Accessing the Cloud

Since its debut more than three decades ago, IBM’s AIX* OS has continuously evolved to meet the changing business needs of large enterprises. It’s now becoming a powerhouse for organizations seeking to leverage the efficiency and flexibility offered by the cloud.

For instance, a large European financial institution is now managing more than 1,500 virtual AIX servers using the PowerVC* cloud management offering, which interoperates with open-source cloud management technologies like OpenStack. This allows system administrators to deploy and configure new virtual servers (LPARs) in minutes. They also can perform software maintenance on many AIX systems as a single task using Chef, an open-source configuration-management automation tooling IBM has added to AIX.

Like this European enterprise, more organizations are moving to cloud deployments. That might entail constructing their own private cloud, accessing an off-premise cloud service or putting together a hybrid cloud that combines off-premise and on-premise elements.
