Overall Satisfaction with IBM AIX

Aix is utilized across the organization for workloads that require exceptional stability and performance.
  • Aix has exceptional security, if you configure it properly to best security practices.
  • Using the new Power9 platform we are able to have great price to performance ratios on our workloads.
  • Aix is now available in a cloud option so we are looking at extending our hybrid configurations.
  • While there are options to install some standard Linux tools like Bash, they are not always easy to procure
  • Allowing easier flexibility in how some tools and CLI options work would make it easier for admins to float between operating systems.
  • Positive ROI over time
  • Flexibility of deployment with premise, cloud and hybrid options
Standard Linux distributions which are used more as commodity servers do not offer the ease of scale and growth that we see with our Aix implementations. IBM owning the HW and SW portions of the stack allows for tighter integrations and better performance windows.
High-performance OLTP database transaction processing.
