Extending your reach
When managing a business, every detail is important, particularly information technology. That's why more and more companies are running their mission-critical operations on a UNIX® operating system. With its proven scalability, reliability and manageability, UNIX is an excellent choice for building an IT infrastructure. There are a number of UNIX operating systems available, but only one leverages IBM experience in building the solutions that run businesses worldwide. And, only one UNIX operating system leads the industry in vision and delivery of advanced support for 64-bit platforms with an affinity for Linux®. That operating system is AIX 5L™.
Conforming to The Open Group UNIX 98 Base Brand industry standard, AIX is fully integrated to support 32- and 64-bit applications running concurrently, in their full range of scalability. It operates across the range of IBM eServer™ p5, IBM eServer™ pSeries®, IBM eServer™ i5 and IBM RS/6000® workstations, servers and massively parallel supercomputers. A datacenter utilizing AIX 5L is ideal for business applications that require very high throughput, quick response times and 24x7 availability.
AIX 5L Version 5.2 moves the AIX 5L operating system into the next stage of autonomic computing infrastructure. It provides innovative scalability technology while continuing to offer application affinity with Linux, tools that simplify systems management, and leadership security mapping between heterogeneous platforms. AIX 5L V5.2 also has new and improved functions for operational flexibility, workload management, system availability and system resource use in the datacenter.
