Whether you're thinking about selling products over the Internet or collaborating over an intranet, the AIX® operating system (OS) provides the necessary connections.

The AIX OS was the first to support the new IP Version 6 protocol, providing additional IP addresses, security and integrity starting with AIX version 4.3 in the late '90s.

AIX has more recently received the ready for IPv6 certification in 2006, underscoring IBM's commitment to providing our clients with the technology that you need.

The AIX OS also integrates other key Internet technologies, such as the popular Java™ Development Kit (JDK) with an associated Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler. And because Java technology is architecture independent, it helps you leverage your investments in Java application development on multiple platforms.

On your intranet, the AIX OS bridges the gap between a wide array of operating environments and applications, permitting you to leverage your existing IT investments while providing flexibility for the future. This interoperability is enabled by strong support for open industry standards, allowing AIX to communicate with a wide array of systems. The AIX OS supports a variety of servers and PC clients with a broad range of interoperability products from IBM and independent software vendors. The AIX Expansion Pack includes full-function evaluation copies of these products. It also contains additional tools, such as the Web servers you'll need to help turn your business into an e-business.
