Overall Satisfaction with IBM AIX

AIX currently runs critical ERP systems across the organization. The stability, ease of use and robustness of the platform allows us to focus on the applications and worry less about the implementation and uptime concerns.
  • Performance Management
  • Volume and Filesystem management
  • Ease of Use
  • Backup and Recovery
  • Bringing new features online
  • Configuration Management
  • Difference enough from Linux to create concerns
  • It has allowed us to reduce licensing counts for key systems
  • Volume and Filesystem resizing reduces downtime
  • Performance Management is great, lots of switches that can be moved to compensated for badly performing applications.
AIX is a more mature operating system than Linux and its stability reflects positively on this. Safe application handling and uptime are great positive features as well.
Windows is not even a choice on the availability front, and patching and there are huge concerns about security on the Windows platform.
[Well suited for] Any application that can benefit from higher uptimes, online management and a robust platform (Power systems). It is less appropriate for platforms where cost is a key concern and the architects are ok with limited uptime and failures can be routed around.
