onto a single PureFlex system. PureFlex arrives with built-in expertise for rapidly deploying infrastructure as a service on multiple platforms.

How IT managers voted on security

AIX wins hands down on security


Security has become an increasingly critical issue today and organisations have realised that security risks are major speed breakers in their path to growth. IT managers are looking to minimise security risks by using a trusted operating system and focusing all their energies on the organisation’s growth.

According to the ITIC 2011 Global Server Hardware and Server OS Reliability Survey, 90% of all IT managers who were interviewed rated AIX has highly secure. That’s 15 percentage points more that its closest UNIX-based competitor, HP UX. The IT managers who voted in favour cited AIX’s consistency, the inherent ‘bullet- proof’ nature of its source code and IBM’s quick turnaround time in fixing security issues as the primary reasons to choose AIX.

So, if you’re thinking UNIX for your organisation, think only AIX.


According to the ITIC 2009 Global Server Hardware and Server OS Reliability Survey,
9 out of 10 IT managers voted IBM’s AIX on Power Systems™ as the most secure OS.
