Advanced Interactive eXecutive (AIX) is a UNIX-based multitasking non-free operating system first released in February 1986 by the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). In the beginning, it included a journaling file system. Then, IBM has constantly improved the software with processors, disk and network virtualizations, hardware resource allocations, and mainframe designs.
Companies that depend on high performance—financial institutions, insurance companies, computer software developers, governments, banks, economic enterprises, and healthcare services—choose AIX because it offers one of the most solid and reliable virtual infrastructures. AIX allows consumers to intensify their data security through system hardening, permissions, multiple identity authentication methods, and other innovative guarding measures.
What is AIX?
AIX is an open standards-based program that provides secure and solid infrastructure solutions for enterprises. AIX’s main feature is its custom security platform.
Successful enterprises use AIX for their servers because it provides robust security options, such as the Kerberos V5 network and reliable tunnel authentication. Also, it allows the company system administrator to distribute the memory, CPU, and disk accesses between different managers. AIX system supports IBM’s 64-bit processor and is compatible with 32-bit applications. Plus, it runs most Linux apps and has full support for the latest Java updates.
AIX is not like any “commercial” consumer operating system, and on the contrary, it is suitable for servers working for large businesses where IT experts are part of their teams. To summarize, AIX is the basis for many business applications and database settings.

- Is AIX a mainframe?
No. AIX is a proprietary UNIX variant of IBM. Therefore, it is an operative system, a set of programs a computer system has that manages hardware resources while providing services to software application programs.
- Are AIX and Linux the same?
On the one hand, Linux is a group of open-source Unix-like operating systems, and its distributions include cloud computing, embedded systems, mobile devices, computers, laptops, servers, and supercomputers. On the other hand, AIX is a series of proprietary operating systems provided by IBM, and its target system types are Server, NAS, and workstation.
While AIX is suitable for administrators, Linux is the program made for and by hackers.
- What is AIX based on?
AIX basis is the UNIX System. It is one of the four commercial OSs with The Open Group’s UNIX 03 standard certified versions.
