AIX, the future of the UNIX operating system
Businesses today need to maximise the return on investment in information technology. Their IT infrastructure should have the flexibility to quickly adjust to changing business computing requirements and scale to handle ever expanding workloads – without adding complexity. But just providing flexibility and performance isn't enough; the IT infrastructure also needs to provide rock-solid security and near-continuous availability and while managing energy and cooling costs.
These are just some of the reasons why more and more businesses are choosing the AIX OS running on IBM systems designed with Power Architecture technology. With its proven scalability, advanced virtualisation, security, manageability and reliability features, the AIX OS is an excellent choice for building an IT infrastructure. AIX is the only OS that leverages decades of IBM technology innovation designed to provide the highest level of performance and reliability of any UNIX OS
