Overall Satisfaction with IBM AIX

IBM AIX is used by the entire organization. We run propriety processing apps in production, mostly legacy software.
  • It is extremely reliable
  • Feature rich, fully fledged *IX system
  • Delivers good performance on IBM POWER
  • Management of the virtualization, especially using IVM can be clunky
  • Positive: with a lot of processing power the AIX servers allowed us to consolidate hardware.
I do not need to reboot AIX boxes every week, like I do MS Servers. It is not unusual to see 1-2 year uptime on my AIX LPARS.
Response time could be longer that I'd like.

Do you think IBM AIX delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with IBM AIX's feature set?

Yes

Did IBM AIX live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of IBM AIX go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy IBM AIX again?

Yes

*IX based applications that require excellent uptime. The hardware servers/clusters AIX is typically deployed on are very robust with a lot of redundancy built is and allowing many interventions done concurrently, without downtime.
