AIX Version 7.1

Open, secure, scalable, reliable UNIX operating system for IBM Power Systems servers

AIX 7® is available in three different editions: An AIX Express Edition that includes most of the functionality of AIX 7 Standard Edition but has some restrictions on vertical scalability and does not include the AIX Profile Manager and Cluster Aware AIX capabilities, an AIX Standard Edition that includes AIX with no vertical scalability limits and an AIX Enterprise Edition that includes AIX 7, the Workload Partitions Manager™ for AIX, the IBM Systems Director Standard Edition, PowerSC, SmartCloud Entry, VMControl Enterprise Edition, Storage Control and the IBM Tivoli Monitoring product. The base AIX installation media is the same for all three editions: The client specifies the edition to be installed during the installation process. A new command, “chedition” can be used to identify which edition is in use, or can be used to change the edition dynamically without rebooting.

All editions of AIX 7 are available on all models in the IBM Power Systems hardware product line.
