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).
