Migrating AIX to Linux

Today, everyone lives in a hybrid, multi-cloud world. The combination of continuously changing business drivers and complex, heterogeneous tech stacks means that virtually every organization has production workloads on-prem, in co-lo facilities, in private clouds, and in multiple public clouds. Moreover, your stack is likely often in motion, which requires you to manage workload migrations from one environment to another (and sometimes back again) as your needs change.
