Let's hear it for the workhorse!
With so much industry focus on the latest/newest/hottest software technologies, it can be easy to lose sight of the solutions that have stood the test of time -- solutions like the UNIX OS (the queen mother of all software workhorses) and AIX, IBM's own powerful implementation of UNIX. For nearly 25 years, our AIX team has been quietly-but-diligently working to make it the most reliable UNIX variant available. And the release of AIX 7 takes our UNIX workhorse even further, with new capabilities for virtualization, security, availability, manageability, and much (much) more. Plus, it's binary compatible with previous versions of AIX, so your existing AIX apps will run on the latest version. Get a closer look at all of the features and functions in our new AIX 7 overview, or take it for a spin by downloading our AIX 7 Open Beta.
AIX 7 promises not to let all of the attention go to its head.
Until next week,
