Often when I talk to individuals about AIX and the features within AIX 7.2 or Linux on Power, be it at clients or at vendor events, the following questions or statements are always posed:
“I am restricted to what I can do within my companies AIX production environment so I cannot test or play with any of the new features”
“I have to write an AIX certification test and I am not too sure if I have prepared correctly?”
“How can I gain access to the latest version of AIX or Linux on Power?”
“My company has not bought a license to run Linux on a POWER server”
I have also posed the following questions regarding personal experiences and the challenges of keeping skills current.
“How do you practice with AIX or Linux for your certifications or keep your skills current?”
“How do you practice your knowledge for that crucial job interview?”
Quite often, the simple answer is that they don’t have an environment with the latest operating system versions installed to adequately prepare themselves.
Now this is all possible through AXIAL CONSULTING.
