IBM Advanced Interactive eXecutive(AIX)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_AIX AIX 7.2(October 5, 2015) exploits POWER8 hardware features including accelerators and eight-way hardware multithreading. Live update for Interim Fixes, Service Packs and Technology Levels – replaces the entire AIX kernel without impacting applications


runs on IBM Power Systems and on IBM PureSystems Version 7.3 was released in April 2016 requiring little or no on-site attention from IT staff during normal operation

AIX programs are binary compatible with IBM i when using its PASE (Portable Applications System Environment)


Latest release 11i v3 Update 16 / March 2017



Available on IBM Power Systems™ servers and supported by the IBM AIX®, Linux® and IBM i operating systems

PowerVM for PowerLinux is logically equivalent to PowerVM Enterprise Edition, and includes Live Partition Mobility.

https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/fe313521-2e95-46f2-817d-44a4f27eba32/entry/Virtualization_Options_for_Power_Linux only supported on the “L” models. NOT on the S824L GPU model, nor any POWER7 systems. PowerKVM does not support the pHyp interface, so OPAL (OpenPower Abstraction Layer), which is an alternative hardware interface, was created. order the system with PowerVM:get both the vet codes and machine code for PowerVM
