advanced interactive executive (AIX)

Advanced Interactive Executive (AIX) is the name for IBM's Unix operating system. It runs on UNIX workstations and personal computers and is used in heterogeneous networks and on servers.

There are various versions of AIX, currently the most widely used version is AIX 5.x, which supports logical partitioning (LPAR). The following version AIX 6 should support the operating system virtualization. This virtualization technique can reduce the number of operating system images, thereby reducing the effort required to manage them, for updates, patches, etc. In addition, the AIX 6 release allows workload partitions to be moved back and forth between different physical servers without the need to restart applications.
