I have versatile experience on Intel platforms and a focus on the IBM POWER platform.

Started with MS-WIndows, SCO-UNIX and Novell’s Netware on the Intel platform I decided to choose a very stable Operating System on a very stable platform: IBM’s POWER machines. So, the last 14 years KF Solutions is specialised in IBM AIX and Linux and everything that has got to do with that.
