It really depends on each client and what they have regarding hardware and software. If the client has a partnership with IBM or is using IBM software, usually they go with IBM hardware. If the client is a Dell partner, it usually goes with Dell hardware running Linux, and so on.
Well suited for Spectrum Protect/TSM backup servers, Database servers (DB2, SAP, Oracle) and enterprise servers that demand high workload and processing. P-series servers can also run Linux, not only AIX. Integrates well with IBM software. For smaller workloads you can go with x86, which is cheaper.
