About Us

UNIX Health Check for AIX and UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux are unique software products developed by UNIX Health Check. It all started in 2004, when a group of UNIX enthusiasts from around the world, came together to develop a method to continuously improve UNIX systems. Many organizations and many UNIX administrators face the same kinds of issues with their UNIX systems daily, which usually can be avoided by following best practices. But that's not easy, because there are so many best practices, and there are many ways to configure a UNIX system. On top of that, UNIX vendors frequently release updates, and incorporate many new features regularly, resulting in more complex environments, and even more ways to configure a UNIX system.

UNIX Health Check started off as a best practice document and checklist, which resulted in more stable UNIX systems, but still meant a lot of cumbersome work for UNIX admins. Developing software to automatically run through the check list, was the only logical next step. Nowadays, UNIX Health Check software scans UNIX systems in as little as a couple of minutes, running hundreds and hundreds of checks.

We're a fully virtual organization. We don't have offices, but instead we hire UNIX certified associates in different countries around the world, who deal with many different customers, and have expert knowledge of UNIX environments. This allows us to work at low cost, which returns in reasonable pricing towards our customers. It also allows us to see a wide variety of UNIX systems, share knowledge between our associates and learn what best practices for AIX and Red Hat should be.

We have clients across the globe, with most of our clients in North America, Europe and Australia. Some of our clients are GAP, Trinity Health, Dell, Atos Origin, Delhaize, Meridian, Sonic Healthcare, Linde, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, Bull SAS (Atos), Stockholm City Council, CHC, and Carters.
