Four important innovations of AIX and IBM Power Systems

By Udo Sachs posted Tue June 15, 2021 11:51 AM


AIX on IBM RISC machines celebrates its 35th birthday this year!

As myself and the AIX community celebrate 35 years of the OS, it was a pleasure taking the time to reflect on the four important innovations of AIX! Please take a moment to view my perspective in the short video below. I hope you agree that AIX is still "the rock solid operating system for enterprise organizations"!

Udo, thank you for your insights!   This brought back memories of being in the lab testing DLPAR, LPM and Live Update in the early days of my career at IBM!   It's great to hear that you were able to take advantage of these technologies for your business as they were being introduced.
