The introduction of AIX 5L signifies the success of the Project Monterey development initiative that includes IBM, Intel and SCO (Server Software Division - acquisition by Caldera Systems, Inc. pending). The primary goals of Project Monterey have been to enhance AIX with proven technologies and to deliver the industry's best enterprise-class UNIX® for Intel's new 64-bit microprocessor based systems (Itanium).

Linux compatibility and support for both Power and Itanium architectures make AIX 5L unique in the UNIX market. This new generation of AIX incorporates technologies from IBM's DYNIX/ptx, SCO's UnixWare, and Linux; making it the leading open enterprise UNIX for systems using both the new IBM Power4 and Intel Itanium microprocessors.

IBM is working to implement Linux API compatibility within AIX and to deliver a common set of application development tools and utilities across AIX and Linux. Together, these will serve to enhance the application portfolio available to AIX customers as well as provide customers with greater flexibility in how they choose to implement their e-business solutions.

Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) will have the added benefits of reducing development expense while addressing a wider spectrum of customer needs within the large market opportunities of Power and Itanium.

What you will learn

  • You will learn to install and configure AIX 5L for Itanium on Intel's Lion and Bigsur Solution Developer Vehicles (SDVs).
  • You will have the opportunity to surf through the AIX 5L OS in a hands-on workshop tailored for all participating ISVs in the early porting effort.
  • You will also learn IBM Distributed Debugger, Native Software Development Environment, and AIX 5L differences.
