AIX is a vital platform for core critical Business Applications such as SAP.

Traditionally, AIX has been and is still widely being used as an SAP© database server and SAP application server platform for SAPs NetWeaver© software.
The supported databases include most notably IBM Db2 and Oracle©. A large number of non-NetWeaver products from SAP are also supported on AIX.
In addition, AIX is one of SAPs strategic application server platforms for S/4 HANA©.
For the complete list of databases and SAP products on AIX see SAPs Product Availability Matrix (PAM).

The latest offering from IBM includes the SAP certified IBM Power Virtual Servers - colocated with IBM Cloud - on which you can run classic SAP ECC on AIX as well as SAP S/4 HANA on Linux. A high-end SAP SD benchmark has been published for this environment.

For details on SAP certified solutions see SAP Note 2855850 - SAP Applications on IBM Power Systems Virtual Servers.

AIX offers a number of unique features which allow you to optimally run SAP.
