What is AIX?

At Indiana University, for personal or departmental Linux or Unix systems support, see At IU, how do I get support for Linux or Unix?

AIX is IBM's Unix implementation, which it develops for a number of its products, notably the IBM SP series. Other manufacturers, such as Motorola, also produce hardware that runs AIX. AIX incorporates elements of System V, BSD, and OSF/1, but includes enough unique features to make using, and especially administering, AIX somewhat different from working with other Unix implementations. Nevertheless, recent versions are compliant with most Unix standards.

For more about AIX, visit the IBM AIX website.

Also, read the newsgroup comp.unix.aix.

At Indiana University, UITS systems that run AIX include the Scholarly Data Archive (SDA).
