AIX® 7 is the only UNIX operating system designed to scale in support of today's massive transaction and throughput computing workloads – with up to 1024 threads on POWER7. It includes new virtualization capabilities designed to simplify the consolidation of older, AIX V5.2 applications as well as built-in clustering capability that provides a scalable clustering infrastructure foundation for PowerHA SystemMirror resiliency solutions. AIX 7 is guaranteed to be binary compatible with AIX 6, AIX 5L™ and even earlier versions of AIX, and is available in Standard, Enterprise and Express Editions. Early access for testing is now available via the AIX 7 Open Beta program.
